For Amina Mucciolo, pink is a neutral and home is a place to express one’s creativity in a literal rainbow of decor. Step inside Cloudland, her whimsical downtown apartment, for peek at an interior designed to pastel perfection.
When it comes to making bold interior design choices, Joybird Ambassador Amina Mucciolo is a seasoned pro. As the founder of Studio Mucci & Tassel Fairy – a design firm and online shop specializing in whimsical handmade products – it’s not surprising that her home would follow the same bright and fanciful aesthetic of her creative work. But Amina takes it to a whole new level by creating a space that doesn’t just embrace creative styling, it celebrates it.
Not deterred by conventional wisdom or typical best practices, Amina’s space blends the full color spectrum and combines a wide assortment of decor that’s new, vintage, and handmade. The result is an interior unlike any other which she shares with her husband, Sal, and two dogs. The mood inside her living room is unabashedly chipper, with bright details and cool pastels merging to create an atmosphere that’s at once calming and peppy. One wall features an ombre rainbow, splattered with paint to create a full-length pastel Pollock that’s undeniably Instagrammable. Opposite that, is an equally photogenic wall of rosy silk flowers placed perfectly above her kelly-green Joybird sofa.
“It’s really important to embrace whatever inspires you.”
While it’s hard to nail down Amina’s design inspiration to any one thing, she admits to taking cues from children’s decor designs and her own happy childhood memories. She feels that having the freedom to play with color and creativity is just as important for adults as it is for children. So ultimately her space is fun, while also being functional and comfortable.
Living in a small downtown space, Amina had to get creative with how she stores both her crafting supplies and her fashion accessories. Her solution was to simply incorporate her accessories into the design, evident most clearly in the display of colorful novelty purses lining her entry-way. That, coupled with her pastel kitchen cupboards – made entirely from strips of carefully placed Washi tape – shows just a sliver of her ingenuity and resourcefulness. If the look she wants doesn’t exist, Amina will come up with a clever way to bring it to life.
