Armchair in the salon room in an apartment

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.
