I think I first feel in love with Jenni Kayne's house when I saw her kitchen featured in Martha Stewart. The story had a focus on organization and how beautiful even the most mundane household objects can be. Being that I HATE clutter, this story was right up my alley not to mention that Kayne's style and aesthetic is pretty impeccable. My favorite part of her kitchen and actually her whole house is the material selections and the color palette. In the kitchen, the white, clean line surfaces and cabinets make the room light and bright while the wood accents bring a warmth and ease to the space. In the den, the black panel walls makes the space cozy yet slightly formal while the linen sectional contrasts the effect with its modern lines yet relaxed feel.
The exterior shares the same pared down elegance as the interior making it hard to believe that this home was built in the 1980s. I would love to see how the house looked before as it would be even greater testament to the home's design team at Standard, the architecture firm that is also responsible for the design of Kayne's first retail store. I especially love the backyard with its outdoor fireplace and expansive glass doors into the main living room.
