Get The Look Of Julianne Moore's New York City Townhouse
Every so often we come across a celebrity home makeover that stops us in our tracks. Such is the case with A-list actress and self proclaimed "design junkie" Julianne Moore's recently renovated New York City townhouse. Her gorgeous living room, in particular, is a real show stopper with Farrow and Ball's pitch black walls, large Moroccan rug, rich velvet sofa, vintage leather chairs, and an oversized globe lantern pendant that hangs from the tall molded ceiling. And if you've seen this month's Architectural Digest, you know exactly what we're talking about!
Today we asked one of our talented Decorist designers Natalie Skramstad to take over the blog to recreate Julianne's designer look so you can shop your favorite pieces.... and pick up a few living room ideas for your own home while you're at it.
In the heart of New York's West Village, Julianne Moore brings new life to her beloved townhouse. With a love for architecture and design, Julianne recently renovated her home by moving walls and reshuffling some of the rooms. What was once a historic townhouse, the five-story building had been carved up into apartments, however the original front-and-back-parlors were intact, as were the floors, shutters, fireplaces, and staircase. There was enough character left that she could bring the house back to its original Greek Revival roots without destroying the heart and soul of the building.
For the interiors, she wanted a homey, organic look with decorative treasures that evidence a distinct fondness for organic forms, warm materials, found objets, and vintage mid-century lines.
Neutral Color scheme
It’s apparent that Julianne appreciates contrast. Her main color scheme is black, white, and shades of brown. She incorporates pops of color with large art work and greenery throughout. Staying with a neutral scheme and adding in color through décor, art, and other accessories is a great way to make your space stand out.
The live edge coffee table, the natural wood stool, and the shag Moroccan rug all offer a modern, rustic feel to the space. All of these elements play a key role in adding a variety of texture in the home and help create a space that feels cozy and inviting.
The scale of the light fixture really stands out in this New York City townhouse, allowing it to be a main focal point in the space. It's large oversize scale helps ground the seating area and makes the living space feel larger.
You can see Julianne has been collecting decorative accents, which really helps make her space feel complete and true to her personal style. Adding in found objets and curated pieces throughout a space helps to create character and authenticity to a home.
