Long live Italia
The streets of Harlem may not be cobblestoned, but a diverse swell of delectable restaurants and vibrant nightlife spots impart an Occidental flair. With the history books of bygone ages just steps away at Columbia's libraries, no home better embodies this Umbrian shift than Carriage House III, a two-storey blend of Old World allure and contemporary charm. The neutral tones of rustic wooden furnishings and antiquated elements are bolstered by the clean lines of mid-century seating and polished fixtures. And outside, the quaint courtyard is both warm and welcoming.
Your host is an Italian who followed the Marco Polo route to New York, after previously living in Hong Kong. When she sits beneath the slatted pergola in her garden, it’s almost as though she’s back home under the European sun.
The romantic air of a secluded villa fills the open-plan living space, with two plush seating areas anchored by a tufted ottoman and antique glass-top table. And just beyond is the inviting kitchen, its stainless steel appliances and butcher-block island with mismatched stools overlooked by a wooden dining set.
A carved Indonesian day bed awaits in the vined garden, as well as additional distressed wooden seating ideal for a morning macchiato. And while the single bedroom is laidback, accented with vintage car models, the slate-grey master bedroom with its Louis XV armchairs and decadent king bed offers indulgent repose after a revitalising soak in the ensuite tub
