Mother’s Day Style: Kris Kardashian

Celebrity moms have style. As the matriarch of the Kardashians, Kris Kardashian is known for being outspoken and bold. Her personality is reflected in her interior style, as well, with lots of sharp contrast, statement pieces and a striking (and minimalistic) color palette. Her living room expresses who she is with a powerful display.

If you like Kris Kardashian’s style, here are three ways to bring it home.

Embrace Black and White

Black and white is the most striking combination for creating contrast, and it’s a classic look, as well. Consider black furniture for your main pieces, then lighten up the room with white details. Or do the reverse, using a white sofa and a dark rug to anchor it. Gray paint and accents marry and soften the palette.

Carefully Select Furniture

Kris Kardashian chose modern pieces that function like usable art. An asymmetric accent chair feels Art Deco, while sleek details keep things sophisticated.

Go for Bold Prints

An oversized rug in a striking graphic print makes a big statement in the room. In fact, it’s the only pattern in the space. Choose a bold piece that becomes the focal point in your room.

Mother’s Day Style: Joanna Gaines

Joanna Gaines is one of the most stylish TV moms around. Not only did she make farmhouse style the hottest look of the past few years; she put the focus of home design on telling the family’s story. Her own home reflects those same values, with an eclectic mix of personal items, old and new, that creates an inviting space for family and friends.

If you love Joanna Gaines’ style, here are three of her signature items:

 

Shiplap

Admit it. None of us knew what shiplap was before Fixer Upper. Now we all want the beautiful reclaimed wood in our homes. From walls to furniture, every room can use a little shiplap.

 

Vintage Maps

There’s something nostalgic and beautiful about framing and hanging vintage maps. Whether it’s from your city, your travels or your dreams, framed vintage maps add a sense of adventure to your room.

 

Pendant Lights

Most of Joanna’s designs include large kitchen islands, and the way to create a sense of coziness is to anchor them with statement pendant lights. Not only do pendants provide task lighting; they underscore the design of the home.

Mother’s Day Style: Lisa Vanderpump

Mother’s Day is around the corner, and some of our favorite celebrity moms provide the perfect inspiration for designing your home around family. First up is Lisa Vanderpump, from BravoTV. We love her glamorous style. Her living room embraces her feminine side with elegant tufted furniture, over-the-top details like crystal chandeliers (everywhere,) and the welcoming feeling of softness and curves.

If you like Lisa’s look, too, here are three ways to incorporate it in your home.

Think Pink

Blush is a hot shade this season, especially in furnishings and rugs. Choose a blush sofa or rug as the foundation of the room. Layer in other shades of pink, as well. We’re reviving the cosmetic-counter colors of the ‘80s, with everything from mauve to fuchsia.

 

Add Mirrored Furniture

Nothing’s more glamorous in a room than a mirrored table or chest. Use one behind a sofa, in your foyer, or for an end table or nightstand. Mirrored furniture reflect the light in your room, giving your space sparkle.

Power Up Flowers

Bring flowers—lots of them!!—into your room with floral prints and fresh bouquets. Artwork or an accent chair with a bold floral pattern adds interest to your space and makes a statement. Vases with colorful buds literally breathe life into the room. You can never have too many blooms.

We’ve Got the Look: Jon Bon Jovi’s Living Room

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi recently sold his 4,000-square-foot duplex in Manhattan’s West Village for a cool $15 million, reports The Wall Street Journal. The spacious home featured high ceilings, lots of windows and gorgeous hardwood floors. We love the elegant living room that opens to a 1,500-square-foot landscaped garden, overlooking the Hudson River. While you may have missed out on this stunning residence, you can get the singer’s classic style:

Anchoring the living room is a beautiful oversized ivory sectional with curved lines and silk toss pillows. Our Illusions Three-Piece Sectional offers a similar feeling of luxury, with its elegant tufting and sweeping silhouette. Add some beautiful toss pillows in teal and gray to mimic Bon Jovi’s room, and you’ll get the same look.

An oval coffee table keeps the curves going in our inspiration room, and our Platform Oval Cocktail Table is a great match. Its metal base and wooden top brings texture into the rom, and the soft finishes continue the room’s subtle style.

A pair of elegant side chairs provides more seating in the room, and the wooden trim adds another rich detail. Our Como Accent Chairs would be a great choice. Upholstered in a soft taupe, the subtle pattern adds an element of interest, while the rich wooden frame brings contrast.

Bon Jovi’s living room features a desk instead of a side table between the chairs, which provides a convenient place to do work or catch up on reading. The glass top of our Percy Grey Desk will keep the open feeling in your room, while the rich floating drawers offer just the right amount of storage.

Finally, Bon Jovi’s living room features a unique lighting fixture with soft white shades that act like hanging artwork. Our Sophie White Pendant brings in a similar element of style with its unique faceted ceramic shade.

We’ve Got the Look: Jessica Alba’s Office

Jessica Alba Office

Jessica Alba is not only beautiful; she’s an A-list Hollywood star and a trendsetter with a chic style that’s often photographed for magazines. She’s also a successful entrepreneur; her business, The Honest Company, offers eco-friendly products for babies and parents. Elle Décor magazine recently visited its headquarters, which Alba designed to feel bright and fresh.

“I wanted to give my team many different spaces to work from so they didn’t feel like they were just at their desks all day,” Alba told Elle Décor. “I always have my best ideas when I’m at home—there’s less pressure. I want to recreate that environment for people and inspire them to thrive here.”

If Alba’s work style inspires you to do the same in your home office or office workspace, we’ve got the look:

Alba Ottoman

Identical to the ones found in Alba’s office, our cotton braided Red Pouf Ottoman has so many uses. Put one under your desk to elevate your feet. Use another near an oversized chair or settee to unwind or work on your laptop. And scatter more around the room for extra seating during an impromptu meeting. We love it in red, but it comes in earth, curry, grass, light blue, navy, orange, kiwi and orchid, too.

 

Alba’s office has a slim settee that provides comfortable seating and the feeling of home. Our Kari Ivory Settee is a great choice, offering a tailored style that fits with the professional feel of a workplace. Update the look with new pillows that match the ottoman or add a variety of colors for a sumptuous feel.

Alba Table

Instead of a traditional end table, Alba uses a metal cube with her settee, bringing more texture and depth to the workspace. We think our Argos Table is a great addition, with its patina finish and riveted trim. The handles make it easy to move wherever a surface is needed.

 

Finally, bring in a graphic rug to your office that adds interest to the floor. This horizontal stripe pattern in nautical blue is very on-trend, and will brighten up your workspace with its bold feel.
