It’s always exciting to see our work in print, but especially when it’s a project we adore and a publication we hold on a pedestal. Such was the case last week when a gallery wall we worked on with actress Jill Kargman, star of Bravo’s hilarious comedy Odd Mom Out, popped up on Vogue.com.
To the unfamiliar, Odd Mom Out is a parody of momlife in Manhattan, and Jill stars as the foil to the blonde-hair, juice cleansing, soul-cycling set. The character is based on Jill’s own life, and her TV apartment is losley based on her real space on Third Avenue. Jill’s aesthetic is what you’d expect from the wry actress: it’s party eclectic, a bit dark, uniquely sophisticated, and as chic as can be. While Jill certainly had a vision for her space, she also enlisted the help of her longtime friend and interior designer Lauren Geddes Duff.
The wall, in Jill’s living room, was mostly made up of art she’d collected over the years, with personal touches throw in. Among the pieces on the wall: a sketch of the wedding dress Karl Lagerfeld designed for her wedding (Jill’s father is a former president of Chanel), a Damian Hirst skull, and a shadow box filled with a stack of laser-cut 100-dollar bills. The gallery wall is a true showstopper and the focal point of the room, both because of its size and the originality.
We’re excited to announce the next event in our lineup of great happenings at our studio space! Next Thursday, May 19, we will be teaming up with the color experts at Farrow & Ball to discuss the relationship between wall color and wall art, and ways to create a pairing that’s both beautiful and complementary.
Farrow & Ball color consultant Erica Silberman will be on hand to introduce the brand’s latest line of nine colors, and ILevel founder and expert curator David Kassel will discuss the principles of building a unique and personal art and object collection. Following a brief conversation, refreshments and Prosecco will be served, and attendees will have a chance to view the latest ILevel Studio collections and Farrow & Ball paint colors up close.
