Home Tour: A Historic NYC Townhouse

In New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood is a historic townhouse owned by interior designer Betsy Morgan. Though Domaine Home recently published a stunning tour of the home, you’ve probably already seen it before at least once. That’s because photographers and film crews have used the home as a backdrop in several magazine publications (including Vogue), television commercials, and campaigns.
