The September issue of Traditional Home, one of our go-to shelter publications, is a must-read for its piece on our co-founder and Creative Director Kevin McLaughlin. The profile takes readers into his Upper East Side brownstone and details its transformation from historic rowhouse to the modern five-story family home that it is today.

From the day McLaughlin and his wife Barbara bought the place in 2002 it has been a true labor of love. The McLaughlin’s entrusted their renovations to Doug Larson, an architect who has been designing the McLaughlin stores for over 20 years.

Both parties specific tastes and lofty visions have created a truly spectacular home that manages to combine the comforts of everyday life with touches of the unexpected, much like the way J.McLaughlin clothes do season after season.

It is not uncommon to see a top in a print borrowed from a throw pillow (Can you spot the inspiration for our fall Somi sweater?) or the latest handbag in the same saddle leather as a dining room chair. It is a genuine case of life imitating fashion and vice versa.
