We may have spent the latter half of 2022 swooning over The White Lotus' set (especially the ornate Villa Tasca in Palermo), but Alexandra Daddario's current reality rivals her fictional world. 

The actress, best known for the hit show, resides in a stylish LA home that is already on our radar. We've already penned a love letter to her minimalist bedroom and blue Shaker kitchen – but now, Alexandra has offered a look inside the most glamorous room to date: her open-plan living room

Complete with fluted wall paneling, a statement green couch, and an abundance of geometric-printed cushions – Alexandra marries art-deco patterns with retro hues and materials to create a timeless space on the right side of daring. 

We may have already compared the space to the famous White Lotus Italian villa, but confess: this home looks equally Parisian – not least thanks to its quietly luxurious materials and timeless prints that tap into the 1920s European design aesthetic. It's a look that hasn't gone unnoticed by Etsy's trend expert, Dayna Isom Johnson. 

According to Dayna, the 'relaxed refinement of the Parisian apartment aesthetic is all about embracing the French "art de vivre", also known as the "art of living well", – something Alexandra masters in this divine space. 'Parisian interiors' is among the top design trends that Etsy predicts will influence how we decorate our home for the rest of 2023 – and we're using Alexandra's living room as the ultimate muse. 

'Focus on sourcing classic, quality materials, and charming antique and vintage finds – like gilded mirrors, marble accents, and oil paintings in ornate frames – paired with dark woods and light walls,' Dayna recommends.

Yes, after years of lighter-colored, Scandinavian-inspired woods ruling living room trends – dark wood has fallen back in favor – and of course, Alexandra is already ahead of this movement too. 'On Etsy, there has been a 337% increase in searches for walnut desks and accessories and a 28% increase in searches for brown seating or furniture,' Dayna adds.

The darkness of Alexandra's dining table also emphasizes the room's Art Deco style even further. The basis of this look involves creating contrasts – think rich blacks and brown woods with softer golds, creams, and sandy beiges –or, in the actress' case – creamy-colored paneling. 

Complete with the greens of the retro velvet sofa (and a houseplant, that's worth an honorable mention), Alexandra manages to pay homage to this year's biggest trends while staying timeless. And we want to buy our way in at the first opportunity. 

Here are three key picks to begin with.
