BLIK IN OUR HOMES: CO-FOUNDER JERINNE NEILS

In August, we gave you a look inside Scott Flora’s home and this time we are back with the other Blik co-founder, Jerinne Neils. We asked Jerinne to give us a tour of her sleek, Venice apartment.

“After living in the infamous Oakwood section of Venice for 10 years, I moved into a new apartment complex in Venice designed by Kanner Architects with plenty of smooth walls perfect for Blik. My old place was where Blik was born. It was used as a testing ground for new products and materials and there was Blik everywhere – but not in a homey kind of way.”

“Now our office is where we do our testing so I bring only a decal or two home to live with for a time; I like the mix of Blik with other accessories and artwork. Right now I’m living with one wall decal (Mulher Skull which is so creepily cute, I like how you only notice them looking at you when the door is closed) and two Pattern Wall Tiles – Psychedelic Garden and Fishwall.

I’m thrilled with the Pattern Wall Tiles and how easy they are to install and the way they can completely change the look and feel of a room. Fishwall really warmed up my living area; I love it. And yes, that’s me in the Fishwall product shots.”

Next to Fishwall in Jerinne’s living room, your eyes gaze up to the striking painting by LA artist Liz Brizzi. The bookshelf is sprinkled with various objects from Africa and Thailand. As a former food editor, she has (what looks like to us) an extensive cookbook collection, although according to her, that’s just what’s left of it.

That leads us to her kitchen, where “He is not hurt badly” by LA artist Walt Hall rests next to her stove and two African figurines. In Jerinne’s bedroom, a Psychedelic Garden wall tile frames her bed. We are digging artist Gene Guynn’s “Catching Bullets” on the nightstand. And as she mentioned, Mulher Skull peeks out from her bedroom sliding door.

Stroll down the hallway and you’ll see her Amy Ruppel collection. The pieces were the inspiration for working with Amy on a line of wall decals. Jerinne first came across Amy’s work through a mutual retailer, Velocity Art & Design, six years ago and has been collecting her work ever since. “Amy is an artist close to my heart, because of our shared Portland roots and she represents the transition from owning art to then working with that artist on a line for Blik.”

Thanks for the tour, Jerinne! We’ll be back in January with another chapter of Blik in our homes.
