The image or Audrey Hepburn was always surrounded by a decor and interior that reflected her elegance and good taste.  If you're a fan of her classical and feminine style, good news!  We have some great tips to capture the essence of Audrey Hepburn and translate it into beautiful interior design.


Where to start?


The key to achieving a great "Audrey Hepburn style" is balance and contrast, so matching quirky and whimsical pieces with neutral furniture would definitely make things pop.  The idea is to combine eye-catching pieces such as animal print carpets with bold colors, using furniture with simple lines and minimalist aesthetic to give a modern twist.


Eye-catching palette


In terms of color, start with a light palette as a base, especially for small rooms to increase the brightness and spaciousness.  Use tones such as dusty blue, pale pink, white or beige in walls and furniture, keeping in mind that colorful details like cushions, a piece of furniture or art displays.  (You can never go wrong with a black and white picture of Audrey!)  Don't be afraid to use bold patterns like stripes or polka dots!  Mixing simple patterns with cheerful colors will make your decoration a true original design that shows your personality and taste.



Glam-it-up with thick fabrics and rich textiles

Coziness is key, so always incorporate heavy textiles like blankets or carpets to add a little warmth to any room. Think of light and fluffy textures for your bed or a stylish and elegant blanket to use while you watch Netflix as a real glamorous Hollywood star.
