Decor Should Reflect Your Personality

As it should, Nicole Richie's backyard [6] reflects her personality perfectly. Complete with a tepee and the copious use of string lights, her yard is relaxed and eclectic — just like her!

Black and White Doesn't Have to Be Boring

Who needs color when you can have a space like this? In line with her over-the-top design style, designer Kelly Wearstler's master bedroom [9] has a bold, playful feel. Black and white is anything but boring with graffiti art and textured surfaces.

Sleek Can Be Family Friendly

A kid-friendly space doesn't have to be kitschy. While Kourtney Kardashian's neutral, boho-chic living room [11] feels supersophisticated, it's fit for toddlers. A play kitchen is tucked behind one side of the couch, a tepee rests in the corner, and sharp edges aren't allowed.

Mixed Prints Are a Must

Whitney Port's California-cool home [14] is filled with stylish takeaways. Her bedroom does mixed prints [15] right. Choosing an array of patterns within the same color palette, she created a look that is well styled and interesting.

A Home Should Be Livable

No one wants to live in a museum! Take it from McDreamy himself, a house should be livable. Sure, Patrick Dempsey's Malibu estate [18] is filled with contemporary touches, but it's the practical additions like a chalkboard calendar that makes his house a home.

Modern Doesn't Mean Cold

Although fashion guru Louise Roe's LA home [20] is filled with several midcentury modern pieces, it is anything but cold. To soften up her sleek space, she turned to natural textures and personal knickknacks to create a warm, mellow space.
