For Haven’s Kitchen‘s Ali Cayne, mother of five, creating this inviting family home close to her restaurant was the key ingredient to a healthy work-life balance. After moving from the Upper East Side to a townhouse in the West Village, Cayne underwent extensive renovations with the help of her architect, but tackled all the décor, and finishes herself. Talk about over-achiever.

Ali Cayne’s strong sense of style comes through in her bold choices: floor-to-ceiling subway tiles with dark grout, monochrome gallery walls, yellow George Smith sofas, and wide collection of vintage Moroccan rugs, to name just a few. “I always love black and white with a splash of color” she says. The icing on the cake? A rooftop garden where she grows lettuce, berries, and sunflowers alike. Positively dreamy.
