Home Tour—an Elegantly Layered New York Apartment

 

In the middle of the week, we all look for a little bit inspiration to carry on. We came across designer Lilse McKenna’ New York apartment and truly amazed by how she re-arranged the overall layout to maximize storage while still keeping a high style.  Let’s take a look at her NYC apartment home together.

The red vintage velvet sofa is aN original piece. We are glad  that Lilse still keeps the way it is. And she balanced the bright red color with a lot of blue and white in this room. By doing so, she is not only able to  make the room feel bright and airy, but also able to showcase the fabulous artwork on the wall and patterned fabric on the throw pillows, lamp shades and ottoman cover as well.
