Simon Cowell’s claim to fame is his knack for finding extreme talent and the next break-out star. Cowell is best known as the outspoken (sometimes snarky) judge of American Idol and America’s Got Talent. Cowell created the X-Factor and formed the multinational vocal quartet known to the world as Il Divo. Most recently Cowell co-created the boy-band One Direction.
Not only does Cowell have impeccable taste in finding new talent, he has a flair for designing a lavish home. “Cowell was involved in every aspect of designing his Beverly Hills home.” The decor is bold, mimicking Cowell’s personality, with its black and white scheme and shades of gray to accent. The look is classic, cool and sedate. Cowell says, “This is where I feels at home and at peace.”
