Actress Marisa Tomei has turned her elegant Manhattan apartment into a place all her own. Over the years of scouring everything from thrifts and garage sales to eBay, she has carefully curated a space that is a reflection of her unique style.
Elle Decor brought us inside her vintage-inspired apartment, which is full of charm and character. Every piece has a story, which the actress says is what inspires her about collecting second-hand decor. The result is an inspiring look at how cultivating a home that is unique to you should be an ongoing process and something that you put a lot of love into creating.
While the palette is mostly neutral, you’ll see pops of carefully chosen color that help bring the space to life. Modern elements give it a sleek edge that contrasts well with some of the more traditional vintage pieces.
Enjoy this very unique and lovely home tour.
A Vintage-Inspired Apartment
Studded insets in the door and big accents keep the space clean, yet full of character.
Modern chairs and an eye-catching light fixture look sharp in the breakfast nook.
Funky modern patterns look fun and unique in the living room. They’re grounded by the soft, neutral palette that surrounds them.
Rich purple walls look elegant in the master bedroom. The orange chairs compliment the walls with a pop of color.
Every piece of decor in the apartment looks like it has a story behind it, making the decor feel even more special.
This is a great example of how much of an impact you can make in a small bathroom. The green backdrop in the cabinet creates a stunning accent against the textured wallpaper.
The kitchen is full of charm and antique flair. I love pop of red in the chairs.
Yellow ottomans are perfectly placed in the center of this living room for a cheerful accent that doesn’t take away from the modern elegance of the space.
Marisa has given us a glimpse at the wonderful results that come from making your home a unique reflection of you and your style.
