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.

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.
