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 love action movies and my idol is none other than Gerard Butler. this guy really rocks `~"
Good actor. Great living space – love all the rustic wood. Personally don't like the furniture. It's not flowing. 2nd picture looks like a shot of a furniture show room
both Gerard Butler and Daniel Craig are my idols, they are great actors with strong personality,.;
Gerard Butler is definitely a macho guy that needs macho roles ,""
i think that gerard butler is one hell of a macho actor.~'
Gerard Butler is the favorite actor of my sister because he got this macho factor.*~`
i love the acting skills of Gerard Butler. he is definitely a great action star.:.`
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!
im gay. yeah. i think it does look gay. i think that's cute.
Gerard actually invited me up to his loft to dine....
Y'all who comment on the place 'looking gay' – makes one wonder.... how do YOU know what a 'gay' place looks like?
I think it's beautiful – and even if I didn't – it ain't my place – it's GButler's and you go guy! Luv ya! I'd say I'm sorry I live so far away on the left coast, but shoot – I'd never meet you anyway... ; )
Looks like the Munster's home!
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.
It looks perfect.
It is his home and if it works for him that is all that really matters... right? I can't believe there are so many critics on this, it is his style.
I say relax and enjoy.
It looks a little too themed... like the Disney Jungle Cruise exploded in his house.
Hey thanks for all the comments. I'm so grateful for all of my fans. You all are welcome to my place any time. Cheers!
Great taste Gerry! Love the home, May all your fantasy's come true there!
I think you are a great actor and have enjoyed all your work! Thanks for the awsome entertainment!
Shut up hobo bag. He's not gay!
Typical gay bachelor pad. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Mr. B why don't you come over to my place and check out the surroundings. john: shut the eff up
Shut up ho
Mr. B you one fly sugardaddy
Good Taste, well done you gorgeous hunk of male
Okay, so it ain't Sparta. Who cares? If you've got the money,
enjoy. Mr. B apparently has the money. And, from what I've
seen, he's also got good taste.
Hey girls, I'm just like him. Except not rich and maybe not as good looking.
His best work was Atilla. Hey Girard if you read this.....way to go man.
sounds/looks kind of Gay?
I am so glad he has style!! Call me babe!
Looks like a display room from Rooms 2 Go. I like an open floor plan but a wall here and there wouldn't hurt.
This looks like a huge waste of money...& I don't care how much he has now, there will come a day when his accountant has run off with all of his money, or he goes broke from bad investments, or some addiction has bled him dry. Then, he'll lose this place because of back taxes. Hollywood celebrities are all the same...live to impress RIGHT NOW.
Looks a little like a hotel lobby. Too many chair groupings. I guess if you're having a bunch of guests it's a nice area to party!
Isn't Chelsea a gay neiborhood?
Beautiful. I'm gonna be in Ny in Nov. Do you need an apt. sitter?
And I will gladly share a bedroom with your daughter. I am in NC :)
This is so gaudy – why on earth has it taken 3 years to find all that mismatched junk and throw it in together, with a designer no less. Gerard, please do not recomment this dude to anybody. Hire somebody else and do a complete makeover.
Let me get this straight, Mary from North Carolina, you're offering your 30-yr-old daughter to live with a man, actor to be more specific? Who let you have children?
Very beautiful place just like him!!! Would love to roll around that big bed with him!!!
I like the skating rink in the middle. This mixture of old things with brand new glitzy things is always stunning. I want his interior decorator's number – and his.
It looks like a furniture store, very impersonal. A nice display of his new wealth, though.
The loft looks really terrific. Just my kind of place. I and my four cats would be very happy there. Maybe the next time I am able to spend a long weekend in NY, I may get a chance to walk past him and be able to just say "hello and thank you".
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.
Where's the television? How is he supposed to watch his fantastic movies without a television? Oh, wait, maybe that's why he doesn't appear to have one. His movies aren't fantastic (see The Ugly Truth for evidence).
Ok...go ahead and hang the Mona Lisa, or part of the Cistine chapel, get RENOIR to do a mural–AIN'T NOTHIN' AS GORGEOUS or decorates the place ANY BETTER THAN THAT HUNK GERARD BUTLER. Without a DOUBT, the hottest man that ever drew a breath.
actors are overpaid duds. we pay too much to see bad movies like bounty hunter because we gotta pay bad actors like this and whats her name too much. He'll lose it in a divorce.
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.
Looks like a department store. Anything for sale?
Gerry is a man's man and a ladies man. His new home reflects so many of the things we love about him...warm, masculine, and charming with a sense of humour. Real.
Many blessings to you and yours with your New York residence. Looking forward to seeing more of your work! Love and best wishes from the Midwest.
I would look SO good in this apartment with you Gerard!! :)
It looks beautiful. I am free to move in any day.
WISH THERE WERE MORE MEN LIKE HIM IN THE WORLD!!!!! He's a real winner. Not many around like him unfortunately!
WISH THERE WERE MORE MEN LIKE HIM IN THE WORLD!!!!! He's a real winner. Not many around like him unfortuately!
