Actor and producer Emma Roberts, most recently seen in “American Horror Story: Delicate,” has transformed her new Los Angeles home into a sanctuary where she feels both protected and joyful.

Roberts describes the home as a “womb,” providing a haven she had lacked while moving through ten houses by age 15.

Now, with a young son, she aimed to create a space that truly feels like theirs.

A Whimsical Acquisition

Roberts fell in love with the property after seeing it advertised as a rental on Instagram.

On a whim, she visited and ended up negotiating to buy it.

“It felt meant-to-be,” she recalls, especially for her and her three-year-old son, Rhodes.

She treasures a photo from their move-in day, standing in front of the home’s blue door on a sunny California day.

Bringing in the Experts

After several unsuccessful attempts at decorating on her own, Emma hired Louisa Pierce and Emily Ward from the AD100 firm Pierce & Ward.

They had previously collaborated on another residence for her.

Their initial task was to repaint the stark white walls a warm, creamy ivory to infuse the home with warmth, depth, and a sense of timelessness.

“We strive for homes to look like they’ve been around for 50 years,” says Pierce. “Newness is not our goal.”

Embracing the Past

Retaining many of Emma’s existing pieces, the designers gave new life to her belongings, such as reupholstering the sofa in the formal living room.

They also incorporated her art collection and made space for her dolls, books, and vintage magazines.

Emma Roberts admits, “Minimalism isn’t my forte.

Every house I’ve lived in feels a bit like a cabinet of curiosities.”

Ward notes that this approach prevents the home from feeling overly designed.

Belletrist Influence

Roberts co-founded the Belletrist book club in 2017 and Belletrist Productions in 2019 with her best friend Karah Preiss.

This literary passion is evident throughout her home.

Elegant Interiors

The entry hall sets the tone with a vintage Welsh spinning chair, a 1950s Italian light fixture, Hunter Douglas window shades, a vintage pine accent table, and an antique Persian rug from Nasir’s Oriental Rug Gallery.

In the family room, a Capiz Shell Globe light and a Bardot burl wood coffee table by RH take center stage.

The room also features a Timothy Oulton sofa in Honey Chenille from F & S Fabrics, Nickey Kehoe chairs, and Swedish stools.

Artworks by Henry Diltz, Maripol, and a limited-edition silkscreen of Joni Mitchell add personal touches to the space.

The living room features a Radius coffee table by Nickey Kehoe, flanked by Louisa club chairs by Pierce & Ward and a sofa upholstered in a Rose Tarlow Melrose House glazed linen.

Custom bamboo silk curtains frame the room.

Emma appreciates the sophistication of slatted cabinets in the living room, which allow her to display her mismatched paperbacks without the pressure of styling them.

Moreover, a cherished Julian Wasser portrait of Joan Didion, a gift from Emma’s manager, epitomizes the home’s blend of Hollywood literary glamour and timeless beauty.

Open shelves showcase her prized vintage editions, enhancing the cozy, literary ambiance.

Rhodes’s room features a bespoke bed in P/Kaufmann fabric, with a ceiling adorned in Mulberry Home’s Grand Flying Ducks wallpaper and Provenance Shades by Hunter Douglas, creating a cozy, whimsical space.

The primary bathroom, Emma Roberts’s “happy place,” is where she and Rhodes prepare for bed, and where she enjoys soaking with a book.

A repurposed bar cart holds her favorite candles, bath salts, and Rhodes’s bath toys.

The primary bathroom also boasts custom cabinetry with Pierce & Ward hardware, Red Onyx octagon floor tiles by Burke Decor, and a bespoke mirror.

In the kitchen, Emma enjoys making French toast for Rhodes.

Initially skeptical about the need for an island, she now finds it indispensable for cooking and seating.

The island, surprisingly sourced from Urban Outfitters, exemplifies the high-low design approach that defines the home.

The primary bedroom, defined by John Derian’s Rose Mosaic Forest fabric, features a bed and curtains in this signature print.

A Samarcande pendant light from Ebur, vintage artwork, and an antique Persian rug complete the room.

A Home with a Future

Pierce & Ward’s open-minded design philosophy has created rooms that blend historical inspiration with modern living.

The collaboration, though complete for now, leaves room for Emma Roberts and Rhodes to grow and evolve.
