Francesca Falzone’s East Village railroad-style apartment is a New York City dream. The art history major-turned-Christie’s researcher shared her space with The Everygirl, and, well, it’s everything you’d expect from someone who works in contemporary art auctions.

Thanks to her art history and design background, Francesca is able to clearly define her interior decor style. “I am heavily influenced by mid-century modern French and American decor. Their aesthetic is clean, symmetrical, and organic,” she told The Everygirl. “I also think their palette complements artwork very well, which for me, is always on my mind.”

In fact, artistic touches and homages to artists are abundant in the apartment. According to Francesca, “My swinging bedside lamp is inspired by Mouillé, my bathroom “Naked” neon light influenced by Tracey Emin, my sheep sculpture similar to a LaLanne sheep, and my Phillipe Starck credited Ghost Table are all examples of this.” Be on the lookout for these pieces throughout the tour!

Okay, so I am not well versed in the technicalities of New York City railroad apartments, but based on this overview and the way the living area connects directly to the bedroom, I think this counts.

While Francesca’s apartment is full of lovely mid-range pieces from shops like West Elm and Anthropologie, she scored many of them on sale, using coupons or as discounted floor samples.

Shop Francesca’s Living Area:

The kitchen is small but nicely updated and features an in-unit washer/dryer. Told you: New York City dream apartment.

Shop Francesca’s Kitchen:

The bedroom is easily my favorite part of Francesca’s apartment. I just love the mix of textures, neutral colors and, of course, pops of blush throughout. It feels modern while still being welcoming. 

Shop Francesca’s Bedroom:

Francesca plays up the modern finishes of the bathroom with a cheeky neon sign. It would never occur to me to hang neon in the bathroom, but I absolutely love how it turned out.

What do you think of Francesca’s apartment? Are you just as smitten with her bedroom (swoon!) as I am?
