The March issue of Lucky Magazine is thick, fat, juicy: like a deluxe fashion burger with a super-size side of perfectly spiced curly fries. My favorite, as always, is the 'Lucky Life' column, in which we get a peek behind the curtain at the home life of an uber-creative mover and shaker. This time around we meet a designer at Madewell–and she's the living embodiment of Outfit to Room!
This Brooklyn apartment is exactly what you'd expect from someone who helps create the look and feel of J. Crew's little sister brand. The tone is utilitarian chic with occasional splashes of color and pattern, and the focus is on fabulous texture and materials. Wood, leather, and cotton abound; there are plenty of stripes; and there's a sensibility of heritage-meets-modern that will never go out of style.
Of course I had to put together a wee 'get the look' guide. With clothing from Madewell, and with decor from big box staples like CB2 and West Elm. I adore how simple, straightforward, and accessible this look is. There's nothing complicated or pretentious about it, it would be brilliant for an urban childless couple in their 20's or an established suburban family of six. So I guess you could say…I'm sold!
