Kid-Centric Townhouse in the East Village

Kid-Centric Townhouse in the East Village

Would you let your daughter's classmates adorn your white muslin sofa from John Derian? Pamela Bell encourage it. The New York Times takes us inside the home of one of the original partners of Kate Spade and show us how she's dedicating her East Village town house to her children...

Though she's not worried about perfection, Ms. Bell has a stylish eye and is able to make the imperfect, near perfect. We're fond of the dizzying array of paint colors and vintage wallpapers through out the home and the dedication to a mix of high-end and budget decor (lots of Urban Outfitters light fixtures!). One of our favorite details is the homemade chandeliers made from spray-painted branches wrapped in holiday lights.

Be certain to check out the story,
When Perfect Is Not the Goal
and all the pictures in the slideshow.
