How to Decorate with Hollywood Flair

Hollywood is awash in money and a quick flip through any high-end L.A design book will show you the kinds of audacious interior décor choices that kind of money can buy – but what they don’t tell you is that you don’t have to be rich to decorate like you’re famous.
