The owner of the luxury jewelry boutique Catbird lives in an oversized brownstone in New York City. The house was built in 1905. The additional renovation work took Vardi and her husband two years to complete. The business woman then took over the general design decisions and the impressive furnishings herself. Now you have the opportunity to take a look at the great interior design of the house.
The house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The biggest change in the floor plan was the integration of the kitchen and the dining and living rooms into one open spacious room. The result is a spacious and airy atmosphere, which the French doors only emphasize. The room leads out to the back yard, which has been equipped with artificial turf.
The interior includes a variety of antique pieces of furniture, as well as flea market finds and worn floor carpets in a vintage look. The hanging plants also create a relaxed atmosphere.
The owner also decided to keep the structure of the original wooden floors.
Once painted in pumpkin orange, the wooden floorboards in some rooms now look radiant white. In this way, an authentic used look is achieved.
Natural materials such as wood, marble and brick create a cozy atmosphere. On the mantelpiece in the living room we see personal souvenirs that add to the homely feeling.
The simple design of the bathroom reveals the practical properties of the homeowner. Not only in this room, but throughout the house you will find magnificent pieces of furniture and treasured objects that tell a lot of history.
Furnishing the sandstone house is a dream come true, says Ms. Vardi, exactly as she wanted it to be.
