how amazing is this townhouse?

I keep catching myself going back and looking at the pictures of Trey and Jenny Laird's Manhattan brownstone, making mental notes of "oh, I am so copying this...I am so copying that."

Therefore, I felt the obligation to share some pictures with those of you who haven't seen it yet.

Hold on to your socks though, Jeffrey Bilhuber knocked it out of the park.
The entrance hall is graced with Gracie wallpaper (totally on purpose) and leopard rug.

Ugh, I die.
I love the mix of colors and all of the different layers of fabric.
And I always support the use of one of my most favoritest fabrics, the tiger-stripe velvet from Brunschwig & Fils.
I absolutely adore this breakfast nook.
From the Andy Warhol print of Jackie O to the check wallpaper and curtains, everything is so quirky and works perfectly together.
Ok, I actually hate the barstools, but I adore the floors in this kitchen.
The library really gets me.
I want to lick those dark, high gloss walls and then take a nap ride on that tiger-stripe chair and ottoman.
Pretty outdoor space with mirror-backed trelliswork.
Very pure and calm master bedroom, and you know I'm a sucker for canopies.

Dressing room with plaster chandie and printed linen wall covering.

Their teenager daughter's room is one of my favorites.
I love the chartreuse walls and curtains with pom-pom trim.

For their son's room, I am so diggin' the preppy masculine feel.
It definitely screams "boy" without any eyeball murderous sports theme.

Couldn't you just move right in?
I love how the color was not afraid of color or texture. It really lets their personalities shine through and that's the ultimate goal, isn't it?

What do you think of it?

  2. Haha-you busted me! I wish I could say I was away on vacation...but no, just working like crazy, no fun.

    Isn't breakfast nook amazing-so bold and different!
