Celebrity Lighting…

Let’s share some Lighting with the Celebrities…

Please welcome another guest blogger to The Trendy Home,  Emily Chadwick from Arcadian Lighting.

Celebrities often provide fodder for the style pages of Vogue, Marie Claire and Esquire, but some of them maintain such chicness and style in their homes as well.  In the pages of Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, etc. our favorite celebrities proudly display their beautiful collections of light fixtures, modern furniture and impeccably cared-for antiques. Here is a collection of our favorite celebrity rooms:

Celebrity Rooms

Keri Russell via Elle Décor

When Keri Russell’s Brooklyn abode was featured in the April 2011 issue of Elle Décor, it caused quite a bit of fanfare among shelter bloggers. Why? Because it is a chic, feminine yet modern space that looked so cozy and welcoming. This living room, for instance, featured an Ochre pendant light, linen-upholstered armchairs and gorgeous sheer mauve curtains.

Celebrity Rooms

Betsey Johnson via Elle Decor UK

An apartment this pink and peppy couldn’t belong to anyone else other than the peppy, cartwheeling fashion designer, Betsey Johnson.  Pink may not be for everyone, but if you can get past that initially shocking bright color, you’ll see a truly gorgeous apartment with a lot of great mid-century modern pieces.  Johnson is shown seated in a William Platner Arm Chair.  In her bedroom is an Arco Floor Lamp and a Saarinen Womb Chair. Truly great pieces that show impeccable taste.

Celebrity Rooms

Erin Fetherson via Vogue

Count Erin Fetherson is yet another fashion designer with a chic, feminine home.  Here she is jumping on her extra large custom-made bed, which is flanked by chinoiserie lamps and vintage nightstands.

Celebrity Rooms

Sheryl Crow via Architectural Digest

Sheryl Crow’s Hollywood home was featured in Architectural Digest earlier this year and it’s another beautifully decorated space.  Shown here, is the singer’s living room which mixes modern and vintage pieces quite well.  For instance, the sofa is modern, while the Italian pendant lights are vintage pieces.


Celebrity Rooms

Michael Feinstein via Architectural Digest

In the office of singer, songwriter and composer Michael Feinstein, is a wall decorated with memorabilia. The salon-style hangings of personally-important photos, articles and autographs is a testament to a successful career. Not only that, but it’s a great way to create an accent wall in any home; just pair it with a couple of arm chairs and side table to complete the look.

It’s always interesting to see celebrity homes — when they’re featured in shelter magazines — how they incorporate their own careers and personalities into their home’s décor and design. It’s a lesson for non-celebs, too, that your home should be filled with the things you love and express who you are.
