Brooke Shields NYC Townhouse

June 22, 2018

I was just in New York City last week on a trip with friends and because of that, I’ve been focused on all things New York. I’ve always said if I won the lottery and had unlimited funds I would have a place in NYC, a place to call my own in the Big Apple and not have to worry about hotel reservations ever again. I love looking at the apartments and townhouses of people who live in NYC and of course, many celebrities are more than willing to open their doors to newspapers and magazines like Architectural Digest, the place today where we get a tour of Brooke Shields’ beautiful townhouse. The home was originally built in 1910 and by the time Shields and her husband purchased the home she says it needed a complete gut job. Shields ended up using an NYC architectural firm to redesign and update the home and turned to a friend to help with the decoration. She asked David Flint Wood, partner of designer India Hicks, to help make the home as beautiful and comfortable as the Caribbean getaway where he and Hicks lived. Today the townhouse is a direct reflection of Brooke Shields’ life and work with antiques that had been in storage now being used and loved. Shields’ mother, Terri, was a great collector and often visited flea markets, Brooke has managed to incorporate a lot of her mother’s finds from over the years in her home. Join me today for a tour of Brooke Shields’ beautiful home and Enjoy!!!

Where better to start our tour than in the entry of the home. Clean, classic and gorgeous. 

I love the combination of antique and new in Shields’ home, the 1970’s lucite base coffee table alongside Louis XV side chairs and contemporary art. 

Don’t you love the wallpaper used in the dining room? Here you have a great look at juxtaposition with the very traditional furniture throughout the dining room and very contemporary lamps on the sideboard. 

Woods said he had to talk really hard to get Shields to agree to the orange upholstery on the kitchen chairs, too Halloween,  but she finally decided to call it Hermes orange and go for it. 

A vintage Louis Vuitton trunk takes center stage in this sitting room as a coffee table, a gift from Shields’ husband. This room is another wonderful example of mixing old and new. 

The master bedroom in the townhouse is a beautiful light-filled room with the color blue taking center stage. The portrait at the back of the photo was purchased in London and is from the early 1900’s. 

A library ladder allows for easy access to high shelves and shoes are stored on a rolling shoe rack. 

The master bath is a celebration of black and white with gorgeous tile and a black freestanding tub. 

This cozy guest room is one of my favorite rooms in the house, painted in a warm brown color and filled with lots of antique furniture and accessories.
