We may know Hilary Duff for her iconic starring role on Disney's Lizzie McGuire, but if her Los Angeles home is any indication, her talents extend far beyond the silver screen. Duff recently welcomed Better Homes & Gardens into her vibrant abode, which she redecorated with the help of Studio Life.Style's Shannon Wollack and Brittany Zwickl.
"Hilary wanted her home to feel feminine and modern but definitely lived-in and cozy," explains Wollack. When it came to accommodating Hilary's flair for vibrant patterns and designs, she admits that it was a bit of a balancing act. The design duo made sure to dial back the furniture and color palette around every statement piece Hilary chose. "The key was merging all the elements together and keeping scale in mind," adds Wollack.
The resulting look is a mix of contemporary pieces and antique finds to give the space a unique vintage appeal. "Each room's quirky decor works together so the whole house flows and feels high-spirited," adds the magazine. Step inside Hilary Duff's playful Los Angeles home below:
Despite not considering herself particularly "girlie," Duff selected the dusty rose color of her door herself. Here she is pictured with her Yorkie, Jak.
The first pop of color comes in the form of three vintage Turkish kilims sewn together to adorn the staircase. "Cutting up the rugs to make them fit exactly was so stressful," admits Duff.
Hilary's love of vintage furnishings is evident in the entry hall, where a midcentury credenza, Gothic spool chair, and leather-framed mirror make a lasting impression.
The living room is an ode to retro, Old Hollywood glamour, with a rounded sofa, brass side tables, and two coral velvet chairs taking center stage.
The designers added recessed shelves in the living room to create a design-conscious home for Hilary's art and design books, which are interspersed with mementos and other personal objects.
Hilary's love of vibrant patterns is on full display with Damien Hirst's "Butterfly Kaleidoscope," which hangs above a whitewashed credenza behind the sofa in the living room.
Duff spotted this arts and crafts wallpaper in a Manhattan lobby, and Wollack and Zwicki managed to track it down. "I grew up with wallpaper. My mom was fanatical about it, so it makes me feel nostalgic," adds Duff.
A blue shade chandelier hovers above a rustic table and chairs set in the dining room, reflecting the light of the swimming pool outside.
Duff loved this zigzag tile pattern so much, she covered an entire wall of the kitchen with it, plus the bar backsplash and dining counter on the back patio.
"The tiles screamed at me when I first saw them," Duff said of the Ann Sacks pattern. "They were so happy. I knew they'd bring a jolt of energy into the house."
