What to say about this house guys! Wow. I remember meeting Leen quite clearly, because she has the most distinctive personal style and I instantly loved it. Everyone always wants their style to be unique and special, but Leen’s really is, in a way that I could never see anyone else pull off her clothes in a way that she does. Except for Fran Fine and Grandma Yetta, who she says are her style icons.
I had a sneaking suspicion that Leen’s home would be equally intruiging as I caught some glimpses in Instagram pictures. So on one hot spring day last month I went over and was quite blown away. Not only by the proportions of the house, because this home has The Highest Ceilings, but most of all by the bold choices Leen and her boyfriend Kurt have made in the house. I was so overwhelmed by all the awesomeness going on that I feel I didn’t quite capture everything, probably because I was admiring the couple’s record collection, books and impressive closet space just a little too much.
Leen told me she lived around the corner when her boyfriend discovered this home was for sale. They weren’t really looking to buy but ended up purchasing it, and they were quite right to do so. Leen and Kurt are only the fourth owners of this house, and a lot of the original details remain intact, like the wallpaper in the hallway and the dark ceilings in the dining area, and oh the cigar room where their clothes now reside.
Thank you so much Leen for having me over!
