A Designer’s Pattern-Filled Apartment

Lilse McKenna is a talented, young interior designer who first came onto my radar via Instagram where she has shared sneak peeks of her super charming apartment. Naturally, I was delighted to see a tour of the full space on One Kings Lane recently. One thing that I love about Lilse’s work is the way in which she infuses the spaces she designs with interesting patterns and rich textures, resulting in a look that is layered and cozy. Her home is filled home with a level of character, architectural details, and furnishings you wouldn’t normally expect to find in a New York City rental, but Lilse says she has treated each rental she has had as a mini shophouse of sorts, experimenting with new fabrics, techniques, and motifs and enjoying the fruits of her labor until it’s time to move again.
