Shay Mitchell’s House Has a Rose Gold Nursery, Floral Wallpaper, and a (Literal) Dream Kitchen
It’s not all that often that a property goes from your Pinterest board to reality, but that’s just what happened to “Pretty Little Liars” and “You” alum Shay Mitchell. The actress, who now appears in Hulu’s “Dollface,” added a photo of a kitchen in a stylish 1920s Los Angeles home to her Pinterest board back in her twenties. Now 32, Mitchell has found herself living in that same property with her partner Matte Babel and their little girl, Atlas.

“I remember that the agent sent me a link, and I realized the kitchen was the same that I had saved from years before,” Mitchell told Architectural Digest. “Once I walked inside, I fell in love.”
Mitchell, who has lived in the property for four years, recruited friend/designer Chad Wood to cultivate her peaceful escape. The Spanish-inspired house welcomes guests with a staircase of iron railings and tile flooring, and is filled with a Mediterranean/Moroccan vibe. A classic, monochromatic kitchen with white tile-wrapped walls has a large black center island with marble countertops, and stainless steel fixtures around the room. There’s also a cozy breakfast nook, and French doors that lead out to a leafy terrace.
Step down from the kitchen into the entertainment room, where there’s a giant bookshelf wall, color-coordinated in classic millennial fashion. A rich green velvet couch was custom made, and it serves as Mitchell’s favorite spot to cuddle up in front of the TV. A small bar area with floral wallpaper connects to the entertainment room, and it’s a speakeasy-inspired space filled with fun cocktail items, a record player, and vintage finds.
A white living room has an earthy feel thanks to exposed beams, a white cozy fireplace, and original stained glass windows. A suspended orb lantern Mitchell purchased in Morocco draws the eye upward. “It’s the eye-catching moment in the room,” she says. “A chandelier would have been really expected. I wanted something different.” Various reclaimed pieces, ranging from a tree stump table to plenty of vintage finds create a true eclectic vibe.
One of the most unique spaces in Mitchell’s house is her daughter’s cozy, rose-colored room. Above the unique brass crib is a gallery wall of family photos, showing everything from Mitchell’s world travels to a 3D sonogram of baby Atlas in the womb.
“It’s always wonderful to have lovely people but also to have places that you’ve been to,” said Mitchell. “Especially, with her name being Atlas, it goes hand in hand with all these places that she’s been already without her knowing.”
