The story of Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer’s Venice home is one of ultimate artistic license. With their selections of architect, interior designer, and landscape designer over the course of the seven-year project, the couple proved their aptitude for directing a team of collaborators with strong individual vision. “It’s always exciting to surround yourself with people whose taste you absolutely love, who you really trust creatively, then not micro-manage but actually let them come up with their creations and ideas, so you’re not getting a watered-down version,” Paquin says. Their interior designer, Arabella McIntosh of Palm Beach Black, reaped the benefits of this philosophy when decorating the 7,100-square-foot home. “They let me lean into ideas and pushed me to new territories,” she says.
