Get the Look Decor: Creative Comforts

Aug 7, 2011

by Christine Domanic

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

This weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the cozy two-bedroom red brick home of Jess where she lives in Albany, New York with her husband James and dachshund Jake. Their home is filled with plenty of room for all their artistic endeavors. The front room serves as a music studio, where Jess is able to teach and practice. The lower level holds their vintage inventory and has a shipping station. James runs a local reading series, so having the second bedroom allows them to host visiting poets. Plus, there are ton of windows, which Jake uses to sunbathe! Visit Jess on Flickr for more photos of her inspiring home.

 

How would you describe your home decorating style?
Both James and I are attracted to mid-century furnishings and have filled the house with as much of it as we can tastefully fit! Though James tends more toward the architectural and industrial look, I sweeten it up with my whimsical mobiles, array of houseplants, and my weakness for vintage dachshund décor. Though we gravitate toward ’50s minimalism, we mix in contemporary pieces, to keep it fresh.

Did you decide to decorate in this style or was there an evolution to your decorating process?
Our style has evolved, but we still have pieces from before we met. James has a pair of vintage JBL speakers that he’s had for about 12 years, and they still fit seamlessly into our current aesthetic. We are always picking up new pieces, so I’ll often swap them out for something we’ve had for awhile, to keep things new and uncluttered. I feel like this will always be the case, so our style will continue to change over the years. There are a few pieces that I could never part with, I always think of those when the Etsy Blog does a Saved From the Fire article — I doubt I could pick just one.


What inspires you when it comes to decorating?
I think many people are inspired by color, but I always look at the shape of a piece and the movement it makes in the room. I think that’s one of the reasons I love mobiles so much. They are always moving and always making new arrangements and shadows. Plants are always changing, too. Outgrowing their pots and forcing you to find a new home for them, growing taller or hanging longer. I try to emulate these combinations in my decorating. Anything that gives the room momentum — setting my couch at an angle to the wall, displaying the cameras on our mantel towards the center, or rotating artwork out when I find something new I love. I do love color, and have pops of it throughout the house, but when I’m really attracted to a piece, I’m attracted to its shape, texture and movement before its shade.


What is your favorite part about your home?
Undoubtedly, our fireplace. We’ve lived in this house for only a year, and it’s the first time we’ve ever had a fireplace, but now I’m sure that I cannot do without one. It gets quite chilly in the winter, so the three of us will bundle up next to that fireplace and warm up. It’s fabulous! It heats the entire front room, and adds all the charm you’d expect: crackling and popping, a woodsy aroma, and a toasty glow. Jake actually drags his little bed right up to the screen and hangs out there all evening. I know I’ve only had one Albany winter with this fireplace, but it has already stolen the spotlight.


Does your home hold any strong memories?
Since we’ve only been here a year, we do not yet have a slew of strong memories. We did throw a Haunted Housewarming Party last Halloween, which was amazing. Our friends, like Etsy, know how to celebrate Halloween properly: costumes, costumes, costumes. I suspect it will become a tradition in this house, so see you all over here on October 31!


Where are your favorite places to shop for home items?
I love finding items in my local community. The capital region is full of amazing thrift stores and antique shops. I once walked into Albany’s Habitat for Humanity ReStore and found a mid-century kitchen table and buffet! There are a slew of fantastic antique stores in both Albany and Hudson, as well as the Brimfield Antique Show, less than two hours away. I also hunt for home items on Etsy! My favorite Etsy purchases include a print from Groundwork, a pair of vintage brass birds, and my adorable dachshund pillow.

Jess balances her time between her two biggest passions, violin and vintage. Working from home during the day allows her to alternate between practicing for concerts or auditions and listing items on Etsy. Learn more about Jess on her blog and be sure to stop by her Etsy shop, jessjamesjake, if you are a fan of vintage fashions, accessories and home decor from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

    I LOVE reading about other creative couples who've found a balance making their space work for both of them. I think it helps to have such great taste and fabulous style that Jess and James (and Jake) obviously have. My husband is a woodworker who uses primarily hand tools (read: lots of wood shavings and walls of awesome tools hung up on peg board) and I'm an upcycler of all sorts of discarded materials (read: lots of old toys, fabric, vintage items, containers, and corks spilling off shelves), so our home is a constant fluid shifting of projects from one room to another. I think those two words "shipping station" are the object of my envy these days :)

    I love these looks and the vintage approach although I'm not sure I would have it in my own home as I like modern things too...maybee a mix could work!

    In the 60's I decorated my first apartment in what is commonly known as Mid Century Modern. Now I purchase it to sell. I enjoy seeing homes such as yours using the wonderful treasures of that era in such a lovely way.
