in our continued look at some of the homes of professors at pratt, today we have a sneak peek into the home of graduate communications design chair jeff bellantoni. he and his wife, ceramist kim westad, along with their pit-mix maddy, live in this attached 3-story 1950s brick house located in the pelham bay/country club section of the bronx. they describe their residence as consisting of mostly modern furnishings, mixed with vintage and hand-crafted pieces, and of course the required low-end but functional IKEA. click here for more, full-sized images, and you can find all our fabulous sneak peeks right here. [thanks, jeff and kim!] -anne
