Kate Moss is the human embodiment of effortless elegance, so it's no surprise that her home captures a simultaneously cool but relaxed energy. 

The model's living room celebrates maximalist vintage style in one of the chicest ways we've ever seen. Kate's space features draped vintage fabrics, wood built-ins filled to the brim with curiosities, and abundant warm and cozy lighting. 

As if this wasn't enough, Kate's living room is brought to new heights by her deep red walls. This is best exemplified in an Instagram video for her lifestyle brand, Cosmoss, where Kate is shown anointing herself in her favorite holistic scent blend. Though Christmas is long gone, we're still thinking about how she decorates with red, and we're not alone in our admiration for her unexpected hue.

Design experts also love Kate's living room design. Nicole Cullum, interior designer and color expert at Color Caravan, states: 'Few people have made a more iconic cultural mark than Kate Moss. It seems that whatever she touches becomes an instant cult classic, and her living spaces are no exception. The simple yet refined built-ins have a fluted detail for subtle interest and hold her treasured collections of books layered with artwork, candles, and natural stones for a library of curios effect.'

Nicole continues on the living room color, telling H&G that, 'The deep red walls play off of the warm wood shelves and patterned sofa that give the space a refined yet welcoming vintage feel. Saturated tones like crimson reds, deep forest greens, and rich browns paired with warm neutrals are set to be the go-to look of 2024.'

This color trend is not reserved for the celebrity fringes. According to research by home improvement company ToolStation, searches for 'red wall paint' were up 71% from the end of 2022 to 2023, accounting for the second largest increase (out of twelve) in their study on searches for popular paint colors. 

Furthermore, the color drenching trend, especially in bright shades like Kate's, will continue to be popular in 2024. Flora Hogg, interior designer and color consultant at Craig & Rose, states: 'Color drenching is set to be a key trend going into 2024, with bolder, brighter colors paving the way forward. The rich saturation of red paint imparts an immersive experience; the lively fiery red exudes a brightness that has the power to reignite your perspective and focus, injecting a burst of energy into your surroundings and daily experience.'

Though Kate's living room walls do not showcase traditional color drenching, the combination of red walls with the deep brown shelves and red accents creates a similar impact design-wise. Regardless of the colors in the room, the whole thing has a warm red glow.

To emulate Kate Moss's iconic style, look into red paint colors for this year.  Whether it's an entire red room or just a few red accents, you can't go wrong with the warming, vintage shade.
