sneak peek: simon and rebecca finger

i wanted to add one more home tour today- designed by jill dupre, who we just visited at home below. she is responsible for the interior design in this beautiful new orleans home, belonging to simon and rebecca finger. jill describes the project as a “team effort” with a young family that is “full of energy”- and the results are just beautiful. i’m pretty taken with that chalkboard in the kitchen but there’s something special in each room. be sure to click “read more” below for more images after the jump. thanks to jill for sharing!

    i love this space – it’s the best sneak peak in a while – it’s so understated, yet a mix of industrial and plush. This is very “my style” and i could just move in…. Feel like selling? Heh. Thank you for opening up your home to us all to drool over. xx
