Recently taking on the role of director of the season two premiere of “Luke Cake,” the Queens, New York native hasn’t slowed down once since she was your favourite Charlie’s Angel. Whenever she isn’t on set or doing interviews, she’s spending serious QT with her son, Rockwell. When Liu realized how empty his playroom was, she knew she wanted to give it a major re-design — but she couldn’t do it alone. Lucy Liu has one of the most coveted celebrity homes, and her kids playroom is just perfect.
“I think that asking people for help is one of the key things to do as a parent and not be afraid to do that. You can’t do everything on your own, it’s impossible,” – Lucy Liu

In close collaboration with Nicole Fisher, from The Studio at One Kings Lane, Liu was able to do the seemingly impossible: build a play area that is safe and functional, without disrupting the stylish flow of her New York City apartment. She gave us an exclusive look at the chic play area.

“I had very little furniture in there and it was very sparse, so I wanted to have a cohesive plan where there could be play space and it was safe,” says Liu. “It was also important that it be presentable for adults as well as kids.”
Since the second floor of the apartment has an open plan — connecting the kitchen, living room, and dining room — it was a top priority to make the room a chic extension of the rest of the house. They started by choosing a colour scheme that wouldn’t stray too far from the fun but relaxed atmosphere of the surrounding rooms.
“[Nicole] made it special by toning down the colour and making it more monochromatic, so that the colour that is there pops and feels playful, friendly and warm. It feels more like a home than a wide open space without a name.”
