The actress opened up her Hollywood Hills home on Bravo’s big budget design show Million Dollar Decorators, which airs Lohan’s episode on New Years Day Tuesday at 10 PM.
“I’ve kind of gone through phases,” the 26-year-old tells designer Kathryn Ireland about moving to the secluded spot in The Hills.
“I think I needed to move to Venice to be kind of out of West Hollywood. I want to be by the beach and the water,” she explains. “And it’s too far, first of all, and it wasn’t safe. My house was on the street. So, this is like a home that I want to make my own.”
Ireland, whose celebrity clients include Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and David Mamet, starts with a $250 million dollar budget to achieve a French cottage-style home for Lohan.
“I think this house is a fresh start for Lindsay,” Ireland, whose sons have a bit of a laugh over Lohan’s legal troubles, says. “I think my designs for her, I really have to bear that in mind: make her feel secure and also really ground her.”
