Valued at £1.5 million, the American home exudes style and sophistication; we hope she incorporates her interior tastes into her new British home. Join us, as we journey through Meghan’s former home, unpacking her stylistic choices; it might inspire the interior design choices for your own home.
Meghan Markle’s LA Home Exterior
From the outside, Meghan’s former LA home looks like a dream to live in. The several tall windows are visually striking and it’s clear that the home receives a lot of natural light. A lot of care has been taken to maintain the exterior of the home and the paint job is pristine; dark blue exterior shutters give the home’s exterior a nautical vibe. The porch is the focal point of the home; a large front door greets us, bordered by two intricately carved pillars. The overhanging porch light is welcoming, giving the building’s exterior a touch of warmth. In the back garden, the dark grey stone floor gives off an aura of sophistication, tying into the color scheme of the windows.
Meghan Markle’s LA Home Kitchen
Though small in size, Meghan made full use of her former kitchen’s space; the full-sized fridge/freezer, cooker and hob fit seamlessly into the kitchen’s design. The basic color palette is effective in the kitchen, combining creamy beiges and soft browns. The slightly distressed hardwood wood flooring makes the kitchen seem welcoming, contrasting the white and silver shades in the room.

Meghan Markle’s LA Home Bedroom
The focus of this room is on space and light, helped by the three large windows. Once again, Meghan has kept the color palette muted, focusing on the quality of the flooring and the wooden furnishings. The bed has been placed in the center of the room, facing away from the surrounding windows. The bedroom floor is a similar style to the living room’s as the honey toned oak helps to warm up the dark browns and greys. One thing’s for sure, the next lucky owner will feel utterly relaxed and at peace in this bedroom.
Meghan Markle’s LA Home Bathroom
If you’re a fan of monochrome, this stylish bathroom will be your idea of heaven. A feast for the eyes, the contrasting wall and floor patterns work well together, looking sophisticated instead of tacky. The zig-zag feature wall grabs the eye and is a perfect addition to the room. The black and white floor tiles are very unique, instantly making the bathroom look more expensive. The dazzling golden detailing is a lovely finishing touch, adding another dimension to the bathroom’s aesthetic.
Meghan Markle’s LA Home Living Room
As the heart of the home, Meghan’s former living room has been intricately designed to look and feel sophisticated. This living room utilizes the open-plan design well and the large windows and natural lighting help the area feel more spacious. The striking fireplace and plush brown rug enable the living room to feel more intimate; you could imagine many late-night stories and conversations taking place on the parallel sofas. The natural hardwood flooring ties in nicely to the living room’s color scheme; the earthly hues give the room an aura of coziness without compromising style.
