Christina El Moussa may still film Flip Or Flop with her ex-husband, Tarek, but that's not stopping her from striking out on her own. The HGTV star recently closed on a $4.1 million house in Newport Beach, CA, taking it on as her next big project — and the subject of the first episode of her new solo series on the network, Christina On The Coast.
Though the show doesn't debut until early 2019, the Realtors behind the home — Jonathon Curci and Scott Cappelli of First Team Real Estate — shared some photos of the 4,870-square-foot space. It's too soon to tell how Christina will renovate the space (she's hinted on Instagram that she's been getting in touch with her boho side), but one thing's for sure: It'll be 100 percent her vision.
While the Yorba Linda home she once shared with Tarek had a more European, ornate look, her Newport Beach four-bedroom is sleek and transitional. "This home is certainly a clean slate for Christina El Moussa," South Carolina real estate agent Devon Jones Bisognani told . "It seems more relaxed."
You be the judge:
Months before Christina put her house on the market, she gave a full tour of the place. The master bedroom was mostly neutral, with sumptuous textures everywhere (silk! fur! mother-of-pearl finishes!).
The furnishings will change completely, but it's worth noting the bones of the space. And that the look caught Christina's eye. 's Shannon Wilkins redesigned the entire home before it went on the market and the HGTV star scooped it up.
Christina designed her kids' playroom with their favorite things in mind: a long table for coloring and doing crafts, a tent filled with their favorite toys, and row after row of books for story time. It isn't a total departure from the rest of the house; keeping in Christina's style, the walls, table, chairs, and rug are all a pale gray.
That barn door may have Chip and Joanna Gaines written all over it, but it's in line with Christina's too: She describes her style as "rustic glam."
Dark cabinets and gleaming marble gave this kitchen serious wow factor — though anyone who stopped by would probably be even more stunned by her full-size wine fridge.
One thing both homes have in common — a massive, marble-topped island. Christina's said she likes being able to pull up bar stools and have breakfast as a family, so it's fitting this kitchen has the same setup.
The family room — and the open kitchen right next to it — were the two places Christina spent most of her time in when she lived in Yorba Linda. It featured a gigantic, L-shaped black leather sofa, a large glass coffee table, and silver picture frames and candlesticks on the mantel. More neutrals, more glam flourishes.
Oh, and in case you were wondering: Christina's team don't-hide-your-TV.
White walls with a matte black trim feel very modern farmhouse — and similar to the style in Tarek's new bachelor pad.
Christina said she didn't change that much after Tarek moved out — except the backyard. That got a serious overhaul, turning into an oasis, complete with a rock slide, waterfalls, and a mini putting green.
Her new home also has a pool, but it wouldn't be surprising if the star remodeled the backyard to become even more of an epic play land for her kids to run around in. Cabana-style umbrellas are cool and all, but it's hard to compete with waterfalls and a rock slide.
