I Spy: All Things Jenna
Sold back in 2011, this Park Slope townhouse once belonging to J. Crew Creative Director Jenna Lyons continues to be a source of inspiration to us over at The Inside Source. The home — which will forever live in our hearts and on the web — is rife with design ideas: dark walls with stark white bedding, antelope horns, cheery splashes of color, and a pretty epic crystal chandelier in the living room. We’ll have to wait and see how Lyons decorates her future digs for new inspiration. Until then, follow the links to the items above on eBay and you can starting living a la Lyon.
Okay, I’ll admit it: I am a chandelier junkie. Whenever I see one, I want it. This proves to be a problem, being that chandeliers aren’t necessarily the easiest thing to incorporate into a home decor in multiples — unless, of course, you live in an estate fit for any Downtown Abbey character, and you very well might. Nevertheless, I am always on the hunt for that perfect chandelier. And if I can’t have it, you will! Check out this one in the French style, or this six-arm one from Europe with dripping crystals. If you’re really going for it, there’s an absolutely stunning brass and crystal number, also in the French style, at the Buy It Now price of $1,795.

Decorating in Exile
By Jenny Bahn
In 1971, The Rolling Stones ditched out on Great Britain (and some tax issues) and moved to the South of France for some rock and relaxation. It was in the sprawling, 16-room Villa Nelcotte where they recorded Exile on Main Street. This photograph, taken by Ethan Russell, really captures the essence of that time. My favorite part of the shot is the reflection of the photographer in the massive mirror against the back wall. Hanging above is a large, gorgeous chandelier, which got me to thinking: maybe I need one of those…
After some eBay digging, I found a handful worthy of rock royalty: a brass and crystal basket chandelier, a French lead crystal and bronze number, and a pair of 8-arm chandeliers (also French). Now I’ve got the lighting; all I need are The Stones.
