A SPACIOUS & LIGHT FAMILY HOME IN BROOKLYN, NY

After falling in love with the Cobble Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn (New York), Jenni Li and her husband Hans Gissinger decided to purchase a three-story home in this area. A four month renovation turned the house into a modern home suitable for a family with three kids. The once-closed-off kitchen and storage rooms were converted into an open living, dining, and kitchen area. With French doors leading out to the home’s roomy backyard—featuring a custom wood-fired oven — the ground floor is now the center of family life. To cultivate a creative, artistic atmosphere for her children throughout their home, Jenni paired colorful keepsakes scored on trips back to her native Peru with her husband’s artworks. And she gave her kids the freedom to decorate their own bedrooms. I love how the children’s drawing give a personal touch. Jenni: “The kids’ art pieces are especially meaningful. Children’s eyes are always so pure.”

  1. What a beautiful home, I love it. The white interior really shows off the wonderful Peruvian artifacts and the addition of French style furniture with its curves and style adds warmth and character to the ‘all white scheme’, as does the gorgeous wood flooring and exposed brick wall. I love kids art work – I don’t think you can go wrong with it, its as it is, bright, colourful and personal. Perfect blend of styles, creating a stunning, homely home :O)

  2. This is mesmerizing and what a visual delight..Wow! I just loved the fact that the dominant decor is with white color in use. She is such an amazing mother to give that kind of freedom to kids. I guess this is the way to learn and love creativity. Thanks for sharing this beautiful post, lovely :)

  3. love the space… where is your couch from?
