Inside a Brooklyn Home Filled with Antique Finds

The founders of State bags have a thing for 1stdibs and color-coordinated bookshelves.

There are certain people who have a knack for decorating. We enter their homes and find ourselves looking around in awe. Such was the case when we stepped inside Scot and Jacqueline Tatelman’s Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, home a few months ago. The couple are the brains behind State Bags, a one-for-one bag company in the United States, which hand-delivers a backpack full of tools to a child in need for every bag sold.

While Jacqueline did use the help of an interior decorator, she was involved in the entire process and chose all of the unique one-off pieces that accent the home—think a light pink velour sofa and a seashell chandelier. As the couple walked us through their space, the creative duo talked about their first piece of art, color-coordinated bookshelves, and why they fill their home with encouraging signage.

ST: “My dad is a big drummer, and that was my entire childhood—doing homework on the third floor of our house, and in the basement my dad was wailing away for hours. Our son is kind of getting into it. He more so just likes destruction and noise, so that's a good combination for drums.”
