Project Description

Sophisticated Living Room

A sophisticated living room designed by Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller for Jessica Chastain’s New York apartment. The subtly textured look of the living room walls was achieved with a Ralph Lauren Paint faux-suede finish in the Manhattan apartment of Jessica Chastain. The chandelier, sofa, armchairs, and rug are all by Ralph Lauren Home. The burlap-wrapped low table is from Mecox, and the gilded mirror and slipper chair, which both belonged to Lauren Bacall, was bought at auction.

Chastain met designers Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller and, alongside Passi, set about reviving the splendor of the Victorian-era space. “Soul retrieval was the real transformation here,” Carrier says. Fireplaces were important to the actress—“I told our Realtor I didn’t even want to see anything without fireplaces,” Chastain says—so she was thrilled when they discovered another one in the master bedroom that had been walled off. And an elaborate chandelier found in the laundry room was moved to a place of honor in the parlor.

“Our biggest triumph was breathing new life, glamour, and sophistication into the old girl,” Carrier notes. “This home was built to be bold and beautiful, like its new owner.”
