Living in the Limelight: Famous Celebrities and Their Living Rooms
June 30, 2015
Living rooms are the most open and exposed place in a house. One reason for this is because most events and gatherings happen here. Because people gather around the living room, it is not surprising that homeowners will format it according to their taste. They will put sofa beds for comfort, while others will add a painting or two. And celebrities, like regular people, enjoy arranging their living rooms according to how they like it. The only difference is that they do it a lot more glamorously.
The famous talk show host has a living room that reflects her personality – simple yet sophisticated. Its sophistication is matched with quirky twists. She kept her main pieces of pieces of furniture more classic and timeless, and added youth and uniqueness using accessories and artwork. The modern pieces made a perfect contrast with the classic pieces – making the whole home look collected and effortless.
Adam Levine, the famous lead vocalist from the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5 and was titled the sexiest man in 2013, has one of the most unusual living rooms ever. The most obvious and perhaps most unusual elements are the purple sofa on the red rug. This color combination is not a color combination that you can casually do – but he apparently got it right and it matches his rebellious and funky nature.
Donatella Versace is the famous Italian designer known for the Versace line. Her living room in Milan has a rich golden palette, intricate coffered ceilings, and geometric floors – something truly un-minimalistic. To make her living room more elegant, it has a pair of massive Empire-style urns flank a painting from the school of Panini, and graphic sofas. Just talk about elegance just in one part of the house.
The famous singer and songwriter John Mayer has a modern living room. His living room features furnishings such as a Grembo sofa – which is deep enough to act as a bed – curved lamps, and a smark cocktail table. His sofas have velvet pillows which are great in adding comfort. It also has a stool made of woven water hyacinth which adds more texture to his living room.
Zooey Deschanel, a television celebrity known for her role in New Girl and 500 Days of Summer, has one of the best living rooms/studio. Its walls have the same color as her eyes, which match and actually look great with her skin. If there is one thing that we can learn from this design, it must be that one’s house must be flattering to one’s face and figure. If something doesn’t look good on you, you shouldn’t surround yourself with it.
Despite the differences in style and furnishings used by these celebrities, always keep in mind that living rooms are made for the comfort not only of the guests but also of the homeowners. Make it as stylish as that of the stars without sacrificing comfort.
