Home Tour: Michael J. Fox’s New York City Apartment

Actors (and husband and wife) Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan share an elegant apartment in New York City that was recently redesigned by designers Brooke Gomez and Mariette Himes Gomez. The home features a soft palette of neutrals gently accented by blue and purple. It has a traditional sensibility with some modern touches that create a unique and sophisticated atmosphere.

The home tour from Architectural Digest shows how they respected the historical architecture of the apartment and enhanced it with a fresh, contemporary appeal. It has a great balance of both and even comes with a few surprises. Enjoy.
