Our house tour

I'd love to show you a few photos of our Manhattan apartment, if you'd like to see. I'd always found our place cozy, but we could never get the decor quite right. So this past winter, the amazing designer Jenny Komenda from Little Green Notebook gave our apartment a little makeover. She had beautiful, clever, and surprisingly inexpensive ideas. Want to take a peek?

Since our fireplace is non-working, Jenny filled it with cut wood, which I adore. (It felt like a Domino Magazine touch!) Our mantlepiece displays a photo I bought from Brooklyn photographer Anne Hall (from a series she sweetly describes as "horses and their girls"); two family photos; and Toby's first toy.
Alex loves mixing old-school cocktails, so we thought it would be fun to have a bar cart in the living room. Jenny scouted this amazing vintage brass cart on Craigslist. (The story behind it was sweet: The man who sold it to us revealed that his grandfather had given it to his grandmother as a tenth anniversary present.) Then, to make the room look bigger, Jenny found a giant mirror at a flea market and painted it a rich blue. (She's a genius at transforming things with paint.)
Our place barely has any closets (welcome to New York!), so we're always craving more storage space. Jenny found this vintage campaign-style dresser and painted it black to make it look brand new. She also found the 1960's brass lamp at a flea market. (The vintage brass deer is from etsy, and the Diptyque Paris candle is my favorite scent--Feu de Bois--which smells like a roaring fireplace.)
Since I work from home, I desperately needed a desk. So Jenny found this a-maz-ing campaign-style vintage desk, which is now my favorite piece in our whole apartment. She also scouted a vintage desk chair and painted it dusty blue. (Alex's black globe is from eBay. And I was lucky enough to buy the flying car photo from Brooklyn photographer Matt Porter a few years ago.)Our apartment's hardwood floors are elegant but not that cozy (especially with a new baby), so Jenny found us a graphic Pottery Barn rug on eBay. She sewed the blue linen curtains herself--insisting that long curtains would make the room look bigger (true). She then brightened up our ho-hum wooden coffee table by painting it a glossy black. (I bought the curved-backed wooden chair from Nightwood a few years ago, and our friend Rachel gave us the British pillow as a gift.)
Our prewar apartment has built-in bookcases (such a treat!), but they were looking a little blah, so Jenny cleverly painted the backs of each shelf a gorgeous dusty blue. She also hung our captain's mirror (which I had gotten a while back at Anthropologie) on the bookcase--a classic touch I never would have thought of. Alex had always wanted a sheepskin throw, so Jenny found a soft (and cheap) one at IKEA. Jenny also found the vintage office lamp and...wait for it...painted it blue. :)
Finally, here's a quick photo of our bedroom, which we try to keep sweet and simple, since Alex and I tend toward insomnia. The black-and-white photo shows Alex's family driving an old Triumph TR3 in California (they had stuffed a family of five into a two-seater; "Ahh, the 1960's," says Alex:), and I bought the seagull photograph from Portland fisherman/photographer Corey Arnold. The pendant lamp was $5 from IKEA, and my grandmother made the needlepoint pillow!

Thank you so much for turning our shabby apartment into a beautiful home, Jenny. And, readers, if your house is craving a makeover, I would recommend Jenny 1,000 times over. (FYI, she's moving to New York this summer!)

Next up: Toby's nursery :)

luke and pamela said...

looks so fabulous! but how does it work? she takes a look and finds items and you approve along the way? or you wait until she's finished?

ethanollie said...

We have the same problem with closet space, we don't have any closets! Yikes, what we have is a pantry like shelf in our bedroom and trying to keep all the clothes organized is a challenge.

I love the built in bookshelves. Seems you have an appreciation for vintage and yet classy items. So many beautiful pieces in your lovely apt. thanks for letting us take a peek.

Rachel Dangerfield said...

Your home is so cozy and beautiful. Thanks for the peak! I loved reading all your little passages. And all those flea market finds she painted blue? Amazing!

Ashley Lynn Fry said...

Beautiful! I love all the things she painted :)

Michelle said...

Jenny is amazing. So is your apartment, love the wood floors and gorgeous windows.

Anonymous said...

Awesome!! Thanks for sharing. I love taking a peek into other's homes.