Elegant yet rustic cozy....well done Gerard's designer! If I were 20 years younger (sigh).... He makes me smile......an amazing man he is. I've even watched Nim's Island and PS I love you mutiple times. Unheard of for me!
Absolutely beautiful. What's missing? The rolling, ragged hills and picturesque ruins of Scotland as a view out your window. Fortunately you can return home to see those things. One day I'll see the homeland of my family Ross and hear that wonderfully spoken accent I enjoy so much in your movies and interviews. Cheers!
Can I do you on one of those sofas?
People are just ridiculous!! No one cares what your tastes are!! This is his home and it does not matter what you think. What matters is that HE feels comfortable there!!
I don't understand why so many people are coming down on him for about the space. Many of you live in a closet because you can't afford an apartment like that.!! Stop you're whining and move on! Let the man be!!
NYC' Chelsea neighborhood. The heart of gay Manhattan. Hmmm, if those walls could talk!
I love the random eye glasses and open book correctly situated on the bed...
*ssh*l*s are like elbows.... everyone has one.
I like it.
Absolutely gorgeous, just like him!
wouldn't mind seeing gerry roaming around the house naked! haha!
My 31 year old boyfriend says he'd gladly share his space with him, but I'm not sure I'm really wanting that to happen........
It's beautiful. The exposed beams are fabulous! Alan, what do you have against Morans? Ohhhh, you meant morons, perhaps? Ah, well then...
He was cool til he started making like 26 chickflicks a week
I'm picturing myself.....right there propped up on those blue pillows.
That is NOT SPARTA!!!
It looks like a furniture store.
honestly, not impressed. natural wood is sooo overrated.
This is a reason that they keep raising movie ticket prices. Gotta pay for the expensive tastes of pampered movie stars.
Hey Mary, I'd like to take your daughter into my loft and show her some man meat.
When is Ricky Martin moving in?
I can't believe you think the loft is "tropical" just because there is 1 palm tree in there. I have to agree with 'thereluctantdad' too... Money can't buy taste.
Gerard Butler proves once again why he is, the man. Go Gerard!
Right on Asere, well said.
That out of the way, Gerald Butler is a no talent as* clown.
Looks like some of the interiors here in Arizona but this looks more like the loby in a resort than a home with all the open space and rooms without walls.
I totally agree with 'thereluctantdad'.
Ladies, if you want a real man instead of being star chaser (like Rolling Stones song "Star Star"). I'm available down here in Tampa, FL. I'm a good looking SWM, fit, employed, educated, have a car, and own my own home.
Do You need a Butler/Servant?
Can't believe the amount of haters out there! Whether it's your style or not, there is no way on God's green earth that one could say that his loft looks horrendous! All you haters get a grip! I know it sucks to have to go to your 9 to 5(that's if you're one of the lucky ones) everyday, but fight the urge to be mean spirited, envious and hateful.
Well, such a nice, cozy home Mr. Butler. Wouldn't you want to spend it with someone who watched your career blossum since Phantom of the Opera. I love you!!!
I know this comes off as jealous, but the truth is, it is. I am a Lieutenant on a fire department making about $42,000 a year. I have over 15 years of service and in 2006 was foreclosed on.
Enjoy your home that you "finally" got to spend a night in.
John – Sorry you got foreclosed on. Unfortunately society doesn't reward according to value. But we appreciate all that you and the fire department do for us. True heroes in my book!
PS: we girls LOVE firemen. <3
HELLO! He is from Europe and this is very old world culture. I think it is classic and elegant but then, so is he.
i must have clicked on the wrong site.i thought cnn was a news network.not some hollywood gossip crap,lifestyles of the rich and famous and such.my bad!
Looks warm, inviting....when can my cats and I move in ??
what a waste. how many millions spent? on a house he'll barely live in? children sleep hungry and dying around the world because so much wealth is held up in useless media such as this.
I like the scripts strewn across the bed, as if they were trying to hint that he actually reads them before he makes a movie.
This guy obvioiusly loves the c*ck!
it's all very attractive but it does remind me of a hotel lobby
I wouldn't live there if you paid me.
I agree with the others.... it doesn't matter what you think, It's called an "opinion" for a reason. If we all liked the same stuff think how boring this world would be. Haters!!! I think it's awesome, and if you got the money make it how you like it.
You have come a long way, from living in Paisley to a NYC loft I say congratulations to you, from a fellow Scot who has lived in California for 28 years
he is soooo freakin handsome!!!!! his accent just makes me drool i would totally not mind spending the night in this fabulous place, cuddling in his arms..call me honey anytime anywhere ill be there..
P.S. I LOVE YOU..haha
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.
Everyone is a critic.
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.
It has the look of a hotel lobby.
Your loft is absolutely spectacular. It would be a place where anyone could live comfortably. I love it.
hmmmmmm, Chelsea. Hmmmmmmm.
Prefer my pad, sorry not my taste big man.
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.
I like his movies but not his taste!
Way too open and it just looks like a gay version of the Hemingway collection.
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!
Nice pad, would be a nice place to smoke some bongloads and watch the view.
