OK so maybe some of the decor is a little too "What's Eating Gilbert Grape." But of course the owners of Brooklyn's Moon River Chattel have an amazing second home. Looking at photos of it fuels a silly fantasy where I buy a derelict old place and fix it up myself with whimsical touches here and there ... Alas, I haven't a DIY bone in my body let alone the patience needed for such a project. Still, a girl can dream.
An eccentric handmade shelf, with a backdrop of an assortment of kilim wall tapestries, a cowhid rug on the floor, a more industrial office chair and desk to the left (from what I can make out)... all give this space its liveliness, pattern, texture and undeniable bohemian chic.
