today’s installation of sneak peek belongs to the beautiful home of artist lisa de john. lisa’s sense of color and pattern shine through from her work to her home and it was a thrill to see such a whimsical mural on her living room wall. here is a description in lisa’s own words:
“Here are shots of our living room and the dining room. The living room was really dead feeling when we first moved in and we slowly added color and teak furniture to brighten and warm it up. I live with my fiancee Scott Patt, who is also an artist and the Creative Director of footwear for Converse. He had the idea to do the vinyl squirrel by the fireplace. Most of his art work is large
scale and he thought one of his colorful creations would be really fun there. I love it! We found the Jens Quistgaard nesting tables, coffee table and credenza at Reside Modern in Cambridge. They have amazing new pieces every time we visit, it is by far my favorite place to shop for furniture. The sofa is from DWR and I made the curtains from a wool felt IKEA fabric, they make the most beautiful pattern of light when the sun shines through them. I also made the throw pillows for the sofa. The moose head was a gift but it came from Urban Outfitters. All of the art work in our home is made by us or our wonderful friends. From Reside we’ve also been collecting random dining chairs for our make shift dining/school table. We got the cherry Dot pendant light from Lampa and we love its warm glow at dinner time. The flower painting in the dining room will be available in a card set through teNeues very soon so I will keep you posted! The portrait of Scott is a photograph I took and then our friend Mark Smith created the art work. If you know anything about the clock, that would be wonderful. I think it might be a Nelson, but we aren’t sure, both the clock and the butterfly chairs were original from Scott’s grandparents. Oh! And the painting on the mantle is by AmyRuppel.
