The owners, a young, adventurous couple in Brooklyn, hired Jessica Helgerson and her project manager, Chelsie Lee, to design them a modern, colourful and playful home. I'm a big fan of JHID, you can read an earlier post on them here.
The dining table is another JHID creation with two long slabs of walnut joined by a series of butterfly joints in various shades of turquoise. The chairs are also lacquered in a bright turquoise, and the bookshelf behind echoes the two-toned, diagonal paint effect used in the guest bedroom.
The kitchen is beautifully simple, sporting the most gorgeous custom made bar stools, and beyond, three perfect pendants.
I love the family room with it's giant built-in sectional sofas, which are covered in 18 vintage Peruvian blankets that the interior designers collected over several months. Some of the left over fabric was used to make the pillows in the master bedroom, which helps create a sense of continuity. Once again charcoal paint is used, following the line of the stairs, wrapping over the ceiling and down the other side.
The outdoor furniture repeats the turquoise from inside on the powder coated metal.
This view from the back garden showcases the stunning family home which is clean, modern, colourful, and also cosy and inviting.
