Jordana Brewster’s spacious Los Angeles home is filled with irreplaceable family heirlooms — but that doesn’t mean her two children can’t run around and play.

When the Lethal Weapon star, 38, and her husband, producer Andrew Form, first decided to move to their 8,000-square-foot home in Brentwood’s Mandeville Canyon, she turned to her longtime interior design collaborator, and childhood pal Chiara de Rege for help. But her parents also played a big role in the home’s decor, offering to let Brewster take whatever she wanted from their New York City apartment.

“My dad said, ‘Jordana, go into the apartment with Chiara, pick everything you want, and we’ll give it to you.’ It was like being in a candy shop. I think we took three quarters of everything,” she told archdigest.com.

The many family heirlooms present in the one-story abode, which hadn’t been updated since the 1940s, include multiple rugs, a caned settee, and a bust of the actress’s grandfather.

Opening up about her design aesthetic, the Fast and the Furious star told archdigest.com that it was important her house “be grand enough to hold furniture with a lot of integrity” without being too precious.

The mother of two — she shares sons Rowan, 2, and Julian, 5, with her Form — went on to explain how important it was to her that the family home also “be comfy enough so the kids are snuggled up with a book whenever they want to be.”

While she knows not all of her decor choices will be forever, Brewster plans on keeping all of the family heirlooms, and hopefully passing them on to her children, and her children’s children one day.

“They’re staying forever—I want my boys to appreciate them, because I didn’t at all growing up,” she added. “There’s something really gratifying about being able to continue that tradition now.”

And even though their home is filled with plenty of her own memories, Brewster’s husband is just as thrilled with the abode as she is.

“There are days Andrew walks in and says, ‘I can’t believe I live in this house!’ ” she remarked. “It means so much to have an appreciation for and a love of where you love.”
