Ferebee Taube Media Room

When Ferebee and Brook Taube viewed a rundown Midtown East apartment during an estate sale, they knew it was the abode they wanted to call home. “We saw the potential and we were able to do exactly what we wanted,” says Ferebee, cofounder and creative director of FEYT, an online fashion styling website. “But it did take over two years to renovate.” The Taube residence is now a sun-filled, modern space,


Miranda Brooks at home in Brooklyn NYC

When landscape designer and Vogue Contributing Editor Miranda Brooks , her architect husband, Bastien Halard, and their two daughters, Poppy, six, and Violette Grey, four, left Manhattan for Brooklyn, Bastien suggested they “just pretend we’re moving to the country.” What ensued was a complete renovation of the couple’s charming four-story Neo-Grec Boerum Hill brownstone, transformed into a lush wonderland garden home that feels miles from the city.

Let’s have a look at their lovely abode.

Inspired by Marie-Antoinette’s small theater in the Petit Trianon at Versailles, the Upper East Side pied-à-terre of jewelry designer Marie-Hélène de Taillac could not be more refined. When she isn’t in Paris or Jaipur, the designer resides in her Manhattan home, conveniently located three floors above her namesake boutique at 20 East 69th Street.

“I want the city, I have to look at the city!” is what Todd Alexander Romano told his real-estate broker when hunting for a new Manhattan apartment.

at home in new york with Olivia CHANTECAILLE

Raised in Manhattan by French parents, Olivia Chantecaille is the creative director of her family’s eponymous cosmetics company, Chantecaille. You may remember the feature in the February 2007 edition of Domino (of course you do) which showed how her spare bedroom was transformed into her dressing room. I did a post way back that showed the redesign of a tiny closet into a home office and last month Stacey of Design Addict Mom did a fabulous job with her closet turned office space.

NYC Home of Ryan Korban

“He is one of the most meticulous self-made untrained stylists around. His technique is to incorporate something unbelievably ornate, rich, or brazen—say crystal lamps, a load of them, as if straight from napoleon’s room at the Louvre—and strip said piece of all its aforementioned connotations. It ends up looking exclusively Ryan.”

Ryan Korban

The introduction continues, “His exactitude speaks to a very basic desire we all strive for.  We want our spaces to be attractive and inspirational,

Anthony Edwards and Jeanine Lobell  at home in New York City

Bold color comes naturally to gregarious cosmetics executive Jeanine Lobell, a makeup artist whose unapologetically saturated hues caused quite the sensation when she created Stila, her cosmetics line, 17 years ago. Hardly one to follow rules, when the free-spirited Lobell, her husband, actor Anthony Edwards, their four children, two Chihuahuas, and pair of parakeets moved to Manhattan from Los Angeles several years ago, they wanted their  5,000-square-foot Park Avenue apartment to reflect their New York City lifestyle,
