Home Inspiration - Naomi Watt's NY Loft

Just got my Architectural Digest today and immediately fell in love with Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber's beautiful Manhattan loft. I've been making some plans to renovate and this really inspired me. I love this mix of antiques and pieces from Ralph Lauren and Restoration. 


This entrance is pretty fabulous.


The dining room has an antique cabinet and mirror that are wonderful for display, but also great for entertaining. I'd love to find something like this.

 I like this icy blue cabinets in the kitchen and the built in banquette. Kinda retro and reminds me of our kitchen as a child.


 The cute family with their sons.

 Another view of the dining room. The casual feel of the chairs and large table are nice. Seems so much more inviting than a very formal dining room. I know our family would use something like this.The light fixture and rug really make it different.


The boy's beds are from Restoration. I think it's so nice when kids share a room. Our boys did for a long time and sometimes I used to listen to their little nighttime chats when they were small.

You can see the rest of the house here at AD. I think Naomi Watts has such great style and she has three movies coming out this year. You can see their very pretty, totally different Hampton's home here, which they had it on the market at the beginning of this year, but now are apparently renting for $20,000 per month. Naomi also bought this to die for ivy-covered home in Brentwood from Sally Field a decade ago. Smart girl!

  5. This place is fabulous Kim! Thanks for sharing. I would guess the piece you like was once a store counter. I bet you can find one!!

  6. I love this post Kim and I actually saw this issue talked about on the news a lot because they featured the Kardashians' houses too, but I'm so glad you focused on Naomi's! :) Her style is so classy and unique. I was so impressed with all the details and dark wood and I agree with you how her children's room was so cute. I always wanted my own room, but definitely appreciate having shared one with my sister growing up. I think it's important for siblings like you mentioned about your sons. I'll have to click on their Hampton's one next. :)

  8. Kim, a little late commenting here but I just picked up this issue of AD today. Especially love the first shot of Naomi's entry and stairs. I am not a fan of the Kardashians but I am dying over Khloe's home, especially the living room. I'm always drawn to Martyn Lawrence Bullard's designs! His work is amazing.

    So just curious, what are your renovation plans?

    1. Linda I have to say I love the Kardashian's homes too, but can't stand them, so I didn't mention them. Both their kitchens were really pretty though. I am hoping to open a wall between the dining and main room. redo the kitchen a bit with new windows (greenhouse overhead windows are rotting), redo the counters, build an island instead of the peninsula I have, replace the whole house floors too and possibly change entry and front door and a few other things.. List is long. Not sure where to begin. I do want to keep the same look and feel of my house without making it look generic. I'd like to paint it white and I have to redo the front porch and lawn. Sigh. Any suggestions? I think I need an architect.

  9. Ha Ha well I was being nice, I really can't stand them either. When I bought the magazine at Barnes & Noble I even said the to clerk "Now, I'm not buying this because the Kardashians are on the cover".

    Wow that is a long list of stuff to do, sounds like you need a contractor to consult. Our house needs a lot too... My husband thinks it would be better to wait 5 or more years and then do a total remodel rather than tackle anything now. (our house was built in 1948) We'll see. After already living in this house for quite a few years I'd at least like a new kitchen and would hate to wait that long.
