This 'amazingly-beautiful-packed-fulla-personality' 1940's Nebraskan home spotted on Design Sponge belongs to interior designer (obviously!) Jessica McKay of Birdhouse Interior Design and her gourmet baker husband Christopher. Their home is full of various inherited vintage hand me downs, original artworks and antiques that are highlighted but don't overshadow. They merely sit happily alongside the mixture of contemporary fabrics with a nod to native pattern and design bringing the entire space together.
This home is a true example of how blending old and new really can work. Their living room couch belonged to Christopher's mother (below) and works perfectly as a central piece to house their array of colourful (and modern!) cushions. Their fantastic turquoise dining room chairs were picked up from a flea market after a school updated their own furnishings, their blue striped living room curtains were recycled from an old rug and the winged back chair found in an antique store was given a new lease of life after being reupholstered in grey vinyl (yes, vinyl!) and a brass nailhead trim.
Jessica clearly has a playful side too....a hint of leopard print on the couch, the infamous oversized Ikea Maskros Pendant Light dominating the master bedroom, the bright Jonathan Adler Table Lamps and illustrated Dwell Studio bedding are all obvious clues that she doesn't take it all too seriously!
Thumbs up to this place!
