Actress Lena Headey is known for playing a queen on Game of Thrones who lives a lavish lifestyle but in real life, she prefers things much more casual and understated. This is reflected in the home she recently finished renovating the San Fernando Valley. Built in the 1950s, Lena knew it was the place for her as soon as she stepped inside and hired a builder to help her bring her vision for the property to life.
The home now has an open-concept layout that is bright and airy. Lena made sure that many of the home’s original features were preserved while updating it with a mid-century modern aesthetic. There are rustic touches that give it a casual edge that is unique to Lena, who has a carefree and uninhibited vibe that is reflected in the home.
Check out this inspiring home tour from Dwell to see the results of Lena’s beautiful passion project.
