Mindy Kaling’s NYC Apartment Makeover

Recently, we were lucky to partner with One Kings Lane to paint Mindy Kaling’s NYC apartment. Mindy had worked with designer Sally Gotfredson of The Studio at One Kings Lane to help design her space. Mindy was in LA for the majority of the project, but OKL was able to manage her east coast project! Talk about convenience.

When it came to the painting, Mindy wanted the apartment to be “…a reflection of [her] street style.” This included “great accents on top of a neutral palette.” Kaling 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 walls to create a bright, crisp surface. Sally could then create an impactful design on top of this backdrop. (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.
