Property: A 5-storey town house near Greenwich Village, New York, with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a playroom/basketball court, loft-style kitchen-diner and terrace.
Light fittings that double as art installations provide an artistic touch to the long, narrow hallway. Rough concrete panels contrast with the intricate mosaic tiles, setting the tone for the rest of the house.

In the kitchen, a decadent streak reveals itself. A Venetian chandelier, bought in Nice, hangs above the island unit, out of reach of the kids, and providing a glamorous edge.

At the opposite end of the living area is a spacious kitchen-diner and floor-to-ceiling windows. The space is filled with statement retro pieces.

The master bedroom is a tranquil space, flooded with light from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The antique bed, over 100 years old, vies for attention with an avant-garde chair.
The chair sculpture is by Fernando & Humberto Campana for Edra, available at Chaplins (opens in new tab). The pendant lights are from a flea market in Paris.

To maintain the calming and relaxed feel of this minimalist bedroom, accessories are kept simple, with only the bedposts and calendar adding definition to the all-white space.

The designer-chic element of this house is continued into the bathroom, with a pebble bath and rich wood flooring. Amid busy family life, the owners felt the only time they had to admire art was in the bathroom, so they put their favourite piece above the bath!

All the children's bedrooms have desks so the kids can do homework. The owners hope it will subtly get them into good work habits, and make them feel creative!