How do you like living in NYC? You should write a post about your experience moving there and "moving up." I'm sure a lot of readers would be interested in your NYC story.

Can't wait to see Toby's nursery!

Alicia Clinton said...

so adorable. i love all the details. very inspiring :)

Anonymous said...

hi joanna-
looking at your bedroom pic (specifically the window), do you think that you may tend more heavily towards insomnia because your bedroom isn't dark enough at night?

now that i live in an apartment where we have blackout curtains (but not enough blackout if that makes sense...some light seeps through), i realize it makes a big difference. i sleep much better at our old apartment, even though i didn't think i slept well there!

can't tell if there are blinds. just wanted to throw it out there. sleeplessness can be a real pain.

your place looks so cohesive. thank you for sharing!

Rachael, Pistachio Press said...

Looks so comfy and lived it!

Mary said...

Very cool place. And very fun decorating tips. I am so in need of help in that area - our house is a continual work in progress, so I love getting new ideas!

Joanna Goddard said...

here's how it worked: jenny came to our place and we told her the general look we were going for and the specific pieces we wanted (desk, bar cart, etc.), and we gave her some inspiration photos from home magazines. then, over a couple months, she would send us emails with pieces she found -- like five desks, or five bar carts -- and we'd choose our favorite. she's suggest curtain fabrics, etc., and we'd discuss them. then, one day in january, she came and put it all together!

Joanna Goddard said...

haha, audrey, i KNOW! i'm dreading babyproofing :)

Ans said...

Love it, everything in the right place, clean, tidy and stylish!!

Joanna Goddard said...

anonymous, you have a good point. we wear sleep masks, but a black-out shade might be even better.

Diana Mieczan said...

That is truly a beautiful place, Joanna....Love the living room..and what a fantastic colour combination....We have a fireplace too and I always wanted a space for the wood...I might try something like that!!!!

Our bedroom is simple too but I think it is perfect...You need a relaxing, fresh space to sleep in...right?
We just got a huge B&W NY poster to your living room...I cant wait to put it up:)

Btw: I love Jenny....She has such a great style....and this place really feels like a perfect family home! Well done:)

Kisses

This is amazing, I love your apartment! I can't believe what spray paint can do, I keep on seeing all these pieces that have been completely transformed... Can't wait to see Toby's nursery!

Penny Dreadful said...

What a lovely apartment - it really does look so fresh and light and airy. It is clear that it isn't big, but it doesn't look cramped at all. Loads of clever solutions here, thanks for sharing

theRachel said...

Beautiful work! Do you think Jenny will come to Canada to work wonders on our space?

Deanna (Silly Goose Farm) said...

Haha Joanna, I can just see you and Alex sprawld diagonallly across the bed in your sleep masks. Can't wait to see the rest of the place (and glad I'm not the only one who's brave enough to prop a bed against a window)!

Ari- Audrey Onassis said...

Joanna, your home is so beautiful. It looks cozy and home-y!

wishful nals said...

This looks fantastic - comfy and chic! I need Jenny!

Heather said...

Love it! Thanks for sharing. I tried to do the small wood logs in the fireplace when I was in Brooklyn, but couldn't find anyone to cut the wood like that for me. Being in an apt (with no saw), I couldnt do it myself. Where did she get the right size wood?

Anna Walker said...

Oh my gosh! I love how the bookshelves were livened up! also the mirror with the rich blue paint! Your apartment looks so great!

Love your home. Jenny did a fabulous job.

I love house tours, and your place is gorgeous! I'm actually thinking about doing the same thing with the built-in bookcase in my den. :-)

Oh I love it!

rachel said...

wait for it.....it's beautiful. I love everything

Dancing Branflake said...

Amazing! I love how she added all these random accents that really "make" the room. And I love how you mention where each art comes from. Seriously, you value your artist friends and I'm sure they appreciate that.

Kate said...

gorgeous! as a photographer, i love how you've worked in a somewhat eclectic collection of large prints around the place. i'm also inspired by your fireplace and shelves. i'm looking at my vintage built-ins right now and trying to imagine a captain's mirror in the center of the shelves and logs in the fireplace... hmm...

G. said...

I'm a light sleeper too, and luckily we use blinds in Portugal - I would sleep with all that light from the window!

