Christina El Moussa's home is nothing like what you see on 'Flip or Flop'

It's no surprise that Christina El Moussa re-designed the interior of the entire 6,000-square-foot Spanish-style house she and her ex-husband, Tarek, purchased three years ago in the Yorba Linda neighborhood of Orange County, California.

The "Flip or Flop" star, 34, said she "wanted to change everything" upon walking into the house.

"Before, the style was a lot of beige, brown (and) travertine," she told Elle Decor in a new interview. "So I updated the entire look with more of my look, which is rustic glam."

The updated space features a color palette of gray, white and black, and there's plenty of pretty wallpaper to catch the eye.

"I like a very clean look," she said, pointing out graphic black and white decor. There are some rustic elements that might be more familiar to viewers of the show, such as the reclaimed wood beamed ceiling in the family room, but they're mixed with the shimmery and sparkly details like the chandeliers that hang throughout the home.

Upstairs, along with a library, kids' playroom and home gym, is the master bedroom which El Moussa says was inspired by one of her favorite styles, old Hollywood. A mirrored nightstand complements the chandelier hanging above her bed, which is covered in girly pillows.

"My favorite part is that I can see the whole backyard from my bed," she said, pointing to the oasis down below.

"There's actually everything you can think of. A swim up grotto, waterslide … the kids love jumping off the rocks."

An outdoor kitchen provides the perfect spot to host guests or just enjoy a simple meal with the kids on any given night. "I eat dinner out here basically five nights a week," she admitted.

One of the most popular spots in the backyard has proven to be the putting green which El Moussa says is her son's favorite. It's also a place where all the little kids like to chill when they have parties, she said.

And when the weather's not cooperating, there are plenty of fun places to host friends inside on the first floor. There's a billiards room, library and even a home theater. Of course, when she really wants to get fancy, El Moussa can invite guests into her formal dining room, but she says she hardly ever does. "I never really get to use [it], so I'm able to leave the table set."
