Anyone who has watched this season of Real Housewives of New York knows that Jenna Lyons is a style icon to know. Every part of the former J. Crew creative director’s wardrobe and home is effortlessly cool (from her kitchen to her closet). Recently, Jenna gave us a glimpse into the bedroom in her Manhattan apartment, and we can’t get over how chic it is.

The photos show Jenna’s stylish and eclectic bedroom in all its glory. Antique ‘old world’ details like the crystal chandelier, zebra rug, and marble countertops in the bathroom bring a touch of glamor. Clean-lined, mid-century designs like black ball lamps bring a stylish curve to the room, while the clean modern lines of the Crittal doors into Jenna’s bathroom ground us in the current age. The bed linens are a quirky and stylish mixture of faux fur, blue cotton, and velvet. Under less talented supervision, the room could look dissonant and awkward. Instead, Jenna has used her keen eye to create a chic and timeless masterpiece of a room.

Interior designers are just as obsessed with the look as we are. ‘We adore this space, the combination of different styles and textures works harmoniously’ says Melissa Read, creative director at Studio Burntwood. She admires the way the timber paneling ‘adds charm and character’ while working ‘in tandem with contemporary and sculptural elements such as the polished gold side tables.’

Artem Kropovinsky, founder and principal designer at Arsight also admires the harmony of the room. He says ‘at its core, this bedroom seamlessly melds contemporary flair with snug vibes. The varied textures and hues coalesce, crafting a chic yet homey sanctuary.’ 

'Marrying wood and metal results in an equilibrium that feels just right. The wood exudes coziness, and in contrast, the metal brings in a contemporary zing.’ In this way, Jenna’s bedroom is practically a masterclass in how to mix contemporary and modern design

Based in New York, Artem Kropovinsky, founder of Arsight, has a decade of extensive and considerable global design experience. Prioritizing minimalism, sustainability, and authenticity, Artem, alongside his team of professionals, works on projects in the US and worldwide.

The experts also love the way the room has been set up to open to the dramatic bathroom. Melissa Read says ‘the double Crittall doors to the bathroom divide the space without blocking any natural light, it also allows the eye to see the entire length of the space giving the illusion of openness. This design feature also allows the statement oversized marble vanity to be showcased.’ 

Artem adds: ‘Walking into the bathroom, the broad entry and intricate marble detailing elevate the mood to sheer indulgence, turning simple acts into lavish moments.’ In this way, Jenna’s clever design makes it so each impressive room elevates the essence of the other.
