A home I have first come to discover in the glossy pages of the defunct Domino Magazine, the 1880’s townhouse of JCrew creative director Jenna Lyons is a vault of casually curated modern vintage design.
Mostly bare walls, except for some modern art and antlers in he dressing room, sprinkles of vintage elements and licks of black paint give personality to this victorian New York landmark.
“Though Jenna’s home has been photographed and featured in magazines over the past few years, it is nice getting to see some of the other highlights and angles. I am particularly intrigued by the 360-degree view of the living and dining room, as it offers details I have not seen elsewhere.” Live Creative Yourself
Decorated a few years ago by the (then happy couple) the hits of yellow found throughout the house are one of this year’s biggest trend.
Another strong statement this year is the mix of styles as found here in the sun bathed kitchen. A rustic French Country dining table sits in the kitchen made of a mix of black cabinets and open shelves. The Carrera marble contrasting and yet complementing the vignette.
Beauty is in the imperfection. Although a DIY project of upholstery is not to be advised, the 2 chairs in the reading nook are gorgeously rough and yet delicate. A dichotomy that is pleasing to the eye.
I have never had the luxury of a dressing room. A small walk-in at best, so I have pinned this photograph some time ago as a reminder of a future abode.
Bizoux et bon design!
