Artists often apply their creativity to interiors in unique and eye-opening ways, and David Kahoi’s apartment in the East Village of New York City is no exception. This prewar apartment was completely run-down when Kahoi and his family bought it, but with determination and lots of creativity, the space has just the right balance of family living and the artist’s touch, along with a high-low mix that’s expertly accomplished. You can also spot Kahoi’s fabric collection for Schumacher throughout the apartment, such as the black and white pillows on the vintage sectional above. See the fabulous tumbling block entry hall below…

The maste rbedroom may be my favorite room, with the tall ceilings accentuated by the dramatic canopy bed. The combination of linen drapery and grasscloth keeps the room warm but airy.

How do you like the Kahoi’s creative home? You can see their last apartment tour here – it was even smaller but packed even more punch with it’s bold design!
