Karlie Kloss's Home in New York City
Квартира-праздник американской супермодели Карли Клосс (Karlie Kloss) в Нью-Йорке. Двухуровневая квартира с двумя спальнями в районе West Village находится в нескольких минутах ходьбы до Гудзона. На первом уровне находится просторная гостиная в светлых тонах и кухня, на втором — две спальни, балкон с видом на сад и небольшая гардеробная комната. Карли Клосс приобрела свою первую нью-йоркскую квартиру в 2012 году. На фото интерьеры после недавнего обновления.
Supermodel Karlie Kloss Sets Up Her First Home in New York City :
“I’m not used to being me in a photo,” says Karlie Kloss, who, in spite of her protestations, seems perfectly comfortable doing exactly that. Naturally flashing her sly, alluring smile and leaning ever so effortlessly against her kitchen counter, she looks every inch the supermodel. Still, she’s on to something: Since the age of fifteen, Kloss has perfected the art of embodying someone else’s vision. But representing herself, in the first home she can call her own—a West Village town house purchased just last year? “It’s taking me out of my comfort zone,” she says with a laugh. Then she falls back on a familiar move: the trademark supermodel jump. “That jump paid for this house,” Kloss, now visibly more relaxed, says—and she’s only half-joking.
Though few other 21-year-olds have the means to buy such an impressive starter home in one of Manhattan’s most-sought-after neighborhoods, as Kloss is quick to point out, “I’ve worked really hard to be in this position.” In the last five weeks alone, she’s traveled between jobs in New York, Zurich, London, New York again, Madrid, back to London, New York, London for the third time, St. Barth’s, back to New York, then Paris, and now back again. It’s the kind of itinerary that makes it easy to understand why, having kept such a pace for most of the last six years, Kloss had never really felt at home anywhere. Now that she’s in her early 20s, though—adulthood, really—she felt it was finally time to plant some roots.
Kloss shopped around for two years before finding this somewhat hidden,
greenery-covered home on a quiet street a few blocks off the Hudson River. She liked the notion of being in the West Village—it’s where most of the people she’d met said they would want to live—along with the small garden in front where she could plant flowers and herbs. The interior, however, was an unknown frontier. “I really had no experience at all decorating or being a homeowner,” Kloss says. “I knew I wanted to make it mine, but I wasn’t quite sure how to go about doing that.”
