Jeanne Fu House Tour

Inspired by my friends and Apartment Therapy, I wanted to share a travel adventure of the local sort: a house tour of Chez Fu, a 500 square foot studio in a brownstone building on the Upper East Side:

My daily ritual: hanging the keys to Chez Fu above the entryway
A fun and modern shower curtain brighten up an otherwise bland bathroom
with black, white, and green accents to match
A canvas from Kenya and vintage calendar adorn the entryway
A mix of masks from South Africa, Puerto Rico, and Argentina a quirky kitchen make
DIY to die for: a makeshift fireplace and fire engine red Ikea Expedit bookcase room divider
Arguably the studio centerpiece, this Ikea gem provides privacy and superb storage. Bright, poppy accent furniture and decor add a sense of eclectic modernism to the living room space.


Additional ‘floating’ storage thanks to Ikea and Dad’s DIY talents
A Manhattan studio with decent closet space – as high as they (there are two) are deep!
A Kenyan love mask and Indonesian wooden decor hang above the ‘bedroom’
