Us Weekly has reported that model Gisele Bündchen will be taking the lead on interior design for the extravagant Brookline estate she is building with hubby and New England Patriots QB Tom Brady. An unnamed "insider source" tells the gossip magazine that Bündchen knows how each room will look in the 14,000 square foot mansion (including a yoga studio and spa, wine storage room, and library), chatting with the architect over FaceTime to share ideas. Curbed Boston reminds the unlike the couple's L.A. estate, there is no moat planned for Brookline—just future cookouts with neighbor and Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Construction has begun on the 5.2 acre property, as evidenced by TMZ photos earlier this month.
