minimalist nyc home of Daphne Javitch. / sfgirlbybay

Fashion entrepreneur turned wellness expert Daphne Javitch’s Lower East Side apartment so beautifully represents her healthful approach to style that you’d never guess that the sanctuary exists situated in the middle of one of New York’s busiest neighborhoods. With abounding natural light, a minimal eye for decor, and a few extra cozy touches (those warm leather chairs look so inviting, right?!), the home comes off as welcoming yet pared-down. A custom wrap-around sofa, hand-crafted by Daphne’s husband, Pali Xisto Cornelsen, is the perfect example of lived-in ethos meets tranquil design.

“We’re both in touch with our mental/physical/emotional health, and so much of that is rooted and nurtured at home. We wanted a warm but minimal place, almost beachy,” Daphne recently told Remodelista. I’m addicted to the soothing vibe and can’t get enough of the strategically placed pops of rainbow that appear throughout the space (yay for colorful bookshelves — the true mark of a well-rounded reader — and the fun shift-dress that hangs in the couples calm bedroom).
