Home Tour: Kerry Ciardelli

A few months back I “met” the talented designer and shop owner Kerry Ciardelli via email. Kerry, a self-taught designer, owns the Minneapolis based boutique VICTORY. A purveyor of French linens, etched glass, nineteenth-century primitive paintings, Christopher Spitzmiller lamps and Anna Weatherley fine porcelain, VICTORY is a Mecca for those searching out eclectic and elegant flea market finds from London, Paris and Italy.

Kerry’s work imbues beauty, elegance and a love of all things vintage. I was thrilled when she paid a surprise visit to the SFERRA booth in NYC at the International Gift Fair earlier this month. She was as stylish and gracious as I had imagined and so is the home she has fashioned. Enjoy the tour.

This home is full of very beautiful pieces which, at times, can come across as cold. She does an outstanding job of creating a warm and inviting feel. I think the kitchen is my fav! Lovely!
