Gerard Butler is finally home

It took Gerard Butler four years before he finally spent the night - in his own home.

The actor and heartthrob said he knew his 3,300-square-foot, two-story loft in New York’s Chelsea district was going to need a lot of work.

“I wanted something elegant and gorgeous and at the same time rather masculine and raw,” Butler said. “I guess I would describe the apartment as bohemian old-world rustic chateau with a taste of baroque.”

Butler will grace Architectural Digest’s May cover. The magazine will feature photos of his pad, which is still not yet complete, as well as his decorating inspirations.

Film designer Elvis Restaino, who helped bring Butler’s complex vision to life, said “We re-created things that came into Gerry's life - from his travels in Europe or even from an old coffee shop in New York.”

Butler’s apartment - furnished with 13-foot-tall mahogany doors, crystal chandeliers and limestone lions - is a place “to retreat and spend time on my own,” he said.

“New York is such a frenetic, crazy city, so I love to use the place for just some peace and quiet.”

    I really don't get all the gay remarks...does anybody read the gossip rags? According to all the media he's forever bedding a bevy of beauties of the female gender! As a fan foe a very long time I can tell you the man is not gay! Not that I care anyway ...even if he was he is not only an incredible actor but a very kind and generous human being..it has taken him over 10 years to get where he is today so in my book he's earned the right to buy what he wants, when he wants, and what he likes is his business...If you don't know anything about interior design than you will not appreciate the whole concept of his flat! I think it is warm and cozy and most of all welcoming! To each his own...stop the hate! This man would give you the shirt off his back. You have no idea what a true giver he is!

    What's up with showing off your materialistic possessions? I can't stand his 'in your face' look @ what I have, while people are suffering, all over the world. These self-absorbed celebrities are in need of a reality check. & posters, don't waste your time quoting dollar amounts of his charitable donations. I don't care. If he can show off like this, he could obviously do more. Yeah, it's his money & he can spend it his way, but there is a such thing as respect-& that's a lot more important than his gaudy taste.

    Personally, I have thoroughly enjoyed every movie I have seen Mr. Butler in. All movies show his extensive acting ability along with his wondering singing voice. As for all the "gay" comments/innuendos, whether he is or not, is none of anyone's business. I watch his movies for his talent (gorgeous face included), not what he does in his "personal, private" life.

    Too many of you need to get a life and find more important issues to worry about.

    For those of you who can't get enough of Scotland's finest, check out Gerard in "Timeline", based on the Michael Crichton novel. Critics agreed he was definitely the best thing about an otherwise awful movie. Just try to take your eyes off him. The "hottest" phantom I've ever seen as well. Don't know of "Herself" is listening, but for any of you familiar with the Diana Gabaldon "Outlander" series of novels, otherwise known as the "Jamie and Claire Saga", he's got my vote to star as Jamie.

    Please tell me this was featured in Architectural Digest in the early Nineties!
    This is already so horribly outdated & trite I cannot find words to express how awful it is. With such a great raw space & what I would assume would be a rather liberal budget, this could have been an amazing space.
    What he got, however, is more of a Neiman Marcus catalog shot from 1992.

    I think its hilarious when people say things like "not really my style" or "not what I would've have done".. Who cares what other people like or dislike, all that matters is what he likes.

    This looks like a mix of Spanish wood and chandeliers ala Pipas off Union Square, Greek columns -not the austere type- and rustic German kitchen area. And the hats behind the door must be a retro/Italian touch and the library English. I'd call it neo-baroque.

    this looks like a stage in a theater or something too many freaking chairs and lamps just hanging out by themselves. also reminds me of a floor from crate and barrel or something a woman would peice together cause she is trying to sell all of it. def doesnt look like a guy lives there. cool lighting though and photo. and yeah its way better than anything I'll ever have. thanks for letting us comment CNN.

    Eclectric and artsy, romantic and old world...LOVE it! But, heard he is never HERE. He travels all the time and is in LA most of the time. And says he actually prefers his home Scotland. Bet this place is empty most of the time and he is here only a couple months added up over the entire year. What a waste to have a place that gorgeous and rarely there. Heck, give me the key, I'll stay there and take care of the place and keep it clean and safe. Much better than my tiny one bedroom with no real kitchen and no view. These celebs spoil themselves and I don't think they even appreciate it.

    If you were given an Awesome place like his, you would take it right? If this place was yours you would decorate it however you please, right? Well, that is exactly how Gerard pleases himself not you or other readers who "hate" to hate someone with more money and fame. Trust me this place was not given to him for free so with money and decorators can make any place comfy. You are all idiots! He seems like an awesome human being! He worked hard for it and it's worth it!

    All those who claim it's not for you or it's ugly.. well that's why you don't live there. It's his taste and what he likes. I'm sure you homes aren't conducive to my liking either but there is no reason to be rude about it.

    Using items that look lived in and roughed up make him feel comfortable and that's a style he chooses to live in.

    I don't think that starving children in Harlem really have anything to do with his decorating his home. Many "famous" folks do a lot of donating of their money behind the scenes. It just makes you sound extremely jealous or bitter.

    His home is lovely. It may not be mine or your specific style, but it is beautiful nonetheless. How much time or money he spent on it is really none of our concern to be honest.

    I think he is an extremely attractive man...and now a days a good looking man WITH a job? Really? I can't think of anything better!

    Howdy ya'll...

    Why does anybody need such a large space? I'm more content in a 1,000 square feet or less. I may not be too sociable, but I like to spend my time at home reading a book. My place may not be fancy but as long as it makes you comfortable and happy, great.

    If you are looking for peace and quietness, you can find that out in the country. I live away from a city...very rural part of Texas. Plus, you get one of the nicest, friendliest, church go-ers, and down-to-earth type of people. You may get some slow drivers but life out here is in no rush.

    Well, the ugly truth out of me is that Gerald Butler is very cute and charming. I'd go on a date with him...
