Sarah's Classic Modern in the West Village

House Call

Name: Sarah
Location: West Village, NYC

I would describe my home as classic modern. Most of my walls and furniture are white and serve as a canvas for bold colored accessories and graphic patterns. My apartment has no natural charm or beautiful architectural details, so I had to create an inviting, interesting and relaxing home from scratch.

I have mixed in antique and vintage items for balance - an old wooden school chair, a gilded flea market frame-turned-mirror, a tole chandelier spouting white lilies. The Louis XV armchairs that sit in my living room epitomize my style. When I found them in a junk shop, the chairs were painted olive green with chartreuse wide-wale corduroy upholstery. After being stripped, stained and reupholstered in Hable Construction's Lemon Rope, they are now a bright, contemporary twist on timeless design. I have taken two years to fill my apartment with things I love and now I would love to share my home with the Apartment Therapy community who provided me with great inspiration along the way.

Thanks, Sarah!
