Jessie Randall, the creative director behind one of my absolute favorite shoe and handbag line’s, Loeffler Randall, shares a stunning bright white modern home in Park Slope, Brooklyn, with her husband, three kids and dog. They renovated from top to bottom and the results are brilliant; I had to share just a peek into this home tour.
“When we first saw the house, it was very dark with Pepto-Bismol pink shag carpeting in every room. I forbid my husband Brian from making an offer, but two days later he said, “We got the house!” He was so smart. It’s a nice neighborhood and a pretty block. The renovation was intense, though; I would never do it again!”
Either way, it worked …
Park Slope, becoming more and more popular with each passing year, certainly attracts the coolest of the cool. On living in Park Slope, Jessie explains: “It’s like Portlandia. The skits I can imagine happening here, with a lot of the same cast of characters. I was watching that show, and was like, that’s where I live.”
And Jessie just seems cool – not that that should surprise anyone at all – in that understated, too cool to realize she’s cool, making dorky even cooler, kind of way. “I do a lot of knitting, cross-stitching, sewing, quilting. I once got asked in an interview what I want to be when I grow up and I said, I want to be a grandmother.”
On arranging her books by color: “The knitting store Purl has everything organized by rainbow colors; it’s lovely. Then I was home for the day last year, and, on a whim, I said, I’m going to do it! It actually took kind of a long time.”
And her thoughts on wallpaper: “I prefer just a little; I wouldn’t want a whole room. I love the children’s clothing line, Bobo Choses, so I reached out to them. They designed this wallpaper and I had it printed. You can ask designers you love or people on etsy to make things custom for you. It’s not much more expensive than getting something off the rack and it’s so much more special.”
Both the colorful book displays and the unique, yet somehow subtle wallpaper, really pop against a bright white backdrop. (Ahh, the power of white paint!)
