This article was written for web from the magazine issue by the Dianna Agron Heaven webmiss, please credit if re-posting | The Glee star opens the doors of her stunning LA retreat to OK! With the final touches on Dianna Agron’s LA home now complete, it’s finally time to celebrate! The perfect blend of old Hollywood glamour and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the extensive renovations have been a labour of love for the 28-year-old Glee star, who is now happily making the most of her beautiful, tranquil surroundings. The food is on the table and the cocktails are on ice as she gathers her tight-knit circle of pals for a relaxed, informal dinner party to christen the pad. ‘You can’t work too hard without playing,’ she says.

‘I think that people vibe off your energy and I’m a pretty mellow person.’ Single after splitting with Aussie actor Thomas Cocquerel in early December after nine months together, the actress – who was previously linked to fellow thespians Alex Pettyfer and Adam Brody – is now focusing all her energy on work and spending time with her girlfriends. ‘You have to make time for everything,’ Dianna says of such occasions. ‘I do, definitely, for my friends’. One of her closest pals is celebrity chef Megan Mitchell – the brains behind many of today’s tantalising dinner party treats, such as the mixed mushroom and thyme flatbread and the refreshinf pomegranate and mint cocktails. ‘I wanted to do something light and refreshing, but also seasonal,’ Megan says. ‘The portions are just right, so everyone can let loose and relax, but so you’re not hammered by the second drink.’ With Glee now heading into its sixth and final season, Dianna has mastered the balance between work and play, returning to reprise her role as former Cheerios cheerleader Quinn Fabray. ‘I think “moving on” might be the wrong choice of words because [Glee] is always going to be a part of me,’ she says of the show ending. ‘So it’s not necessarily about a departure – it’s about what it’s imparted in me and what it’s given me.’

Next up, Dianna has a string of big-screen projects set for release, including romcom Tumbledown, with Jason Sudeikis and Joe Manganiello, and thriller A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island, with Maggie Driver, Ed Westwick and Maggie Q. She also recently had a starring role in Sam Smith’s music video for I’m Not the Only One, appearing alongside The Newsroom and The Mindy Project’s Chris Messina – who portrays her cheating husband. ‘I tweeted Sam a long time ago and told him how important it was that I discovered his music’, she explains. ‘He tweeted me back and we started messaging each other. Then the video happened, and we’ve become friends.’ Another good friend is, of course, Glee co-star Lea Michele. ‘Lea taught me how to stand up for myself more – like realising that I can’t be in 10 places at the same time,’ Dianna says. The pair even shared a flat in LA for a time. ‘Yeah we did a couple of years ago,’ Dianna says, adding, ‘but now I live with my dog, Freddie.’ Her house, which she purchased two years ago, has been a passion project for the star, who worked with designer Mat Sanders on the exterior of the home to create an oasis inspired by the overgrown enchantment of French gardens. ‘When Mat and I first started conspiring, I knew I wanted many plants and mirrors and for it to be disjointed from the interior,’ says the actress. ‘A lot of my home is comprised of found pieces from travelling or inspiration from those places.’ Such pieces include antique-style wicker chairs on either side of Dianna’s dinner table and the eye-catching indigo pillows and Japanese tie-dye throws brightening up her informal lounge area.

‘I knew I wanted the colour story to be blue,’ says the actress, who was raised with her younger brother, Jason, in San Antonio, Texas, and later in San Francisco in Northern California. ‘I wanted there to be many options: a place to lounge in the sun, a dining table for eating, painting, whatever we needed.’ It’s lucky that she has a spot to paint, seeing as the creative pursuit is one of Dianna’s favourite hobbies! ‘Painting, drawing – I’m really into photography, I’ve done it since high school. I’m writing a lot,’ she says of her ideal pastimes. There’s also one more, perhaps rather surprising, upcoming project to add to her to-do list – more renovations! ‘I know this sounds crazy, but now that the house is completely finished, I feel like starting over,’ she confesses. ‘I guess I have forgotten the slight pain of walking up to a drill… and I’m not opposed to living through it once again.’
