Neil Patrick Harris is definitely an A-list celebrity. The former child star is best known for his role as Barney Stinson on the long-running sitcom How I Met Your Mother, but he has also conquered films and the Broadway stage, winning a Tony Award in 2014.
As he gets ready to host the Oscars, we thought we’d take a glimpse into the setting he calls home. If you think his classic, elegant style deserves an award, we’ve got the look:
Harris’s living room has a beautiful ivory sofa with high rolled arms and back. While the lines are traditional, the color palette offers a sophisticated casual feel. Our Riviera Sofa from Thread & Feather provides a similar look. The timeless style is brought to a new level with linen-like upholstery. We love the deep purple velvet and black and white houndstooth toss pillows, but you can select from hundreds of options if you want to customize your look.
Flanking Harris’s fireplace is a pair of wingback chairs. The lines of the chairs have a modern flair with exaggerated sides and ivory color. Upholstered in 100% genuine leather, our Spencer Accent Chairs fit the bill. Sleek and striking, its modern shape offers a subtle sense of drama to the room.
Harris’s living room includes a pair of end tables that provide a convenient surface near the wingback chairs. We think the sleek lines of our Avalon Chairside Table work well with the tone set by the Spencer Chairs. Featuring a wood frame and glass top, the saber legs include the interesting detail of arched satin nickel stretchers.
Behind the sofa, Harris has a beautiful sofa table with curved lines and a striking ebony color. Our Harper Sofa Table offers a similar silhouette, with curved legs that arch upward. The metal feet provide a nice contrast to the ebonized black cherry finish, for a touch of contemporary to this transitional room. We think the matching Cocktail Table would be a great addition, as well.
Finally, Harris has a painting of beautiful tree above his fireplace. While you could certainly find a suitable canvas, we think the dramatic silhouette of our Metal Tree would be a great. Its patina green and golden leaves make a bold and beautiful statement in the room, providing a sense of warmth to Harris’s winning style.
