Hayley Williams's Nashville home is up for sale, and we're impressed. Not because the house is especially grand (it isn't), but because Hayley's decorating style is so fun and playful, without being too out there. In fact, it's full of ideas we'd like to steal for our own decorating projects.
Hayley the singer-songwriter and lead vocalist of the band Paramore, and the house is reported to have provided her with 'creative inspiration'. We can see why – it's a modern home renovated with panache. Here are the top style lessons we'll take from it.
1. Mix and match lighting accents
As soon as you look inside, the lighting choices are really striking. From angular, Mid-century fixtures to soft and curvy table lamps, the living room lighting ideas demonstrate how to mix and match lighting styles without going either too modern or too vintage. Hayley has gone with a good strategy – use one statement light, and keep the others fairly neutral.
2. Liven up a square space with a patterned ceiling
This house was built in 1931, when home proportions perhaps weren't the most generous. If you're working with a room that's both on the smaller side and is square, it's not a bad idea to let it breathe a little more by introducing either color-blocked painted wall ideas or, as shown here, a patterned ceiling. It just instantly makes you look up and distracts from the square proportions.
3. Lighten up classic bedroom design with boho elements
All rooms in this house ooze personality, but the bedroom ideas are especially characterful. Although the bedroom design adheres to a classic layout, the choices of materials and accents – we really like the LED bedside lights and the rattan headboard – give the room a more individual, bohemian feel. This is how you make your bedroom look less suburban and more rockstar.
4. Keep attic spaces minimalist
Attic space can be a great asset, but it needs special treatment not to feel cramped. Painting the attic rooms all-white and keeping furnishings to a minimum creates a serene and airy feel, just right for alone time and meditation.
5. But go maximalist in the bathroom
This is one of those small bathroom ideas we just can't get enough of. It isn't necessary to keep it safe in a small bathroom – why not go whimsical and imaginative instead? The graphic, abstract tiling scheme has transformed an ordinary en suite into a pop-art masterpiece. You might as well end up writing a song in a bathroom as exciting as this one.
