Painting an Apartment in New York City

Paintzen connected with Sierra Tishgart, former Senior Editor of New York Magazine and co-founder of Great Jones. She was redesigning her West Village apartment. “After living in my rental apartment for three years, I wanted a design refresh, so I decided to paint!”

“I had never liked how light reflected off the beige walls that I inherited. This redesign was part of my larger goal to make the space feel warmer and create more flattering light.”

"Ariel Okin, my fantastic HomePolish designer, helped me decide. I wanted something neutral in the living space — I have a colorful rug — and I settled on a light pink."

"Painting has made my space more joyful and personal. I love, love my bedroom color! It makes the room feel like a cocoon."
