Take a page out of her (Vampire) Diary.
Nina Dobrev's home tour has proved to be one of our most popular, and for good reason. For one, you have the insanely popular Nina, and then there's her house, which is the definition of boho glam. While we certainly can't advise on how to replicate Nina Dobrev's Hollywood career (we think being talented, young, and drop-dead-gorgeous probably helps), we can offer tips on how to make her Hollywood home style your own.
Scroll for 4 tips to getting this luxe look in your home:
Contrast is a tried and true way to add visual drama and interest to any scene, and the concept isn't strictly limited to color. Try mixing raw, rustic materials (like this coffee table) with tailored, refined pieces (like this sofa) for an interesting and eclectic mix.
Go big with a boldly patterned element, but keep the statement small, so as not to overpower a space or overstimulate the eye. When it comes to punchy patterns, a little goes a long way.
Are you a typically a bright, fresh, and airy person? Learn to love the darkness. Throughout our design process, Nina embraced her dark side, telling MyDomaine “I never would have done it on my own, but one of my favorite things about the house is all the accents of black." Take it from Nina, a perfect sprinkling of black on white can "make [a] home feel both feminine and airy with a bit of edge...it’s perfect.”
When the photo below was posted recently on Apartment Therapy, a comment thread popped up about our decision to break from convention by pairing a dramatic gray wall with natural oak trim, rather than going with traditional painted trim. "Many people still have oak [trim], yet most of the time only white trim is shown with the richer colors..." remarked one commenter, who continued "I thought it would bother me, but I think it looks nice." Take it from us (and that commenter) that sometimes it's great to remain au naturale.
