Tour Actress Shay Mitchell's Chic Hollywood Office
You might know actress Shay Mitchell for her leading role as Emily Fields in Pretty Little Liars. However, this actress-turned-businesswoman has lots more going on. Along with her acting roles and modeling career, she created a popular YouTube channel Shaycations, co-authored a new book, has a travel line coming out soon and has now added a production company, Amore & Vita, to her growing list of achievements.
Located on the Warner Bros. studio lot, Amore & Vita bares no shortage of Shay's laidback yet luxe personal style. The office space was designed by Decorist Elite Designer Stefani Stein, who was put to the task of making over Shay's office, the reception area and two other private offices from scratch. With Stein’s design expertise, furniture provided by Cost Plus World Market, and some vintage finds weaved throughout, every room feels chic, cohesive, and a little bit like Shay. Read on to find out how the design came together and prepare to swoon.
With a style that ranges from Old Hollywood glam to relaxed modern vibes, Shay wanted her office to be stylish, inspiring yet comfortable for her and her creative team. Stefani outfitted the office space with pieces that lent that same energy.
“I’m inspired by unique people,” Stefani tells ELLE Decor. “Just like the designs, people are individuals and I love getting to know them…the nuances of their taste and the emotion that they want the space to impart.” Stefani chose velvet upholstery, marble pieces, vintage accessories, gold side tables, and old school bar carts combined with a calming palette of neutrals and layered textures.
Mitchell’s personal office displayed more of the actress’s glamorous tastes. Luxe furnishings in pastel shades of pink, abstract wall art by Artfully Walls, and dreamy floral details like the custom peony garden wallpaper by August Abode embrace Shay's feminine side.
An array of mirrors, gold desk accessories, and a mini bar (stocked with a beautiful decanter and gilded glasses) take Mitchell’s office to next level luxe.
Still, the rest of the space gives off soothing, L.A. vibes with bright neutral tones, layered rugs, and elegant custom linen drapery by The Shade Store that lets in soft, filtered light.
With the office’s unique location on the Warner Bros. lot, Shay wanted to include elements of the building’s rich history. “I wanted to be able to use some of that history to inspire our offices,” Shay tells PEOPLE. In the main reception area, a Casablanca-inspired neon sign (a movie that was filmed on the WB lot) by Brite Lite Tribe sits above a modern organic reception desk made with a thick slab of wood and gold detailing.
Luxurious textures and the modern stone wallpaper by August Abode bring in some of that Old Hollywood glam, while neutral hues of beige and grey make the space relaxed and refined.
Shay's colleague's offices have personal touches, like carved wood side tables, leather chairs, and vintage décor, complementary materials and a neutral color palette are used consistently throughout the space.
The result: a cohesive, chic, and inspiring office that can transition from productive workspace to upscale happy hour with ease. We’d swap our office space with Amore & Vita anytime!
