The Rustic Sophisticate

One of the creative minds behind the recognizable aesthetic of Ralph Lauren interior design, transforms his own New York City duplex into a tranquil and sophisticated man cave. Alfredo Paredes was the mastermind behind this masculine chic sanctuary for him and his partner Brad Goldfarb.

The East Village renovation combines inspiration that ranges from an artists’ garret, to 1920’s California deco and, of course, the natural and organic appeal of Ralph Lauren’s quintessential casual luxury.

Leather on the walls, the floor, the furniture, and layers of accessories create texture and interest, while the neutral color palette keeps it all uber chic. Elements from nature, aged wood and objets made from bone and shell, makes this home feel a million miles away from its urban setting.

We covet pretty much everything about this place… And we love to kick of the weekend with a little interior eye candy. To see more of this spectacular home, visit Architectural Digest
