Though her address is New York, New York, Jenny Cipoletti of Margo& Me has a style crush on another great city. Paris is the inspiration behind the decor of her Manhattan apartment, with its soft, neutral color palette, warm wood floors, and a classic black piano anchoring the space.
"There's something so clean, yet inviting about the French approach to the interiors that we're extremely attracted to," Jenny says of her and her husband Freddie's taste. The couple worked with Williams Sonoma on designing the space, offsetting the traditional elements with contemporary accents like a brass floor lamp and marble coffee table.
When it comes to maximizing space, Jenny is a total pro. "Although New York living can feel small and boxy, there are ways to embrace and curate beautiful little moments throughout the floor plan," she says. She utilized the open concept floor plan to create a room that feels welcoming and spacious despite its square footage. "Choose your chairs wisely. I think the four chairs worked nicely in the space because they are completely different silhouettes," Jenny explains.
"Pair a classic club chair that has soft, curved lines with another two that have a more modern, strong feel to them," she adds. And, pro tip: Save space by avoiding a media console. In her apartment, Jenny mounted the television on the wall and used bookshelves for additional storage.
Jenny's main goal was to create a space that was beautiful but also approachable. "We're big entertainers and love watching movies and playing the piano. It's nice that the space easily lends itself to either of those two things being the focus of the evening," she says. Besides it's stunning color story and mix of furniture styles, the best part of Jenny's new home is the reaction she's getting from friends. "The number one compliment we keep receiving from guests, which is my favorite part about the new space, is how cozy it is," she says.
