Amy Sklar Design transforms 1923 star Marley Shelton’s bedroom into a whimsical, soothing sanctuary.
Marley Shelton and her precious pups adore their new digs.
When actress Marley Shelton decided to renovate the primary bedroom in her 1925 Los Angeles home, Amy Sklar of Amy Sklar Design (sklardesign.com) was a natural choice. “I had seen some of Amy’s work and was immediately drawn to its sophisticated playfulness,” she explains. “I also love her use of unexpected color and the way she brings a fresh, updated spin to traditional spaces.”
The art deco-inspired Buildlane bed is a stunning focal point.
The star of cult hit Yellowstone’s prequel series, 1923, was inspired by Gracie’s (graciestudio.com) Stone Grove wallpaper—a delicate floral pattern on a chic taupe background. Sklar notes, “It was very exciting to work off of the palette of the Gracie wallpaper because the handpainted colors offer so much depth and are just magical.” The designer sourced fine furnishings to highlight the walls, including a George Smith (georgesmith.com) chair and ottoman, armoire and nightstands from the Pasadena Antique Center (pasadenaantiquecenter.com) and a standout Papillon pendant by Elise Fouin for Forestier (elisefouin.com) for the ceiling.
Sklar crafted her design around the whimsical Gracie Stone Grove wallpaper.
Buildlane (buildlane.com) crafted a bespoke bed with an art deco-inspired shape that, along with the vintage nightstands, pays homage to the home’s history. Another highlight: The custom mohair rug from Aladdin (rugbank.com) was expertly color-matched after a rug Sklar was eyeing was snatched up by another customer. Says the designer, “Marley was so adventurous and was not afraid to take chances with color and pattern—that is always such a joy.”
Delicate details abound.
It’s safe to say Shelton is obsessed with the final result. “My husband and I have lived in our home for 24 years. During this time, we have made many failed attempts at cracking the aesthetic of our bedroom. Finally, with Amy’s expertise, we feel like we’ve got it right,” she boasts. “It captures the personality of our house as well as representing us as a couple.” We couldn’t agree more.
