Solange Knowles’ Brooklyn Pad

Over the Summer Solange Knowles’ Brooklyn home was featured in Elle.  I could not get enough, and actually wanted to see more of this songstress/DJ/photographer/model’s abode.  I was immediately struck by how Solange blends modern and rustic pieces in her interior.  In the image above simple white chairs surround a modern rustic table.  The dining room is topped off with a cool Malick Sidibe photograph.  I am in love!

In the bedroom a vintage white bedframe is surrounded by a cool mix of African prints.  The stool covered in African wax fabric is from Anthropologie, and the rug has an amazing mix of color and pattern.

Every home should have a gallery wall, and Solange has a simple one filled with oversized art.  The art is a perfect complement to the cool gray sofa in the living room.

I love how cultural pieces have been integrated into every room in a modern way (so Brooklyn!).  In the office a curtain with a kuba print design is being put to good use as a backdrop for photos with friends.  Another nod to Sidibe who took portraits in front of textile backdrops.  A photographer herself, I’m sure the symbolism was not lost on Solange.

To see more from Solange check out her blog.  It’s full of visual inspiration.
