Father’s Day Style: Chip Gaines

Magnolia Home Homestead Sectional
The Homestead Sectional is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.

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.”

Chip Gaines Style

Chip shared a great photo on Instagram of him napping with one of his boys on the family’s sofa. His style is definitely relaxed and kid-friendly, like the Magnolia Home Homestead Sectional. There’s plenty of room for the whole family to hang out, laugh, play games or read.

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.

Celebrity Home: Will Arnett’s LA Prefab

Actor Will Arnett is known for his sharp sense of humor and willingness to be different, and his new Los Angeles home reflects his personality. He hired architect Suchi Reddy, who studied in Detroit, and prefab company LivingHomes to design a 3,975-square-foot steel-frame custom home.

Arnett says his home is reminiscent of his Canadian upbringing. “Growing up in Toronto, we had these great ravines, and there was one house in particular that was very modern, with a lot of glass,” he told Dwell. “I remember people saying, ‘That place looks weird.’ And I remember being like, it’s not weird, it’s rad.”

We love the modern and airy feel of his living room, and if you like Arnett’s style, we’ve got the look.

Here’s What You Need

Celebrity Home

Start with a pair of charcoal gray sofas. Our Sidney Road Truffle Sofa from the Cindy Crawford Home Collection is a great choice, and it features the added detail of nailhead trim.

Celebrity Home

A Mid-Century inspired chair adds to the modern feel of the room as well as a wooden element. Our Rocky Arm Chair is a great choice, and it ships to your home for free.

Celebrity Home

Arnett’s room uses three coffee tables to connect his seating collection. Not only do they provide plenty of surfaces for beverages and books; they can easily be moved to the side if he’s entertaining and needs the floor space. Our Leeds Coffee Table provides the same lines, which complement the design and style of the room. The square base helps keep the line of the room open.

Celebrity Home

A black round side table sits next to the accent chair, holding a few accent pieces. Our Acton Black End Table would be a good choice, as its pedestal base keeps the room feeling open.

Celebrity Home

Finally, Arnett has an oversized rug with an abstract print to anchor his living room. The light gray colors are calming and add a subtle pattern. Our Torrance Slate Rug would be a great choice. The soft colors provide a nice contrast to the charcoal sofas, and they help marry the marble top of the coffee tables.

Mother’s Day Style: Kris Jenner

Celebrity moms have style. As the matriarch of the Kardashians, Kris Jenner is known for being outspoken and bold. Her interior style reflects her personality, 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 Jenner’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 Jenner 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

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

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.
