Family Haven

I've found another beautiful home to fall in love with. Jenny Li and her husband Hans Gissinger spent four months remodelling the home in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, turning it into a serene family home to share with their three children.

Light is important to Li, so she painted the walls, floor and ceiling a bright white. This is softened by layers of natural textures and shots of vivid colour. One of my favourite pieces is the Indian daybed which doubles as the coffee table.

Art and precious keepsakes dotted throughout give the home plenty of personality. Little touches like balls of bright wool in a glass jar, and a feather boa strung over a light add a touch of whimsy.

The kids decorated their own rooms and their creativity is obvious. Taylor's gorgeous headboard was made when she and her friends painted a large piece of linen in the backyard at her 15th birthday party. I love this idea! She now has a piece that will always hold special memories and it looks amazing.

The boy's room, belonging to younger brothers, Harmony and Son, features their colourful creations.

I'm so inspired by this home, it seems to have a perfect combination of calm and fun!
