As I was flipping through the pages of the latest issue (September 2012) of Elle Magazine, I came across a pleasant surprise on page 475. Featured all the way in the back of my favorite mag, was a lovely photo of Indie singer Solange Knowles and some of her closest friends.
Elle always surprises me.

The article reveals that Solange lives with her son Julez and music-video-director boyfriend, Alan Ferguson. The musican/dj/model lives in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn and moved from L.A. to be closer to her big sister Beyonce who had been prodding her for six years to move to NY.
Solange leads a pretty normal life, she walks her son Juelz to school everyday, cooks and invites her sister and Baby Blue over for dinner regularly. On the flip side, she hangs with a pretty cool crowd including fashion bloggers from Refinery 29, designers, artists and musicians.
Solange's home is just as eclectic as her wardrobe. The singer states, "I wanted to find a balance of having great colors and patterns but also a really livable, warm, serene space." and her home is just that. For entertaining, Solange's motto is "Just keep it chill."
Take a look at Solange's home. I think it's an accurate reflection of her style.
