Carefully considered decor for an iconic New York City building

greenwich village apartment

Located within one of Emery Roth’s iconic New York City buildings, this Art Deco apartment balances history and modernity. Expressive art, color bursts, like cornflower-blue pillows and cherry-red accents, along with bold embellishments--intricate woodwork, woven seating and a slatted mid-century modern credenza--all blend in this designer’s home. But how do these elements harmonize? The space between the pieces is carefully considered so the rooms breathe, allowing each object to stand out. The result is an informed homage, updated with contemporary components.
