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 project – a 1920’s New Jersey home where she seamlessly blended the old bones with an eclectic interior.
Take the tour and make sure to stick around to see all of my Eclectic Home Tours.
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.”
Jill found the old light fixture and the lamp on eBay.
A classic Chesterfield sofa gets a modern update in blue velvet.
I love the unique affiliate macrame window covering that’s so light and airy.
I love that the owners of the home chose to keep the dark wood that adds such drama to this formal dining room …
but a cowhide rug and bamboo chairs give the room a more casual feel.
Original hardwood floors add warmth throughout the house.
The bedroom is a mix of color, pattern and texture but it still feels serene.
Once the home was finished, Jill returned when the couple found out they were expecting.
What a fun house with loads of personality.
