Being offered what she called, a winning lottery ticket, actress Marisa Tomei through much patience, came to realize the dream apartment she had always wished for located in the city where dreams can reach great heights.
In Elle Decor‘s March 2016 issue, Tomei’s renovation, which involved capitalizing on purchasing her neighbor’s apartment and expanding her own and with the expertise of interior designer Alexandra Hayden, took time, but as you will see, it was well worth it. Located in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, she scoured eBay, flea markets and numerous other online decor sites to create a sanctuary for entertaining and even making sure there was room for dancing should the mood present itself. The kitchen nook above which opens onto the terrace, along with the classic white kitchen and signature upholstered furniture speak to her exuberant personality and passion for detail. Enjoy the tour, read the entire interview here and be sure to pick up the issue that is on stands now.
