West Village Brownstone

This quintessential West Village brownstone felt like home from the minute we saw it. Built in 1899, the house is only 18 feet wide so designing and furnishing it was a 180-degree challenge from the spacious home we left in Los Angeles. We brought in a lot of texture and detail to bring the home to life: from grass cloth wallpaper, antique mantels and vintage light fixtures to plaster finishes and a custom double-height oak bookcase – a feat of engineering by Hetman LLC – which provides valuable storage and is also a much-talked-about centerpiece.
