Leading Ladies

When I think of the most classy, beautiful, and elegant women of all time, I think of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Grace Kelly. These women exude grace, sensuality, and ease. Since I love these women so much, I often wonder what their homes would look like. No doubt they’d be just as  fabulous as them! Here is my interpretation of their lives behind closed doors!

Marilyn Monroe was the bombshell of the 50’s. She is the essence of Hollywood glamor. When I think of Marilyn, I think glitz and glam, curves and fur, and pops of color. Jane Seymour’s Hollywood Swank collection, and the Lavelle collection from Aico are exactly that. Silks and fringe, jewel embellishments, curved sofa backs and dark finishes all remind me of Marilyn.

Now lets visit Audrey’s house. When I think of Audrey Hepburn, it’s a little black dress, sunglasses, and a long cigarette. Black and white, sleek lines, sparkles and metallics are what she’s all about. Try some of these items to create a room inspired by this Fair Lady.

Finishing up our Hollywood tour is Grace Kelly. Award-winning actress and former Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly was known for being graceful, classy, and timeless.
