This decadently beautiful room belongs to J. Crew’s iconic creative director Jenna Lyons. The mix of traditional pieces with mid-century modern gives this historic home the feeling of a Parisienne parlor merged with a Soho loft. And the punchy color scheme feels utterly fresh and current.
For the main living space in her family’s home, Lyons started with pale gray walls that play up the ornate mouldings in the 1890 Brooklyn brownstone. She then added an unexpected mix of bright yellow, slick leather, and a chandelier dripping with sparkling crystals. The result? A room that hums with style.
Our lesson for the day – don’t be afraid to mix time periods, layer textures, and finish a room with an over-the-top accessory.
