in 2006, emmy-nominated [former] broadcast journalist and television producer, candice waldron opened jumelle (french for “twin”) on williamsburg’s bustling bedford avenue. the shop showcases emerging and establised american and international designers. today rather than through fashion, she shows off her style in a great sneak peek. candice has found herself living in fort greene brooklyn, an area known as “brownstone brooklyn,” for almost nine years, describing the area, as seeped in history, and was once the location for stops along the underground railroad. click here for more, full-sized images.

[Above: I collect Mexican serapes and use them in a variety of ways, this one as a coverlet.The charcoal drawing by Issac is flanked by my collection of necklaces and crystals.]
Our bedroom. The bamboo nightstand was once my grandmother’s, so it is very dear to me. A mussel shell, claw and crystal necklace by Brooklyn designer Caitlin Mociun is hung above the bed. Our llama and deer collection also occupies the room.
I love sitting on the floor and have a collection of floor pillows – my favorites are from friends Anna and Tim Harrington of Deadly Squire. The bookshelves (in the distance) are made from left over materials from a shop project – the wood is snow fence wood from Wyoming.
Found sea fans from Mexico decorate the (non-working) fireplace.
My boyfriend and I live in a floor-thruapartment. This alcove is one of my favorite areas of our apartment- the bay windows afford much natural light and it’s a great place to work. I like gazing out at the trees, at our neighbors gardens and the simplicity and openness of this space.
Peace and quiet amidst the vivid fall foliage.
