"As an actor, my home is the one place I can really be myself, a peaceful, sacred space to reconnect," says Erin Doherty. Best known for playing Princess Anne in Netflix's award-winning drama about the British Royal family, The Crown, Doherty is famously wry. So it comes as no surprise that after stating this with a straight face in British design brand OKA's latest video campaign, Doherty dons headphones and starts dancing on the furniture.

The room? Part of Erin's "dream home," a fictional space conceived in a collaboration between the actor and the brand. Moody ocean-blue walls delineate the dining room, where a pillow-covered banquette is paired with woven pendant lights and mauve, velvet dining chairs. The color palette is carried through but swapped in a bright living room, with clay-pink walls and blue accents allover. It's all very soft and cozy-looking but also sophisticated, and one can very easily picture Doherty "Curled up on my sofa, candles lit, with a big bowl of pasta and a good film," as she tells OKA is her go-to night home alone.

Below are highlights from the rest of the interview, all the details from Doherty's dream home, and a few of our favorite OKA pieces to shop from the release.
