Lily Collins is another celeb who loves interior design

Lily Collins has recently become obsessed with interior design and as we all see so much of celebrity homes and great interior design, with her wealth of $25 million and style, no doubt the Emily in Paris star Lily Collins loves scrolling through interior design pages on Instagram.

The 33-year-old actress – who is the daughter of musician Phil Collins and his second wife, Jill Tavelman loves looking for interior design inspiration for her midcentury mansion, previously owned by Kristen Wiig.

She said recently “Looking at lamps and chairs because we’re redesigning a space right now. And then you start clicking on these amazing homes, and then you’re looking at tile colors and wall colors and rugs.

“It’s so funny because as a kid, I remember my mom always talking about interior design, and I was more interested in clothing and pop bands and stuff. And then she’s like, ‘One day you’re going to care more about interiors and antiques and designs.’ I was like, ‘No, I’m not.’ And now it’s literally what I want to spend my money on.”

Lily previously admitted to being inspired by the “boldness” of her ‘Emily in Paris’ character.

The brunette beauty plays Emily Cooper in the hit Netflix series, and Lily confessed to loving her character’s sense of style. She shared: “I think Emily’s boldness of choice and not being afraid of mixing things has rubbed off on me.”

Lily has always been passionate about fashion. However, starring in the show has made her more courageous than ever. She explained: “I always loved fashion growing up, so I’ve never been afraid of it, but I’ve just not always thought it would work on me. Throwing in those little influences here and there – Emily encourages me to do it more.”

While her former home was a gorgeous $17.4 million Hollywood Regency-style estate in Beverly Hills, the American actress has now purchased her new house from none other than fellow actress, Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig. Wiig purchased it for $4.1 million and sold it to Collins for a cool $5.4 million, and while it’s decidedly smaller than Collins’ old digs, it’s filled with midcentury charm and plenty of natural light.

Built by modernist father-son architects Kemper Nomland and Kemper Nomland Jr. for Arts & Architecture Magazine‘s ‘Case Study’ house program in 1947, the Pasadena home features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a detached guesthouse.
