What is that feeling we have when we get to peer into the celebrity homes. Right now, while many of us have more free time than we have had since college breaks, there is some pleasure that comes with getting a sneak peek into their homes. I read one place that referenced it is almost a form of voyeurism (Cosmopolitan) I agree, I think it is.
But is there part of us that wants to see if we can recreate a piece of that life style. Or that we too feel and act like they do, share their views, dress in similar styles, so HOW DO THEY LIVE and can I or do I want to incorporate pieces of it in my space? The rooms have run the gamut of styles, modern, eclectic, classic, white washed beached themed, city classic to Scandinavian. I would assume they all had designers to assist them with their room designs.
So I feel the answer is yes, you can live like famous people. Let me give you a few examples of how you can mimic their style.
This talk show host is a very fun, creative and successful individual. His spaces have been equally fun and creative. You can get this spontaneous look by playing with materials and colors. And not the most current color palette you will find in 90% of popular home décor shops right now. But that doesn’t make them anything less attractive. They are simply another interesting combination of colors and patterns. There is an element of outdoorsmen-ship(is that a word)to the space too. Mix your outdoor wood elements. Furnishings mixed with color and unusual artistic accessories. In this case, darker elements ground the space and then the whimsy of multiple colors, adds the interest. I would first recommend you walk into a rug store and find a rug you like, just because you like it, not because it goes with what you have or your favorite colors. Then work from there. Wood finishes don’t have to match, although they don’t often match anywhere any longer but definitely not in this look. An almost child-like love of patterns, art history and comfort are mixed together. Finding an unusual item that you love, in this case the birch inspired wallcovering, doesn’t immediately scream Family Room but it is the one item I have seen discussed online and in my personal conversations, don’t be afraid to do something different.
You may be sensing a theme here but I do like to get my news reports so I did see some morning and evening national news shows the past few months. This talk show host as been a bubbly addition to her nertwork’s line up. We all watched her grow up on television and her classic style is a beautiful reflection of her up bringing and her bubbly personality.
You can achieve a similar look by taking a few classic elements and adding a contrasting colored accents in some fun and inviting pieces. In this particular reincarnated living room, the rug, vases, some artwork and cushions are traditional and mostly tied in with a navy blue color scheme. The fun elements come with the blush colored accent pieces with the piece de resistance being the pattern wallcovering that almost dances off the paper. Very reminiscent of the original wallpaper.
I had to through in this earth vibing mood board created from this Grammy Nominated Singer’s living space. Very earthy, organic, and infused with tribal inspiration. If you look at the furniture pieces by themselves, they could be used in a few different style rooms but when you add in a more hand made rug or rattan pieces, a whole new feel takes over the space. I find it very comfortable and organic.
I have not listed the names of the celebrities, one because I am not sure I can but also because it makes you think more about your style than mimicking anyone. Inspiration is one thing but always try to put some personal touches into your space, either with the help of a good designer that listens and hears your needs and wants or by doing the work yourself. If you find you need assistance, please give Foxbury Design a call to help. We’ll get right on that for you, just in case you need to go Live on national television too.
