This 1853 Greenwich Village house recently got a facelift and new bones. Yep, the historical façade was restored according to the books while the interiors were gutted and reinforced with a new steel structure that allowed for a more open layout.

Observe the small details that make the interiors like the cove lighting where the ceiling meets the exterior walls, the flush threshold between the bathroom and wood flooring, and the gorgeous rectilinear sinks.

The offset fireplace is a charming minimalist move in the bedroom.

And, I love this white marble backsplash with grey veining climbing up the walls.

      Glad you enjoyed it! At first I wasn’t sure if I should post this project because it is more restrained.. but I think that’s commendable in design. Sometimes it’s fun to go over the top but I think lasting design comes from very good editing. Do you agree?
