Jane Street Charm
A classic West Village townhouse received a gut renovation and reconceptualized interior. Nineteenth-century origins reverberate in elegant new interior millwork, gleaming brass hardware, and the narrow curve of the stair. Venetian plaster walls reflect the light and imply expansiveness. Contemporary art and lighting are at home alongside historically accurate elements. The sleek kitchen offsets a rustic farm table and chairs dressed in houndstooth. Each level of the house is rich in detail and materials — limestone flooring; aubergine Fortuny curtains; a Moorish headboard — yet accommodates a lively young family.
