She has a Funny Face, and sometimes she enjoys a Roman Holiday or Breakfast at Tiffany’s. She is Audrey Hepburn and, believe it or not, her films have inspired interior designers and decorators for decades. Take a look at these Audrey inspired interior design ideas.
Breakfast At Tiffany’s
In Breakfast At Tiffany’s, her character, Holly Golightly, has an eclectic and playful sense of style- both in how she dresses and how she decorates her home. A good word to describe her style would be, ëmÈlange,í as itís a mixture of things DIYíed into furniture or things sheís collected.

Clawfoot Bathtub Sofa
Hollyís clawfoot bathtub sofa is, perhaps, one of the most inspirational pieces from the movie. Here, as in the movie, the sofa is artfully decorated with casually thrown-about pillows and blankets.

Holly’s apartment is filled with the ephemera of someone who just won’t settle down. She keeps a pile of vintage trunks in the hallway and uses a separate trunk as an accent

This look is easily duplicable and would look sophisticated anywhere you need an accent table. Here a couple of larger steam trunks are used as a nightstand.

In Charade, Hepburn’s character, Regina Lampert, spends most of the time running around the streets of Paris. Her apartment there is chic and understated with and beautifully decorated in soft shades of brown, blue and beige. On that note, floral, chintzy printed wallpaper, a mix of pattern, an understated color palette and an upholstered accent chair will help you get this look.

The black and white stripes of this hallway are reminiscent of her dress. Here, stripes are chic and unexpectedly modern. You can get the look with striped wallpaper or by painting black stripes on a white wall.

This room was was tailored to shine with its yellow, black and white furniture and wall covering. The black and white framed picture of her on the side table adds a classic vintage touch to this chic retro design.
When asked what about how she felt about herself as an icon, she said, ìI never think of myself as an iconÖI just do my thing.î Consider that your motto when looking at Audrey-inspired interiors. Her looks are casual and effortless, but they always manage to be chic.