I love your style! It's like the perfect marriage of masculine and feminine that I'm always trying to achieve. Kudos!

Siri said...

Really love your home. I never think of light blue to decorate, but it looks wonderful in your home. Especially love the curtains!! It is definitely Domino-worthy (RIP!) Thanks for sharing.

AlliJean said...

I adore Jenny's Little Green Notebook blog AND your apartment looks amazing! You also seem talented in sourcing great photography :)

Sarah Bradley said...

Joanna- your home is fabulous! It seems like it's so you- great job!

alyson said...

beautiful Joanna! I'm swooning over that desk!

Jessica said...

You have a beautiful home! I love the lighting, it looks so homey.

amynicole said...

Oh my my my, thank you for sharing! My husband and I just moved into a one bedroom and I am in desperate need of some decorating help! How do we get a Jenny to Hawaii?! Your house looks amazing! I'm always crossing my fingers for a win a one of your giveaways, hoping something will help my decorating [or lack there of]. I can't wait to see the nursery!

If you don't mind me asking, did you buy your home or are you renting it? I'm always so surprised when landlords let their renters paint and do so many things to the home. Or maybe that is normal?

Anna said...

Beautiful! I'm a big fan of Jenny's work. She makes magic happen with a can of paint and a little sandpaper. Your home looks so cheery and cozy. Can't wait to see the nursery!

Young at Heart said...

oooh am full of awe and envey.....so miss my NY apartment, teeny-tiny but perfectly formed, loving that open-brickwork wall

Glenda said...

Thanks for sharing your space!Love it! Can't wait to see Toby's nursery!

Jill said...

I think my favorite is the drinks cart, but I had the same thought as Audrey - Toby will make quick work of all those shiny bottles if he's anything like my 11 month old who is right this second trying to rip apart my husband's vintage Tintin comics!

carina said...

It looks so beautiful Joanna - I wish it were mine:-) I know exactly what you mean about liking your home, but still it's not right - that is exactly how I feel. I love being at home, but still wish my apartment could get a makeover. But she probably doesn't go to Copenhagen, does she?:-)

Can't wait to see the nursery.

Carina

Just Jane said...

So incredibly charming! I love it, seems comfortable yet stylish, thanks for sharing.

Siubhan said...

My goodness, how beautiful! I love your built-in bookshelves (I have dreams of a book-wall with movable stepladders) and your blue linen curtains especially. So perfectly cool for summer and brightening for winter!

rachel thurston said...

I love your home. Inspiring me to use a designer to help spruce up our place. Thanks for sharing all your personal touches. xo.

michelle said...

Love it, great style and tons of personal touches. I'm inspired to start purchasing photography prints. Way to go Jenny and Jo!

Kayla Poole said...

Why am I not surprised that your home is brimming with charm and personality. Truly, a lovely space. Bravo to both you and Jenny!

Mary said...

Joanna,
Where did you get the two wall lamps about the bed? I'm looking for some just like that...

Thanks!
Mary

Torrie said...

Thank you for letting us take a virtual tour of your home. I love the Little Green Notebook blog, and Jenny of course- and both her flea market/e-bay/etc. purchases + fabulous paint jobs truly serve as a reminder that you really benefit from NOT limiting yourself on where you shop, and what YOU can do to transform an item. When I worked full time, I'd go straight to Pottery Barn, pick out my chosen item, and that was that. This process is so much for rewarding, creative, and cost-effective.

BTW- I'm not the 'jealous blogger type' but I will admit: I'm slightly envious of your built-in book shelves:).

Tim Capaldi said...

So many cost effective ideas that make the place look amazing.

Camille said...

Joanna, thank you for sharing your apartment with us. I like how you mixed the new and the old, and that everything has its own perfect place. All those touches of blue give the livingroom such a nice air! I might bring that touch into my own apartment...

TheSensesFive said...

Oh it looks amazing! How wonderful to have your apartment all decorated and homey for the arrival of Toby. Now that's what I call nesting.

Melissa Blake said...

BTW, Joanna, where did you find that adorable car for the mantle? I'd love to get one for my office!

Thanks! xoxo

suzanjill said...

Joanna - Love your place! Just a quick question - the rug in your living room - does it shed a lot? I have a rug in my infant's room that sheds way too much - always tons of little fibers coming off so needless to say I want a new one and I'm seriously LOVING the one you have :)

thanks!
jill

Dee said...

