After splitting from Ryan Adams in 2016, “This Is Us” star Mandy Moore started over and planted roots in Pasadena, CA. She purchased a midcentury modern fixer-upper for a cool $2.65 million and got to work.
After a breakup, many women find themselves by embarking on a trip, taking up a new hobby, or doing something as simple as changing their hairstyle. Not Moore. The actress painstakingly reimagined every room—and the exterior—of her new home, infusing her signature style.
Coming up for some air after kicking the bid documents out the door for the @mandymooremm Residence. Check out @sarahshermansamuel ‘s blog coverage of our collaboration including the before photo horror show. This photo was taken in one of our favorite rooms and luckily one that the 90s renovation didn’t disrupt. Maybe it’s a day late, but It sure is nice to be surrounded by powerful women. #lessismooremm
Moore went for a minimalist look and hewed to the midcentury modern style. Everything from the bathrooms to the backyard exterior was touched by Farnham and Sherman Samuel, and the results are pretty stellar.
Our guest bathroom is the stuff of dreams so often times, I find myself using it just because I can’t stop marveling at the geometric brass inlay pattern that my genius friend and designer @sarahshermansamuel engineered. She and @emilyfarnhamarchitecture took my wish of creating a peaceful, inviting space for guests and brought it to the next level (again). Swipe though the see the before pics .

The women turned a dark and drab living space into a light and airy haven. (Click right on the Instagram gallery to see the grim before pics.)
Here are a few more before and after pics of our living room. I never expected to spend so much time in this particular room but we have and do: listening to records, reading, writing some tunes on the piano, etc… There’s always a cat curled up in one of my fav blue velvet chairs- this room is easily the chillest space in our house. Although we didn’t change the footprint of this room, the terrazzo floors, blush curtains and generous furniture layout set the tone for the whole house.
What was once a drab and boring dining room has been transformed into a space that’s nearly too pretty to defile with food. Moore admits she has yet to use the space for a meal.
Soooo we have yet to eat an actual meal in our dining room BUT I think we’re just waiting to host a dinner party or Thanksgiving or something (we’ve hosted friends outside a few times because it’s summer and why not enjoy the weather). However, I’m still excited about the airy elegance that @sarahshermansamuel brought to this room: the color palette, the funky chandelier, the @allmodern burl table of my dreams, the oversized artwork by @loumora and sculptural vases, etc…. They all work together to highlight the original brickwork and planters from 1950 (when the house was built) and the copper fireplace hood. I can’t vouch for my cooking but atleast we’ll have a nice setting for future holidays, right??

The kitchen was the one room in the house that wasn’t dated and drab when Moore purchased the home, but that didn’t stop her. She had the room mostly gutted and tailored to fit her personal style as well.
Next up on the house tour is our kitchen. @sarahshermansamuel, @emilyfarnhamarchitecture and I worked hard to take away the terrible 80’s curved breakfast nook (the same thing we did in the master bath), while keeping the square footage it gave us. I knew I wanted the kitchen to be open and light, complete with open shelving and plenty of prep space and room to hang/chat around the island. Plus there’s a great view out the back sliding door that we wanted to take full advantage of. It’s the room that we end up spending the most time in and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it came together. Peep the before and after photos here and on @sarahshermansamuel’s blog.

As for Moore’s bedroom, it’s simply the stuff of dreams.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be mirroring my friend and designer extraordinaire, @sarahshermansamuel and sharing more details and pics of our home/what it took to pull it all together. Today is the master bedroom… but be sure to head over to Sarah’s blog for all of the before and after action. Link in bio.

The interior spaces weren’t the only ones to benefit from an incredible overhaul. Farnham went to work to bring together Moore’s backyard, which is now the perfect place for dining, entertaining, and relaxing.
The outdoor kitchen and dining pergola at @mandymooremm ‘s home overlooks the sparking pool and mountain views beyond. Special shoutout out to Craig Phillips, our favorite engineer, for making this happen with only 4 columns.

Moore and the women who brought this house back to life deserve all the accolades. The place they’ve created is something special.
