House Call: Harriet Maxwell and Andrew Corrie of Ochre in NYC

UK natives Andrew Corrie and Harriet Maxwell relocated to Soho back in 2005, when they opened the New York outpost of their furniture and accessories shop Ochre on Broome Street. The nearby loft they settled in required a complete renovation; they relocated the kitchen to the front of the loft (for more light), and built a series of glass-walled rooms toward the interior of the loft for their three small children. The couple outfitted the subtly glamorous interior with a mix of antiques and new pieces from Ochre and the lower-priced Canvas line—all in the classic Ochre palette of moody grays, pale pinks, and robin's egg blue.
