Janine Carendi MacMurray's New York Apartment
from NY Social Diary
Островок спокойствия и артистической гармонии
в квартире американского дизайнера Janine Carendi MacMurray в Нью-Йорке
Designer Janine Carendi MacMurray lives in that elegant, tranquil apartment we all want—the kind of place that fuels those fantasies in which we own a few beautiful things and nothing more. It’s an aesthetic that requires discipline although she did say that they had hidden all her kids’ toys behind a door that Jeff wasn’t allowed to open.
Because her father is Swedish and her mother is Mexican she grew up in Mexico, Colombia, Sweden and then Connecticut, a childhood of difficult transitions that she says made her more flexible. Although she loved the vibrancy of life in Colombia and Mexico, she is most drawn to the quieter Scandinavian design sensibilities, “… if you look at Swedish design, it’s very purposeful; there tends to be a purpose for everything … I feel more comfortable with quiet.”
