She’s played a fairytale princess on Once Upon a Time and a teenager with supernatural powers in the Hallmark channel’s Good Witch, but actress Bailee Madison needed some real life magic (and a little help from Wayfair) to transform her run-of-the-mill garage into a fabulous hangout spot.
“After months of filming on location or a long day of travel it’s the best feeling to be able to look forward to walking into my own space where I get to be me!” says Madison, 17. To create the chic and cozy space she’s dubbed her “lady cave,” the actress worked with Wayfair and designer Ryan Saghian, who brought in layers of fresh neutrals and some glam accents worthy of a budding starlet.
Like any teen, Madison says her personal aesthetic is forever evolving, and her Los Angeles home has been an ideal proving ground. “My style has matured over the last few years but my family has always encouraged me to embrace my creativity and what makes me feel most like myself,” she says.
“She is far beyond her years, and so is her aesthetic,” says Saghian. “She wanted a glamorous, feminine, and playful space.” He selected timeless staples like a cream-colored sofa with nailhead trim, an Eames-style molded-plastic desk chair and an ultramodern console in white and clear acrylic. The more playful pieces — a purple over-dyed rug, fur-covered director’s chair and a metallic lip-print poster — can be switched up as her tastes change.
Already a Hollywood vet (she also appeared in Brothers with Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal, and Just Go With It with Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler), Madison knows the power of a great makeover sequence . . . and a Hollywood ending.
“I love taking a moment to appreciate the transformation of a blank canvas and how Ryan turned it into a beautiful inviting space,” she says. “My favorite part of the garage remodel is the memories that are about to be made!”
