When actress Minnie Driver, who hails from the UK, decided to downsize from her palatial Spanish-style home, she was delighted to find a 1940s ranch house in the Hollywood Hills that felt like an English cottage. With the help of English interior designer Gaynor Churchward, she went to work turning the blank slate into a home that is full of charm and character like the ones she grew up in.
She spent a lot of time traveling when she was growing up, so she wanted a space that embodied the memories of the fantastic places she had experienced and captured her eclectic sense of style. The result is something unique, inspiring, and full of personality.
The home brilliantly mixes styles, colors, and patterns to create a place that feels worldly and comfortable. Enjoy this special home tour courtesy of Elle Decor.
