Designer Marie-Christine McNally Creates a Sleek, Seductive, Utterly Urban Bachelor Pad in NoHo

For a brief time, people priced out of SoHo and Greenwich Village found happy refuge in the former factory and industrial spaces lining NoHo’s somewhat gritty streets, a loose grid that was never really on the map until suddenly it was, marketed heavily by real estate companies and given over, seemingly overnight, to a burgeoning crowd of young professionals looking for a place to call home.

Designer Amy Lau Reinvents a Historic Townhouse in the Heart of Greenwich Village

Maybe it’s the thrice-weekly yoga that helps Amy Lau recharge. Or the twice-daily meditation sessions, or just a fierce love for what she does.

Design Writer and Editor Linda O'Keeffe Reimagines a 1920's Sears Roebuck Kit House in High Falls, New York

I grew up street-smart in London. I window-shopped on my way to school; my favorite toy was a cash register; traffic noise lulled me to sleep. In other words, I was a confirmed city kid. The countryside? Definitely alien territory. As an adult, I’ve always lived and preferred to vacation in cities, and my work has often kept me on the road. Then a few years ago I realized that my NoHo apartment was almost becoming like another hotel room—a pit stop in my peripatetic life.

In Chelsea's Walker Tower, Designer David Scott Turns an Art-Filled Apartment into a Showcase of Sumptuous Decor

"When I initially met my client,” decorator David Scott recalls, “he had a loose-leaf file of all his art and furniture. I was deeply impressed and happy to be working for someone who was so organized. The art itself was edgier than I am used to working with, which was another level of excitement for me. It was an opportunity to learn.” Located in Chelsea’s Walker Tower, which was built in 1929 and converted from commercial space to 50 multimillion-dollar lofts in 2013, the apartment not only has considerable art, but also breathtaking views both south and west.

Decorator Greg Shano Gives a Doctor’s Bachelor Pad in Chelsea a Clean Bill of Health

Bret Rudy's Chelsea apartment is little more than a crash pad, the 620-square-foot studio was bare-bones to the core, with stark white walls, scant furnishings, and just a few pieces of carefully chosen artwork. When he was ready to take the plunge, he enlisted his friend Greg Shano, a decorator, to make it over.

A Pair of World Travelers from the West Coast Stop Off in New York—and Decide to Stay Awhile

A career that takes one to international locales might sound exotic, but it isn’t always everything it’s cracked up to be. For one San Francisco couple, business as usual meant frequent travel to such far-flung destinations as the Far East and Europe, and weekends spent together became the exception, not the rule.

For designer Linherr Hollingsworth, no job is too small, big, daunting, or beneath her, even when it comes to a project started by another decorator and then abandoned halfway through. “We think of our firm as problem solvers,” Hollingsworth says of the West Village pied-à-terre she polished to completion for clients who have a primary residence in Connecticut.

An Apartment in U.N. Plaza Gets Interpreted Anew by Interior Designer Victoria Klein

Before finding her calling as an interior designer, Victoria Klein ventured down a few other creative paths. Architecture came first, followed by set design (via a brief stint in Hollywood) and later fashion design, which Klein jumped into upon resettling in her native New York.
