Get the Look of Chiara Ferragni’s Quirky Home
Modeling, managing a popular fashion blog The Blonde Salad, running a shoe business or redecorating her SoCal home — it’s all just another day in the life of Italian blogger and fashionista Chiara Ferragni. The style maven has millions of social media followers who are obsessed with her playful sense of fashion, so it only makes sense that her home echoes that “pop-chic” fashion aesthetic. Total surprise: Chiara is a massive Mickey Mouse fan, and the classic black and white cartoon played a crucial role in how she decorated her living room. Primary colors? Check. Huge poster of the mouse himself? Check, check. Take a peek at Chiara’s quirky home tour on My Domaine, and then scroll down to see how to get the same look in your home.
According to My Domaine, one of Chiara’s most prized possessions is a vintage Mickey Mouse telephone. Playing off her soft spot for the mouse, the living room features a bold primary color palette, graphic accessories and lots of black and white decor. The addition of gold metallics and luxe textures keeps the room chic, not cheesy.
Chiara’s living room is the perfect example of how to turn something you love into a stylish space. Channel the same playful vibes in your living room with colorful planters, unexpected textures and quirky pieces like eyeball print pillows and a lip print throw blanket. Add an unexpected element like funny art pieces or a playful marquee light for that extra wow factor.
Stanley Print House Disney Mickey Mouse Poster ($0.79+), Kelly Wearstler Classic Kiss Alpaca Throw ($495), H&M Velvet Cushion Cover ($10), Dot & Bo Eye on You Throw Pillow ($42), Article Sven Sofa ($3,500), Vintage Marquee Lights Rusty Hashtag Marquee Light ($229), Z Gallerie Lucida Tray ($50), The Land of Nod Balloon Animal Blue Dog Bookend ($49), Laura Ashley Home Snake Plant in Fiberstone Planter ($360), Lulu & Georgia Allie Coffee Table ($1,103), Justina Blakeney Fable Rug ($1,649), iNSTANT Home Christina Club Chair ($1,000)
Chiara shares a home with her boyfriend, so it was important that the space reflected both of their tastes. A blue and white color palette is a luxe look that works well with touches of metallic accents and dark wood.
If you love the oceanic effect of Chiara’s dining area, get the same look with a wood and metal table and black chairs. A neutral rug will balance out the dark furniture, while black and white dishes keep the space fresh and modern.
Kelly Wearstler Hand-Sculpted Pop Bowl ($1,495), H&M Patterned Tea Towel ($5), West Elm Copenhagen Reclaimed Wood Round Dining Table ($1,699), Macy’s Mikasa Dinnerware ($40+), Lulu & Georgia Aura Rug ($163+), Joss & Main Bria Side Chair ($621), H&M Stoneware Jug ($25)
Since the rest of the house is bright and graphic, Chiara chose to keep the master bedroom fresh and simple. An all-white duvet is a timeless look, but is easily accessorized with fur blankets, gold pillows and a suede catchall bowl.
Mid-century furniture is having a bit of moment, so bring in a couple dark wood mid-century nightstands to complement an all-white bed set. Save valuable nightstand space with a floor lamp and keep a catchall bowl on hand to keep your earrings together. Skip the house plant altogether and take a tip from Chiara’s bedroom with a vase of lit branches instead.
H&M Patterned Cushion Cover ($10), Comfort House Monogrammed Leather Catchall Tray ($63), Threshold Crosby Schoolhouse Floor Lamp ($60), Foremost Mid Century Modern Living Room Collection Porter Mid Century Modern Side Table ($97), Nine Space Faux Fur Throw ($80), H&M Scented Candle in Glass Holder ($6), Lulu & Georgia Tinke Rug ($712), Pier 1 Imports LED Lit Willow Bundle ($25), H&M Linen Duvet Cover Set ($129)

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
