We all like to gawk sometimes, especially when it comes to interiors. Lucky for you, there's no need to scroll through New York's vast collection of homes. Our home critic has chosen their top fifteen. Let us know if you agree or not.
This former church is so groovy, it’s hard to know where to start. We’ll give you a general idea – every bedroom has its own impressive bath tub, there’s a swing in the kitchen, exposed brick walls are customary and there’s even an outdoor hot tub on the terrace. Wait, there’s also a sauna. Boom!
Bed-Stuy’s very own Quincy Calm. This industrial-chic home is decked out with vibrant (and sometimes provocative) photography and impressive architectural features - check out those crittall windows in the background.
“There's a starman waiting in the sky. He'd like to come and meet us. But he thinks he'd blow our minds."
Correct! This jaw-dropping, warehouse-inspired, and David Bowie-postered home has absolutely blown our minds. Can we move in already? Of course, Bowie & Friends is in uber-cool Williamsburg – what else is new?
We’ve seen a fair few converted churches, but we’ve never seen anything like Wonderland. The original architecture has been perfectly preserved, including the gallery, which now houses bohemian seating and funky artwork. Filled with trinkets from all over the world, to say this home is one-of-a-kind would be an understatement.
Reminiscent of a trendy start-up, this home doesn’t actually house any future tech-giants, just a tonne of space, exposed brick, and those loft windows we love and adore. What could be more New York than this?
Wow, we’ve made it to our top three.
The Living Loft is a minimalist haven decked out with our favourite accessory – plants on plants on plants on plants. Not only do plants look stunning and bring any home to life, they are said to have all sorts of powers, like reducing stress and anxiety, helping with sleep, and increasing productivity.
In second place is the spectacular Portrait of an Artist. This home is a prime example of a seamless integration of old and new – modern, molded armchairs (designed in Italy) sit comfortably next to the evocative brick walls that are so quintessentially New York. We love everything about this space.
Whether or not this is your style, there is no denying that waking up to a direct view of the iconic Chrysler building is the most energising way to start the day. Plus, this penthouse’s living area is as glamorous as they come.
