Inside Total Bellas Star Brie Bella's 'Boho and Cozy' Living Room: 'We Nailed It!'
Brie Bella's Laid-Back Living Room
Brie Bella’s home is a total dream! The Total Bellas star, 34, is showing off the San Diego home that she shares with husband Daniel Bryan (whose real name is Bryan Danielson) and their 11-month-old daughter, Birdie. The space is a Cali-cool mix of cozy furnishings, minimalist decor and rustic touches that create a relaxing aesthetic for the professional wrestlers to enjoy.
Cozy Gathering Spot
The E! star worked alongside designer Julia Wheeler of Gunn + Swain Interiors to outfit the rental home with cozy furnishings comfortable for baby Birdie, but also still stylish enough for the Birdiebee co-founder. “Our house is very midcentury modern, which was a first for me because our Phoenix home was very farmhouse,” she tells PEOPLE. “I started to look into that vibe and how I can make midcentury feel boho and cozy. I feel like we nailed it!”
Room to Play
A recessed fireplace, vaulted ceiling and lots of natural light warm up this formerly stark space. The open floor plan allows for the young family to seamlessly move between their living and dining areas — and makes it easier for Brie to keep an eye on her little one! “Birdie is about to walk!” she says. “She loves to crawl everywhere, push all the furniture around and play outside all day long. She loves to smash all her toys! We call her Birdie ‘The Smasher’ Danielson.”
“Since they’ll be moving at some point, they were looking for furniture that they could move to their next location easily,” says designer Wheeler. A midnight blue sofa from Campaign is an easy solution for the couple, as they can quickly disassemble the piece when it’s time to relocate.
Their pup, Winston, finds himself right at home in this corner nook, complete with a fiddle-leaf fig tree, a light wood bench with open storage and a round mirror that reflects all the natural light.
A wall of multi-tonal gray tile serves as a statement wall behind the media center. A midcentury-style TV cabinet, woven basket and, yes, a crystal, ensure the focal point doesn’t veer too cold.
Wishbone-style chairs sit atop a delicate crochet rug in the dining area, which speak to Brie’s boho-chic style. Although her husband, 36, will undoubtedly reap the benefits of his wife’s decorating prowess, she admits he doesn’t have a heavy hand in the decision making. “Bryan doesn’t ever have an opinion about decorating,” she tells PEOPLE. Luckily she adds, “He always loves everything I do in the house.”
