"Interior designer Whitney Parris-Lamb lives in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, with her husband, Chris, and their sweet dog, Grete. Their apartment is meticulously curated, but what really sets it apart is the creative use of space. Here’s how Whitney set up a bright, sprawling home in a technically small space… "
"The interiors are characterized by an abundance of clean-lined built-ins made of quarter-sawn white oak, which provide storage on every level, and a general bright airiness.
“We tried to provide a warm, neutral base,” Ilizarov said, “with color coming from furnishings, rugs and drapery fabric.” The décor, incorporating mid-20th-century classics and fabrics sourced from India, is the work of Brooklyn-based Jesse Parris-Lamb Interior Design."
"Whitney Parris-Lamb can work a room: As a senior interior designer at Atelier Ace, she brings serious chicness to the brilliantly anointed Ace Hotels around the world. If you want to get in on that fun, well, now you can: Earlier this year, Whitney and a pal debuted Jesse Parris-Lamb to share their talents with personal clients. Hope you’ve got room on your Pinterest boards."

"The muted, dark blue façade of Christian Rudder’s four-storey Brooklyn row house belies the meticulous renovation that lies within. In the entrance hall, floor tiles spell out “Hello”, and Rudder, co-founder and president of dating website OkCupid, greets me with a hushed voice, so as not to wake his three-year-old daughter, Plum, who has just gone down for a nap.
“It was a low ceilings, everything narrow, three-family crowded Williamsburg jam,” says Rudder of the 1910 structure he bought in 2012 with his wife, Reshma Patel, founder of the public relations firm Think PR. The couple hired architects Brendan Coburn and Yuliya Ilizarov to tear it down and build a new home on the plot, a project that took more than two years. The only remnants from the original house are a few pieces of wood that were fashioned to make a counter in the kitchen.
