Michelle Adams’ Layered Style

Michelle Adams 3

Back in January, House Beautiful featured the home of Michelle Adams in their February issue. You probably know Michelle as the founder of Lonny and the former Editor-in-Chief of Domino. Not too long ago, Michelle decided to leave the hustle and bustle of New York for the peace and comfort of her home state of Michigan, where she now works as a consultant for various creative businesses. Wanting to put down roots, Michelle purchased a charming, old fixer-upper in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which would allow her to be closer to her family and live life at a more palatable pace than what years of working as a magazine editor in New York would demand. I certainly can’t blame her!

The house had good bones, but was in need of some big updates. Inspired by her favorite hotel, the JK Capri in Italy (thank you for introducing me to this stunning property years ago, Michelle!), Michelle sought to create a timeless environment. Rather than concern herself with trends, Michelle added thoughtful architecture to the home, laid a crisp foundation by painting most of the walls in Ralph Lauren’s beloved Tibetan Jasmine, and layered in accents in various shades of blue. The home features an eclectic mix of old and new, traditional and modern, masculine and feminine with a vibe that is chic, yet relaxed. Over the weekend, One Kings Lane shared a new tour of Michelle’s stylish home as well as a preview of her new furniture collection with Skyline. It is fun to see the house styled a little differently than the last time around and to get a new look at the chic spaces Michelle has curated.

  1. I like how many traditional items she uses, yet it doesn’t feel stuffy or old. Whatever she changes in the meantime, when these photos come up again, they will still look fresh years from now. That is good taste.
