Lele Sadoughi lives in a Dallas home with next-level design she proudly refers to as maximal. “Color is everything,” says the accessories designer. “A mood booster and an inspiration to my creativity.” This upbeat, more-is-more POV extends to her taste in art, as well.


Can you tell us a bit about your new house in Dallas and the inspiration behind it?

The Lele Sadoughi aesthetic is maximal and colorful. I have designed my house in the same way. I have a dozen rooms with colorful wallpaper and a peach kitchen. 

Many of the furnishings were found in estate sales and vintage dealers, and I love mid-century and post-modern pieces. Lucite, velvet, malachite, and brass are found throughout the house.   


What do you love the most about the Light Up series created by Carla Sutera Sardo?

I adore Carla Sutera Salso’s pieces because they are fantastical. Beautiful, colorful gowns glisten in water with disco balls. What is more joyful than getting dressed up and wearing your pieces? 

I make accessories that are meant to be enjoyed, and I think Carla’s images show the joy of dressing up. Plus, they fit perfectly above my green and pink Italian lucite benches

Color is everything. I painted my office lavender, so I feel happy and serene at the same time. Color is a mood booster and has been an inspiration to my creativity.

What is your advice for someone who wants to include more creativity in their home?

You need to try to experiment. Make a mood board, and you will find you pick the same things over and over. This will give you the confidence to try the style. 

Paint and a nice piece of art are good ways to make a statement without a huge commitment. 

Can you tell us about any exciting upcoming projects you have in the works?

At Lele Sadoughi, we have over 15 different accessories, from jewels, headbands, hand bands, sunglasses, hats, belts, and more. 

This year, we introduced wallpaper, and I hope to as more interior designs to our categories. Accessorizing your home is just as important as accessorizing yourself.
