It’s a truth universally acknowledged that moving is stressful, even if you’re a big time celeb like Mandy Moore. The This Is Us star shared a sneak peek into the process of setting up her new place via Instagram.
According to PEOPLE, the renovation has been going on for a year, and Thursday was finally the first day of furniture install. Mandy has been working with designer (and bonafide #WCW) Sarah Sherman Samuel on the space and documenting the process along the way with hashtag #mandymooresmidcenturymaison.
Here’s a look at the outside of the mid-century home, complete with pool and fire pit:
Though inside, there are more exciting changes afoot, including lots of glam meets mid-century choices.
Take a look at the dining room, complete with exposed brick and a mod pendant:
Opposite is this lounge space, with a copper fireplace hood separating the areas.
…Which continues to a white brick fireplace that opens up into the kitchen:
Mandy’s got bowls for days, joking that there might be a few too many. “How many bowls are too many bowls?” she says in the Insta Story. “Have we gotten there yet? Have we reached the bowl threshold?” They’re from Year & Day, by the way. She even shows off her “world’s coolest toilet brush” on her huge kitchen island. Sure, it’s an $88 object you stick in the toilet, but it is pretty chic.
Onto the bedrooms! Just look at that oversized velvet panel headboard and pendant-instead-of-table-lamp move in the master. We’re also dying, Mandy.
And this guest room has plenty of style, too—though with a more neutral color palette (so far) and plenty of texture from the prints, inlay side tables, swing arm sconces, and cane headboard.
One bathroom features plenty of marble and brass:
And another goes with herringbone subway tile, a deeply grained stone, and bronze fixtures (plus Aesop soap).
There was even some time to lay down on the job:
Before thanking the team to whom she’s “forever indebted”. And while it’s not even fully done yet, she’s already hinting at the next project—after “a few years to enjoy this place”, of course.
