We headed over to Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan for a tour of Malorie’s apartment, and when we say her place was a true treat to visit, we mean it! It felt like a lesson on layering, color theory, and curation, right out of an interior design magazine.
As you’ll see, Malorie has a great eye for vintage and unique pieces. Her style is eclectic with a bohemian twist.
Watch for: The salon room! A rarity in NYC, and full of character. If we ever have a spare bedroom lying around we now know exactly what to do with it.
Styling tips from Malorie
- Don’t jump on the first item you see! Gain inspiration then shop around to find the perfect piece at the perfect price point.
- Secondhand pieces have history and character. That character will translate to your space whether you notice it right away or not.
Malorie’s living room really sets the tone for the whole apartment. It’s classic and comfy with a touch of bold. Malorie mixes prints and textures here to create a cohesive look that comes together seamlessly.

Malorie’s hightop dining set ties together the black bar cabinet and piano in the room. It also adds some welcomed height to a room with mostly low furniture.
