This loft-like apartment in New York City's West Village features gorgeous exposed brick walls, bright spots of colour, and vintage furnishings throughout.
It belongs to NYU professor Alison Aldrich (great-granddaughter of US Senator Nelson W Aldrich). She bought up three adjacent studios and turned them into one apartment, with two bedrooms at the ends of the open living room, dining area, and workspace you see above. It's warm and colourful, and looks like a great place to live and work. You can see more photos and details in the New York Times slideshow below.