Beautiful home! I really love the bright pops of color scattered throughout; it really adds a cheerful element to the decor.

Mary Elizabeth Liberty said...

I love it, thanks for sharing your space. It's also great to hear how you transformed your own stuff with paint or rearranging...

Angela said...

It's beautiful Joanna - can't wait to see the nursery.
Jenny is very talented. I read her Little Green Notebook almost as often as "Cup of Jo!"

Joanna Goddard said...

heather, i'm not sure about the wood! jenny is a genius at finding things. :)

Joanna Goddard said...

hahaha, deanna...busted :)

Joanna Goddard said...

thanks for all these very sweet comments!!!!! all props go straight to jenny. she is amazing.

Kristina said...

Just beautiful! I am going to steal your idea for the fireplace - we have 2 nonworking ones in our apt so this will spruce them up a bit.

What color is on the walls in the bedroom?

Thanks for posting these - so much inspiration!

Joanna Goddard said...

amynicole -- we rent our place. landlords in manhattan generally are OK with your painting the walls, as long as you paint the walls back to white before you move out. and jill, the rug actually does shed quite a bit; we end up vacuuming it about once a week (and picking up little pieces of fluff between vaccums:)

Joanna Goddard said...

oh, good news! for those of you who'd like to work with jenny but live in hawaii or copenhagen, etc etc -- she actually does consultations over phone/email, so you could still work with her if you want! :)

I love the chair with the British pillow. She did a fabulous job!

Heidi said...

Thank you, Joanna. I've always been curious. Can't wait for the nursery. I loved hearing your voice on the giggle video too by the way. You sound just like I imagined! I love visiting you every day! :)

Through the Sea Glass said...

I ADORE the living room :) So love that you LOVE vintage pieces..I have several in storage in Washington...CAn't wait to put them all in our new place in Cali in 4 months!!! Ah, I bet you just love being home :)

Chris said...

Amazing home you've got there Joanna! I love that flying car print over your desk! I was looking at Matt's sight and couldn't find any way to purchase one of his prints, does he only sell them during gallery showings?

Slices of Beauty... said...

Truly stunning work!
Love the Brit pillow...

Lexie, Little Boat said...

Wow! Your place does look so cozy and inviting! How do you find and decide on a designer! I secretly wish I was a designer but can't pull it off for the life of me! :)

Annie said...

I LOVE your taste. Jenny did such a great job.. I especially love the wood in the fireplace idea. Fun post!

Sundari said...

What a gorgeous place to call home! I hope you're not renting and will have to give this gorgeous place up!

escapade said...

The place looks fantastic Joanna!

Jenny's done a really fantastic job tying it all together, love the little blue accents throughout(!) and it still feels so personal and not too 'decorated'.

Would love to know also (if you happen to know) the name of the Pottery Barn rug in your living room.

Rachel said...

Oh Joanna!

I completely loved the before but it's looking really splendid now. It would appear to be the perfect reflection of your little families personalities, styles and tastes, which is obv why it works so well. Toby is one lucky little dude. Gutted i can't be in on your live chat tonight. Sounds like such a jape. Oh, well, still beaming from my namedrop! Love to you all,

Thanks for sharing your apartment with us! I am moving to Brooklyn in 3 weeks and there's some great inspiration here.

We had that same Pottery Barn rug and it shed an INSANE amount, to the point where we had to ditch it. So sad because it was lovely to look at and cheap!

j marie said...

Your home is beautiful. Thanks for letting us in!

Anonymous said...

Love the apt. and agree with all the positive comments above! It looks so comfortable and "undecorated" yet totally pulled together -- perfect. I too would LOVE to know the name of the PB rug if you happen to know it.
Thanks! Diane

Choose a pattern for your agate earring.You can just grab random agate beads and have an entirely random pattern if you like, but most necklaces are made based on a predetermined pattern. Even if you use a random pattern, your agate pendant will look more professional and finished if you place small spacer or seed beads between the agate beads.One common and simple pattern is: three agate beads, one accent bead, three agate beads, repeated throughout the whole necklace, with small spacer beads between every agate and accent bead. Lampwork beads
