Fashion Designer Jenni Kayne recently gave One Kings Lane a tour of her rustic Los Angeles home in celebration of her sale on their site. Her home’s relaxed and modern aesthetic is the perfect counterpoint to her eponymous fashion line. Here, we’re sharing 6 decorating ideas you can take from her stylish home.

1. Let Nature Help You Make An Impactful Entrance: Who needs expensive statement pieces? Kayne used native grasses and shrubs to create the eye-catching entry to her home.

2. Make Sure Your Artwork Fits Your Taste And Your Style: Kayne told One Kings Lane “One of the hardest parts of collecting art is finding things we love that also feel right in our house.” This bold blue piece certainly does the trick.

3. Find Furniture That Fits: Kayne and her husband traded up to a larger table that better fit the space when they moved into this home. Paired with the dramatically scaled photographs, the room feels full but not overly so.

4. Take An Individualized Approach To Trends: It may seem hard to find a home without a gallery wall these days, but Kayne’s use of small-scale prints and uniform frames keeps her wall true to her individual style.

5. Dark walls can be magical: Although the rest of Kayne’s house is bright and airy, she told One Kings Lane that she wanted the den to feel like the inside of a jewel box. The lacquered black wood walls add a sense of opulence to the home without making the room feel misplaced.

6. Embrace Whimsy: Kayne made sure to keep the playroom in her home kid-friendly and not too precious. “We have [the kids] help us so they have a hand in customizing the decor,” she told One Kings Lane.
