Cameron Diaz is a unique phenomenon. Who else can manage to always look effortlessly glamorous, never over the top and fun – all at the same time! While you might not have figured out how to pull off her look fashion-wise, you can now bring these stylish characteristics to your home, thanks to Elle Décor!
The online magazine showcased Diaz’s apartment, designed by Diaz and Kelly Wearstler, along with a brief interview with the actress herself. Based on the article, here are some simple ways you can add a little bit of that “Cameron appeal” to your home:
Diaz told Elle Décor, “I blame my love of sparkly, shiny things on my Cuban roots. But I also wanted a place that felt very homey, very tactile.” Her designer, Wearstler, was able to help her achieve this mix by incorporating brass furniture and fixtures in rooms like the kitchen, bedroom, dining room and living room.
Brass stands out, but does so without being too flashy and over the top. When adding brass to your home, think beyond the box. While most cabinets nowadays are made out of wood or glass, Cameron’s designer made a brass cabinet … and it looks awesome!
Don’t be afraid of unique colors
Sometimes taking a risk is necessary to achieve the look you really want. Cameron’s apartment features several striking colors, like the emerald green cabinets in the kitchen or the pop of yellow in the living room. Adding a pop of color even in something like a chandelier or a unique color palette on your walls is a great way to give your home a more eclectic feel.
Make every piece count
From the artwork to the faucet fixtures, everything in Diaz’s home has been carefully thought out to enhance the overall look of the room. Nothing seems arbitrary or looks out of place. And while none of the rooms are overcrowded, each room has defining pieces that stand out and grab your attention. Look for unique light fixtures or interesting pieces of furniture for your own home!
Designing your home to be effortlessly stylish doesn’t have to be impossible. Just try some of these ideas from Cameron Diaz’s home and you’ll transform your home in no time.
