Decorating for one is hard enough, but decorating for yourself and a partner? In a totally new space with an open floor plan? Even less simple.
So when video producer and R29 fashion plate Annie Georgia Greenberg approached me
about designing her space, I knew I'd have my work cut out for me. She'd just moved from a tiny apartment in Chinatown
to a much more spacious abode in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn — and she'd brought along her boyfriend, Jack, and a chunk of mismatched furniture.
We immediately got to work figuring out the couple's inspirations. We made a pinboard where Annie and I could share reference images that were then used to inform the style of each piece we brought into the apartment.
The end result is a Brooklyn bungalow spin on California ranch living. Flashes of high-fashion femininity are balanced out by wood tones and earthy textures for an inviting space that makes use of Annie and Jack's favorite pieces of decor and art.
