Home Tour: Homepolish Turned This Band Manager's West Village Apartment Into a Deco Dreamland
We're pretty much obsessed with everything that the Homepolish designers are doing with decor, so imagine our excitement we have to share this Deco-inspired home they did. The resident, Alexis, a band manager, employed Homepolish designer, Casey DeBois, to help her makeover her one-bedroom space in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan. The finished product is a crisp interior that's totally livable with Deco era decor and a touch of rocker attitude.
Keeping a mostly-white color palette, gold accents with a vintage feel were added into the space for a touch of glam. The gallery-white walls also allowed Alexis' contemporary art collection shine.
Space is a luxury when living in New York but high ceilings and full-sized furniture make this apartment seem spacious. Inside tip: Even when designing a small room, don't make the mistake of decorating with all apartment-sized furniture. Why? You'll end up with a cluttered space filled with too many pieces. Stick to full-sized furniture, but just less of it.
Adding the Midas touch, Alexis and Casey accented with metallics, such as a black and gold table lamp and a vintage Milo Baughman étagère shelving unit, which adds the quintessential geometric Deco element.

Vintage finds and contemporary art work wonders together. Although they're from different eras, see how the bold art piece and black Knoll Platner chair both add punch. We also love the humorous touch brought by the finger pillow.
The apartment hails from the nineteenth century but that doesn't mean gorgeous molding and over-the-top gold mirrors can't live well with mid-century furniture finds. A clean-lined chaise and modern lamp work with the old apartment features because they're both in neutral color palettes.
Keeping the bedroom area clean, the designing duo went with a simple upholstered headboard and classic white sheets.
