Home Tour: Tyra Banks’ Charming Los Angeles Hideaway

It’s no surprise that supermodel Tyra Banks’ Beverly Hills home looks like something straight out of a magazine. She recently listed the property, which is a 1926 Spanish Colonial, for $7.75 million. Architectural Digest gave us a peek inside the charming, vintage home.

The home is full of character from exposed wood beams to built-in bookcases. The color palette is crisp and neutral, capturing the airy beauty of Beverly Hills and cultivating a tranquil atmosphere that turns this gorgeous home into a special hideaway. As soon as you enter through the impressive wood gates that lead into the property, it feels like you’ve entered into another world.

The decor in this home is inspiring both for living and for home staging. It captures that perfect balance of neutral decor with the charm that makes it feel like a warm, inviting home. There are a lot of great ideas to take from this home tour. You’re sure to find at least one thing inspiring about it.

Hotel Tour: Singapore’s Minimalist Black and White Hotel Mono

Hotels offer some of the best design inspiration, especially boutique hotels. The Hotel Mono in Singapore is a great example of this. Located in Singapore’s Chinatown and converted from six historic shop houses, Hotel Mono adopted a strict black and white color palette that makes it striking and unique and a must-see for travelers and design enthusiasts alike.

The hotel skillfully mixes modern elements with Rococco-era features original to the building. The result is a design full of compelling contrasts: black and white, old and new. Every room is unique but sticks to the modern black and white theme.

This hotel tour is full of inspiration on how to use a monochromatic color scheme in a way that is stylish and eye-catching.

The way the tile extends across the entire wall and into the shower, for example, lengthens the space while the white opens it up.

Home Tour: Lea Michele’s Fresh LA Retreat

Actress Lea Michele recently traded in the hustle and bustle of her Hollywood home for a more private, tranquil retreat in a canyon in West L.A. The home is outfitted with the same idea of being a place in which she can unwind and escape from the craziness of her Hollywood life. This translates to clean lines, a soft color palette, and beautiful views of the nature that surrounds the property.

If you love the look of modern decor with personality, then this home will definitely give you some ideas and inspiration. Though the decor has a minimalist sensibility, Lea has accented it with decor that has character and charm. It’s modest, yet very comfortable.

10 Splendid Ideas for Striped Furniture

Stripes are one of my favorite patterns to decorate with because they are always chic and never go out of style. It doesn’t matter what style the rest of the decor is, stripes always work with it and can be counted on to provide some character and charm.

Striped furniture is a great way to bring this pattern into a space. As I said, it is a classic choice that never goes out of style, whether you want to use it on a large piece, such as a sofa, or a smaller piece, such as an armchair or ottoman. It all depends on the kind of impact you want to make. Striped furniture can be as bold or subtle as you’d like.

Here are 10 rooms with striped furniture that show how versatile and stylish this timeless look can be.
