Lisa Vanderpump knows a thing or two about crafting a gorgeous space. Her Los Angeles restaurants are renowned for their sumptuous and exotic qualities, and her stunning hilltop home in Beverly Hills, Villa Rosa, sets the bar for luxe California living. I mean is there anyone out there who wouldn’t want to live in Vanderpumpland?
Lisa recently took to her website Very Vanderpump to share some of her most trusted design secrets. Here are her top five essentials for making a space warm, inviting, and stylish that can be applied to any room, whether your taste is glam, like Lisa’s, or modern, or traditional.
Incorporate Vases and Flowers into Your Space
“Vases are such an important element to your home, as flowers are one of the easiest and most beautiful ways to add glamour and romance to your décor.” See some of our favorite vases for under $25 here.
Create a Focal Point with a Work of Art
“Invest in a fantastic piece of art and design your room around it. This doesn’t have to be an extremely expensive piece—it can be anything from a postcard to a child’s drawing. The trick is to frame it and light it beautifully.” Get some framing tips here.
Add a Touch of Glamour with a Silver Tray
“It doesn’t have to be real silver but a classic silver or silver-plated tray is essential. You can find these in a variety of styles from ornate and romantic to simple and modern.”
Dim the Lights
“There is nothing more essential to a home than light dimmers. Replace your light switches with dimmers and you can add immediate ambiance to any room in seconds.”
Create a Glow with Candles
“There is nothing sexier, more romantic or elegant than candlelight. Buy a few tapered candlesticks and place them in tall glass or crystal holders. Add a few tea lights around the base to make it more interesting.” Check out some of our favorite candles here.
