Jordana Brewster’s boho LA lifestyle has gotten a major modern NYC makeover. While on location filming the upcoming FX series American Crime Story, and having a new home built in LA, Jordana has made New York her temporary home base. Her two-bedroom apartment, with its 11-foot ceilings and wall of windows, is full of vibrant colors and fantastic geometric accents that have us totally swooning thanks to this tour via Lonny. Check out her bold, modern pad and get ready for some major decor envy, but don’t worry — we’ve done a little window shopping to get the look. You know, just in case you need some bright blue lucite or a geometric rug to perk up your home.
From angular blue lucite chairs to oversized paintings and angular vases, Jordana’s apartment is all about playing with color. “It’s incredible how far a bit of color will go,” Brewster told Lonny. She admits that usually she tends to go for a more eclectic, bohemian style when she is decorating her home, but the bold color palette of this rental is consistent with her Portuguese roots. When it comes to making her home feel like home she said that a sort of “buttoned-up heritage” has tremendous appeal.
Her appreciation for boho style shines through when it comes to entertaining. She told Lonny, “I like the more put-it-together-and-make-it-look-beautiful approach without having to be so perfect — otherwise, I’d never entertain.” Instead of bringing out the good silver, Jordana prefers an eclectic collection of charming, ivy-patterned dishes.
In Jordana’s modern, eclectic kitchen you’ll find pops of contrasting color and a mix of retro and modern lines. In this oh-so-sleek space, we spy some excellent colored glassware. Grab a set of the green goblets ($6) and the orange drinking glasses ($3) from CB2 for a rocking dining room color palette. And depending on how many you need, you could splurge on these incredible geometric bar stools from Eric Trine ($300), or just add a pop of color to the bar stools you already have.
For a bold, bright and minimalist bedroom, look no farther than Jordana’s digs. We’re not sure where she got her bright red nightstand, but we’re pretty sure we could hack the IKEA Lack side table with a coat or two of paint like this DIY from Homeli. The collection of fabulously faceted wooden pillars from CB2 ($70) bring a punch of color and a catch-all tray ($42) by the side of the bed is perfect for keeping those earrings from running astray. Top off the bedroom look with a bright throw blanket like this woven one from Anthropologie ($60) and you’re done.
So will all these modern pieces find their way into the home she is building in L.A.? Probably not. Jordana admits that she’s always been drawn to modern spaces but now that she’s a mother she wants to return to something more traditional. “I think it has to do with being a mother and having this idea of a family home. My tastes have evolved into something more traditional. I want it to have a sense of permanence.”
