A sunny Greenwich Village apartment


I loved this bright apartment in Greenwich Village - painted all white and bathed in bright light pouring in from the big windows. The orange chairs caught my eye right away - the perfect pop of colour in an otherwise neutral and rather subdued space. I really liked how simply the mantle was styled - an bold, oversized (and quite provocative) photograph in a simple frame, and two small snake plants potted on either side. Not really mind blowingly creative, in fact in looks like something you'd seen in a Club Monaco shop display but I think that's why I like it. It's bold, but simple and it totally works.




The rest of the space is left very simple and mainly in all white - giving a bit of breathing space for a beautiful collection of art, and the busy city outside.

Love that bench. And even though I'm orange challenged, those chairs are perfect in the space.

Orange chairs are a brilliant juxtaposition against the neutrals! Fantastic apartment.

We're all in agreement then - the orange chairs are fantastic! They were my favourite part of the space.
+ Caroline - must agree, am having a bit of an orange crush at the moment too :)

Yes the orange chairs def make the space (altho I think a townhouse in the West Village doesn't need much help!).

trying to figure out where to put our crib in our 500 sq foot place, then looking at this, makes me just a bit jealous. ;)
