We’ve already been lucky enough to feature the home of the talented Jen Altman twice (here and here). But this summer she packed up the family and said farewell to Omaha, Nebraska, to call Park Slope, Brooklyn, home. I must admit, I’m in complete awe that Jen was able put this place together in only four weeks (she can’t function if she doesn’t feel settled, which is completely understandable). Enjoy the full peek below, and don’t miss the wall of love! You can check out Jen’s work here, her blog here and her latest project, the Polaroid Portrait, here. Thanks again, Jen! — Anne
Image above: Because we kept all of the walls white, I wanted to do something a bit more dramatic in the small entry way — we covered the door to the water heater with a velvet curtain and painted the recessed space where the entry table sits with chalkboard paint.
I loved the idea of keeping the artwork on this opposite wall black and white — I it think it adds to the drama of the small space. The table was an antique find and is paired with navy replicas and Starck ghost chairs. The fixture is from Ikea and I dressed it up with left-over crystals from a chandelier in our last home.

I also created a “wall of love” in this hallway, just outside the girls’ room. It features floor-to-ceiling polaroids of everyone they love; when they start missing family and friends, they go visit the wall of love.
Our bedroom has one piece of art — a 40 x 60 print of a statue of Athena that I photographed while visiting the Louvre this summer. Without room to house my jewelry cabinet, the jewels have lent themselves to accessorizing our room on their off hours. The oversized light fixture is another Ikea find.
