Get Ready to Swoon Over Minnie Driver’s Eclectic New Home
Minnie Driver’s new Los Angeles home is a stunning blend of whimsical elegance, and we couldn’t possibly be more in love. Nestled in the Hollywood Hills, the 1940s ranch house was brought to life by interior designer Peter Dunham, who created an eclectic aesthetic that’s bursting with happy colors and patterns while reflecting Driver’s English wit and charm.
Vibrant paisleys, Indian florals, and tribal motifs are playfully tied together to make a chic yet bold impact that’s equal parts glam and eccentric. “It’s like being inside of a kaleidoscope,” said Driver.
While Driver makes sure to keep most of her exotic home kid-friendly, she said the area is a no-go zone for her eight-year-old son and his friends. “Not allowed in my lovely grown-up living room with sticky fingers,” she cheekily said. And, really, who can blame her?
Dunham added vintage pieces mixed with new items and fresh fabrics to create a layered, timeless home that’ll shine for years to come. “Everyone who walks in here says that they expect to find the queen in the loo,” said Driver, and by the looks of this bathroom fit for royalty, we most definitely understand why. A gorgeous Venetian mirror overlooks the kind of tub we’d die to sink into after a long day. A 1950s bar cart adds an additional layer of functional style while the vintage rug warms up the entire look. Basically, it’s our home decor dreams come to life.
