At Home with Chelsea and Greg

I love when someone’s home matches the identity of their business and personal style. Case in point, the home of my good friend Chelsea (Creative Director for Simon Miller) and her husband Gregoire (a leather artisan). Holding tightly to balance and order, their Japanese influenced space also feels cozy, particularly so when their dog Marcel comes to say hello!

A perfectly cool couple with perfectly smart taste makes perfect sense of course, and Gregoire is French (in case you couldn’t guess), so all of those eccentricities one loves about Parisian flats also creeps in. The more decorative details, Buly candles and cheeky humor. A perfect marriage to Chelsea’s modern, minimalist , decisively clean and uncluttered taste. Pops of primary colors mixed with sleek wood design. All of it is pretty much exactly how I’d like my home one day! Which is why I don’t mind so much when they invite me over ;)

A serious SoHo find amidst a million cookie-cutter apartments, their home stands out, not just for the copious trees throughout their space seen from the windows, inviting you in, but for achieving that almost impossible feat of design AND usability. All that, plus a few barks from Marcel.
