The Atomic Blonde producer is known for her timeless beauty – so it’s no surprise that her home is classically elegant. Charlize Theron, famed actress in films like Mad Max and The Italian Job offered a glimpse into her California home. Design experts are obsessed with the home decor ideas she’s chosen.
