The Sister Duo Cara and Poppy Delevingne Reveal Their New L.A. Home

The prestigious magazine Architectural Digest that reports on the latest trends on all-things architecture, home decor and design also creates a popular editorial of celebrity house designs. In its latest issue, the magazine followed the British models and socialite sissies Cara Delevingne and Poppy on a tour throughout their L.A. house.

 

The creativity and eccentricity that the sisters channel in real life is likewise present in the spirit of their home. Not that long ago, the sisters decided to trade the cloudy and gloomy English weather for a ray of fresh Californian sunshine and moved together to L.A.

Cara explained that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to get on board and finally set up a place together with her sister which however was at times a little challenging.

‘‘This was the chance to build our dream sister house. Miraculously, we’re still talking.’’

The house carries a very Art Deco vibe, especially Cara’s very own bedroom, combined with more funky California inspired features like for instance greenery and palm trees prints. Sort of a mixture between Miami Vice, Pretty in Pink and Playboy mansion set into the late ’50s.

At @poppydelevingne and @caradelevingne’s intoxicating Los Angeles retreat, the sisters’ divergent personal tastes come into high relief in the design of their individual bedroom suites. Cara’s bedroom, above, is a moody affair, reminiscent of a proper gentleman’s club, albeit one with serious sex appeal. Among its eccentricities is a sprawling bed, 11 feet wide, set on a mirrored platform—perfect for communal sleepovers and pajama parties. “The room feels like the Playboy Mansion with a touch of Art Deco and a David Hicks pattern thrown in for good measure,” Cara says of the heady vibe. “I wanted to reclaim the concept of the bachelor pad and make it my own.” See more of the home from our September issue cover story through the link in our profile.

Much like the sisters themselves, @poppydelevingne and @caradelevingne’s intoxicating California home offers an object lesson in idiosyncratic personal style leavened with sauciness and humor. “L.A. can be a lonely place. You really have to make an effort to reach out to people. Since one of us was always coming here for one reason or another, being with family just made sense,” Cara says of the unconventional sororal living situation. “This was the chance to build our dream sister house. Miraculously, we’re still talking,” Poppy adds. The setting for the sisters’ family frolic is a gracious but unpretentious 1950s dwelling, centrally located yet discreetly tucked away on a quiet street. “I wanted to create a true L.A. moment for them, with nods to California midcentury modern, Laurel Canyon bohemia, Beverly Hills swank, surfing culture, and a little Mexico,” says architect @nicologbini of L.A.–based Line Architecture who worked closely with the sisters to bring their fantasy to life.

Both Cara and Poppy are over the moon about how the house turned out and that is why they could not wait to show off their little Mexico, how they refer to the house, to everyone. Especially after getting asked to be featured in the renowned Architectural Digest the sisters did not hesitate a minute.
