When it comes to interior decorating, Mindy Kaling admits that her personal approach is less minimalist and more maximalist. So for her recent New York apartment makeover, she enlisted the help of the experts to keep things reigned in. Designer Sally Gotfredson from One Kings Lane helped Kaling curate a combo of mid-century furniture, graphic textures, and an earthy color palette — ideas that we immediately stole because her apartment is totally amazing. Scroll down to see how you can get the look on your own, and then head over to One Kings Lane for the full tour.
Mindy Kaling’s living room
Kaling has written almost 50 TV episodes right from her couch, so the girl knows a thing or two about working from home. She wanted a living room that felt like a creative retreat with just a few subtle accent colors.
If you love the “Moroccan mid-century” vibe of Kaling’s living room, pick up a leather, woven chair, graphic poufs, a sleek side table, and a fun crystal paperweight. Add bold punches of color with gold leaf artwork — DIY project, anyone? — and yellow mud cloth throw pillows.
