There is something about a brownstone in a city that is just perfect. Perhaps because that seems to be the ideal home in a city, as though you have truly made it and been successful if you can afford a brownstone. Whatever it is, I am always drawn to images of townhouses. This home belongs to Rony Vardi, the founder of the acclaimed Brooklyn boutique, Catbrid. I am struck by the simplicity and coziness of the space, though it is equally minimal and modern. Unlike other home tours, the home looks lived in. From the kitchen to the bathroom, the rooms are simple yet equally perfect.
“I found myself wanting simple materials like wood, brick, marble, and brass, things that exist in the world and aren’t actually manufactured for a home.”
"It’s a process and it’s a work in progress, which I love.”
