Many of you will remember the actress Claire Danes for being the blonde Juliet when Leonardo Dicaprio did that Romeo in the 90s, although the truth is that it has not stopped and lately you can see it in the highly recommended series of Homeland. Today we are lucky to sneak in your Manhattan home (which by the way has appeared in the magazine Architectural Digest) because it has been put on sale recently.
We begin our tour of the living room of this loft where do they mix classic furniture with more modern ones, which give the room a certain retro air that I love. Notice how they have left the wooden beams in sight and the floor, for once in an urban house, is terracotta.
In addition here we have an unexpected complement to many of the American houses that we have seen in this section: blinds in all windows. He White It has been the color chosen so they do not finish removing the exterior light if they are lowered but they do sift it, giving the room a more cozy atmosphere.
The gathering area, delimited by a fluffy raw carpet, is composed of a sofa, two armchairs and two chairs but can be completed with the pouf with wheels that you have on the right. I really like the feeling of symmetry They have achieved in this area, completed with the two floor lamps on both sides of the sofa. Although this image is not seen, the television would be right in front of the built-in sofa in a bookcase that functions as a space separator and that gives some privacy to this part.
He Claire Danes dining room is separated from the gathering area by the bookshelf I was talking about. Here we have a somewhat more intimate corner between two dividers with a cozy atmosphere. The actress has chosen colored chairs that combine perfectly with the wooden table topped by a lamp of sixties design.
Notice how for this part of the house you have chosen curtains with large folds increasing the sensation of theatricality and how the white walls have been combined with some brick detail between the windows. A large plant is the only thing you need to decorate this dining room that is very close to the kitchen.
We finished our tour of the actress's house in the kitchen, one of the most curious spaces we can find in your loft. At the bottom of the image you can see the kitchen itself, with chrome appliances and a shelving where you can put the spices and a cookbook, while right in front of us we have a mobile table that can be used both for a quick breakfast and for an office , thanks to its rotation around a pivot that reaches the ceiling.
In summary, I like this house a lot, since it has been known to combine the latest decorative trends with classic furniture filling the personality space. I really tell you, if I had the millions sure Claire Danes asks for her I wouldn't mind moving to New York ...
