How the Other Half Lives: Agyness Deyn


Agyness Deyn has put her Williamsburg, New York (Brooklyn) loft on the market. The 28 year old British model purchased two lofts in the historic Mill Building in 2008 and combined them to make an impressive 2911 square foot space. Her real estate agent describes the space as:
Authentic and Rare Offering of an Iconic Loft. With just under 3000 square feet, this fully renovated corner loft offers an exceptional layout, 13ft ceilings, and lots of light with both southern and western exposures. Located in the heart of Willamsburg's exclusive Northside, this 2bed/2bath loft has stunning original features - enormous windows, beautiful wood beams, iron columns, and wide planked hardwood floors. The very large master suite includes a custom 250 square foot walk in closet and dressing area leading into an expansive master bathroom ? which includes a separate steam shower and free standing custom onyx soaking tub. This sanctuary is outfitted with some of the rarest onyx and marble stones and tiles imported from around the world. The one of a kind kitchen includes all custom appliances of the highest caliber sourced from Europe; such as, a subzero refrigerator, imported LaCanche range, Miele dishwasher, and tailor made stone sink to maintain the loft's genuine rustic feel. With incomparable attention to detail, this apartment also offers a meditation room, large utility room with washer/dryer, and generous closet space making it an even more ideal opportunity.

I'm a judgy b*tch, but I respect your personal space. To me, a home is not the same as a celebrity wearing a dress on the red carpet, where there can be so much commerce at play. Most of the homes I've shown on this blog have not been my personal aesthetic, but I get them, to some extent. I also understand that most of the spaces have been staged, to remove, or hide much of the celebrity's true personality. As Agyness Deyn's loft is up for sale, I believe that it too has been "cleaned up".

And that scares me.

Sh*tless.

I don't know what I'm looking at, or where to look. The bones of this loft are perfection: hardwood floors, lots of large windows, high ceilings, exposed beams. Love it. But the decor, there's just so much of it. So many competing styles. I don't quite know what kind of eclectic look she was going for.

Here's a view of her living room just off the dining room.

 

The Den.


The north wall of her dining room. You can see the kitchen on the left, reflected in the mirror.


The study.


The master bedroom with its muralled walls.


The bathroom, and the doorway leading to the walk through dressing area.


The 250 square foot dressing area.

However Agyness "dressed" her home, at least you can still see what a great space she owns. I wonder if it is the walls that are throwing me off?
