I have to admit I’m often skeptical when I hear others talk about how “down to earth” certain celebrities are, but y’all: Brooklyn Decker is the real deal, and we spent an incredibly fun morning at her rural abode in west Austin chatting about her super streamlined getting-ready routine, life as a new mom, and our shared fascination with disaster prepping (don’t ask.) Scroll through to find out the actress’ must-have products and get a peek at the insanely gorgeous home that she shares with husband Andy Roddick and their adorable 1-year-old, Hank. And before you ask for the name of her interior designer, I should mention that Decker designed it herself — from the jaw-dropping marble in the kitchen to the eclectic selection of art. With her warm smile and easygoing attitude, you could almost forget how talented she is… but not quite.
