This is an actual celebrity story told by the interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel. Even though working with celebrities can be a daunting task, that wasn’t the case with her client Mandy Moore. The first moment they met to discuss the brief about her Pasadena home she didn’t even have many requirements. Then, Moore just wanted the space to be bright, open, and to incorporate color. Luckily, Samuel has been given the creative freedom she needed to have to renovate the home, and she turned it into a midcentury-modern oasis for the actress and singer. And given the photos, Samuel did nail the brief.
The first images of the newly decorated home broke in Architectural Digest. We have all been itching to see the detailed shots of one room in particular, and that’s the relaxed, yet refined living room. These close-up photos have been released in All Modern, and we can all witness the masterpiece that Sherman Samuel did. And do you want to know the best part? The carefully curated room has all the hero pieces of furniture in the space, so the great thing is that they are from the retailer.
According to Sherman Samuel, she did had challenging aspects of the projects. You want to know more? Yes, we know you do. She shared that working with the original specs of the 1950 home that were designed by midcentury modernist Harold B. Zook. First, that part was that challenge because the living room was way trickier, with it’s long and skinny look, where every wall was floor-to-ceiling glass. After that Sherman Samuel explains how she wanted to disrupt the view as little as possible while creating as easy flow to the whole space.
Now, take a look inside the stunning bright and light-drenched room decorated in midcentury modern decor. Fabulous, right?
