Melding her Miami roots with her NYC life, Alexis wanted the space to feel glam and artistic. Lots of new furniture purchases.

Rumor has it that Alexis’s West Village apartment is haunted by the ghosts of The Rolling Stones’ youth. If they are here, they’re definitely happy lounging around this beautiful, sunny, decadently decorated one-bedroom. Alexis isn’t a professional rockstar but she does have impeccable taste, and when partnered with Homepolish designer Casey DeBois, the two went to town (though without painting it black). Keeping a great mix of collectors items and vendor finds, the apartment quickly evolved from nothing-but-a-bed to a fun and ultra chic space. Things to note: the Brass Étagère Shelving Unit decorated with fashion tomes and tchotchkes; the bar cart accessorized with vintage ice bucket, serving tray, libbey cocktail glasses and retro swizzle sticks; and Alexis’s amazing contemporary art collection. Everything added by Casey worked perfectly with the original parlor details. Floral crown molding! Marble fireplaces! Not hard to imagine Mick Jagger lounging on the couch, now is it?
We vibed right away which made the designing together so much easier. It was a true partnership and we became good friends during the process!- Casey, Homepolish designer
