More of Colette’s Home (and sources!)

Between Colette and Jen Aniston, this is turning into a week of celebrating the stylish single gal here at E of S! You guys totally freaked as much as I did over the genius of Colette’s home and so I asked her for a few more snaps of her space and some of the sources you requested! Hope you enjoy seeing more of this incredible space.

I love the Fornasetti plates on the black wall paired with black upper cabinets and glossy black counter tops!


Colette shares a bit about her most favorite piece of furniture int he kitchen:

“I covered up a window to accommodate my most favorite piece of furniture.. A french piece that is about 150 years old.  When I bought it, it was white and I painted it green when I was in a shabby chic mode!  When I moved here, of course, I painted it black.  I have moved this big boy at least 4 times… I always say that this piece will be my coffin!”


Madeline in all her tutu-ed splendor ready for high tea!

Shown here is a new piece of art she picked up by artist Francine Turk.


Her master bedroom and bath are glamorous and incredibly luxurious. I of course noticed the tiny corner of the lucite Ghost chair at the vanity.  Love it in combination with the more traditional and ornate mirror and marble!


In her daughter’s bathroom, Colette used more Fornasetti in the form of their wallpaper from Cole & Son.


She built these cubbies in her master bath. Love.


Other sources you requested:

*Chandeliers in living room/dining area: MOOOi

*Skeleton/snake print above the sofa: one of a kind from the home of Chicago designer George Lowell (from whom she begged to sell her the piece right off his own wall- nice negotiation skills, Colette!)

* Photos above fireplace by photographer Beth Moon.
