Eclectic Home Tour – Verdoier

How do you mix African, Chinoiserie, American Rustic, and modern all together? Today’s Eclectic Home Tour of Verdoier takes us inside a 1920’s home that seamlessly blends the beautiful old bones with an eclectic interior. The collected style comes from the perfect mix of antiques and vintage finds, lots of texture, and perfectly placed pops of color!

Jill Danyelle owns Verdoier, a boutique interior design firm in New York City. The French word verdoier means “to become green” as in flourishing and coming to life. Jill says, “the most important thing about a house is the life that takes place within it.” I fell in love with her South Orange, New Jersey project.

Says Jill, “These clients had recently relocated from an apartment in New York City to a larger house in New Jersey. They have a colorful modern bohemian style and were looking for some help to bring it to light in their new home. We sourced a solid foundation of pieces that speak to both their style and the more traditional 1920s house they were making a home.”

How do you mix African, Chinoiserie, American Rustic, and modern all together? Jill says, “Keep your palette neutral. I definitely committed to the black and white here. It doesn’t feel harsh as the greenery and botanicals bring in life and the rattan and wicker keep the room feeling warm.” Vintage botanical gallery wall

I love that the owners of the home chose to keep the dark wood paneling and trim that adds such drama to this formal dining room.  Old home with original dark wood paneling and trim - love the cowhide rug and bamboo chairs that give it a more casual feel

A cowhide rug and white bamboo chairs give the room a more casual feel while the glass dining and console tables keep things from feeling too heavy.

Unique additions like the peacock sculpture add interest and are perfect conversation starters.

The bedroom is a mix of color, pattern and texture but it still feels serene. Love this boho bedroom with blue oriental rug, bamboo bed and vintage bedspread

The bamboo headboard is the perfect choice in front of a window because it allows the light to shine through.

Beds create the perfect L-shaped “sectional sofa” with lots of pillows for comfortable lounging.

  1. This home is so very interesting! Collected but not cluttered, each piece eclectic, but not trying to outdo one another. Love the use of bamboo, rattan, wicker, bringing that global vibe to every space. Great job.
