Designer Suchi Reddy crafts a family-friendly New York City apartment.

When two actors purchased their West Village abode, it came with a 180-degree view of the Hudson River—and a frenetic series of odd angles and partitioned-off spaces. Designer Suchi Reddy renovated the interiors, keeping the bank of windows unobstructed while folding in a fleet of modern furnishings and built-ins. “My directive was to create something very comfortable, calm, textural, and modern,” explains Reddy, who used a palette of reclaimed oak, bleached wood floors, blonde millwork, and white plaster. “It’s a space where you want to linger,” she says.

The kids' playroom features built-in storage and a Fly pendant from Design Within Reach. Reddy purchased the mural from World Maps Online and the small table and chairs from Igloo Play.

A palette of soothing hues creates a calm mood in the bedroom. The wallcoverings are from Innvironments, the bedcoverings are from Deborah Sharpe Linens, the curtains are Manuel Canovas and purchased from Cowan & Tout, and the candelabra is by John-Paul Philippe through the Cristina Grajales Gallery.
