When seeking a base accent color for a living room, maroon is an excellent choice when decorating. 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.
London-based studio DOS Architects converted in 2008 the top two floors of the Westbourne Grove Church, a 1853 Baptist chapel located in London’s Notting Hill. I don’t know if I could live in church conversion but what I love about it, it’s a loft-like residence with an open floor plan and high ceilings that offers both comfort and privacy for its owners.
This new place embellished by the craftsmanship of the architects, mixes old with new, reuniting state of the art technology, fine finishes and architectural details. Even though the modern concept dominates some of the traditional elements have been kept, such as the arched windows and the gothic elements.

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.
