Actress Julianne Moore says it was always her dream to own a historic townhome in New York City and her dream finally came true fifteen years ago. She took care in renovating the home in a way that would modernize it with touches that suited her and her family while preserving the incredible character and history of the property, which she highly values.
The result is a warm, elegant home with decor that mixes both new and old seamlessly. The home embraces a neutral palette but the use of contrast and textures makes the design very dynamic and intriguing. Wood mixes with streamlined furniture, dark walls mix with white area rugs, and modern decor mixes with antique touches.
This home tour, courtesy of Architectural Digest, is full of inspiration and looks like the kind of place you can relax right into.
Julianne Moore Home Tour
Even though the palette is neutral, a medley of textures and contrast create a cozy, interesting space.
The dining room is an eclectic mix of elements that gives the space character and personality.
Beautiful windows allow in plenty of natural light, which bounces off the light accents like the rug. The dark walls disappear into the background.
The marble tub in the center of the master bathroom makes a statement but in a subtle, sophisticated way.
An original fireplace is bursting with character. Simple art and knick-knacks allow it to steal the show while adorning it with extra charm.
The living area is cozy with dark wood beams and a soft area rug. Love the built-in shelving.
A fireplace adds warmth and coziness to one of the bedrooms while natural light pours in from the gorgeous windows.
The yard looks like a secret garden with stunning foliage and a mystical atmosphere.
The outdoor space is the perfect place to unwind and forget that you are in the middle of a major, bustling city.
Love all the contrast at work in this space.
What a beautiful, inviting home.
