OK, so I’ll confess to a total girl-crush on Debbie Millman: She’s super smart, completely beautiful and incredibly generous with her time and energy. This House Tour on Apartment Therapy this morning kicks that crush into the geeky stratosphere. Debbie has lived in her Chelsea apartment for 16 years; to hear her tell of it, the neighborhood was druggy and run-down when she moved in, but she fell in love with the light-infused space and the—get this: backyard. With the help of her longtime friend and decorating advisor, she’s recently updated her place with an all-white canvas for newly acquired midcentury furnishings and an enviable art collection. Go to Apartment Therapy for the full scoop, more pictures and a tour. I’ll have to congratulate her about the new place when I see her in Denver!
The backyard. In New York City. Who knew?
