A minimalist 5,000-square-foot urban loft is in an industrial building that was built in the early 1900s in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood. The loft’s renovation by Desai Chia Architecture won a 2018 AIA Institute Honor Award for interior architecture. The cast iron columns were existing in the open living, kitchen and dining area.
Cindy says her twins keep her home life happy and inspiring. "Before that, I still lived in the same place. My kids just weren't there and it did nothing for me," she says. "It's so fun and bright compared to the way it used to be."
When it comes to decorating her home, Cindy loves mixing old and new pieces. Throughout the home, she pairs contemporary furniture with Moroccan throw rugs, glitzy antiques and, of course, plenty of toys for her twins, Zoe and Jesse.
Cindy loves her West Village location because of its relaxed atmosphere and nearby parks for the kids. "You can actually smell fresh air in the city, which is wonderful for New York," she says." The reality star is currently transforming her outdoor living space — a rare find in New York — from a party place to a play area for the kids, adding a swing, cushioned cement, an outdoor kitchen and tables for family meals.
Comfort and practicality are important elements in Cindy's home. "I'm not worried about things in my home like people are when they get older — like with the furniture you can't touch. You just can't do that when [the kids] are this age."
