While at the gym last week, I picked up the July issue of InStyle to distract myself until my time on the elliptical was up, and it made me wish I still had a subscription. The issue featured Kristen Bell (of “Heroes” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) and her lovely home decorated by Stacey Vuduris Interior Design.
I’ve read Everything LEB gush about Schumacher’s “Chiang Mai Dragon” fabric and got to see it in all its glory in Bell’s living room:
I love a lot of things about this living room: the neutral base with pops of color, the Chinese garden stools (I have one in my living room, too), the colorful piping on the side chair, and most of all the gorgeous turquoise lamp.
Her kitchen is so cool and inviting. I really want to have white cabinets and light gray granite or marble counters someday. Notice how Vuduris carried the Dragon fabric into the kitchen with the upholstered stools.
Finally, I’m smitten with her outdoor space. I’d take that pool any day, and the couch looks like the perfect place to relax with a mojito in hand:
Bell’s house seems so unpretentious and inviting, a great mix of basics and interesting colors and objects to keep things interesting.
Kristen, I think it’s a shame that Elle was killed off and would love to discuss the character’s budding romance with Sylar over cocktails, poolside. Your pool, naturally. Care to take me up on it?