Liberace meets Pottery Barn....can't say I hate it. He is his own cup of tea.
What ever happened to manners??
Home is where we get to be who we are!! Sleep good! See you soon!
Sandra Bullock and Gerard would make a cute couple, don't you think?
Its amazing. Great colors and a very modern yet coastal feeling. I love the wood. Good taste. Very good taste.
Geez i guess some guys DO get dealt all the Aces, good for him...
This is SPARTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
3 years to do that????? u must be kidding...this is so plain, boring and un-inspirational....it looks like a photo set for Pottery Barn!!!
He could have done much more with the property. As it is now, it looks like the showroom floor of a furniture store.
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!
Your loft is beautiful! Make sure you have a comfortable couch for your girlfriend and her dogs. I also like that you have live plants. Very masculine look with a hint of feminity. Enjoy.
Two words – WHO CARES???? He is a noboby that people have paid big bucks to for no reason. Will he be remembered when it is all said and done, probably not!
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...
The kitchen is just beautiful – check out this link: http://www.architecturaldigest.com/homes/features/2010/05/gerard_butler_slideshow#slide=3
I love his new home!
i absolutely LOVE his place and him. =)
I've heard that Gerard Butler puts a notch on his baroque bedpost for every girl he brings home or man he kills, and there are no less than a dozen notches on there...
You people do get that you are not talking to the guy when you say: "gerard – love the new place"!
Get a freaking life.
ha ha ha ha ha ha.....all of you guys and girls are idiots....GROW UP! who cares what his house is like or what his movies are like. Time to see what kind of a human being he truely is....why do you have to like a person from what kind of movie they make, they are just persuing a personality of the character; not of themselves.
What a bizarre way to decorate an apartment. It looks like an Anthropologie showroom.
Gerard..was the man....in 300....
nice digs, but heck, I would share a hovel with him! HOT HOT HOT!
Looks like his pad is every Arabic looking. Love the style! :)
doesn't he realize there are starving children in harlem? how could he spend this much money on materialistic junk? it will all burn in the firey pits of hades and he too.
Very tasteful – serene, warm and calming – Hot chocolate comes to mind. Excellent choice of textures and colors. Keep up the good work!
This is Sparta?
Gerald, you are a muppet. Only a moran would wait so long to get a place ready, learn some time management skills man. You define the phrase "more money than sense".
Says the guy who cannot spell "moron"
No offense to anyone, but the IKEA catalog photos look better than this place.
I am sure there are plenty of people living IN North Carolina that have no clue where it is either....
(That means you are not smart.)
sooo...is he dating jennifer aniston?? anyone see "the bounty hunter"??
damn! you stole my idea.
Don't like it? That's why they make cars in so many diffent colors
Gorgeous Wide open spaces, great woodwork and rustic furniture. Gerard has very good taste.
Gerard, LOVE the new place! One detail to touch it up nicely....it needs two spaniels and a cat. Good luck with it.
I'm in North Carolina. Whats that daughter's phone number? (i'm a good looking southern boy).
A gorgeous place for a gorgeous guy. I hope he gets some time to enjoy it.
That pad is a "300"!
that took 6,240 hours to complete, for a mere 3,000 sq feet? that's 2.08 hours for 1 man/per sq foot. i assume there were at least 5-10 men.women working there at any given day. my,my, my, with all those hours, they could have done better! lol....
it's seem pretty neat..compared to my little apartment, i always dream what it would be like to live in a place that i can actually be at peace.
The Ugly Truth was, without a doubt, the worst movie I've ever seen. I will never like Gerard Butler for that movie alone
Fantastic pad Gerard, will you marry me ;-)
Pretty cool place, and I'm sure he knows where North Carolina is. Can people stop acting like they think no one's heard of their state?
you people are shallow idiots
It just goes to show that money can't buy taste. That is the UGLIEST thing I've ever seen.
I thought working on a movie set is hard enough but living in one? I don't know...
It is like a Tropical Island. It is like you can walk out of the Apartment to a sunny beautiful beach. Having a " place" where you can be at peace is so necessary !
Nice to see someone cool (and hot) move into the neighborhood.
Just an FYI, Gerard is featured in the MAY edition of AD, not April. The May edition of the magazine is supposed to drop on April 6th.
Damn. That's hot, just like him. He seems like a super freak so this place suits him just fine.
It looks nice enough although not really what I would do. It looks like there is a lot of "old" beat up stuff. Not sure if would be a calm place to be. Guess the designers where going for the lived in look.
It is put together well, but not my taste. I've counted conversation pits. That is a bit tacky!
really nice interior...loved it.
IT IS BEAUTIFUL. CONGRADULATIONS. IT LOOKS LIKE YOU.
WHAT FLOOR IS IT ON ? I CAN NOT STAND BEING IN A VERY TALL BUILDING. GOD BLESS.
i absoultely love him.. & that my friends, is the ugly truth!
NICE!!! I my 30 year old daughter would gladly share it with him. She's a good-looking, southern gal from North Carolina. But he probably doesn't even know where NC is.
