Pop star and songwriter Charli XCX certainly picked a humdinger of a home when she relocated to Los Angeles: a Tudor-inspired residence in Hollywoodland, the housing development that’s the reason why the Hollywood sign exists.

The English singer, who wrote and was featured in Icona Pop’s 2013 hit “I Love It,” purchased the property in 2015.

“I love the dark wood. I love that it’s a little creepy and weird. It just felt really right for me,” she tells Architectural Digest, which got a tour of the place. Charli decorated the house, which was built in 1927, herself, largely from antique stores and estate sales, in a style AD calls “charmingly mismatched.”

The vibrant palette and the eclectic art collection (which the performer is working to grow) give the otherwise monochrome house a youthful pizzazz.

“I just like the house to feel busy,” she tells AD. “I like that this house has just seen a lot of stories and fun things happen.”
