Around the time that Michael Emerson and Carrie Preston celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in 2008, they landed at the perfect LA home that is as stylishly offbeat as their Emmy-winning TV performances.

“What appears to be a Mexican-Moroccan bungalow reveals itself to be a gracious desert home as you move through it toward the seclusion of the backyard,” Michael shares with ‘Closer.’ “Umm, yeah, what Michael said,” Carrie adds with a laugh.

Their witty rapport is just what you’d expect from Michael, 60, who plays a quirky, brilliant crime fighting billionaire on ‘Person of Interest,’ and Carrie, 47, who plays a quirky, brilliant criminal attorney on ‘The Good Wife,’ both on CBS.
And with their busy bicoastal life, the three-bedroom home was the perfect fit. “We aren’t in LA full time, so we wanted a place we could move right into without a lot of work,” says Michael, who also shares a Manhattan apartment with Carrie and their rescue Maltipoo, Chumley.

The biggest construction work they’ve done was rebuilding the chimney. Michael’s past experience as a scenery designer and illustrator is evident in the home’s deep colors and a decor that highlights a taste for the exotic.
“I’d say we have a folk-world, eclectic style that’s full of character and artistry,” Carrie shares, and Michael agrees. “We are attracted to warm-colored things from faraway lands — handicrafts and rugs, carved or painted furniture that’s more antique than modern.”

From Closer Weekly:
Carrie Preston and Michael Emerson have long broken the Hollywood curse.
After being married for 15 years, Carrie reveals to Closer Weekly the success to their marriage—“Mutual respect.”
“He is the yin to my yang,” the 46-year-old actress tells the mag. “We complement each other. We have similar interests, but we’re very different people. When I get too crazy he teaches me to just settle, and when he’s too settled, I get him going! It’s a good balance.”
While Carrie and Michael, 59, both have busy schedules, they still make time for their romance – Carrie even says Michael is her favorite dinner date!
“We’re pretty big foodies and love to try out restaurants and then usually go the theater or see live music,” Carrie adds.
