In the canopy This home’s expansive family feeling bursts forth in the dining and living room. Mossy arrangements in terracotta pots spot the window sills, matching verdant glass coasters and flowered furnishings, while exposed beams and trunk-like columns tell the building’s natural history. Tribeca, once an industrial district, has been revitalised by a fertile flood of artists’ studios and local markets. Back at your den you can settle deep into the loamy softness of the sofa’s brown corduroy, while your eyes follow the lose loops of the chandelier. Second nature Your family of hosts make the whole neighbourhood their playground – easy to do, as they love the relaxed atmosphere. When not at the park, the children like to draw, while mum and dad have cultivated their own healthy crop of art across walls and bookshelves. A sylvan Shangri-La Your junior hosts’ room is a jubilant bunk-bed Eden, with tropical butterfly bookends and the oversized paisley of their green papered walls. Lush textured luxury renders another kind of paradise in the master bedroom, with the flame-coloured lick of the velvet chair and the rich brown silk of the walls. And the master bathroom’s caramel onyx walls speak geological decadence to its Jacuzzi tub and double sinks. Upstairs, you’ll discover a bathroom overrun by the home’s cornucopial excess – vines climb its wallpaper – while the understated and spacious kitchen is cut back to its warm wooden core.
