If proof were needed that the stars were just like us, Poppy Delevingne’s Instagram feed shows she’s been obsessing with interiors during lockdown with the best of them. And her stunning before and after photos reveal she’s got a real eye for interior design and gorgeous investment pieces.
The Riviera star has taken to social media to share some images of her enviable London home, which is located in Shepherd's Bush and boasts a beautiful vintage-glam aesthetic.
She brought in Joanna Plant to help with the interiors, and the design aesthetic was 'grown-up fun'.

She started off by sharing two fabulous before and after photos, writing: 'Since we’ve all be spending SO much time at home, I thought I’d start sharing some interiors from my own. Beginning with some BEFORE & AFTER shots (SWIPE). I’m no Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, but.... P.s if you don’t know who Laurence is I suggest you google changing rooms & substantial hair. P.p.s let me know what sort of interiors you’d like to see more of? Thoughts on a postcard...'

The first picture shows the upper floor, which is flooded with light and features a statement wall showcasing slogan art by Karl Holmqvist. The space leads out onto a sunny terrace featuring olive trees in fluted galvanised planters.
The second shows the wow-factor hallway makeover, which went from drab and dated to dazzling via Little Greene's French Grey paint (with a gloss on top), and two thoughtfully curated large accessories.
The first is a brass and glass star pendant light from Vaughan Designs, and the second a vintage 1960s starburst mirror. The elegant stair runner on fresh white steps adds a timeless yet on-trend element.
Things take a distinct LA-cool vibe in the next set of pictures Poppy shared, with a stunning, bold botanical wallpaper taking centre stage in the downstairs loo. She wrote: 'Because your feedback was so lovely on my last interiors post, I thought I’d share a few more while I'm on my Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen flex. Et voilà. Some BEFORE/AFTERS, AFTERS/BEFORE, you know what I mean... (1st slide; downstairs loo. 2nd slide; spare bedroom) P.s If you still don't know who Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen is, Google and big hair do's are still there waiting for you... 💚🌿'

One eagle-eyed follower spotted that the wallpaper is the very same that's used in the Beverly Hills Hotel in LA. The banana leaf-print wallpaper was designed by CW Stockwell back in 1942 and has become an iconic look since.
And singer Paloma Faith has a shared interest in it, commenting: 'I’ve got that wallpaper! Beverly Hills!'
The other picture shows Poppy's spare bedroom, which is also a fusion of colour and vintage vibes. There's botanical and butterfly art adorning the sky-blue walls, a gorgeous Marianna Kennedy lamp picking out the green in the prints, trendy brass side tables from Graham & Green, another pretty retro sunburst mirror, and a bohemian-style rattan lounge chair from Cox & Cox.
The home also features a cocooning pink master bedroom, and a master bathroom with botanical de Gournay wallpaper as a backdrop to a rose-pink freestanding tub,

Where does Poppy Delevingne live?
The Kingsman star and her husband, aviation CEO James Cook, split their time between their London townhouse and a country home in West Sussex. The model and actress also owns a home in LA with her sister Cara Delevingne. The sisters worked with architect Nicolò Bini, of LA–based Line Architecture, to bring the stunning home to life. An explosion of colour and (palm) print, the home gives 'nods to California midcentury modern, Laurel Canyon bohemia, Beverly Hills swank, surfing culture, and a little Mexico,' Nicolò told Architectural Digest.
