Laura Harrier loves her pink home, and she’s not going to apologize for it. The actress, who stars in Ryan Murphy’s new Netflix series “Hollywood,” has cultivated her perfect digs in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, and shows it off in Clever’s first-ever digital cover. But the four-bedroom property wasn’t exactly soft and welcoming when she purchased it. In fact, the house was painted black—both inside and out. 

Along with interior decorator Tiffany Howell, Harrier created a mood board that drew from various musical and film inspirations. 

“Please don’t take this out of context, but I wanted it to look like it was owned by a rich lady in the ’70s who just got divorced and is maybe gonna throw an orgy,” Harrier told Clever. “That sort of Studio 54 vibe, but at the same time make it grounded in reality.” 

After about twenty or so coats of white paint, they filled the house with curved lines, moody hues, and fluffy textures. In the living room, a vintage pink Marenco sofa by Arflex was hoisted onto a floating platform to be more conducive to Harrier’s 5’9 height. A vintage marble Gae Arlenti table is covered in art books, while a colorful piece by artist Jessalyn Brooks hangs overhead.

To soften the house’s hard angles, Howell transformed a blank wall into a curved built-in bookshelf that also serves as an immovable bar cart. It’s filled with everything from vintage albums belonging to Harrier’s parents to her collection of books. There’s also plenty of greenery (including a black olive tree named Veronica!) along with vintage pieces like a bentwood lamp by Mads Caprani and Italian chairs from ma+39

Two of the bedrooms were transformed into a movie room and a glam room, both of which she knows are quite luxurious. 

“I’ll start with saying I know how extra it is,” Harrier told Clever of her glam room. “At first I thought of making this room an office, but this was actually more practical.” Using vintage deadstock wallpaper from eBay and an Italian mirror, the space truly came to embody an old Hollywood vibe. And of course, it’s the perfect spot for getting glammed up with her beauty team to hit the red carpet. 

The master bedroom has blush walls, a bedside lamp made in Europe, and a piece by artist Anousha Payne hanging over her bed. A fuzzy settee sits by the window, while a burnt orange Entler Studio chandelier streams down from overhead. One of her favorite spots is the Moroccan-inspired hammam, featuring a tiled floor, steam room with zellige tiles and a eucalyptus bunch alongside. But there was one area of the home that Harrier didn’t change much: the kitchen. “I love to cook,” she says. “I can do a good pasta with homemade fresh pesto from my garden, and I did a good tomato soup the other night!”

The outdoor area is perfect for entertaining, which Harrier does plenty of. Alongside the swimming pool, woven details appear throughout, like with the pair of vintage rattan chairs set alongside lush greenery. It’s the perfect La-La Land abode for a rising starlet. But despite all the pinks she used, Harrier is proud of her space.

 “I did have a little freak-out toward the end of the project, or I was just like, Oh, my God, did I just build a whole pink house? Am I insane?” she says. “But now that I’m living in it, it feels much less pink pink.”
