When Emmy Rossum purchased her pre-war apartment in Midtown Manhattan, she knew it would need a lot of work. The actress enlisted ELLE DECOR and designer Antonino Buzzetta to transform her 800-square-foot “pied-à-teardown” into the home of her dreams.
The style Rossum sought to achieve was “chic, European, the look of a modern girl who has inherited her grandmother’s stuff. I wanted it to have a young energy, but with old-fashioned touches,” she told Buzzetta. The living room features an antique fireplace Rossum found while shopping with her mother at the Marché aux Puces in Paris.
The herringbone wood floors were among the only original elements to remain after the extensive renovation. In the new build, Buzzetta added architectural features and refreshed the built-in bookshelves to channel the history of the 1928 building.
Irving Penn photographs and an antique chandelier (see similar style below) Rossum inherited from her grandmother grace the elegant dining area.
Buzzetta created extra surface space in the compact kitchen by tearing down a wall and building a breakfast bar in its place. To brighten the ebonized cabinetry, he selected Caesarstone quartz countertops and pair of globe pendants inspired by vintage subway lights.
When choosing finishes, “Mixing metals is a much more relaxed approach,” Buzzetta said. He selected brass task lights and a timeless crystal chandelier with polished nickel accents in the bedroom. The soothing wall color is Farrow & Ball’s Parma Gray.
Linear bath sconces were a sleek solution in the bathroom where wall space was limited. The sink, walls and mosaic floor are outfitted in Ann Sacks marble.

“Lighting, in my opinion, is the single most important element to any space. How you manipulate the natural light coming into the room or the way you incorporate task or accent light, you instantly have the ability to not only change the mood, but the functionality.”-MF
“I believe the magic is truly found in the balance of overall vision and attention to the finest detail.”-MF
