Design Soulmate: Jenny Wolf Interiors
I first became familiar with Jenny Wolf Interiors when I was a junior at Wofford. My passion for interior design was swelling, and I'd reached out to the college's career counselor to discuss my design interests and job opportunities. I learned about Dakota Willimon, a Wofford alumna and fellow Art History major, who was working in New York City for Jenny. It was a powerful feeling seeing another Wofford Art History major go on to be so successful working for such an incredible firm. I quickly became absolutely enamored with their work and an admirer from afar, and it's not hard to see why.
A lot of designers love the quote "God is in the details." But not all designers are masters of this. Like most people, I'm a sucker for the details, and Jenny Wolf nails them. In all of her projects, the attention to the small things is what elevates her spaces into rooms with endless depth and character.
New Orleans born, Jenny opened her firm in 2011 after working for Ralph Lauren and earning a degree in Interior Design from Parsons. She believes "a home should reflect the sensibilities of the people living in it, showcasing the things they love and have collected over time." She also echoes one of my own beliefs: "When you buy things you love, they always find a way to work together."
It's no secret that blue grays and whale blues and whale grays and all the combinations thereof make me weak in the knees —but I'm also inexplicably drawn to European mounts (I'll owe that one to my brother's influence.) Several of Jenny's spaces utlize both, which gets a giant two-thumbs up from me.
I could go on and on about what makes her work so amazing, but I'll let it speak for itself:
Love Jenny's taste as much as I do? Check out some of my inspired finds below. Lastly, I spy a Paule Marrot print in this living room above. Stay tuned for my next post — I'll tell you a little more about the Parisian textile artist and show you which print I purchased for myself — one of my first big design purchases!
