Yeah, I could live there is a D16 feature wherein I post pictures of homes I want to break into, kick out the inhabitants and move in. This week, I’m staying local! I’m going right down the road to my former Brooklyn neighboorhood, DUMBO, where interior stylist Martin Bourne and fashion stylist Leilin López live.
So…HOLY COLOR. That hot pink Wegner Teddy Bear chair is killing me. I want that chair in my life. I want to come home from work every day, climb into it with a cup of tea and a dog on each side of me, and sit there for hours.
Pale greens and blues aren’t typically where I tend to go color-wise, but I love it here. If everything were white (which is probably what I’d do), the space would still be gorgeous…but it wouldn’t feel as warm as it does here. It’s tough to make an open loft feel this homey. I love it.
Such a nice office area! Simple steel sawhorse brackets combined with regular old 2x4s are a great way to make huge worktops for very little money.
Hello there, giant dining table. I love long, shallow tables, at least ones that don’t feel formal. Like the desks above, this dining table—made by artist Jarrett Mellenbruch—appears to have been constructed from very basic materials. It’s a really lovely design. Combined with the Wegner and Børge Mogensen chairs, I’m in heaven.
