This pleasant shade of rich red is warm, comfortable and inviting, and it can be successfully used in a space of any size. Maroon can create a welcoming, well-decorated atmosphere, it is also a great fashion statment for these winter months.
Having dressed everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Nicki Minaj, Lhuillier is best known as a red carpet regular for her signature sweeping gowns. So it was no surprise to us that when we came across her spectacularly decorated L.A. home we found the most warm, sophisticated and feminine aesthetic that’s completely in tune with Lhuillier’s design philosophy. Should I even mention that shoe collection!? No comment. I hope you enjoy the peek inside as much as we did.
Ice cold winter days like today have an ambiguous effect on me. On the one hand, I start dreaming of warmer, sunny spring days with colourful blooms.

I love how she kept the base neutral which means you can completly change the mood with art and furnishings. Stay tuned as we peek inside her wardrobe, which she says is her favorite room in the house ‘It’s my happy place’. Check out her illustrations we blogged about in our yesterday’s post here.
