Home Tour: Lena Headey’s Charming Abode

Actress Lena Headey is known for playing a queen on Game of Thrones who lives a lavish lifestyle but in real life, she prefers things much more casual and understated. This is reflected in the home she recently finished renovating the San Fernando Valley. Built in the 1950s, Lena knew it was the place for her as soon as she stepped inside and hired a builder to help her bring her vision for the property to life.

The home now has an open-concept layout that is bright and airy. Lena made sure that many of the home’s original features were preserved while updating it with a mid-century modern aesthetic. There are rustic touches that give it a casual edge that is unique to Lena, who has a carefree and uninhibited vibe that is reflected in the home.

Metallic Wall Accents That Captivate

In recent years, metallic accents have become more and more prominent in design – not just in interior design, but in fashion, as well. While it remains to be seen whether the trend will live on, it draws on some timeless elements like gold and silver that have remained in style for centuries. It’s all in how you use metallics that determines how classic or trendy it is.

One of the boldest ways you can use metallic accents is by putting it on the wall. Metallic wallpaper has been in style for a while now and there are a myriad of colors and patterns to choose from. They work great on an accent wall, such as in an entryway, or in a small space such as a powder room. But you can also use them in grander ways if it suits your style, such as wrapping an entire dining room in it.

Here are 10 metallic wall accent ideas to show you the many ways this look bring glamour and beauty to a space:

10 Bathrooms That Embrace the Outdoors

The bathroom is one area in the home that should always feel like a retreat. It should be relaxing, peaceful, and help you start your day and unwind at the end of it. When I think of this kind of relaxation and rejuvanation, I often think of nature.

There are a lot of ways to incorporate nature into your bathroom, but one of the most effective is, of course, to open your bathroom right up to nature itself. A beautiful view always makes any area of a home more appealing. In the bathroom, it’s a great way to capture that spa-like vibe and help you shake off your stress.

The view doesn’t have to be of something particularly awe-inspiring or majestic, either. Even some flowers or greenery by a window can have a wonderful effect on the space and bring some more beauty to your bathroom.

Here are 10 inspiring bathrooms that embraced the outdoors:
