Since today is the official launch of Rachel Zoe’s highly anticipated book, Living In Style, we’re sharing exclusive book photos from Rachel’s beyond-chic Beverly Hills home. Her domain is clearly an extension of her glamorous style with room-after-room of original mid-century modern furniture, layers of Missoni knit throws, and pops of color via Hermes porcelain trays and Versace tea sets. It’s a mashup of fashion, modern decor and the welcoming California vibe that is ever-present with her beautiful family. Since Rachel is the expert of styling all things glamorous, we asked her for tips on how to breathe new life into your home this spring.
Update Your Bedding
"I want my bedroom to feel luxurious, ethereal and be the most comfortable room in my home. For my bedding, I love all-white with subtle pops of color in throw pillows and accents. Play with texture by layering a silk comforter, Egyptian cotton sheets, a cashmere throw and patterned pillows to finish the look.""
How To Add Color
"Think of decorative accessories for your home the same way you pick out jewelry to accessorize an outfit. It's the best way to add color and a point of interest, so choose pieces that reflect your personal style and in colors that inspire you."
What To Splurge On
"A home isn’t complete without the perfect sofa – it’s typically the focal point of your living room and the one investment piece that is definitely worth the splurge. Neutral colors like off-white or taupe, in a modern and chic style will last forever."
"When I'm throwing an intimate dinner party, I always light votive candles and line the table with low arrangements of white flowers or black calla lillies. I also like to serve dinner family-style since it's less formal, so I keep stacks of chic glass and ceramic serving platters on-hand."
