It's no secret that supermodel-turned-actress Cara Delevingne has a big personality, but she also loves her downtime — #tbt to that time she slept through two interviews with Vogue's Plum Sykes. So when it came to decorating her new West London pad, she turned to family friend Tom Bartlett with the task of creating a home that captured both her party girl side and her homebody tendencies in one interior design scheme.
For its May issue, Architectural Digest got the exclusive tour of Delevingne's new digs, which do indeed capture her big personality. It's a classic Georgian house with high ceilings and big windows, but Bartlett managed to make the interior feel cozy and modern — despite having to do most of his consulting via FaceTime with the jetsetting Delevingne. There's a cozy drawing room, done up in jewel tones and featuring plenty of seating for all of Delevingne's friends; a dining room with mismatched chairs that feel like characters ("So even when you're by yourself, it's like the people are already around the table," Bartlett says); and a lush master bedroom with a custom canopy bed and a view of the garden, which will feature a "yoga shed."
The centerpiece of Delevingne's home is a bright and airy master bathroom, featuring a marble bathtub and a mural of clouds by artist Sarah Hocombe. "She really liked the idea of lying in a bath after coming back from traveling, and having it feel romantic and dreamy," Bartlett says. But the home also features plenty of quirky touches, too; there's the neon "FRIES" sign above the bar, a "Pimp My Ride"-inspired screening room and a guest bathroom which features two toilets side-by-side. ("I like a chat on the loo," Delevingne says by way of explanation.)
Ultimately, it's the perfect nest for someone like Delevingne who is constantly on-the-go. Check out more images of Delevingne's flat and read the full feature at Architectural Digest.
