Peek Inside A "Living Jewelry Box"

It's not every day that an all pink project makes a design editor stop and think, Damn, that's a nice room. Such was the case when I came across designer Daun Curry's revamp of Finn Atelier, the showroom and studio of Candice Pool's popular, made-in-NYC jewelry line.

The space is intricately feminine, imagined as a "living jewelry box," in Curry's words — but there's nothing overtly precious about the showroom's smart mix of periods, styles, and statement pieces. "Women have more depth and complexity to their personalities than at any time before, and I wanted to reflect that," Curry explained.

From walls painted with a commercial-grade eyeshadow (yes, really) to a one-of-a-kind graffiti mural meant to evoke the gritty glamour of the surrounding neighborhood, the space is now a comprehensive reflection of its owner's tastes and #girlboss spirit. Ahead, we spoke with Curry to get the inside scoop on how the designer made this special project come to life.
