sneak peek: kimberly cornelison & alfie ferreyra


Photographer Kimberly Cornelison and her husband Alfie Ferreyra call Minneapolis, Minnesota home when they’re not called off on cool photo shoot assignments for companies like Target and Crate & Barrel or various home and garden magazines. Their 750-sq. ft. home, shared with their Tibetan terrier Walter, is cozy and full of color and love. We hope you adore their home as much as we do! Check out the full post below, and you can find additional, full-sized images here. Thanks, Kimberly and Alfie!Anne

above: Entry hall was wallpapered in Farrow and Ball. Light fixture is from Artemide. Dresser is vintage.

Light fixture and table are from IKEA. Art is a collection of new and vintage . . . Center art and top center art by Jacqueline Schmidt of Screech Owl Designs.

The bentwood bench was a favorite antique that found a home in the dining area.

Living room area opposite the desk area . . . with built-in bookcases, radiator cover/seat, and library lights from Circa Lighting. The two chairs were purchased for $50 in a thrift store and were refinished and recovered with striped fabric. Rug is from West Elm.

Since our home is limited on space, a small office area shares the living room space. Library lights are from Circa Lighting. The bulletin board was created from a vintage picture frame with cork applied. Bookcases and a radiator cover/bench were built for more storage.

The kitchen area, despite its small size, functions just as well as any larger kitchen we have had. Friend and photo stylist David Anger created the framed pegboard to add convenient storage.

The upper kitchen cabinets were saved from the original apartment. The glass was covered in paint and was striped; inside the cabinets were given a fresh coat of paint in blue and hardware from Anthropologie. The lower cabinetry was rebuilt to accommodate the new sink and dishwasher. The countertops and backsplash are concrete stamped tiles from Imports from Marrakesh.

We choose a cheery yellow wallpaper from Farrow and Ball to fill the bedroom with warmth through the cold winters of Minnesota. Desk is West Elm. Bedding and fabric selection by David Anger.

    I’ve looked at the Farrow & Ball wallpaper samples online but can’t find one that looks like that color…wish they would give color.
