Amber Heard has starred in countless blockbuster films from The Danish Girl to North Country. Though she is generally relatively private about her life in remote Yucca Valley, California, Homes & Gardens caught a rare glimpse into the Friday Night Lights actress's home. Needless to say, we were impressed.

An Instagram post shows that Amber Heard has a stylish, urban chic living room idea.

On her left, the entire wall is large glass windows with black steel beams between them. Behind Amber, the walls and floors are made of stylized concrete with a built-in ultra-modern fireplace. Beneath her feet, a boucle carpet offsets the hardness of the industrial-style space while a rattan chair and glass coffee table add a more mid-century feel. Designers love Amber's gray living room idea.

New York-based interior designer Artem Kropovinsky says, 'What I notice first about Amber's space is the high ceilings coupled with that raw concrete wall. It’s a celebration of spaciousness and urban edginess. You can't help but think of a loft in a bustling city center, where the old and new intersect harmoniously. Central to the narrative is the sleek wall. Holding both a modern TV and a minimalist fireplace, it tells a tale of contemporary luxury. It's where functionality meets artistry, creating a harmonious blend of warmth, entertainment, and sophisticated design.'

He continues, 'But it’s the vast floor-to-ceiling windows that truly amplify the story. They act as this ever-changing frame, showcasing nature’s own artwork. With them, the room doesn't just end at its walls. It extends outward, pulling in the greenery, the light, and the world outside.'

Homes & Gardens digital editor Jennifer Ebert adds, 'Increasing natural light is so essential in an industrial space.' She continues, 'It helps add warmth and an organic feel to spaces that might otherwise feel too cold. The wall-sized windows in Amber Heard's living room are key to making the look work.'

The experts say the cozy furnishings also help to add warmth and chicness to Amber's industrial decor. Interior designer Artem states: 'Your attention is instantly drawn to the gentle embrace of the off-white boucle rug. It's as if the room is giving you an invitation to kick off your shoes and relax. Amidst the more assertive design elements, this rug is a quiet whisper of coziness and warmth.'

Jennifer continues, 'I love the way the glass coffee table reflects the light from the window and keeps the space bright and airy.' She says, 'The natural materials of the rattan chair add warmth to the space, while the open concept design keeps the room from looking too dark.'

If Amber Heard's home is anything to go off of, urban chic will be one of the biggest living room trends of the upcoming year. Shop furniture similar to Amber's below to bring the warmth of her interiors to your own home and get ahead of the trend.
