Jeanie and her dog Tator Tot live in the East Village in New York. Her fun and colorful apartment is 900 square feet and she has rented it for the past 24 years.
Jeanie has been collecting since she was five years old. Her apartment is reminiscent of a curated mini pop culture museum.
Bold colors on walls and animal prints on furniture, multi-colored PEZ dispensers, bobble heads and tea cups fill every nook and cranny.
Jeanie is a professional organizer. She has been referred to as “The Chaos Conqueror.” She helps her clients create polished, cohesive and efficient home and work spaces.
Jeanie says she smiles every time she opens the front door.
Her home has a vibrant East Village location that reflects the color and energy of her home. She says that the action on the streets adds to her home’s atmosphere.
Her favorite thing about her apartment are the nine windows that run the length of her apartment.
Her least favorite thing is all the dust her collections collect. She says each collection gets a deep clean once or twice per year.
Jeanie created shelves made of books that hold her collection of globes.
Above you see a vintage wagon filled with books. Books seem to be everywhere.
More collections and what appears to be a pet gate for her dog.
She uses vertical space for many of her collections and displays. She even makes a display of her shoes.
Above is one side of her galley kitchen. Below is the other side.
She says she’s accepted that her kitchen will never be renovated because she rents.
Her bedroom is a bit more sedate. She has a small desk holding her computer in the corner by the window.
I think it’s fun the way she has painted her walls in various colors even in the same room.
And above is her beloved dog Tator Tot.
I hope you enjoyed this apartment tour. I imagine you now have your color fix for the day!
