Today being Mother’s Day, how fitting to showcase the trust Miley Cyrus has in her mother and her decorating style.
It hasn’t even been a year since superstar Miley purchased this six-bedroom, seven-bathroom, 6,800-square-foot Southern California retreat, thanks to the musician’s ace interior design team: Tish Cyrus (also, Miley’s mom and manager of 16 years) and Tish’s design partner Mat Sanders.
According to AD,
“My mom’s best quality as a mom and as an interior designer is her understanding and non-judgment.
Anything I dream she will create into a reality, even if it isn’t her style. She designs for her kids—I am not the only one that uses my mom as an interior designer, all five of us do—the same way she nurtures us. She just wants what’s best for us, creating spaces that reflect us is what’s best for our mental health, our creativity, our songwriting.”
Yep, it must be true. Right down to a singular work of art in the bright, airy, and pristine white open-plan kitchen: a black-on-black square panel with FUCK spelled out in capital letters.
“I hate the F-word more than anything in the world, but I actually found that. I was like, If I know Miley, she’ll just love this so much. And I know the perfect place for it!”
“My biggest thing is that when you walk into someone’s house. I want you to know who lives there, what their personality is, what they love, and what they’re like. I know Miley so well, and we’re so close, so I was really able to do that.”
“My wheelhouse is very much boho chic. In my own house, I like everything neutral. But with Miley, it’s got to feel rock and roll. There’s a lot of color. Technicolor.”
“Miley, Mat, and myself are a great little team because they’re always, More is more is more. And I’m like, Well, not. . . always. Let’s pull one thing back.”
Miley’s style is Merry Maximalism.
“My mom believes that nothing is permanent, that there’s nothing that can’t be undone.
People make bold choices in their lives, and sometimes those gambles work and bring you good fortune, and sometimes they don’t. But it’s a risk she’s willing—and I’m willing—to take in our lifestyle, and that is reflected in the design.”
“Miley could have hired any designer that she wanted to.
But for her to be like, ‘Mom, I love what you do, and I really want you to do this house’ was awesome. Not only as her mom, but more [than] that, I didn’t ever go to school for design—and also I’m from Eastern Kentucky, so I think it’s really something. It made me feel so good.”
