Designer Steven Gambrel Returns a Greenwich Village Row House to Its Historic Roots

Designer Steven Gambrel Returns a Greenwich Village Row House to Its Historic Roots

Although some people might argue that Greenwich Village has sold its soul to commercial interests—just take a stroll down Bleecker Street—countless artists, writers, and musicians still make their homes in its historic row houses. The four-story redbrick charmer on these pages is a rescue, lifted from years of abuse by loving owners and the talents of designer Steven Gambrel, whose office is only a few blocks away, off Sheridan Square.

O'Neill Rose Architects Revives a Faded Townhouse on the Upper East Side

O'Neill Rose Architects Revives a Faded Townhouse on the Upper East Side

Sometimes, creating a suitably modern home requires turning back the clock. That’s what O’Neill Rose Architects did when they renovated a landmarked Romanesque Revival townhouse for a couple with three school-aged daughters. Like many city brownstones, the formerly grand five-story structure had suffered the indignities of being chopped up by developers into floor-through apartments over the years. “There were something like 20 different renovations over the course of the building’s life. We wanted to recapture its elegance, but create a totally contemporary home.”

Cricket Burns' Carnegie Hill Home is Filled with Crush-Worthy Finds

Cricket Burns' Carnegie Hill Home is Filled with Crush-Worthy Finds

For fashion editor and new-media maven Cricket Burns, life is a mix of color, memories, Mick Jagger, and Chanel. A veteran of magazine publishing, Burns has spent her career sniffing out style on a daily basis. When it came to redoing her present digs—a three-bedroom apartment in a century-old building that she shares with her family—Burns was all too happy to paint it with her characteristic broad brushstrokes.

Michelle Smith Studio MRS Interiors Greenwich Village Apartment Tour

A native of Morgan City, Louisiana, Smith has been collecting antiques and furniture her entire life, and many of her most beloved pieces can be found throughout her new digs. “I was renovating this apartment while working at a big law firm, and after leaving work each night and checking on the status, I realized that my passion for drawing cabinet elevations and choosing bath fixtures surpassed my interest in reviewing litigation documents.”

A 19th-Century Millbrook Farmhouse Gets Tricked Out for 21st-Century Living

A 19th-Century Millbrook Farmhouse Gets Tricked Out for 21st-Century Living

The relaxing Millbrook, New York, retreat where Manhattanites Andrea Van Beuren, founder and artistic director of the cinematic festival newportFILM; her husband, Roger Kass, an entertainment lawyer and film producer; and their three children spend weekends is a bona fide 19th-century farmhouse. Renovated and expanded with whitewashed perfection by designer Farnaz Mansuri and her Manhattan-based firm, De-Spec, the place is high on charm and original details.

Tilton Fenwick Puts a Fresh Spin on an Artist's Loft in SoHo

Tilton Fenwick Puts a Fresh Spin on an Artist's Loft in SoHo

With their trademark being a fresh, contemporary take on traditional design, decorators Suysel dePedro Cunningham and Anne Maxwell Foster made their name by employing bold colors and patterns in even the most mundane spaces. Then came a third leap of faith: a client who had just purchased an artist’s loft downtown and wanted to turn it into a warm, kid-friendly environment for her young family.

Inside Painter Robert Kelly's Bowery Studio

Inside Painter Robert Kelly's Bowery Studio

The timeworn but still elegant façade of Beethoven Hall, a circa-1860 meeting hall and community center just off the Bowery, hardly evokes the archetype of the quintessential New York artist’s loft. But once inside the live-work space of abstract painter Robert Kelly, you are suddenly immersed in the now. Or at least that’s how it looks on first glance.
