at home in harlem.

i am loving the june issue of elle decor UK, and most especially this very handsome brownstone home in harlem. it’s got a soft, scandinavian vibe, and quite monochromatic — pewter gray, creamy whites and a touch of black for contrast. it’s stunning, isn’t it? i love the dining room display created with vintage mirrors against white brick — such a lovely idea for reflecting dimmed mood lighting. for the whole beautiful harlem home tour, and a few other truly great spaces check out the latest issue of elle decor UK.

    I’m always intrigued by a gallery wall that doesn’t look messy. She seems to have nailed it.

    The soft grey tones are just perfect. I think it’s time I gave my home a little overhaul!

  17. This space is one of the most amazing ones I’ve seen lately! I can totally see how it would be Nina Persson’s home. If there was some more color, I would move in if I could!
