Deschanel, who graces the February issue's cover, shares one of her favorite rooms with Domino, a study that she's transformed into a creative space. The musician and actress's home style seems perfectly in line with her professional life: a combination of smart, quirky, and absolutely unique selections, much in keeping with her choices for acting roles and music collaborators. And who could be more perfect for the February issue than Deschanel, whose Valentine's Day sweetheart — fiancé Ben Gibbard, front man for Death Cab For Cutie — recently proposed to her.
Make sure to grab a copy of Domino next week, when the new issue hits stands on Jan. 13. To tide you over until then, see and hear about how the room is used when you read more.
Zooey Deschanel transformed the study in her home into a soundproof studio, where she could write new music for her band with M. Ward, She and Him. I love the blue-upon-blue layering of fabric, paint, and pattern, and the pops of red lend an alertness and creative fire to the room. The blue-gingham piano bench reminds me of Dorothy's dress in the Wizard of Oz, which seems appropriate since Deschanel played an updated Dorothy in Tin Man. Everything about the room seems relaxed, inspirational, and feminine, from the two-toned piano to the soothing blue shades.
