Supermodel Cindy Crawford has defined beauty and set fashion trends around the world. She effortlessly translates her wisdom to the art of home design with the Cindy Crawford Home Collection. When she’s away from the camera, however, her casual style home is timeless and chic. Cindy was asked to describe her style, and she said it’s not too trendy.
“I think my style is more what I’m not, and I think the furniture line really reflects that,” she said. “There’s an awareness of what is on trend, but I would not go with a trend if I didn’t feel like it would flatter me. And I feel like with the furniture it’s the same thing.”

Tommy Hilfiger is known for his preppy, all-American style, but the $50 million penthouse apartment he shares with his wife, Dee Dee, in Manhattan spans a wide range of influences and décor. Filled with personal collections and meaningful accents, you could spend hours looking around the home, taking in the couple’s style. We love the Hilfiger bedroom, which Dee Dee calls airy and light, cozy and elegant. If you like it, too, we’ve got the look.
The bedroom in the Hilfiger home features a dramatic bed with sweeping curves and striking details. Our Cordova Mineral King Bed also has a stylish headboard and footboard, with nailhead trim that outlines the dramatic shape. Complete the look with luxurious bedding and lots of accent pillows.
The Hilfigers have a pair of tufted slipper chairs on either side of the bed, offering a place for the couple to sit as they dress. Our Deidra Accent Chairs would be a wonderful addition to a master suite. Add one in a corner or two if you have space. The light color is classic, and the nailhead trim complements the detail on the bed.
Mirrored nightstands add a reflective quality to the Hilfiger bedroom, as well as a touch of glamour and sparkle. Our Claudia Mirrored Nightstand would be a great choice, offering the same look as well as classic ring hardware.
The crowning touch on the Hilfiger bedroom is a beautiful traditional chandelier that hangs over the bed. Oversized and dramatic, it is the perfect piece to top off this elegant room. Our Iron Branch Chandelier offers the same effect, with its unique crystal details and candle-style lights.
What do you think of the style of the Hilfiger bedroom? Over the top or wonderfully indulgent?
We love the Netflix series The Crown. It gives us a weekly fix of royals, and some great design inspiration, as well. The Los Angeles Times interviewed the production designer Martin Childs, who shared that the production was shot over eight months on 398 sets. This explains why the series is so popular with design fans. Here are some of the insider tips on The Crown style that might help you as you design your own palace.
Viewers often inquire about where they could find an item, and recently Childs was asked where to find a light box like Tony Armstrong-Jones has in his studio. “The more mundane the request, the more I feel people are noticing the detail and that’s pretty gratifying,” he said.
From floral slipcovered sofas to draperies and large floral sprays, the set is literally in bloom. “The palace floristry team is at work constantly and we have a one-woman equivalent in the form of the wonderful Helen Byrne,” Childs said.
The interiors reflect the difference between royals and non-royals, and in season one, Childs focused on showing postwar austerity. “For Season two, it’s the dawn of the more permissive ’60s. London doesn’t suddenly go all Austin Powers and Carnaby Street. The luxury of long-form TV is that you can introduce these things subtly, by stealth, leaving some of the world as it was in order to notice what it’s becoming,” he said.

Celebrity homes can be a great source of inspiration when you’re designing a room. Not only do you get some great style tips; you get a chance to peek into a favorite actor’s life. This is Us actress Mandy Moore recently took Architectural Digest on a tour of the Mid-Century Modern home she purchased with fiancé Taylor Goldsmith. She renovated the four-bedroom Pasadena, California house designed by architect Harold Zook, and the results are incredible. The floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide amazing 360-degree views of the 1.45-acre estate, and the décor feels timeless yet fresh.
We especially love Mandy’s living room. The Mid-Century Modern furnishings complement the style of the home, and the crisp white and blue color palette is enhanced with wooden accents. If you love it, too, we’ve got the look.

Start with a Sofa
A sleek white sofa with a Mid-Century design sets the tone in Mandy’s room. While not a perfect match, our Rocky Tufted Sofa offers the same sense of sophistication. The retro-inspired upholstery is highlighted by a sculpted wooden frame, making it Mid-Century fabulous.
Mandy uses two navy chairs in her room to provide color as well as more seating. Our Cole Blue Tufted Chairs would be a perfect choice. Offering a Mid-Century minimalist chic design, these chairs also recline, helping you to relax and freeing up floor space because they don’t require an ottoman or footstool. The walnut-finished legs complete the sophisticated style and complement the sofa frame.
Next to the sofa, Mandy uses an arc lamp to provide task lighting as well as another Mid-Century-inspired element to the space. Our Craftsman Arc Lamp would be a great choice for your room. The bronze finish adds warmth, and the design offers a sense of drama.
Mandy and her fiancé are both musicians and having a record player in the room was important to them. She uses a fabulous Mid-Century sideboard that provides surface space and storage. Our Lawlar Storage Cabinet would be a wonderful addition to this room. The white front balances the sofa, while the wood frame features the same finish as our other furnishings.
Finally, instead of a coffee table, Mandy’s room features an assortment of drum end tables and woven benches that can be put together or pulled apart and used as seating. They feature a bronze finish that plays off of the fireplace hood and brass inlays from the floors. Our Cordoba End Table would be a great choice, and its finish adds light and reflection to your room.

When it comes to celebrity dads, Chip Gaines is definitely a favorite. We loved watching him play catch, go fishing and simply hang out with his kids on Fixer Upper. And we still get to admire him via Instagram and Joanna Gaines’s blog. She writes, “It didn’t take long after we became parents that I realized Chip was always going to be ‘The Fun Dad.’ … Chip has a childlike way about him! He always has. At work, things are 100% about work, but as soon as he gets home, it’s phones up and playtime is on.”
Design a Chip-inspired room by paying attention to comfort. Casual lines and relaxed shapes make it clear that the furniture is to be enjoyed. We bet there’s lots of forts built with the kids on weekend afternoons. Add a touch of your family’s story with lots of pictures, heirlooms and mementos from your travels. Have plenty of pillows and blankets on hand and within reach so your space is nap-ready. And include favorite activities, like a checkers board or basket of books for story time. The most important ingredient in Chip’s space is family.
