Steal This Look: Pastel Bright Living Room on Shelter Island

April 18, 2017

As we ease into spring on the East Coast, we’re admiring fashion buyer Lisa Jones’s Shelter Island living room, a summery mix of midcentury Danish and new Nordic design. We like the way Jones and husband James Hyatt updated their vintage furniture and sample sale finds with new upholstery and unique color combinations (colors inspired by Mexican architect Luis Barragán). Here is a list of exact and similar sources to re-create the look.

For more on the project, see our post A Fashion Buyer’s Danish-Inspired Getaway on Shelter Island.

“The inspiration behind the living room colors are from Luis Barragán combinations: pink, green, and yellow,” Jones says. Photograph by Jonathan Hokklo.
