Звезда популярного сериала «Милые обманщицы» (Pretty Little Liars), актриса и модель Шей Митчелл (Shannon Ashley 'Shay' Mitchell) обновила интерьеры штаб-квартиры своей фирмы Amore & Vita Productions. Пространство включает просторную приемную, которую обставили как гостиную, и три отдельных уютных офиса. Дизайн-проект разработала декоратор Стефани Штайн (Stefani Stein).
«Моей задачей было создать светлое и комфортное для работы современное пространство, которое бы отражало личность Митчелл, — говорит Стефани. — Я остановилась на нейтральной женственной цветовой палитре с розовыми акцентами. И добавила желтый металл и бархат. Я бы сказала, что это старый-добрый голливудский глэм, но в более современном звучании».
I tried writing why that’s so a hundred (four) different ways, but each of them was bleaker than the last, and I can’t stand to lead with that. Sometimes, (all the time) the best course of action is to cut to the chase by saying only: Trust me; Stefani Stein is what we really need right now.
Sure, emergency support to thwart the best intentions of impending hurricanes would help, and increased political harmony, and much, much more kindness in general, but also: Stefani Stein.
Why? Because Stefani Stein creates pockets of interior beauty in a contrasting world. It’s probably her superpower (add to the list of things we need: more people exercising their superpowers). And today, we need some really beautiful rooms to scroll through.
As we do, let us take a moment to appreciate the power of a lone-but-no-less-potent color accent to spice up a space. To wonder why no one else until now has thought to park as big and black a vanity in a marble/white/brass bathroom as Stein did. To re-contextualize the mudroom as a sanctuary for both humans, and pets, and laundry. And to remember that it’s the white walls that bring out the Cobalt blue of a chair, and it’s the blue in the chair that emphasizes the cherry of the lips wallpaper, and it’s the redness of those lips that bring out the teal of the statues (this is fun, right? Like Interiors-Blog-I-Spy?). And it’s the overall composure of seemingly distinct elements and styles that merge together to create the pattern of a super stylish, slightly Californian, classic-but-modern design.
In conclusion: What we really need today is Stefani Stein and her superpower and yours and mine, and kindness (still), and sleep (I do, now).
And in the words of Youtube darling Grace Helbig, “Other than that, I don’t know!”
The Pretty Little Liars alum has signed on with Warner Brothers TV to develop new scripted series and reality shows as president of her production outfit, Amore & Vita. And her company’s HQ, appropriately located on the WB lot, is just as chic and inspiring as anyone who’s seen her L.A. home . . . or her backyard . . . or her guesthouse would expect.
Only a year after Freeform’s teen drama series Pretty Little Liars came to an end, actress Shay Mitchell, who played Emily in the show, has already set off on a new and exciting venture. Keeping things in the Warner Bros. family, Mitchell signed a deal with Warner Brothers TV to develop both scripted and non-scripted programming by means of her new production company, Amore & Vita. In addition to the WBTV deal, Mitchell signed off on a talent holding deal as an actress, and will be starring in the new Lifetime psychological thriller, You. At this point it’s safe to say that the Canadian-born actress is making considerable strides in her career as she starts a new chapter in her life.
With this new undertaking comes an equally thrilling project (to us design nerds, at least): the renovation of her Amore & Vita headquarters, which includes a full reception area and three private offices. The considerable square footage and blank-slate approach afforded a great starting point in the redesign, which was carried out by Decorist Elite DesignerStefani Stein. The goal: a “light and airy workspace that was totally unique,” blending Mitchell’s feminine sensibility with a modern edge. The furniture was provided by Cost Plus World Market, a global brand known for their trend-setting, high-quality pieces. The velvet glam accents and relaxing palette of neutrals and purples lent a chic and coordinated energy in every room.
