We continue our special double peek with a look at interior designer Amie Weitzman’s NYC brownstone. Amie bought the townhouse in what she calls the Upper Upper West Side five years ago. They did a gut renovation and added some modern elements while maintaining the original brownstone character. They opened up the back of the building and added a double-height glass window to maximize the natural light. Additionally, they white-washed all the original dark oak details on the main floor and put in wide-plank Douglas Fir flooring throughout the house. The result is the exact vibe they wanted, stripping out the formality and making for a cozy family home. Special thanks to John Gruen for the amazing photography and tip about Amie’s place, and James Leland Day for the great styling! — Anne
