DP Customer Profile: I Spy in Jennifer’s Apartment…

This is what I’d like to call an “interactive DP Customer Profile.” Jennifer from New York City has graciously shared several pictures with us of her apartment. The task, should you choose to play along, is to find the following list of DP products within her photos below: an OFFI Tiki Stool, a twenty2 Gala Wallband, a CAKE Warp Bowl, a DwellStudio Motif Robin Pillow, an OFFI Duoplane DVD Shelf, and the Twinkle Living Milan Rug. Best of luck with the hunt!

Name: Jennifer

Where do you live? New York City

What do you do? Editor at a magazine

DP Purchase/s: OFFI Tiki Stool, CAKE Warp Bowl, Inhabit oxygen duvet cover (no longer available, so sad!), DwellStudio Motif Robin Pillow, various Hybrid-Home posters (many for gifts), upper playground Cat Woman Poster, twenty2 Gala Wallband, Twinkle Living Milan Rug, OFFI Duoplane DVD Shelf (used as bookshelf)

What’s your favorite DP product and why? My Milan rug. He is the “dog” that I don’t have to actually walk; when I received the package from DP everyone in my office came over to coo over him. In terms of most usable, my OFFI Tiki Stool functions every day as a footrest and/or stool for reaching high cabinets. And I love going to bed in my Inhabit duvet and sheets…

What was the best advice anyone ever gave you? You can do anything you want to do. Perhaps trite, but effective.

Tell us about your home, office, workspace, or favorite nook and cranny.
My apartment is very small, but filled with tons of colors, materials, and patterns. It is in itself a bit of a nook and cranny. Somehow I feel like it all fits, and it’s a very cozy space. I love being surrounded by my books and other things that mean something to me personally. The small space means I need to limit my possessions to what I truly love. Of course, it’s always a work in progress…

Any design pet peeves? “Blah.” I hate very boring wall colors like mouse brown and beige—why bother? Also, anything too studied turns me off. A place should be visually inspiring but also comfortable, and not try too hard.

Do you collect anything? Tell us of your treasures…Any prized possessions? My books are very important to me, being an editor/word person. I like how they create a wall in my studio and all of the different spine colors mesh with the overall colors and feel of my space. I also love my new/old Schwinn Breeze (from 1976), which I just got on eBay.

Movies you can watch over and over: The Apartment, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, La Dolce Vita, The Royal Tenenbaums

Thanks, Jennifer!
