Hildegard Haave’s home in Selbu, Norway showcases a handful of family heirlooms like this mahogany dresser from her grandparents. She explains that it used to live in their home office where she would play with her grandfather’s typewriter while he worked.
Image Above: Nasozi Kakembo shares how important it is to showcase images and reminders of her family and Ugandan heritage for the benefit of her son in their Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn brownstone tour. This wall-hanging comes from Nasozi’s family, purchased in Liberia by her mother in the 1970s, “although the design provenance is Ivory Coast.” It is an example of her deliberate decorative process to instill a global and empathetic worldview in her son through the objects she places in her home.
While Sarah reconfigured the space to make it work for the family while honoring its past, she and Sam worked in tandem to infuse the home with energizing colors and other eye-catching design elements. Take a spin through the whole tour to see how color and history interplay harmoniously to give the Arcade family the space they need in the neighborhood they love. —Kelli
Image above: Matthew and Lauren’s second bedroom in their Chicago, IL home was given purpose with a daybed built by Lauren’s father and Matthew. The bed is styled with pillows for a faux backrest to make the room versatile between an extra living space and a place for overnight guests.
This steamer trunk, belonging to Anne Sheldon-Duplaix, traveled back and forth with her grandparents between New York and Europe, holding all their possessions until it was passed to her parents’ home in Northern France, and then on to her. She used it to store a carefully curated fabric collection and her dreams of becoming a clothing seamstress. One day, Anne opened the trunk and began sewing clothes for her daughter, which led her to open a children’s clothing shop by constructing clothes from the fabric stored in the steamer trunk at her East Village, NYC home.
Pillows might be my favorite styling tool. They bring color, texture, pattern and comfort into a space. They’re less expensive than most accessories and furniture and can be easily swapped, recovered or stored to update a space for the season. Pillows aren’t just a way to decorate a couch — they can be used as extra seating on the floor, a backrest for a daybed or bench, or as extra cushion on a piece of un-upholstered furniture. We have 10 styling examples to show you how pillows add a soft, welcoming presence to any space, indoor and out. –Lauren
