Once, it was New York’s Montmartre, a colony of creatives and free spirits with all the vibrancy (and chaos) such a community implied. Now, Soho has smartened up while carefully retaining its spiritual heritage as one of the city’s hippest hangouts. Balthazar, the Prince Street boutiques, MoMA design store – this neighbourhood is hip, eclectic, and fun.
And right in the heart of the action is Lafayette Street, a truly extraordinary home. Built in 1905 and retaining many original features, this home offers acres of space and a vibe that’s exotic yet New York through and through.
Your glamorous host is a long-time resident of Soho. She works in design – something that won’t surprise you, when you set eyes on her incredible home.
The master bedroom is both bright and cosy, with Eastern rugs, more original art, and a queen-sized bed. There’s a silver and white ensuite, and of course, our gorgeous Kiehl’s toiletries and fluffy towels. The second bedroom has its own private sitting room, with a TV and an ochre wardrobe, while the family bathroom displays glass sculptures and a divine shower.
