Classical architect Gil Schafer recently sold his New York apartment and I thought it would be fun to take a look inside. Listed by Compass, the home was described as a “meticulously crafted one bedroom parlor floor-thru on the Gold Coast of Greenwich Village.” Schafer had the apartment meticulously reconstructed in the Greek Revival style and the result is spectacular. If you don’t already own Gil’s books The Great American House and A Place to Call Home, I can’t recommend them highly enough. I have been consulting them often as we plan renovations and decoration of our new home.
The living room boasts 13-foot ceilings and tall French doors.
Another angle of the living room and its recessed crown moldings.
A richly hued suzani covers the white sofa.
These doors are hand-painted and polished faux-grain mahogany (!!!) with cobalt blue crystal knobs and custom patinated brass hardware by E.R. Butler & Co.
Abstract artwork hangs above the wood-burning fireplace. I love the mantel in black scagliola with greek key detail.
A yummy chocolate brown hallway with a sisal runner leads to the kitchen.
A lovely iron canopy bed takes pride of place in the bedroom.
Another view of the bedroom leading to the dressing room.
The spacious walk-in dressing room includes mirror-paneled custom cabinetry and E.R. Butler hardware. It also hides a Miele washer and dryer.
The striking Nero Marquina shower.
