We’ve Got the Look: Rob Lowe’s Living Room

Actor Rob Lowe and his wife, Sheryl, recently opened their newly renovated Georgian-style Santa Barbara home to Architectural Digest. Instead of the California contemporary design you might expect, the couple found inspiration from the Virginia-area style, architect Don Nulty said.

“Sheryl loves beautiful things and is definitely a collector,” designer David Phoenix said in the interview. For example, an English dog painting is set over the living room fireplace and a photograph by Lyndie Benson hangs above a Dutch secretary.

If you like the updated traditional look of the Lowes’ living room, we’ve got the look …

Start with a classic white sofa. This piece is versatile and can blend with any style décor. Our Lafayette Sofa features similar rounded lines and comfortable plush cushions. Part of our Detroit Sofa Company line, you get to choose the fabric for your toss pillows. Pick a color that matches your decor, or select something in a rich copper or red like the Lowes have in their room.

An oversized gray ottoman provides a modern feel to the traditional room, adding seating while keeping the room open. Our NB2 Daybed Chaise would be a great addition. While it has low arms, the piece adds elegance and style to the room, and allows an unobstructed view of the room.

A pair of white accent chairs keeps things clean and light and provides balance to the space. Our Flynn Velvet White Chairs would look wonderful in the room. The soft upholstery adds a touch of luxury, while the sleek lines are timeless.

A cocktail table introduces a chic metal to the Lowes’ room, and the geometric design of the base adds interest. Our Murdock Rectangular Cocktail Table offers a wonderful contrast to the white sleek seating. The removable tray top in a rich wood finish allows you to move a surface where it’s needed, such as on the daybed, while the metal base has unique lines that provide pattern and warmth.

An end table in the Lowes’ room has a white marble top and dark base. While not perfect match, our Derby Faux Marble End Table provides the same feel. The white top plays off of the white seating, and the metal legs complement the cocktail table.

Finally, two crystal chandeliers pay homage to the Georgian-style home. Our Eleanor Chandeliers would provide the same look to your room, dressing up the space with its candelabra style and adding a bit of sparkle with crystals and chrome.

We’ve Got the Look: Nate Berkus’s Nursery

Celebrity design couple Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent recently opened the doors of their Manhattan home to Architectural Digest, and it’s every bit as beautiful as you might imagine. One of the most enchanting rooms is the nursery of their daughter, Poppy. Done in soft grays and whites with metallic accents, the small space is chic and playful. If you like their style, we’ve got the look.

Start with a classic white crib. Nate and Jeremiah chose a Victorian-style spindle crib in timeless white, and our Linden Crib is a great match. Curved details give the bed some personality, but the simple style makes it a clean slate for choosing the rest of the room’s décor.

Adding texture as well as glamour is a white faux fur stool. In a small room, each piece stands out, and this soft furnishing provides a place for Poppy to sit or a place for the dads to put up their feet. For your room, our Dutchess White Faux Fur Stool would provide the same great benefits.

Tucked beneath a changing table is a mirrored storage piece. Not only does it provide space to organize Poppy’s clothing and gear; the mirrored sides make the room feel larger. Our Hudson Mirrored Chest would have the same result, and this glamorous piece will grow with your baby or blend into another room when no longer needed.

Finally, Nate and Jeremiah use a mixture of gold-leaf mirrors and framed artwork to dress up the nursery. Our Albany Gold Wall Mirror would be a good start. Then frame your favorite black and white prints, and create a gallery wall.

We’ve Got the Look: Anne Hathaway’s Connecticut Dining Room

Actress Anne Hathaway recently bought a 4,561-square-foot home in Connecticut for $2.8 million. Rich with charm, the gorgeous five-bedroom 1920 estate has the quaint feel of a New England cottage with European design and flair.

 

We love the stunning dining room, which has lots of character. The cozy stone fireplace sets a rustic tone, while the crystal chandelier provides a touch of sparkle and glamour. If you like the room that features a touch of new and old, we’ve got the look.

 

Start with a farmhouse table. This beautiful piece is from Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Home Collection. The keyed trestle table is weighty for a statement piece in the room. Perfect for dinner, it’s also a great place for homework and craft projects.

 

Hathaway’s room pairs rustic with modern, using vintage cantilever-style frame chairs. Our Father Dining Chairs offer the same look. The leather-look upholstery is quilted and features a distressed finish, which blends well with the farmhouse table. The dark frame offers an urban touch, which works well in this room.

 

In the corner, Hathaway has a china cabinet to hold and display serving pieces. Our San Rafael Display Cabinet works well with the farmhouse table, and the circle pattern on the doors offers a beautiful design element.

 

Finally, a crystal chandelier sets a special tone in Hathaway’s room. Our stunning Eleanor Chandelier offers the same effect and has the look of a candelabrum. It features chrome and crystals for an elegant display.
