Freelance creative producer Jennifer David’s 740-square-foot condo in Loring Park proves small space can live large with strategic design solutions. Former Minneapolis designer, Lisa Sherry, now based in North Carolina, helped pull together her design.
Character-adding details. Sherry suggested adding architectural details in an untraditional way by painting two colors on the wall—a white base and a barely-there pink above (Benjamin Moore’s Rose Mist) to create depth. "Jenni—being the cool, single woman that she is—gave me the chance to play with feminine colors," syas Sherry.
Pretty and practical furniture. Every small space’s answer to extra seating, poufs are easy to find (David's, at bottom left, is from West Elm) and have handy when friends drop by unexpectedly.
Statement-making pieces. David describes the fun-factor twists Sherry added, such as the gold egg-shaped coffee table, as “nuggets of yumminess.” The sculptural table, called River Stone, is from the Phillips Collection.
Mix it up. David loves an eclectic mix of patterns, design styles, and colors. Bold Moroccan prints, bright pillows, and patterned throws spice up her otherwise largely white and cream furnishings.
Multitasking layout. Sherry helped David remodel the space so it can accommodate David’s lifestyle, whether she’s working, entertaining with friends, or relaxing during off hours. "Creating an artistic condo was the primary goal," Sherry says of David's space.
