New York City has always been about reinvention, and the New Yorkers whose homes are featured here are no exception. Not content to renovate and update, they’ve transformed conventional city spaces into something so different you’ll do a double take. A townhouse in the Village becomes a Provençal fantasy with a huge country kitchen and a rough-hewn hearth in every room. A Brooklyn church is reincarnated as a cheap-and-cheerful sanctuary for a lively young family. A downtown duplex goes California modern with stone, glass, and a pool that runs from the outside in. To help you realize your vision, we’ve also compiled New York’s first list of the city’s 100 best interior-design talents. No need to live in a cookie-cutter space; the city’s imagination is big enough for all of us.
