Girls Night Out: Nicole’s Guide to Entertaining Alfresco

Domaine Home, a website dedicated to shopping, style and inspiration for the home, get an inside look into an intimate dinner party hosted by Nicole Richie for her close friends.

One must be careful not to use the b-word around Nicole Richie. “I hate the term bohemian,” the House of Harlow 1960 designer, author, and actress confesses. So when it came to updating the backyard of the Laurel Canyon home she shares with her husband, Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden and their two children (son Sparrow, 3, and daughter, Harlow, 5), Richie plotted a course toward all things “relaxed and eclectic.” The direction resulted in a vintage-meets-industrial makeover of the Moroccan-tinged outdoor area, which she unveiled at a late-summer dinner party staged for friends including stylist Simone Harouche, Pressed Juicery co-founder Hedi Gores, and Domaine co-founder Katherine Power. And while the environs may have been new, the act of entertaining—complete with a Middle Eastern menu created by chef Jeffrey Nimer and a classic rock soundtrack (The Animals, Led Zeppelin, and Janis Joplin)—is business as usual at Richie HQ: “Our house is the one people come to, to hang,” she says.

I’ve added photos from this to the gallery. However, make sure you head over to Domaine Home to read the full article with more information and pictures on how Nicole created and perfected the intimate dinner party in her own back garden. Seeing the items Nicole bought may inspire your own dinner party.
