Just like their monied, style-obsessed inhabitants, the homes in Gossip Girl are also dressed to kill. While this somewhat formal (and very Upper East Side) living room reflects socialite Lily van der Woodsen's art-collector tastes, daughter Serena's bedroom is more youthful and fresh, bursting with eye-catching patterns and shiny accents. "Her room shows a confident, eclectic mix of funky new and classic vintage items," the show's production designer, Loren Weeks, recently explained to InStyle.com. "I wanted it to express her character: effortlessly beautiful and self-assured."
Why not take a virtual walk-through on InStyle.com of the new Bass/van der Woodsen apartment, and steal some fashion inspiration of your own? Here are some ideas to get you started:
These gorgeous hand-embroidered pillows adorning custom-made Ralph Lauren spindle chairs are an interesting &
eyecatching way to introduce a touch of ethnic, tribal chic. A sophisticated way to steal the look for yourself is in Matthew Williamson's Hayward print dress.
The delish, skin-flattering tones and metallic accents in Serena's bedding quietly whisper of luxe and the good life. To channel your inner spoiled heiress, try this
Rough Roses Jewel hobo in a luscious, rich tan.
"Lily is an art collector and the works she collects are bold and colorful," notes Weeks. Be similarly Pop Art fabulous - and for a good cause! - sporting a graphic fuchsia, black and yellow
Rock the Vote tee.
Crisp, clean pops of white against bright blue...c'est tres, tres chic! As is the
Rebecca Minkoff The Bread & Wine bag
which is also pretty much guaranteed to endear you to the nearest fabulous Frenchman (or wealthy gossip guy) in search of a sexy new picnic partner.
Metallic accents are an easy way to add pizazz and edge to white. (Twisted Heart Love Rocks hoodie)
Whether perched on a Tucker Robbins wire footstool or showcasing your pedi, snakeskin is simply a can't-miss. (MERCCI natural snake stiletto.)
