All we love about: Lily Allen’s New York Town House

The Dinner Party Checklist Reading All we love about: Lily Allen’s New York Town House 3 minutes Next Top 5 Interior Trends of 2023

A highlight of our week was spotting the newly renovated "weird & wonderful" home of  @lilyallen and @dkharbour in the latest issue of @archdigest.

The pair worked with AD100 designer Billy Cotton and architect Ben Bischoff of MADE to transform their Brooklyn town house into what can only be described the most magnificent maximalist and jaw dropping-ly stunning home.

In true Love Tree fashion, we thought we'd break down all that we love about this fairytale abode. 


Goes against the crowed

Mayer Rus of AD says it best...“the home issues a full-throated rebuke to the current vogue for hushed good taste wrapped in a straitjacket of beige.”

We too are over cool minimalism and the trendy cream on beige look.

We've always prided ourselves on going against the grain — being bold and making a statement. So to see a maximalist space full of quirks and 'oh-ah' moments gives us all the feels. 


Pattern on pattern

There's no denying we're big fans florals and animal print. Making the layering of textures and patterns of Lily & Davids home seem like the epitome of interior heaven. It's hard to find a square inch that isn't covered in pattern.

A selection of hand painted floral wallpaper (that's more like artwork) from Zuber graces the walls, while plush vintage inspired carpet from the iconic Pierre Frey adorns the floor. 

A favourite furniture piece of ours would have to be the tiger print modular sofa in the downstairs den. Its cube-like, 70's shape is one we know all too well.

Get the layered look with our range of House of Hackney Wallpaper & Cushions. 


Lamps in every corner

In our eyes, lighting is often what makes or breaks a space. We love how considered the lighting plan in this home is. 

From the elegant chandeliers, palm tree floor lamp in the living room to the wall sconce moment in the corner of the kitchen. Having a variety of lighting allows the mood of a room to change with the mood of the people inhabiting it.


A moody boudoir

We love nothing more than a mid-century inspired boudoir. Lily & David's windowless 'bed womb' gives new meaning to sexy-glam. 

With a frilly pink chintz bed cover and a velvet head board, this room is fabulously feminine.
