I must say I’m a bit jealous of Kelly Framel and her boyfriend. This cozy railroad home in Chelsea isn’t her main living space but her pied-à-terre. It was a scary move for Kelly to sell her duplex in Brooklyn and considerably downsize to this pre-war apartment. The apartment needed some work, they put in a new kitchen and floors and they gave the apartment a fresh coat of paint. I especially love the paint color in the kitchen, even though the space is small the dark color gives it an even more cozy feeling. The apartment is decorated with items they have collected over the years so it isn’t just an impersonal second home. You can see that they put in a lot of work and love into this apartment and the result is a beautifully cozy home with some vintage touches.
