Global Textiles & Bold Prints In An Upbeat Family Home

More often than not the homes we most like to spend time in reflect their inhabitants, quirks and all. That’s especially true of this from-the-ground-up renovation by Y&Co. owner Ali Yaphe and her builder husband Matthew Kosoy. Together, with input from designer and longtime friend Mazen El-Abdallah, they created a welcoming home for themselves and their two young children, Charlie, 8, and Annie, 5, where bright colors pop against sleek finishes, and personality abounds in every room.

“I’ve never been one to shy away from color or bold design elements,” says Ali. “When I walk up the stairs every day, it makes me happy.” Click through to peek inside the upbeat, global-inspired space.
