To say this home is charming is something of an understatement. Take a quick tour of Kristi and Chris’ beautiful New Jersey home, brimming with retro 1970s details and vintage panache!
Joybird customers Kristi and Chris were instantly smitten with the high gloss bamboo floors, the vaulted ceiling, sunken fireplace seating area, and modern European kitchen of this 1970’s charmer (can you blame them?) As a fashion stylist and vintage clothing seller, Kristi saw the potential in the space right away, and immediately embraced the home’s retro vibes by filling the space with funky vintage details and quirky collectables. When it came to larger furniture pieces however, she knew she needed something durable, (she has two young boys and a cat to contend with) but still vintage in style. The Joybird Hughes collection fit the bill, lending just the right mid-century style to the living room.
While she admits to having a taste for expensive pieces, Kristi is nothing if not savvy in finding clever ways to get the look, but at a better price. She is an expert at scouring flea markets and antique stores, always on the lookout for the perfect boomerang coffee table! One of the biggest challenges in this home was finding a way to create definitive spaces and dimension throughout the open floor plan. She kept the color scheme classic and easy to customize by painting crisp white walls and augmenting with bright pops of color in decor. Kristi added a splash of exotic textiles to her design to keep the space from feeling too dated, and finished the look with a trendy assortment of plants.
