Joey and Barrett opened the doors of their 1939 French Normandy Revival house to 'Architectural Digest'
Joey McIntyre and his wife Barrett McIntyre aren't afraid to embrace a sense of whimsy in the décor of their Los Angeles home.
The New Kids on the Block member and Barrett have been married since 2003, and they share three children: sons Griffin Thomas, 15, and Rhys Edward, 13, and daughter Kira Katherine, 12. In 2020, they relocated from a New York City apartment to a 1939 French Normandy Revival house in L.A.'s Hancock neighborhood.
"We’re East Coast people. We love older houses and we love this neighborhood,” Barrett told Architectural Digest when she and her husband recently welcomed the outlet into their home for a tour.
The couple also love to see their joyful spirit represented in the style of their home. That's why designers Staver Gray and Christie Ward of Ward + Gray incorporated so many eclectic, storybook style elements in the family's home.
From a piece of artwork featuring the word "happy" spelled out in electrical wires hanging over their breakfast nook to a pool table with pink felt that sits in front of the window in their family room, Joey and Barrett's home is bright and full of unexpected, but personal touches.
One of the most interesting spaces belongs to Joey. The singer and actor's office turned music room features pine wood walls with shelves packed to the brim with books, speakers and memorabilia.
"We wanted to keep it a wild space where he can be his true self," Ward said. "We didn’t want to overly style it."
While Joey's room has a lived-in, rustic vibe, the rest of the home is full of color, patterns and beloved family heirlooms like the "Stay the Same" singer's vintage grand piano, which sits in the family room. For Joey, the home has represented a space for him and his family to grow.
"We totally pinch ourselves every day,” Joey said. “I’ve felt a lot of growth here in lots of ways — and we’re thrilled.”
Another space where the couple's whimsical sensibilities can be felt is in their solarium. The room, which is already full of natural light, is brightened even more by white walls and sage green accents. The color choice gives the room a vintage feel, while still allowing it to be a welcoming space for the family to spend time together.
