We had the pleasure of going to NYC last weekend, for Dear Carolina,  so we have Manhattan on the brain — which is why we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to showcase this gorgeous One Fifth Avenue home designed by Tamara Magel

We remember One Fifth from Candace Bushnell’s amazing novel a couple of years ago, and it is most certainly a landmark of the Washington Square area, one of the most famous and culturally significant neighborhoods. 


One of few isolated skyscrapers, it is a beautiful rarity. And, in the case of this fabulous home, we would say that the insides match the outsides. 

The clean and streamlined living room has modern touches with all the right places. 
It’s simple elegance at its finest.


For the homeowners, who love to entertain, the dining room was a critical piece in the renovation. Blue velvet chairs from Milo Baughman set the tone for the area.  


The round lacquered table can expand to seat 12 for a crowd, and in-demand lighting designer Lindsey Edelman designed a custom glass blown chandelier for a unique accent.

Monochromatic bookshelves in black and white make such a statement.
The master bedroom embodies the urban farmhouse chic style that the homeowner originally imagined for the space. Glamorous yet masculine, it is truly a retreat.


Artist Peter Brockman created the beautiful art on the black accent wall. 
A white pouf is the perfect chic accessory for a fabulous dressing room. 
The perfect way to end a stressful day!
An antique gold faucet is the perfect accent for a custom black and white marble sink. These homeowners set out to update the dark and formal interiors of the previous owners and make it a haven for their young family. We’d say they succeeded with aplomb.
