E! News correspondent Catt Sadler is an arbiter of style both in and outside the studio, and her new luxe-meets-laid-back living room reflects that. With the help of the designers at Laurel & Wolf, Sadler created a space that was elevated but functional that utilizes a mix of both mid-century and modern elements. The result was a room that was casual enough for family time, yet glam enough to reflect her high-profile style. Check out the full tour here, and then scroll down to see how to achieve the same light and airy look in your own home. Warning: We promise you’ll be left with some serious decorating #goals.
Laurel & Wolf designer Kimberly Winthrop wanted to develop a space that spoke true to her client’s relaxed personality. She chose to work with some of Sadler’s current items, like her contemporary credenza, paired with newer pieces for a room that’d be appropriate for cocktails on the couch with friends or family game-night.
In terms of Sadler’s own style, she likes to keep accessorizing to a minimum, so Winthrop translated this tone into the room by working with a simplistic vibe. Other than the staple furniture pieces, you won’t find much clutter taking up this space.
Continuing the modern, minimalist trend, the designer selected gold and lucite pieces for any necessary accents. Coupled with Sadler’s neutral walls and flooring, this gave the area *all* the warm and inviting feels without the extra clutter.
Despite the living room’s softer qualities, Winthrop inserted a few statement pieces in the area as well. Some of these included: a lively wall art piece, accented gold fur stools, a marble fireplace, and a reupholstered velvet lounger. The collection of items remained consistent with the room’s aesthetic, but ultimately kept it interesting enough to capture the attention of guests.
For added intrigue on the other side of the room, a blush lounger was positioned against floor-to-ceiling windows. While it’s a welcome retreat on the rare day this leading lady has a moment to recline, Sadler claims she can’t keep her dog off of it (and we definitely don’t blame her).
With its polished accents and distinct additions, the space has become more than just a place to rest her feet. Sadler’s living room has become the “social hub” of festivities or informal gatherings alike. We’ll stay tuned for our personal invite over.
