Nicole Richie’s Latest Design is Her Backyard Oasis

Nicole Richie Backyard
Justin Coit for Domaine Home

When Nicole Richie decided to update the backyard of the home in L.A.’s Laurel Canyon, she knew she wanted a space that was a reflection of her laid-back style.

“Our house is the one people come to, to hang,” Richie, 31, tells Domaine Home of the home  she shares with husband Joel Madden and their two kids.

“I like people to come to my house and feel like they can do whatever they want.”

The redesign began with picking the right colors – the House of Harlow 1960 designer settled on turquoise, yellow and black – and then chose a collection of vintage and modern industrial pieces and lots of lanterns to create a “relaxed and eclectic” feeling.

The result is an inviting space that doubles as a perfect spot for al fresco dinner parties or a playground for her daughter Harlow, 5, and son Sparrow, 3 – it even includes a hand-painted canvas teepee.

Just don’t use the B-word to describe it. Says Richie: “I hate the term bohemian.”

I’m not you. You may have strengths I don’t have. You may have a level of determination and unwillingness to give up that far surpasses mine. I may be basing my predictions on my past failures. You may be basing yours on your past successes. You may simply be better than me at turning dreams into reality.

Nearly all of what you point out happens to be supprisingly legitimate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. Your piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this specific issue goes. Nevertheless there is actually one particular issue I am not really too comfy with and while I try to reconcile that with the core idea of the point, let me see exactly what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Very well done.
