Joanna Gaines is the face of farmhouse style décor. She puts 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:
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.
There’s something nostalgic and beautiful about framing and hanging vintage maps in farmhouse style décor. Whether it’s from your city, your travels or your dreams, framed vintage maps add a sense of adventure to your room.
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.

Hollywood celebrity Liev Schreiber is known for playing edgy and rugged movie characters, and the New York apartment he shares with his two young sons and puppy has the same aesthetic. With distressed oak floors and steel open staircases, the industrial feel is urban style décor at its finest. He recently invited Architectural Digest in for a tour. We love the open feel of the kitchen and living room, as well as how much his kids are represented in the décor. We also love the bedrooms designed for his boys.

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?
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.
