While Penny Lane was a fictional portrayal of boho chic at its best, Kate Hudson may well be its living embodiment. Beloved for her sunny spirit and casual yet controlled approach to dressing, Hudson has become a fashion icon for the contemporary woman. Let’s take a look at her signature style, along with how it translates to interior design.
1. Prints and Patterns
Boho babes like Kate Moss, Nicole Richie, and Sienna Miller join Hudson on the list of lux ladies who love a good print. From tie dye and floral to paisley and suzani, these style setters are known for unabashedly rocking patterns of all scale and size.
A 2011 tour of Hudson’s home with then-husband Chris Robinson reveals the star’s shine for bold bedding and upholstery in dark, dramatic hues.
2. Beads and Baubles
Bohemian babes love their baubles, including everything from whimsical bangles to shoulder-sweeping chandelier earrings. Beads and tassels? Yes, please!
Hudson wowed the crowd at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards in an unforgettable Alexander McQueen black and gold dress featuring an intricate metallic collar and gold-leaf embellishment.

To add a touch of beautiful Bohemianism to your dining room or special event, meanwhile, tassels are the perfect touch. The Velvet Sparkle Table Runner in Gold add shimmer and sparkle to any table, while the Chic Jacquard Table Runner in Sky Blue is both ethereal and elegant.
3. Mix and Match
The layered look is a popular choice for fashionable free spirits like Kate Hudson. And while learning to layer takes some practice, it also take a fearless commitment to one guiding principle: fashion is fun! In the spirit of Hudson’s whimsical wardrobe, don’t be afraid to mix in a variety of colors, shades and textures.
For example, our Hand Embroidered Rectangular Tablecloth in King Blue — a masterpiece of Dupioni satin and beaded hand embroidery — takes on unexpected and completely unique appeal when paired with patterned dinnerware or cut crystal glasses.
