Lisa Vanderpump

I'm hooked on the Real Housewives of almost every city....There, I said it.  Beverly Hills being one of my favorites (only b/c of all the cities, I think they are the most realistic and likable personalities and  I know I sound ridiculous but stick with me I promise this is relevant). 

Lisa Vanderpump-Todd, the British bombshell, has some serious design taste as well as impeccable style that we all could take cue from.  Unlike alot of the other housewives on any of the seasons, this woman is non-stop and works hard to make her dollar with a great sense of humor to boot.  She has owned and designed 26 restaurants, several homes and yachts; so she has a well-seasoned palette when it comes to interiors.



Her latest redesign is her West Hollywood Restaurant, SUR, meaning "Sexy Unique Restaurant" has a dark, sensual, exotic vibe.  I love the eclectic mix with chandeliers, aged details and a garden feel.


Lisa's nickname is "Pinky" and you had better believe that she add its in every design.  But to balance it out add a bit of espresso or black to ground the ultra feminine look.

The draped tent style ceiling that gives a outdoor garden look.

Love all the vintage chandeliers!

What a statement these antique rustic doors make!





Mirror hanging in the patio with lush velvet? Yes Please!


Vanderpump's newest restaurant is the Villa Blanca, which has been named LA's "most romantic restaurant" has a light and relaxing mood to it, something that screams Lisa.  In addition to acting, being followed around by cameras, designing and owning restaurants, she also does flower arrangements, and the are STUNNING.



Antique column pillars add tons of character to the dining room.  Loving the white color palette!

How great is that candelabra on the bar????

Champagne is one of my favorite colors as well as drinks!




Dying over this bev cooler, looks like a great DIY for a rainy day :)

Which leads us right into Lisa's Palace--  She recently sold this 17,000sf home to downsize and it was nothing short of spectacular.





To balance the pink everywhere, the game room is dark and moody.


I have a hard time seeing a dude's getting ready in here, since it resembles a Barbie's playhouse, but how fem and girly would you feel in this bath?


 
Her acres of gorgeous topiary gardens make me want to die of jealousy, but I love that she has IKEA slip covered sofas on the veranda.  Down to earth right???? :) 


Remember me saying that she downsized?? Well here are the before pictures of her new pad which looks pretty great, but can't wait to see the afters!
