In the middle of the colourful East Village, the cradle of New York’s creative scene, bohemia lives on in this 19th century brick townhouse. Each floor features 25 feet of expansive space, soaring ceilings with dramatic archways and moulding, and herringbone-patterned hardwood floors. Neoclassical interiors are dressed with the irreverent hand of a modern-day gypsy, with walls covered in hand-painted vintage wallpaper, and textiles culled from vagabond travels through Turkey, Nicaragua, Morocco, France and Italy.
Your hostess is a fashion industry veteran. Apart from enjoying her home with her children, she teaches art to the homeless and hosts the occasional clandestine play in her parlour.
La vie de bohème
An eclectic foyer sets the tone: a classical piano and playful confetti-covered sphere, with one wall bedecked in vintage Japanese wallpaper and another boasting large-scale modern art. In the open living area, a tufted charcoal sofa, floral settee and kilim rug mingle underneath a chandelier fit for a flower child: branches of bittersweet entangled with a string of twinkling lights.
In the dining area, a mid-century modern Danish dining set is unexpectedly joined by a pair of stools dip-dyed in fluorescent paint. The long galley kitchen, fitted with multiple stove burners and boasting large swathes of counter space, is equipped to feed an army of beatniks. On the third floor, the master’s bedroom is Velvet Underground-meets-Versailles, with brooding dark walls mixed with delicate antique furniture. Three baths and five bedrooms are spread throughout the third and fourth floors, each one evoking an East Village boho archetype: the musician, the man of letters, the flower child, and the artist.
