Deconstructing The Decor: Jenna Lyons’ iconic J Crew office

Most pinned office image on Pinterest? Must be this one, from the iconic office of J Crew’s Creative Director Jenna Lyons.

And with good reason. Her quirky mix of texture, print and love of layering translates as easily to interior decor as is does to style at the US cult brand.

There’s sheepskin, colour layered on colour (check out the solid orange keyboard skin on watermelon coloured desk), Moroccan rugs and classic chairs against a chaotic-meets-stylish backdrop of tear sheets and inspiration boards.

(And if you’re as interested as me, check out this amazing 360 panoramic of her massive office by Sam Rohn here, via The Fast Company).

    The view is fantastic. But I would definitely need to have a wee tidy up in here before I could get to work. Bit too much going on for me! Probably explains why I’m not the Creative Director at J Crew. Oh well, I can but dream. Lorraine x
