The latest issue of Sophisticated Living magazine takes us inside a dazzling 10,000 square foot Ladue home designed by April Jensen of ADJ Interiors. April worked with St. Louis architect Bill Cover and home builder Johnson Development Company from the start of construction. Building upon a classic foundation of soft greys, marble and plaster, April infused this new construction home with brilliant forms, finishes and saturated color.
“Interior designer April Jensen approaches lighting a house the exact same way a New York City woman accessorizes her favorite little black dress.”
“The dining room with its punches of chartreuse on the walls and chair is functional, fun and fine.”
“I feel like a bedroom can be its own thing, its own color. It’s a private space but we still wanted it to be part of the whole.”
“It was important to have a few areas that seemed a little more masculine so we added the wire, leather and brass accents. The brass we used was like antique, worn brass that already seems to have a patina.”
