European sensibilities in a West Village Brownstone

Posted on Thu, 16 Mar 2023 by KiM

A calming respite for a young family in Manhattan’s West Village — paying homage to their historic 1860s brownstone through warm textures, timelessly classic materials, and details that find refinement through the patina of living. Within the 1,600 square foot, three-story brownstone we were guided by European finishings and classic Belgian interiors, finding richness through a balance of natural materiality and embracing a harmonic moodiness. Seeking to add intentional texture and invite a calming cohesion, we integrated layers of natural materials, including raw & antique woods, earthy-hued heavy Belgian linens, antique brass detailing, and wall texture from Roman Clay.
Designed by And Studio Interiors, this home is breathtakingly beautiful. The drama of the black foyer, to the earthy textures in the living room, to the elegantly classic kitchen, this somewhat minimal home is really a masterpiece. Aside from needing to change out those dining chairs (so uncomfortable), every single other thing here is perfection.

Beautiful, Thank you

Beautiful but the photography does not help. This style that interiors photographers seem to favor lately sucks all the life out of the rooms. There is no joy in these photographs. Turns a beautiful environment into someplace I would not want to live.

Gladys Kravitz says:

I think many parts of this home are quite tranquil and lovely. Beautiful light filled kitchen where I believe this is a custom Living Island by Mathew Cox. I first saw one in the personal home of Amber Interiors. Would love to see more of the petite powder bath by the stairs.
I don’t care for how they chose to disguise the tv in the primary BR. It feels a bit clunky with the hinges sticking out.
