How a Supermodel Does NYC Living: Inside Jessica Hart's Gramercy Apartment
When you're a supermodel with refined taste and an impressive wardrobe to match, downsizing on space — as all NYC dwellers must contend with — demands a lot of creativity. So when Jessica Hart moved into her one-bedroom Gramercy Park apartment, she had to subvert the traditional functions of some of the space's rooms.
"I came across this and was like, 'Wow. This is where I want to wake up.'" the model told Architectural Digest. So, with a little help from designer Remy Renzullo, she decided to make the loft above the kitchen her sleeping quarters, and convert the bedroom into a walk-in wardrobe with a custom closet. The twin-size window seat in the closet also now doubles as a guest bed, with the entire space taking on the vibe of a vintage store.
The living room, in all its four-metre-ceiling glory, is welcoming, open, and makes the most of the light that filters in from the floor-length windows; its walls adorned with various paintings and portraits of Hart herself, framed Instagram-style. Renzullo also paid special attention to the room's furnishings, which are a mix of mid-century and feminine pieces, such as a rug she picked up in Greece, and a George Nelson table.
