Queen Latifah, rapper/record producer/actress, has rented the Hollywood royal Jane Fonda's Atlanta condominium for a short-term period. Fonda recently decided to move back to Los Angeles and bought a one-bedroom in the Sierra Towers, according to the Aol Real Estate.
Fonda put her home on the market for $4.5 million or $10 K a month about a year ago. When no one has visited her home for purchase, she lowered the price to $1.95 million.
Now, Queen Latifah will temporarily occupy the 4,700-square-foot, two-story condo, which became Fonda's home after her split with media tycoon Ted Turner in 2000. The duplex has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a voluminous main living space with soaring windows and double height ceilings and a petite but expertly equipped kitchen.
Dana Elaine Owens also known as Queen Latifah will be living it up in the Atlanta condo with views of downtown and midtown and a host of comforts like two fireplaces, underground parking for four cars and two balconies. The post-modern architecture and track lighting looks a bit dated but the open floor plan makes for a great entertaining space.
According to the Fonda's blog, she was inspired to create its mauve, womb-like entrance when she appeared in 'The Vagina Monologues'.
She wrote, To me it is a womb with a narrow birth channel and then you enter the wide open sunny loft to be born again.
Fonda's long living room is split into two living areas with the smart placement of her sofa and accent chairs. She kept the palette of her loft's main living area neutral with bleached blond hardwood floors, creamy white walls and winter white sofas and armchairs. The pale palette allows the color from the artwork and books to pop dramatically, according to shelterpop.com.
About her bedroom, she said that it was an One-of-a-kind bed. There’s a mirror under that oval canopy with wooden tassels. I’m the only person I know with a glass fireplace! The light from the fire bounces off it and reflects and is gorgeous.
It's the kind of space where I could be happy all alone but could also entertain 70 or more people comfortably...and often did, Fonda writes on her blog. Lofts are often so cold and angular and I really sought to do the opposite with mine-make it warm, curves and feminine.
