Inside Game Of Thrones’ Lena Headey’s Home

We take a sneak peak into Game of Thrones star Lena Headey’s home.

Cersei Lannister has conquered the San Fernando Valley and she’s ready to gather her troops and move on.

Lena Headey, who plays iron-fist ruler Cersei, has just listed her Sherman Oaks home for sale. And although Lena Headey is ready to pack up shop and move her family across the narrow seas to England, we are still obsessing over her home.

Unlike the dark and dreary interior of kings landing, Lena Headey’s home is a bohemian mish-mash of styles inspired by Ibiza and France.

Winter may be coming, but Lena Headey’s home is like being on constant vacation.

More impressively, is the fact that that the British actress designed most of the home herself. Rather than calling in professional designers, Lena worked alongside builders to give her home an open, laid-back vibe.

Let’s take a peek inside Lena Headey’s dreamy abode…

Bohemian elements such as a crochet hammock and mix and match parasols give this pool area is chic laid back edge. Bright tangerine sofas add to the retro vibes, whilst string lights add an edge of industrial glamour.

Although this pool may look like it belongs on the palm-fringed streets of Beverly Hills, Lena Headey’s home is in the surprisingly ‘average’ area of San Fernando Valley.

She told Dwell: “One of my oldest pals said it’s like the neighborhood in E.T”.

The large and roomy outdoor area is perfect for entertaining guests. The Moroccan-print rug and striped cushions give the area that undeniable ‘vacation’ vibe. As a matter of fact, the feeling of a constant vacation is exactly what Lena was aiming for.

“I just wanted the house to feel like I’m on holiday. There are no goblets, but there are some wine glasses”, she told Dwell.

After swimming in her pool, Lena can enjoy her very own outdoor shower surrounded by real succulents and planters. This outdoor area gets an A plus for being unique!

Lena’s bohemian-glam kitchen is pretty much the antithesis of King’s Landing. Stone walls have been swapped out for a funky ‘disco’ splash back, dreary candles have been replaced with glass pendant lights and that dreaded throne has been overthrown by some funky blue chairs.

The stunning blue and white floor tiles were first spotted by Lena when she was filming Game of Thrones in Ireland and was browsing on Pinterest. Her builder searched high and low and eventually ordered the tiles from Sweden.

Lena describes her style as ‘mix and match’ and has found the pieces from her home from a range of sources. Strangely enough, the herringbone flooring was actually sourced from a Kentucky tobacco farm.

The living room once again shows Lena’s impressive eclectic taste. Rustic bohemian elements are matched with a minimal palette to make something home-y and stylish at the same time.

The statement pendant light looks wonderful against the exposed beam roof. The abundance of square shapes in the rug, sofas and fireplace pulls the whole area together seamlessly.

Lena keeps the bedroom simple and clutter free. The statement bed and rug are enough to make a statement alone.

Furthermore, the white walls and fittings enhance the rooms size, rather than making it feel boxed in.

King’s Landing may have a spectacular dining hall, however, in real life, Lena likes to keep it cute and understated.

The starlet swaps regal hues for earthy woods and pops of greenery. Furthermore, she keeps the lines plain, simple and clean. She tells Dwell: “Visually, I like the simplicity of midcentury design. I like the lines of it more than the other styles you see here in L.A”.
