Last year, seeking a change of scenery, domino market editor Elaina Sullivan went hunting for an Upper West Side apartment with history and soul. She found these qualities in abundance in a 250-square-foot studio located in an 18th-century building that once belonged to the Gulden family (of mustard fame). Though small, the space boasted 12-foot-high ceilings and French-style plaster moldings. To enhance these covetable features, Sullivan furnished the apartment with a mix of old and new—vintage accessories and colorful paintings— creating an eclectic, well-curated atmosphere.
Rhododendron branches are Sullivan’s foliage of choice.
