Domestic Space is a blog by Jeanne Rondeau, mom to Ada and Josephine. Jeanne is a designer, painter, crafter and now staying-at-home mom. A former shoe designer, Jeanne chose to leave work in Manhattan and stay home after Ada was born. The challenge of continuing to be creative, and to integrate the making of art with the raising of children inspired Domestic Space. This blog is to document the projects, daily joys and the beauty of our domestic space.
Our family moved into an old wood frame home in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn in August 2011. We searched for almost two years for the perfect house and finally found one with the right combination of preserved details and potential projects. We are slowly renovating while we live here, and the blog will detail the projects as we learn to live and work with our domestic space. Our aesthetic tends towards a combination of minimalism and vintage and we are always on hunt for the perfect vintage farmhouse sinks, 1940s appliances, cast iron tubs, etc., etc…We look forward to the challenges of working with this old house and delight in the surprises we have found so far. We invite you to follow along with us on this journey and we always appreciate hearing from you.
