This artful home is located in Greenwich Village, New York, USA. It is originally an 1840’s Greek home that was then renovated by Axis Mundi, which managed to redesign it without erasing its historical style. The interiors are chic, colorful, and very modern—almost futuristic, even. There are many famous pieces of art exhibited in this house, such as paintings from Warhol, Haring, and Basquiat, and also surreal furniture elements from artists like Salvador Dali and Antonio Gaudi. These pieces of art, which comes from the owner of the house’s very own collection, serve well as decorations that make the house almost as beautiful and fascinating as an art museum.
The walls of the house are mostly white, which provides an excellent background for the colorful pieces of artor furniture that are placed against them. Several different materials are used for different parts of the house, such as the dark wood in the sitting room and bedroom, the warmer shade of wood in the hallway and staircase, simple white tiles in the dining room, and stone in the outdoor terrace. This interesting combination of materials gives different atmosphere to the rooms.
The living room looks elegant. It has a rather big black table that can well be a dining table.Five chairs surround the table: four black armchairs and one antique wooden chair with backrest that looks almost like a collection of antlers. Above the table is a glamorous pendant lamp. There is a fireplace beside the table, and above the fireplace hangs a painting.
The dining room looks futuristic and clean, but also cheerful. There’s a metal pendant lamp with an interesting twisted shape above the dining table, and the table itself has metal rods as its legs. The windows are brown, with rows of holes from which you can see the outside world on them. The kitchen also looks clean, although this room is not as colorful since all of its furniture is either white or made of light-colored wood.
Besides the modern feel or the playfully artful look of most the rooms, there are also parts of the house that look natural. The bathroom, for example, has tiles with beautiful line pattern and color that reminds us of sand in a beach. The outdoor terrace, obviously, is another place where we can see nature incorporated into the design of the house. It has stone floor, wooden walls, and quite a lot of green plants and flowers. Indeed, this house is very fascinating, not only for the famous arts in it, but also for the various atmospheres in its rooms that will never bore us.
