Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Have an “Entertainment Barn” and Now You’ll Want One
Married actors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher recently welcomed Architectural Digest into their sprawling modern farmhouse atop a hill outside of Los Angeles, designed to look like “an old barn, something that had been here for decades, that was then converted into a house,” as Kutcher described. The house is homey yet huge, sat on 6-acres of farmable land, and sporting airy vaulted ceilings, a barbecue pavilion, and an “entertainment barn” complete with 19-foot glass sliding doors and a baroque-looking crystal chandelier.
“We thought it would be funny to have this incredibly opulent thing hanging in a barn,” Kunis said of the 10-foot-long chandelier. “It kind of takes the piss out of the property.”
The entertainment barn moonlights as a guest house when family and friends come to stay, and because it’s attached to the main house, Kunis and Kutcher seemingly take advantage of the space whenever they can, and have been using it as a backdrop for their TV Zoom interviews since the pandemic started.
Kunis and Kutcher worked with Vicky Charles of Charles & Co. to furnish the open floorplan of the place, flanked with rough, unfinished barnwood and floor-to-ceiling windows.
“Over time, the design moved away from a traditional farmhouse aesthetic to something more contemporary,” Charles said of the space. “Wrought-iron chandeliers and big chesterfields were the wrong clothes for this body.”
So, Charles took inspiration from the items Kunis and Kutcher already had — including that massive crystal chandelier and two custom-made silver throne chairs Kutcher had commissioned while traveling in India (which ended up in the master bathroom). “I got this job because I promised I could make a home for those, shall we say, formidable pieces,” Charles joked to AD.
And just like that, an “entertainment barn” just made its way onto everyone’s dream house list of must-haves — crystal chandelier included.
