The house of Grammy Award-winning singer Jon Batiste and writer Suleika Jaouad’ feels like a jewellery box filled with mosaic tiles, jewel-toned light fixtures, and bronze objects. This beautiful brooklyn townhouse also shows us the beauty of upcycled, recycled, and thrifted pieces. Even in celebrity-owned homes, you will find furniture purchased via Facebook Marketplace.

The house is coined ‘Tunisiana’, for its aesthetic medley of Tunisian design and Louisiana-inspired soul. The ethos of the home’s aesthetic is “beautifully imperfect“, which is a wonderful notion to embrace in your own home’s imperfections.
