When she’s not working on hit TV shows, Molly Sims can be found just chilling at her colonial-style home in Beverly Hills with her family. Even though she dazzles in the limelight, her style is the opposite of high drama. Instead, it’s a comfortable and family-friendly home that reveals the softer side of her personality. Domaine Home gives us a peek into Molly’s fresh and bohemian-inspired casa, and gives us some ideas for how you can DIY her interior style in your own home!
Painted in warm neutrals and full of light, Sims’ house radiates subdued comfort and livability. Patterns and color come in the form of accessories that can easily be switched out to create a different mood when the urge strikes. We’re all about the fun throw pillows and the black and white gallery wall that pops against the taupe paint and white couch.
Add some color to your own couch with these hot pink pillow covers ($48) and some vintage grainsack pillows ($195). Or take pillow matters into your own hands with 20 ideas for making your own pillows. We also love having a simple wooden tray ($50) on the coffee table to showcase some pretty candles and a succulent or two.
Molly and her husband both adore the laid-back California lifestyle, and their low-key energy is definitely felt throughout the house. The decor is young and modern, but also feels like real people live there. There are beachy accents like a mermaid vase, wicker baskets and vibrant yellow throw pillows.
Are you trying to add more nautical elements to your room? Get the look with a mermaid vase ($75) of your very own! Stuff your pillows into some yellow shibori covers ($25) and grab a pair of blue and green glazed lamps ($750), one for each of your long side tables ($250).
Though clean lines and comfort are the primary focus of the decor, the emphasis is equally on treasures that Molly and her husband have collected over the years. The Sims wanted a house filled with art, photographs and things that remind them of what they love.
The formal dining room is painted a daring glossy black and the striped chairs make for the perfect seating arrangement. The whole room is only two colors except for a worn, antique rug that warms the room up. Click here for some more dark wall design inspiration if you’re thinking of mixing up a shady hue of your own.
The kitchen’s gray cabinetry is complemented by a pair of red x-marks-the-spot industrial stools and an array of turquoise stemware and vintage blue and white china.
The gray palette of the kitchen is carried through into the breakfast nook with upholstered wingback chairs and a gray and white marble pedestal table. The neutral colors becomes the ideal backdrop to display bright colorful dishes like those blue goblets. Love those love glasses? Us, too! And we bet you could achieve a similar look with nothin’ but a Sharpie!
To get the look for your dining or breakfast area, grab a set of gray Abigail chairs ($500) and get the Sims’ same round marble table ($2,000). Buy a bubble chandelier ($1,800) or, if you’re like us, try making your own!
Even though the family’s blue dishes and cups are vintage, you get a similar look with these bright bubble cups ($2) and jardin dinner plates ($24).
