Angie Mar is the executive chef at The Beatrice Inn and a visit to her home, just as a meal enjoyed at the West Village restaurant, brings on feelings of warmth and a healthy dose of joie de vivre.
Angie's style is eclectic and her interests diverse and whether she's antique shopping or putting her enviable knife skills to work on a beautiful meal, she infuses everything she does with her personality. In her home, she surrounds herself with the things she loves, making it a welcoming atmosphere for anyone who drops by for a visit.
Apartment Therapy Survey:
My Style: French Bohemian, New American Classic thrown in here and there
Inspiration: My travels to Spain and France
Favorite Element: The wall of windows overlooking Central Park
Biggest Challenge: Curating items that were harmonious. My tastes tend to vary greatly so finding a balance to mix everything in together was sometimes challenging.
What Friends Say: They love that my apartment is always homey and inviting. It’s a place of dinner parties and Sunday relaxing.
Proudest DIY: I collect wooden wine boxes from the restaurant and sand, stain, and lacquer them.
Biggest Indulgence: Kitchen knives. I’m a Chef, so of course I have a collection of knives for my restaurant, however I love collecting one-of-a-kind knives for my home, made by artisans when I travel.
Best Advice: When you find a great piece, pick it up. I find flea markets to be the best and most inspiring when I’m looking for artwork for my home.
