A Living Room Ready for Valentine's Day

posted on: Thursday, 2 February 2012

Brooke Shields' Manhattan apartment seems to the perfect place for spending a cozy and warm Valentine's day! Architectural Digest has picked the apartment of the famous actress for its March issue which is out on the newsstands now, a few days before Valentine's day. Her Greenwich Village townhouse was renovated in collaboration with designer David Flint Wood and MADE architects. 
Shields, says that she toured brownstones all over Manhattan "looking for 'the one'. About four years ago she was shown a derelict (though landmarked) four-family brick house built around 1910, with a ramshackle ’60s addition. “It needed a complete gut,” she says, “but after a quick walk-through, I could see our future there. My bathtub in a niche by a window. Our daughters’ playroom on the top floor. A light-flooded, parlor-floor kitchen with a big hearth and a balcony. That kind of instant certainty is rare for me—I’m a Gemini—but for once, I was sure.
