Reese Witherspoon has impeccable taste. The Draper James founder unquestionably has one of the world's best homes – you'll repeatedly catch her on social media showing off her bright and bold aesthetic if you want to peek inside her home. 

Whether she's showcasing beautiful blankets or declaring her love for the best wicker patio pieces, Witherspoon's impressive interiors are always on trend, with a recent Instagram post presenting precisely that. 

'Nothing better than quality mother-daughter time explaining TikTok, internet memes, and how the @reesesbookclub app works to my cute mom!' notes Witherspoon. And, while Reese and mother Betsy look chic as ever, it's her wallpaper-curtain combo that is stealing the show. 

Reese Witherspoon's wallpaper is nostalgic of mid-century fashion; the robin blue shade is soft and subtle and manifests clean lines that will remain timeless as the years pass. 

We're particularly swooning over the playful print the wallpaper showcases. It's impressive and continues to dazzle, thanks to its coordinating baby blue curtains. The matchy-matchy look gives this '60s-inspired retro look a modernized makeover. 

For those looking to style their space similarly, here's how:

1. Brighten walls without drawing too much attention
