Home tour – apartment in Manhattan

Home tour to Lauren Moffatt’s apartment in Manhattan.  I really like how accessible the furnishings are – and especially how old and new are juxtaposed in a completely fresh and modern way. Lauren Moffatt’s casual approach to organizing her living space with found objects rather than buying lots of expensive furniture and décor works perfectly. Every of these photos has  something totally unexpected that caught my eye, yet the whole space feels totally cohesive.

After living on a 31-foot sailboat on the Hudson River for five years, fashion designer Lauren Moffatt made the move to a small one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. At the time, the concept of indoor plumbing alone was enough to turn her into a land lover! Twelve years later, with a husband, a child and another on the way, that one-bedroom apartment began to feel a little cramped. So the couple purchased the apartment below theirs and transformed the space into a three-bedroom home. The additional space allowed them to spread out and gave Lauren the opportunity to decorate without being as practical as one must be in a tiny space. For example, the staircase walls were designed to house some of her more random collections. To create a feeling of openness, they replaced the solid walls with glass casement doors, and the once empty kitchen that had been used as a guest room was turned back into a working kitchen.
