More Inside Artist Jorge Pardo's Transformed Bushwick Carriage House

by David Stewart

Pardo’s bedroom, one of three on the second level, is simply furnished with Ikea shelving units and Linoto linens.

Pardo replaced the existing staircase with a spiral design in scarlet; the walls are painted in a hand-mixed combination of Behr colors.

He added a garage door, now artfully graffitied, to the home, which was originally a carriage house.

In the open kitchen and dining area, the table and cabinetry are by Ikea and the range is by Bertazzoni ; the rear window wall looks out onto a courtyard created in collaboration with liz Campbell Kelly of Hudson Garden Studio.

For the main living space of his home in Bushwick, Brooklyn, artist Jorge Pardo conceived signature lamps and splashes of tilework; the painting is also by Pardo.

For the primary bath, as throughout the house, tiles of Pardo’s own imagination were produced at Cerámica Suro in Guadalajara, Mexico; sink by Ikea.

A Seth Price artwork hangs above the tub in Pardo’s bedroom.

The hall displays framed posters from Pardo’s 2008–2009 group show at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

Plants flourish in a corner of the sun-filled living space.
