Living in the world today we are faced with the challenge of mixing new and old together. This mixture can either be a toxic mess or a wonderful collaboration that not only tells a story but freshens things up a bit! When it comes to design, buying an older house/condo/apartment and trying to modernize it can be challenging but it can definitely be done. Architectural Digest recently posted an article about a beautiful town home in Greenwich Village that needed to be updated while still keeping its charm.
Architectural firm Leroy Street Studio and interior designer Christine Markatos Lowe took on the task of creating an up to date design while keeping the Greek Revival structure that was built in 1842 in tact for the family of six. This town home is so bright and inviting with hints of distressed furniture and gorgeous architectural details…. take a look!
The fireplace and chair rail detail that was kept in the design really gives the essence of the Greek Revival Structure that was created years ago. By keeping the room bright white and adding pieces that were both contemporary and historically inspired created a flowing design.
Do you love this town home just as much as we do!? We searched high and low to give you our spin on this design with pieces that are currently available to help you get inspired!
