Last spring, Domino featured Brooklyn Decker’s Austin home. The home design is impressive. It’s a mix of denim, wood, crazy beautiful “cookies-n-cream” marble, and antique heirlooms. It feels curated and personal. What’s even more awesome than the house is the fact that Brooklyn didn’t hire a famed interior designer. She decorated the home herself. So, not only is she an entrepreneur, actress, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, married to a tennis legend, and Kevin Bacon’s doppelganger, she’s also a remarkable interior designer. If you look up total package in the dictionary, I’m guessing you’ll see her picture (preferably of her and her zit, Cindy Crawford). Add absolutely hilarious to the list of reasons why we love Brooklyn Decker.
I actually took the picture of her living room to a local carpenter and had him build me a coffee table similar to hers. I had him scale it down a bit to fit in my living room. I then took it to my local upholsterer and had her cover the piece in a similar camel colored vinyl. I know, I know, why not leather? It was going to be quadruple the price, and the main reason I wanted a coffee table like this was so that Scarlett (and future kids) could be as rough as they wanted to be on it. I know myself, and if it was leather, I would have had a heart attack any time she so much as set a toy on it–much less stand on top of and jump around wildly while flinging milk everywhere from her sippy cup (not that I let her do that… ;)). It ended up being a little more expensive than options I found online, but I needed a certain size so I was able to easily and affordably customize it.
- Mirror – I didn’t realize the large mirror in Brooklyn’s living room wasn’t a window until I started putting this look together. The windowpane mirror clearly did it’s job!
- Coffee table – In my hunt for a coffee table that looked like Brooklyn’s, I almost purchased this one. The dimensions, sadly, weren’t right for my living room, but I love the look of it.
- Light blue couch – Brooklyn did a masterful job at combining these two couches that are differing colors and styles.
- Chair – These chairs are one of my favorite features of the room.
- Dark blue couch – More proof that Chesterfield sofas look good any and everywhere.
- Faux sheepskin rug – I own a few of these. They soften every room I put them in.
- Pillow – Ya know how I feel about stripes.
- Native American print – Her home has a southwestern vibe to it. This print fits that aesthetic perfectly.
- Pillow – This pillow has a tribal touch to it, too.
- Tray – I’m totally feeling the gold inlay on this tray. I’ve also learned that with having an upholstered coffee table, a tray is essential to corral things on top.
In case you don’t know who Brooklyn Decker is, here’s a picture of her from Austin Ways magazine. Can we also talk about the fact that I would look like I was going to work in a mechanic’s shop if I wore this jumpsuit? Not on Brooklyn, though! She looks stunning.
