"New York Behind Closed Doors" by Polly Devlin
A look inside the homes of New York’s artists, designers, writers, and social influencers.
Twenty-four homes and stories of real New Yorkers who live in small spaces with art, books, collections, treasures, and fabulous, sometimes funky furniture―each space expressing the resident’s unique personality. Bright, captivating photographs throughout pair dynamically with Polly Devlin’s in-depth interviews with the homeowners. Her critiques of their spaces are at once delightful, bold, and irreverent―and always lively and opinionated.
From architectural grandeur to streamlined modern buildings, see how individuals turn older apartments and historic structures into places for comfortable living. Houses and apartments are sampled from across the city, including Tribeca, Murray Hill, Union Square, Harlem, Midtown, Brooklyn, and more.
