Mindy Kaling’s NYC Apartment Makeover

Recently, we were lucky enough to partner with One Kings Lane to lend a painting hand on a spring redesign of the fabulous Mindy Kaling’s NYC apartment. Mindy had worked directly with designer Sally Gotfredson of The Studio at One Kings Lane to help envision her space, and although Mindy herself was in L.A. for the majority of the project, Sally and the pros at OKL were able to expertly manage her project from the East Coast!

When it came to the painting portion of the renovation, Mindy wanted the apartment to be “…a reflection of [her] street style – great accents on top of a neutral palette.” She wanted statement fixtures, like chandeliers, eye-catching artwork, and brass accents. And she wanted all of these on a fresh, clean palette for maximum effect.

To achieve this, Paintzen kept it simple. We supplied white paint in a matte finish for all the ceilings and certain walls to create a bright, crisp surface over which Sally could create an impactful design. (Get the look with Delicate White!)

Rather than feeling bland, these fresh and clean white walls made a huge difference with this makeover… and were the ideal option for Mindy’s Nolita home. It laid the foundation for all the beautiful, bold, and perfectly “Mindy” additions that One Kings Lane had in store for her home.
