Tour Dakota Johnson’s Mid Century-Modern LA Home

Updated: Dec 16, 2020

In early March, actress Dakota Johnson gave Architectural Digest readers a tour of her serene, mid-century modern home in Los Angeles. With the help of interior design firm Pierce & Ward, Johnson layered textiles, curated vintage pieces, and added many personal touches to create the perfect home. Abundant windows make the house airy and light-filled, but the wood, velvet, and earth-tones keep it cozy as well.


Below are some highlights from the tour.

Her backyard is a multi-level garden with lush greenery (including bamboo), vintage furniture, and a pool:

Johnson designed her living room with elements of both mid-century modern and art deco styles. She chose a neutral color palette and filled the space with vintage furniture, including the funky coffee table left behind by the home’s previous owner.

In the dining room, the glass table and streamlined chairs allow her art and crystal collections to be the center of attention.

Dakota Johnson's green kitchen quickly went viral when Architectural Digest published the tour, and it's easy to see why. The green cabinets, quirky ceramics, and patterned Persian rug make the small space lively and unique. And there are plenty of limes on display because she “loves limes!”

The wood-paneled walls from the living room and dining room carry over into Johnson’s office, where she holds meetings and reads scripts. Her favorite part about the room is the wall of bookshelves that hold awards, sentimental objects, and an extensive collection of books. A variety of unique photographs line the walls, and she loves the energy they bring to the room.

Johnson's bedroom features rich tones of yellow and plum and is filled with cozy patterns and textiles:

Dakota Johnson describes her home as a “tree house” and says she’ll never want to sell it. With its cozy, beautifully-crafted spaces, it’s easy to see why.
