You may recognize Thom Filicia‘s name from his impressive television career like the original 2003 Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and 2018’s Get a Room with Carson & Thom, both on Bravo, and that’s why the designer is no stranger to reimagining—and overhauling—interiors for design-novice people on extremely tight deadlines. When it comes to his personal home design, however, Filicia takes a more casual, free-associative approach that provides ample opportunity for creative brainstorming.

Eight years ago, Thom Filicia decided to sell the SoHo apartment where he had resided for a decade and move to a neighbourhood with a bit more breathing room. Filicia alighted on the then-emerging West Chelsea area, where the elevated High Line park was drawing people up and away from the streets, and where art galleries provided cultural stimulation. A floor-through unit in a modern building designed by the South African architect Lindy Roy caught his eye, thanks to a layout with a strong separation between social and personal spaces.

After spending four months in construction redoing floors, bathrooms, lights, and counters, Thom Filicia set about decorating the 1,800-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment. The home design includes a mix of his own pieces, both from his Thom Filicia Home Collection and his to-the-trade New York showroom Sedgwick & Brattle, along with vintage furnishings and the artwork he has collected over the years.

The elevator opens onto an entrance hall, which leads to a light-filled living room, dining area, and kitchen. Views of the High Line abound, and the neutral-toned space boasts textural interest, like walls sheathed in Thom Filicia’s own iridescent, steel-grey abalone wallcovering and an acid-washed mirror in an upholstery frame. Above a reclaimed-oak dining table with a pickled finish hangs an heirloom Victorian painting by Henry Nelson O’Neil that once belonged to Filicia’s grandparents and which he modernized by framing it in an acrylic shadow box.

A gallery hall separates the home design’s public and private wings; Thom Filicia treated it like a moody portal, covering the walls and ceiling in a charcoal-grey chevron wood veneer, against which a vintage red Chinese console and white plaster–and–gold bolection mirror pop.

Another hallway leads to a media room, where Thom Filicia does all his television watching, and to a nearly 800-​square-​foot master suite grounded by a four-poster bed that Filicia designed for Vanguard Furniture. An Alexander Calder-inspired mobile hangs above the bed, which faces an oil painting of the sea by Alex Weinstein—the work is so massive that a crane was required to lift it into the apartment.
