Hollister and Porter Hovey's apartment in Brooklyn is filled with small treasures and curiosities. All photos courtesy of Porter Hovey.
Peter Jenkins of Booz & Company recently hired the Hoveys to decorate his Williamsburg apartment. The Klepper kayak ($400) comes from an antique store in Beacon, New York.
Porter and Hollister complemented Jenkins's pre-owned table with chairs from Design Within Reach. The bar tray is from Williams-Sonoma but could pass for Cartier.
The guest room has a darker feel. The sisters paired chrome sawhorses from Williamsburg store Golden Calf with a glass tabletop Jenkins already owned to create the desk.
The Hovey sisters are obsessed with small, old-fashioned trinkets--like the toy soldiers that grace their mantel.
Step into one of Hollister and Porter Hovey's revamped apartments and you might wonder if you'd just walked into a Wes Anderson film. That's because the two-woman design firm has a distinct and extraordinary vision, somewhere between nostalgia and carnival.
After a childhood spent combing flea markets in Kansas City, the sisters originally transformed their own Brooklyn apartment into a careful hodgepodge of vintage Louis Vuitton suitcases, bearskin rugs and mixology bar carts. Their retro-chic style was such a hit (garnering note in House Beautiful and The New York Times) that they decided to share their talents with the rest of us.
Available for either a personal shopping consultation--say, for an uninspired guest room--or to completely make over a dated apartment (prices upon request), the Hoveys begin with an in-depth interview to ascertain your taste and needs.
Then they begin the fun part: sourcing furniture, accessories, art and ephemera from all their favorite haunts (vintage stores, Etsy shops, eBay, estate sales, etc.) before bringing their finds to you for final approval.
