Best Of All Worlds

Some interiors are designed with the intention to excite, while others are designed to soothe.  This stunning townhouse in lower Manhattan, by James Huniford, somehow manages to do both.  The subtle palette and abundance of unique objects work in harmony to create a quiet and compelling energy. Throw in the fact that this New York City home features traditional architecture, outdoor spaces and working fireplaces…it really is the best of all worlds.

  4. I really like how the spaces show that modern can be inviting and warm (though the fireplace probably helps with the warm quite a bit).
