Brooke Shields calls herself “a real-estate romantic,” telling Architectural Digest in the March 2012 issue that she “toured brownstones all over Manhattan, looking for the one.”
When she saw a run-down, four-family brick townhouse built around 1910 in Greenwich Village, she knew she had found it.
With help from decorator David Flint Wood, the house has since been renovated and beautifully decorated. Take a look!
Brooke Shields’ Brownstone
Shields is married to television writer Chris Henchy. The living room features a Keith Haring painting, which was a gift from the artist, and portraits of their daughters Rowan and Grier.
The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Chelsea Gray.
“It needed a complete gut,” Shields told AD, “but after a quick walk-through, I could see our future there. 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.”
The kitchen has a large table by MADE and a Malcolm Liepke painting over the fireplace.
