Whether she’s wearing a head-to-toe designer look or an ensemble she proudly tagged on Amazon, Jacey never fails to keep her audience, including 520,000 Instagram followers, coming back for more. Jacey’s followers are not only thirsty for content revolving around her approach to fashion, but they’re also interested in her experience as a busy mother and wife living in Los Angeles.
Every day, browse her Instagram and you’ll find everything from videos of her and her husband, real estate developer Grant Leavitt, dancing with their two-year-old daughter, June, to a snapshot of her morning routine, which recently includes meditation. But there is another part of his lifestyle brand that people have turned to: interior design.
Jacey recently invited his Instagram followers to weigh in on every step of his kitchen remodeling process, executed by designer Martha Mulholland, who has also helped revamp the rest of her 100-year-old Arts & Crafts property. “I like to push the boundaries a little more with my house than with my personal style,” says Jacey. “I like to have a little more fun with this.”
And the fun Jacey had with the design process shows it, but not without its own challenges. Considering that the historic Los Angeles residence is protected by the Mills Act (a state law that requires preservation of property), there were design limitations to be addressed, such as accepting that an island was not suitable for the layout and need to keep the kitchen. original original patterned flooring in black and white. “We had to work with what we had, and respect and improve upon the architectural details of the early 1900s,” Jacey explains. “We wanted to look into those details and bring our own personality to the space.”
Martha encouraged Jacey to complement the kitchen’s hexagon mosaic floor tiles by painting the cabinets in Farrow & Ball’s Lichen, a striking muted green that takes on a different tone depending on the natural light pouring into the space. any time. “In the morning it’s a lot brighter, and the green shows up and is a lot darker at night,” Jacey says.
From there, the duo focused on little touches to add warmth to the cooking space. A small Lulu & Georgia table lamp set atop a wooden counter stool, a sconce placed directly above a piece of floral wall art, light fixtures and fixtures featuring mixed metals – the attention to detail is evident in every square inch of the design.
Now that the kitchen is done, it’s proven to be the heart of Jacey’s family home. “When you live and breathe in a room all day, every day, it should reflect who you are and the person you want to be,” Jacey says.
It’s safe to say that Jacey’s newly remodeled kitchen is exactly that. It’s the perfect representation of her relaxed yet sophisticated style.
