Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's Beverly Hills mansion, in which they lived the entire time they were married (2001-2005), is exquisite. What made it all the more special was the way the once-golden couple of Hollywood clubbed their design ideas to transform the majestic French Normandy-style mansion originally built in 1934. 

At the time, the two were not only deeply invested in their marriage, but also their 'forever home' in which they put in three years of collaborative work. And that resulted in beautiful interiors, a private entertainment room, pub, tennis court, and the much-talked-about bathroom that was installed with a giant bathtub. 

Obviously, Brad had sex on his mind and that was what drove him to re-do their bathroom in their Beverly Hills mansion. "The bathroom was the first thing in the house I worked on at the time when Jen and I were really hooking up strong,” he told W magazine in 2001 and had added, “Things are on your mind…and I guess I had a dirty mind at the time.

Brad and Jennifer's dreamy abode also prided itself about an original fireplace, swimming pool, and lush green yards, Home Journal reported and added that it's a five-bedroom home spread across 11,173 sqft.

Jennifer is a huge design person. She's all about cozy, though. Talking to Architectural Digest, the 'Friends' actress said if she hadn't been a screen actor, she would've wanted to become a designer. "I love the process. There’s something about picking out fabrics and finishes that feeds my soul," she added. 

Brad, in his latest outing with HGTV's 'Celebrity IOU,' talks design as well. In an effort to gift makeup artist-friend, Jean Black, a souped-up garage that combines work and pleasure with equal aplomb, the 'War Machine' actor throws in his two cents about how hosts Drew and Jonathan Scott could give the space a facelift by maximizing the sqft available on hand. 

Even though they have gone separate ways for a long time now, there are chances they've retained lessons from their first reno project together. And this brings us to the question whether Brad's design be still influenced by Jennifer's? No way to confirm that but we can tell you that Brad sure knows his way around construction and design.
