Jeanie's Cavalcade of Candy & Cartoons

Jeanie's Cavalcade of Candy & Cartoons

Name: Jeanie
Location: East Village - NY, NY

I likened the aesthetic of my home to Pee Wee's Big Top situated in Candyland. Being a child of the late 70s, my biggest influences were cartoons and candy which have somehow shaped my personal design approach. 

I'm an avid collector of nostalgic pop culture like lunch boxes, glass soda bottles, Pez and vintage finds like globes and Carnival Chalkware. 

My collections dictate my design direction - although there are over 20 visible collections, they're curated and organized. Every group is treated like an art installation.

I take pride that I've cultivated a rental apartment from a boring flat white box to an explosion of color using paint, temporary wall paper & oil cloth with 60% found or repurposed furnishings. My home makes me happy. 

Thanks, Jeanie!
