Soothing Tones in a Victorian Brownstone in Jersey City

Located in Jersey City’s Van Vorst Park stands this 1850s Victorian brownstone. The townhouse belongs to interior designer Arianna de Gasperis – founder of And Studio – who completely redesigned the brownstone into a classic and serene home.

Many of the original features of the Victorian brownstone were still intact. Including crown molding, stained glass windows, and a unique wooden grand staircase. Arianna preserved and repaired these original features and new additions had to compliment the historic home.

And Studio added a natural oak herringbone floor and the walls are finished in textured diamond plaster. Which was added in collaboration with design company Jersey Ice Cream Co. Their Long Island Home has also featured on The Nordroom.

Let’s take a look at this beatiful serene Victorian house designed by And Studio.

The classic velvet armchairs bring warmth to the room which is otherwise decorated in light color tones.

This mirror is original to the house and Arianna obviously wanted to preserve it. What a stunning feature.

The kitchen is completely re-envisioned with a more functional layout.

The kitchen is designed in a classic English style with Shaker details and custom carpentry handmade in England.

And I wasn’t surprised to find out that this kitchen is made by my favourite English kitchen company deVOL. You can find many deVOL kitchens on The Nordroom, just click here.
