As if we could love Mindy Kaling any more, her recent partnership with One Kings Lane has alerted us to her love of interior design (not to mention her impeccable taste). The actress already redecorated her stunning Manhattan apartment with the help of designer Sally Gotfredson from The Studio at One Kings Lane, and she has since tackled her expansive backyard in Los Angeles.
This time around, Kaling worked with interior designers Katie Ridder and Alyssa Lewis to fashion a backyard that was cozy yet spacious enough to accommodate guests for barbecues and team writing sessions. "Katie and I met through me stalking her on Instagram," Kaling confesses. "There was just something about the way she used color and scale in her homes. They’re formal but also very welcoming at the same time."
Her new backyard reflects that signature style. With a blue-green color palette, teak furniture, and an array of patterns and textures, it's safe to assume that the end result satisfies the actress's love of maximalism. Since the space was built for entertaining, Kaling is now focused on embracing what she calls "the new Mindy Kaling outdoor lifestyle," she jokes. "I can't be this misanthropic comedy writer who doesn't invite people over. I'll have to turn a new leaf in terms of how I socialize."
