We’ve Got the Look: Mandy Moore’s Living Room

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.

The Cole Blue Tufted Chairs is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
Accent Chairs

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.

The Craftsman Arc Lamp is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
Floor Lamp

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.

The Lawlar Storage Cabinet is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
Sideboard

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.

The Cordoba Bronze End Table is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
End Tables

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.

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.

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: Joanna Gaines

Joanna Gaines is one of the most stylish TV moms around. Not only did she make farmhouse style the hottest look of the past few years; she put 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:

 

Shiplap

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.

 

Vintage Maps

There’s something nostalgic and beautiful about framing and hanging vintage maps. Whether it’s from your city, your travels or your dreams, framed vintage maps add a sense of adventure to your room.

 

Pendant Lights

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.

We’ve Got the Look: Katy Perry’s Mediterranean-Style Living Room

Singer Katy Perry’s performances at the Grammy and American Music Awards have been dramatic and even a bit controversial. It should be no surprise that her Hollywood Hills home – the one she once shared with now ex-husband actor Russell Brand – was over the top, too.

 

Katy Perry Living Room

 

The Mediterranean style four-bedroom home got the royal treatment with stained glass windows, coffered ceilings, a stone-wall foyer and oversized fireplaces. The grounds included a grotto-style pool, Japanese garden and babbling brook. Perry recently sold the house for $5.65 million, but if your dream is to live like a queen we’ve got the look (for a lot less). Take a look at these pieces you can pull together to create your own castle-inspired abode:

 

 

Katy Perry SofaKaty Perry Gylnallen Sofa
Start with the sofa. We offer two options that mimic the plush lines of Perry’s place. Our oversized Hudson Sofa (left) is upholstered in plush woven chenille. With thick rounded arms and accent pillows in a contrasting color and texture, it’s as comfortable as it looks. Or go more formal with our Glynallen Sofa (right). In a traditional style, it features decorative carved trim and chenille upholstered cushions. The look is made even more opulent by the combination of patterns, trim and details on its accent pillows.

 

Katy Perry Heidi Accent ChairKaty Perry Glynallen Accent Chair

 

Add more seating to the room with accent chairs. In Perry’s living room, the look is regal and refined with a combination of seating in two styles. The Heidi Chair (left) is a great choice, with its hand-carved wood arms and legs, textured fabric upholstery, and nail-head trim. Use a pair on one side of your sofa. Then add a unique chair, like our Glynallen Accent Chair (right), for another layer of style. While its lines complement the Heidi Chair, this piece will add interest with its spool-like carved legs and back, and blended upholstery choices in fabric and leather.

 

Katy Perry Ottoman
Instead of a traditional wood cocktail table, Perry’s room uses a plush ottoman in a butter color. We think the Cocktail Ottoman, designed by Cindy Crawford, would make a great addition. Its generous proportions provide plenty of room for a tray, and it’s large enough to be used as additional seating during large gatherings.

 

Katy Perry Sofa Table Katy Perry End Table
A collection of tables makes the room party-ready. Perry’s living room has a carved sofa table placed against a wall to display a favorite accent piece. Our Norcastle Sofa Table would also be perfect for this purpose. Its rich finish is enhanced by exquisite detailing and cast metal filigree, and its beveled glass top makes it practical for entertaining. Next, we incorporate an end table for more surface areas. Our Priazzo Round End Table is attractive and versatile, with curved lines and a glass top that helps lighten the feel of this rich room.

 

Katy Perry Floor Lamp
Finally, add a floor lamp to the room to bring in more light. The Thompson Floor Lamp has a rounded base and trimmed shade. Traditional in lines and detail, it fits perfectly with the Old World, opulent feel of this room.
