Photos: Loving Actor Malcolm McDowell’s Spanish Style Southwestern Farmhouse

English actor, Malcolm McDowell opened the doors to his spanish style Ojai farmhouse to “House Beautiful” magazine, and we couldn’t be more in love with it! As someone who is a big fan of white abodes, his boho style home is nothing less than a dream.

“This isn’t a very feminine house, but women love it,” McDowell says. She painted all the walls and ceilings the starkest white she could find: a Benjamin Moore primer, Super Spec Flat. Pillows on the living room sofa are by Laurel Adams Design; papier-mâché bulldogs, Animal Art Antiques.” Spanish Style Homes – Country House Decorating – House Beautiful
