Until the 19th century, on the site of the Noho area in New York, there was a botanical garden, and it was much later that this part of the city became a sought after residential location. This modern bachelor’s apartment is located just here. Designer Sean Litchfield played with color contrasts making the home look and feel truly masculine thanks to brutal furniture pieces and metal decor. Some bright details such as juicy paintings and colorful books also were added. Cool and stylish!
Perhaps Nicky Hilton is not so often on the front pages of glossy magazines, like her older sister Paris, but still, she is very famous personality.

We are used to the fact that lofts in Soho, the most creative area of New York, are all former art workshops or fully industrial interiors with brick walls. This apartment is somewhat different. Here, the tone is set by vintage elements, prints, paintings, and photographs. Despite the simple and light base, the furniture and décor here are of most vivid and unusual colors. Such an interior certainly cannot be called universal, on the contrary, it is very personal, creative and extraordinary, like the atmosphere reigning in the legendary Soho.
When Mitchell and Samantha were looking for a house in New York, they immediately told estate agents to look for a house for renovation, as they did not want to “pay for someone’s design.” Therefore, when they found the old boardinghouse, which for many years stood empty, they realized it’s the clean sheet where the couple can make a dream home to their liking. And after almost two years of works, they finally got their long-awaited home – personal, a bit bold and extravagant. Terrace on the roof was an excellent bonus!
We could admire New York brownstones forever as they are so beautiful both outside and inside. It’s a famous symbol of the city, these cozy facades and stairs leading to the entrance have repeatedly appeared in big and not really Hollywood movies. Today we have another magnificent townhouse in the popular West Village area, which captivates from the first photo. Enjoy!
In New York, it’s hard to surprise anybody with just a good hotel with a quality design, because here people have seen everything. But the newly opened Beekman Hotel rightfully took a special place among the diversity of hotels of this trendiest city in the world. The fact is that the building itself has a great cultural value and an important historical heritage for New York, and recently it was officially designated city landmark. In reimagined interiors designer Martin Brudnizki tried to reflect and highlight the rich 135-year history of this unique place.
When the owners of this spacious residence were looking for a suitable home in Manhattan for their large family, all the options they viewed were either too small in size or with a bad layout. But they found a great solution: it was decided to buy two neighboring lofts and combine them into the big one. A magnificent brick wall with arched doorways became the main feature of the new dwelling, besides it conveniently divides the space into public and private areas. Great project!
Interiors with bright accents or wallpaper with bold prints fade in comparison with this extraordinary apartment in New York. Here, not just styles, textures and images are mixed, but the apartment has its own unique character and even a sense of humor. A strict kitchen with a marble island and immediately a bedroom right in the living room, a working place as in an office, but with a fluffy pink chair, a caricature of the “Mona Lisa” and a picture of puppet shoes. In this home, there was a place for creativity, functionality and freedom. This design is not for everyone, but certainly in a positive way!
The famous American fashion designer Jenna Lyons is now at the creative crossroads: last spring she left the position of a creative director in the J.Crew, where she spent more than 20 years, and has not yet decided what to do next. In this time of searching Jenna decided to redesign her beautiful SOHO apartment, which now is a mixture of feminine eclecticism with notes of glamorous modernism. Looks gorgeous!
Not everyone likes classic and retro interiors due to their rigor and seriousness. But the beauty of design is that in any style you can add a bit of irony and catchy memorable strokes. This is what happened with this apartment in New York. Here the elegant fireplace neighbors with super-bright paintings, a marble table with a screen with palm trees, and ancient portraits in gilt frames complement pineapples and pictures of circles. And do not forget, of course, about the skateboard in the shower. In general, your home can be anything: ironic, funny, strict, pompous – the main thing is that you like it!
