At Home with Haylie Duff

When she isn’t traveling the country for Haylie’s America,  the star gets some downtime at her cozy Los Angeles home.

Haylie's Christmas

When you watch Haylie Duff on Cooking Channel, you can see that her personal style is casual, fun and feminine. It turns out her decorating style is just the same — especially when she gets ready for the holidays. Rather than using typical reds and greens, she complements her home’s everyday look with a collection of modern pink, white and metallic ornaments, pink tassel garland and white Christmas stockings.

Dining Room

This room holds one of Haylie’s most-treasured possessions: her cabinet of curiosities. “She is my be-all, end-all cabinet,” Haylie says of the glass-door bookcase (yes, she considers it a girl). Inside, Haylie keeps old and new finds like silverware, platters and artificial plants that she uses in photos for her blog, The Real Girl’s Kitchen.

Reading Nook

Haylie keeps a Restoration Hardware wingback chair outside the nursery, where she reads to Ryan at bedtime. While the house was under construction, one of her first purchases was the metallic paint–speckled cowhide rug — but she kept it a secret from Matt. “I hid it in our closet,” she says, laughing. “I knew if I were to debut it [before the space was finished], he would be like ‘Oh, no way.’ ” The little wooden chair was Haylie’s dad’s when he was a baby, and now Ryan uses it.

Front Door

Haylie makes holiday decorating look effortless — possibly because she recently completed a much more demanding design project: a whole house renovation. “We were shooting The Real Girl’s Kitchen and doing construction, and I was nesting on a really crazy level,” she says. Haylie and a friend painted her front door in Valspar’s cheery La Fonda Fiesta.
