Her addition of cheerful colours, put together with the help of friend and interior designer Bryan Wark, has made her Cape Cod-style home into the perfect haven for her to relax amid her multiple sclerosis flare-up. "Now the whole house has a sense of humor, and it gives me some vitality," the 49-year-old Legally Blonde actress told Architectural Digest in 2019, shortly after she was diagnosed with chronic condition MS in 2018.

Discussing her home makeover, which was inspired by her Michigan boarding school, Selma said: "Before, it was just a very traditional house, and it was perfectly fine. But I always felt the character was missing."

Selma lives with her son Arthur, 10, in a four-bedroom property in Fryman Canyon. Take a look at the glimpses she has shared inside...

Arthur has his own dedicated art space, complete with a table and a large circular red chair from Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher’s estate. The Cruel Intentions star told AD that Arthur loves to read in the chair, but she was also pictured cuddling up next to a candle, which had been placed on the marble coffee table next to large glass doors overlooking the garden.

The master bedroom is decorated with navy patterned wallpaper, which Selma said: "I guess they’re technically fans, but to me they’re spades. It’s my way of saying like, 'I’ve got this in spades. We’re cool.'"

The room is finished with white floors, cream shutters, a double bed with crisp white sheets and wooden side tables.
