Courtney McLeod Sparks Joy with her Harlem Apartment

Courtney McLeod Sparks Joy with her Harlem Apartment

For our Black Designing Women series, we interviewed interior designer Courtney McLeod, the founder, and principal of Right Meets Left Interior Design, a New York designer who hales from New Orleans. Now get a peek into her Harlem Apartment thanks to Architectural Digest Clever.

In the kitchen, the heart of the home, Courtney chose Harlem Toile de Jouy wallpaper by Sheila Bridges as a backsplash in the intimate kitchen. The wallpaper is a reimagining of a Toile de Jouy depicting Harlem and its community a beautiful reflection of the Harlem community right outside her window. 

Courtney shared that growing up in New Orleans and her city experiences are a tremendous source of inspiration for her design aesthetic. Her love for the vibrant shines through her choice to coat her walls in Dynamic Blue by Sherwin-Williams accented by colorful artwork and patterns. 

Courtney shares the best way to incorporate culture is to reference joyful memories and suggests adding an item from your childhood home into your space. For her, it is a Buddha head statue similar to one her mother used to have. The statue sits in the corner of her bedroom window seal. On the walls, she chose one of her favorite mural designs, Garden of Eden by Aux Abris, in a custom colorway to coordinate with her bedroom aesthetic.
