Talking Points

A moveable redesign with old and new furnishings, soft goods and some serious attention to detail.

Chad was in the market for a little home improvement but wasn’t sure that he was going to continue renting his West Village loft forever. The solution? Finding a redesign that could move with him if the time came. After six years in the space, Chad’s taste was pretty evident: a little art deco and kind of mid-century. With the help of Homepolish designer Amanda Gorski, the apartment came to life with already owned items, new pieces and a streamlined aesthetic.

His neutral couch stayed, and Amanda sanded and repainted a wooden credenza a high gloss gray with a pinch of sage to complement the room's green chairs. The duo thought about just ditching the Ikea bookshelf on the back wall and opt for built-in shelves. But instead, Amanda added natural wood strips on the front to create a seamless, built-in look. Fresh flowers, worldly accents and a graphic rug pulled the room together. "It is a very stressful process to go through, but Amanda made the decisions much easier," Chad said. "You really have to trust the person you're bringing into your home." That trust in Amanda's vision made for a stunning new room that can move with Chad if he ever decides to leave.
