Tour A Relaxing Yet Sophisticated Town House in Upper East

We are first attracted by this house because of its color scheme and then the cool textiles and iconic furniture. The town house is owned by textile scion Ashley Stark Kenner and her husband Nick, founder and CEO of Just Salad. The landmarked 19th-century building had a lot going for it—generous dimensions, a deep backyard, and, a rarity among town houses, lots of light. But at their first meeting with New York–based Lichten Architects, talk quickly shifted to “gut renovation.” Here are our favorites after the renovation.
