Julianna Margulies’s Serene New York Apartment

Posted by Chanel on
January 7th, 2014

When an actor plays a character as convincingly—and for as long—as Julianna Margulies has played Alicia Florrick on the celebrated CBS television series The Good Wife, it’s easy to conflate the two. But their sharp differences register instantly in Margulies’s presence: The actress is as warm and relaxed as Florrick is coiled and controlled. The bright, airy New York apartment Margulies calls home underscores the point. Purchased a decade ago while the building was still under construction in the SoHo district, the loftlike 2,200-square-foot dwelling was created by combining two then-available units—a studio apartment and a two-bedroom.

“I bought it thinking I’d flip it,” says Margulies, who was bouncing between coasts and acting projects at the time. Her plans shifted, however, once she actually experienced the space, with its ten-foot-plus ceilings and its rooms filled with light streaming through the amply proportioned windows—double paned to soften the city’s clamor. “There’s just this sense of calm here,” she says. “I didn’t realize what a smart buy it was.” Or how perfectly it would serve her needs as a single woman with a demanding career.

But in 2007, life took an unexpected turn when Margulies married Keith Lieberthal (the global director for a financial research company). Shortly after that, Margulies became a mother (their son, Kieran, is now six), then landed the role on The Good Wife that would win her an Emmy in 2011. “Suddenly I had a husband, a baby, and this hectic, crazy life,” Margulies says. Were that scenario part of a made-for-TV movie, the family would have pulled up stakes and relocated to a larger home, a story line Margulies and Lieberthal were actually ready to embrace. A two-year search for new digs, however, failed to turn up anything the couple liked better. So instead of moving they opted to freshen up their existing residence.

The actress had always done her own decorating, but having a young child and a work schedule that routinely calls for 14-hour days meant handing off some responsibilities. Enter designer Vicente Wolf. “I’m obsessed with design magazines,” Margulies confesses. “And every time I’d get to a room I loved, it was Vicente’s. He has this way of making spaces not just beautiful but homey, modern, and useful.” To achieve this delicate balance for his latest clients, Wolf focused on a handful of architectural and cosmetic changes, while also rethinking the furnishings—wherever possible incorporating items of personal significance to the couple. “For Julianna and Keith, my job was to ensure that the apartment felt entirely new,” the designer says.
