As a kid, Allison McNellis had a fascination with rearranging furniture in dollhouses. Even the smallest tweaks could alter the way a particular space felt to her. Here, we delve into a two-year renovation of a Harlem condo tackled by Allison and her husband, Andrew McNellis, who turned the space into a gorgeous two-bedroom abode full of repurposed, DIY furniture, artworks created by their friends and up and coming artists, and a space that is flooded with sunlight.
