As the star of FX Network’s critically acclaimed series The Americans, Keri Russell plays a Russian spy who tries to uncover secrets during the Cold War. Fittingly, Elle Décor magazine took a peek into Russell’s private life in a recent issue, with a feature on the Brooklyn brownstone she shares with her husband, Shane Deary, and their young son, River. The son of a contractor, Deary did much of the renovations, using mostly recycled materials. When it was time to decorate, Russell chose neutral pieces that wouldn’t detract from the beauty of her husband’s work.
If you love Russell’s calm Brooklyn oasis, we’ve got the look. Take a peek at these easy-to-live-with pieces that mirror Russell’s style:
Russell’s living room features linen-upholstered armchairs by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. Our Mila Chairs have the same clean lines. Covered in grey and tan houndstooth check, the contemporary look is crisp and classic.
Trunk End Table
Between the chairs, Russell has an end table made of reclaimed wood. Our Edgemont Trunk End Table offers the same distressed feel, providing a nice contrast to the contemporary look of the seating. With three drawers for storage, it’s crafted out of dark brown leather and accented with chocolate-colored trim.
A loveseat, placed parallel to the chairs, provides more seating but its scale doesn’t overpower Russell’s room. Our Carly Loveseat coordinates well with the Mila Chairs. The understated piece in a neutral fabric has rolled arms, button details and straight back for a tailored look.
The tufted ottoman in Russell’s living room provides a bit of traditional to an otherwise contemporary space. While our Illusions Square Cocktail Ottoman has different proportions, the effect is similar. In a beautiful mocha-grey, the piece adds a punch of color as well as additional seating when needed.
Russell’s husband made the mirror that hangs above the fireplace using reclaimed wood. Not handy? Save the elbow grease and select our beveled version, with ribbed gold leaf finished frame.
The ivory rug in Russell’s space continues the room’s feel of softness and begs you to remove your shoes and relax. Our Bliss Ivory Rug will do the same thing. With its hand-woven construction and plush two-inch depth, it provides a perfect backdrop and lets the neutral furnishings stand out.
