Fans react as Lily Allen and David Harbor show off their Brooklyn ‘clown house’ with $9,000 chandeliers

David Harbor and Lily Allen have shown off their Brooklyn “clown house,” which has a $9,000 chandelier in it, prompting fans to praise their space.

The couple gave a tour of their brownstone, located in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood, for a feature on the cover of Architectural Digest‘s March issue. The pair hired designer Billy Cotton and architect Ben Bischoff to create the home, which has been decorated with Mylar wallpaper and crystal chandeliers.

For the AD photoshoot, Allen and Harbor posed in their garden-themed living room, which featured multi-colored wallpaper and blue drapes on the walls. Some of the furniture in the room was green velvet including two chairs and a sofa.

The singer also described her home’s kitchen area as the “beating heart of the house”. In addition to all-white shelves and cabinets, the kitchen island’s skirt, banquette, and chair were all made of check fabric. The space was completed with a variety of items, including a $9,169 chandelier by Ralph Lauren and $280 pink and white dinner plates.

Allen wore a red Valentino dress for the photoshoot and posed in the main bathroom/sitting room. The space includes a pink door and tub, coral colored chairs, and light blue wallpaper with pink flowers on it. The primary bedroom also features some bright colors, such as light blue wallpaper and a bed covered in pink silk.

The musicians joked about her style and how her family feels about it, adding to the publication: “My kids call this the clown house, but they say it in the most loving way.”

Allen is the mother of two, Ethel, 11, and Marine, 10, whom she shares with ex-husband Sam Cooper.

On social media, fans have praised the home and expressed their desire to live there.


“Lily Allen and David Harbor’s Italian nonna kitchen is my dream kitchen (in fact their whole house is my dream house),” another added.

A third said: “Lily Allen’s house on insta is truly amazing.”

Other people applauded the couple’s decorating skills, one of which wrote: “Lily Allen and David Harbor’s brooklyn townhouse is a rare [win] for rich people’s interiors.”

Architectural Digest also shared a video of the couple giving a tour of the house, prompting fans to praise their relationship.

“A house ain’t a home without love stored in its walls. You can feel how much love they have for each other. So sweet,” one person commented on the YouTube video.

“They are just such a cool couple and I love their quirky style. I was not expecting how floral some of their interior choices are, but I think they seem to be very attuned and open to each other’s tastes,” another added.

Elsewhere in the interview with Architectural DigestCotton said the couple’s goal for their home was to look like it was inherited from “a kooky Italian miss with fabulous taste,” while still embodying the designers of a modern Brooklyn townhouse. Allen then praised her team for helping bring the finished product to life.

“I’ve always been interested in interiors, and I’ve always done my own home. But this was a big undertaking, and I needed help. Together, Billy and I tried to reach for something weird and wonderful.”

Harbor credited his spouse for her design skills, adding: “Lily is someone who lives with color in a deeper way than most. Her taste is bold, silly, fun, eccentric—it’s exciting.”
