Inside Rita Ora's Victorian-Era Sanctuary | Open Door | Architectural Digest

  • Today critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Rita Ora welcomes AD to London for a tour of her extraordinary Victorian-era home. Ora finished furnishing her new place with vintage finds from London’s famous Portobello Road Market - and most of the items she’d already owned and used in previous homes. Her sister and manager, Elena Ora, is responsible for arranging the furniture and interior designer Joanna Plant was brought in to add “little bits and bobs” to tie everything together. As she works on her third album, Ora couldn’t be happier with the calm and grounding home base she’s created. “My exterior self is super flamboyant, colorful, and I’m really proud of the decisions I make. Internally, my interior self is the opposite. I wanted my inner self reflected in my home.”
    Rita Ora is an international critically acclaimed singer-songwriter with over 10 billion world-wide streams, four #1 UK singles, and holds the record for the most Top 10 singles for a British female artist in the UK in history with a total of 13. In addition to being one of most successful female artists in the UK, she also lends her voice to the series Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight on Netflix, and will star in the upcoming film Tin Soldier. As a multi-talented industry leader, Rita also launched the award-winning Próspero Tequila with Conecuh Brands and premier Master Distiller Stella Anguiano, where she serves as Chief Creative Partner.

      It’s probably a grade I listed building meaning, it has high historical significance to this country so it can’t be altered (structurally) but you will be allowed to add to it and make it bigger or restore it. Can’t tear down any original features though thank goodness. That’s why I love England ❤

    This home made me so happy! I can't believe something like this can exist in London. I was totally expecting it to be super glam because its Rita but I'm really glad she appreciates and respects the history of the space. I think that's so important to maintain the character of a home, but it also makes it feel so much warmer and more inviting. And she still found ways to add her style and personality to it in a way that made it feel fresh and organic. I just love it.

      It’s a grade 2 listed building. There’s a listed building council, as well as the local conservation committee who will limit what she can and can’t do with the property I.e. all listed fabric (doors, cornice, skirtings, floors, windows) May need to be restored or replaced like for like.

      And if things go sour financially she literally can sell it and for a bigger price now, so she'll still remain a multimillionaire. But I'm sure it's not about the money and it's priceless to her, cause you can really feel the respect she has for it and it's history and it radiates through the screen how sentimental this house is to her. It's a home. It really is. With an amazing past. Amazing.

      @Evening Star my point is that when a celebrity “does” something it’s not the same as a regular person doing it, and these videos are overly staged on top of that. It’s just a yawn 🥱 I bought a Victorian house myself, and am not disagreeing that the property has been kept nice.

    • Evening Star
      Evening Star Ay əvvəl +5

      @N B that point you are making, doesn't hold any water. Of course she used designers! She mentioned it throughout the video. What they were saying was that Rita and her team did a good job of restoring the homes' classic and historic touches. So many people will buy historic homes and mansions, to gut out everything that is historic and classic! They modernize a historic home and remove all of its historical elements. Rita didn't want that to happen, as it was the rich history of the home that drew her to purchasing this specific house.

    Literally one of my fav homes featured on this channel.
    It’s nice when someone comes into a home with history and original architecture and it’s appreciated and not turned into a “flipped” home project.

    This house is so warm and fuzzy. Celebrity homes are usually ultra modern and luxurious. This has the luxury aspect and it's homely. Love the historical touches. She's so lucky.

    This is gorgeous! The way she honors the house's history, but modernized it and gave it her own identity is respectful and has quite a lot of character! It's a wonderful house, money put to good use.

    I am so proud of Rita, she's come a long way, I remember when she started out in the UK, I am curious to see how her house looked back in the 1800's when it was owned by the Art illustrator, absolutely beautiful, I love it, especially the garden.

    With your chosen home for yourself that indeed looks a sanctuary, you have a good balance of the old and the new inside you. But it tells me more who you are Rita that you have much humanity. I already can tell you have a compassionate heart and soul. God bless you more.

      Not my type of home but I respect her taste. You would also need multiple cleaners to keep it looking the way it looked in this video. Especially the big garden. If you don't clean it daily there would be full of spider Webs everywhere
