An organic oasis in the West Village

East meets west in this organic oasis in the West Village. Designer Becky Shea transforms a white-walled apartment into a warm retreat through textures like wood accents and soft leather. An organic, timeless approach to the design and artwork, including hand-dyed pieces on linen by Carrie Crawford, paintings by Kimmy Quillin and Clay Mahn, and natural wood sculptures by Fitzhugh Karol, ties together the three-bedroom space.

“Nestled in the West Village overlooking the Hudson River, this organic modernist space spans half a floor featuring floor to ceiling steel grid windows with breathtaking views of the city and nature to the North, South and West.”

“Each room was uniquely designed with multiple layers of texture that define the space independently, while complimenting each other in a cohesive and syncopated environment across the entire home. ”

“A Juicy Jute Grasscloth' wall covering by Phillip Jeffries adds more dimension to the blue room, which Becky enjoyed making slightly darker from the other spaces. ”

“The homeowner was extremely open to our neutral palette, as she wanted this space to be a calming oasis the moment she stepped foot through the door after a stressful day of work.”
