Maggie Holladay knows a thing or two about sourcing timeless vintage furniture. As the owner of social media’s favorite interior decor account, Claude Home, the bicoastal collector has amassed a cult following that hangs on her every post, waiting to get their hands on her newest find. So when it comes to her own space, it makes sense that it would be expertly curated. Holladay gives BAZAAR.com an exclusive tour of her California home, and it’s as effortlessly chic as one would expect.
Starting with the color palette, the San Diego native describes it as being virtually nonexistent. “It’s a play on a lot of blacks, grays, and whites,” she explains. “I like to keep my space very minimal and calming, so that’s what I aim for when decorating.” This less-is-more approach is similar to the one Holladay uses when curating her feed and shop and has earned her a top spot as the style set’s go-to destination for home decor. Extending her easygoing but intentional aesthetic to her West Coast home was inevitable.
Standouts from the tour include notable pieces like Cassina’s coveted Utrecht chair, as well as a pair of Jean-Michel Frank chairs that are believed to be from 1939, of which Holladay says are the focal point of the space. “I designed my apartment, a little bit, around these chairs, as they were one of the first items I brought in. They’re extremely comfortable, and the bone and shape on them are absolutely stunning. It’s a chair I want to keep forever,” she says. Further, her bedroom hosts a sizable daybed by Mies van der Rohe that opens up the already vast space, offering Holladay an extra place to sleep, lounge, or work.
A testimony to the curator’s artful eye, her apartment also includes a wooden bench that she found on Facebook Marketplace, which doubles as a coffee table, and a Yugoslavian birthing chair from eBay. It also features an assortment of pieces from the contemporary artists carried at Claude Home, such as sculptor Chandler McLellan, and Evamarie Pappas and Gary Oglander.
“I introduce a lot of customers to the minimalistic lifestyle by the majority of the pieces that I have,” Holladay suggests on the key to successfully pulling off a more pared-back approach. “Not everything needs to be neutrals. I like to add pops of color with books or by bringing small accessories into the space.”
