Season 4 of the hit show has just hit Netflix, and if the last three are anything to go by, it’s going to be as explosive as ever. Despite living in the UK, with perhaps a little less sun, we can still steal styling tips from our friends in La-La land to turn our homes into a Selling Sunset-style success.
An elegant mix of pear white, elephant grey and pale wood is the combination most Beverley Hills homeowners seem to want. For a low-budget, Selling-Sunset style upgrade, simply give your walls a fresh lick of paint. If you have more to spend, re-doing the floor in pale wood will give your home a modern look that Christine Quinn would be proud of.
The huge properties in Selling Sunset look large enough without needing to trick the eye, but if you want to give your property a few more metres, mirrors are your new best friend.
Floor-to-ceiling mirrors can give the illusion of high ceilings if placed in the correct position. Tall and slender mirrors can create a multitude of optical illusions by mimicking a narrow hallway, which will make your room look even bigger.
Placing a big mirror in dining areas is a tip most interior designers swear by - a mirror near your dining table will also make your house look expensive and well-decorated at the same time.
Bring some Selling Sunset bling to your house with a lighting upgrade; large modern chandeliers or triple pendant lights work well in dining areas or above kitchen islands, whereas spotlighting works well in bedrooms.
If you’re lucky enough to have outdoor space, the right doors can make your home look seriously streamlined. Choose floor to ceiling if you can, to let as much light in as possible, and avoid thick door frames, as the more window there is, the larger and brighter your home will appear.
Nothing upgrades a bathroom like a standalone bathtub. They are a popular choice amongst LA homeowners who are looking for expanded design options and flexibility of placement in addition to making a strong style statement. There are many options available on the market, but we personally love a simple oval shape.
The hybrid design style is big news thanks to simple looks that work in harmony with our everyday lives, and LA houses are often decked-out the Japandi way.
Japandi is a new, calming fusion of Japanese and Scandi styles that brings out the best elements of each. While Japanese emphasis on minimalism makes it too sleek for some, Scandi‘s penchant for layers and cosiness – or creating ‘hygge’ – brings the balance. Think simple neutral colours, low-key artwork and minimal clutter, with the addition of textured cushions, throws and linen bedspreads.
Not an episode goes by without a shot of a roaring electric fire adding modern brilliance to each LA pad. There are a wide range of options to choose from, hence there’s something for every budget. You can install your electric fire into your wall, or for something less permanent, why not purchase a tabletop fireplace?
