The exclusive interior of this house attractsattention to the abundance of amazing works of art Vanessa Brennan has managed to make the interior of his home truly exclusive. She is always in search of unusual solutions. The rare ability to see the beautiful in everyday things helped her in arranging the apartment. Although the home of Vanessa and not impressive in size, it has high functionality and fully reflects the inner world of the owner. “I wanted to create a modern multifunctional space,” says Vanessa. “A small apartment where two children live is simply obliged to be practical.” The heroine of our article tells the following: “In my house there are a lot of things dear to me, each of which contains a fragment of the story of my life. I like cooking, traveling and having fun, and the incarnation of these my passions has become the numerous items that can be found everywhere - vintage cutting boards, antique dishes, various trifles and souvenirs. In addition, my daughter's classmates are constantly gathering in the apartment. Therefore, it was important for me that the interior was not only beautiful, but also functional. ” In the apartment you can find a huge setinteresting things “I prefer it when nothing is laid on the floor, but in some cases it is appropriate to change my preferences. Since the area of ​​the room is small, carpets were necessary to mark the boundaries of the zones. Moroccan rug adds comfort to the living room, and a zebra skin lying next to it separates the kitchen. It is durable, and therefore rapid abrasion does not threaten it, even if it is used regularly. ” The sofa was used as an exhibition.sample in one of the stores in Brooklyn, so his purchase cost Brennan very inexpensively. At this corner are a large print from Ash NYC, located on the right, and a chalk drawing, which we see on the left. The latter is a gift from an architect from South Africa, with whom Vanessa worked. The composition is complemented by a small picture by Evan Hecox. The sculptures were acquired in the recently closedAsh NYC store in Williamsburg. Antique Moroccan carpet was purchased on the site of a major New York-based company Nazmiyal Collection. “A variety of paintings, geometric patterned rug, skin and sofa perfectly match each other, because they are designed in similar shades,” notes Brennan. “A few stand out against the general background of cushions, but mainly focuses on the walls, dazzling with exclusive works of art.” Vanessa admits that she has a real dependence on magazines and design books. “My weakness is painting. The bottom line is that with one standing picture you can completely transform the interior. And despite the fact that I have little money, I am always ready to spend money on canvas or collage. All these pieces of art gradually made up my personal collection. And, interestingly, each of them has its own story. ” “My main rule is to buy what I like. I am sure that all these beautiful things together form something amazing, and this wall is a confirmation of my rightness, ”Brennan reveals his secret. A papier-mache bird with a bright tuft is combined with abstract paintings, Russian cubist works and a print by Hugo Guinness. A picture of a nude woman VanessaI wrote it myself when she was 19 years old. In this part of the apartment is kept most of the entire library of Vanessa. Large ram book holders enliven monotonous stacks of books. And chests are used not only for storage, but also as tables. Chests and cases fit perfectly with eachIn the kitchen, Brennan changed nothing, except for the color of the walls: she repainted them in the same shade as in the living room. “This kitchen looks a bit more modern than I would like, but it is incredibly practical and comfortable. And nothing softens the utilitarian interior like a beautiful rug, Vanessa says. “Together with the picture, he makes the image unique.” Vanessa's passion for art is evident even in kitchen design. A set of three bar stools was purchased onAmazon for less than $ 25 Brennan wanted her bedroom to seem lighter and airy than other rooms, immersed in a dark purple palette. For the walls, the Halo shade from Benjamin Moore was chosen, which can be described as warm dirty white. An antique French mirror was purchased at an antique store in Williamsburg; bed covers, similar to what we see on the bed, used to be used in Moroccan weddings; English dresser Vanessa found on a sale in Connecticut. Bedroom design is very different from the rest.The interior of the apartment “Williamsburg is a district of restaurants, artists and musicians. Your neighbor on the landing may be an incredibly talented, creative person. It is very inspiring, and I was lucky that I live here, ”Brennan said. Grady, Vanessa's dog, feels great in such a creative environment.
