simply color: jen altman

Jen Altman’s home is such a lovely mix of traditional and contemporary. A chandelier over an antique dining-room table that is surrounded by Emeco and Kartell Ghost chairs is something I would never think of, but wow, it really works! The photography around her house is breathtaking, and even these photos of Jen’s home are stunning and full of warmth and light. Be sure to check out the rest of her house in the original sneak peek. — Lauren

Déjà vu. Wish I could send you the picture of my screen with the first photograph in the foreground and what I see just past my screen in the background – the left hand end of my table with a Starck chair, long curtains, simply framed pictures, clean-lined dining chairs… a weird feeling, as if I were seeing almost double but not quite! Straaaange feeling :O


I especially like the black (?) chair in the second photo. Does anyone know it?


Ooh, I actually have this house tour bookmarked. Love everything about it!
