Inside Lily Allen and husband David Harbour’s art-deco Brooklyn townhouse
Lily Allen and David Harbour have given fans a tour of their luxury Brooklyn townhouse that they have just renovated with the help of AD100 designer Billy Cotton and architect Ben Bischoff of MADE.
The New York-based couple, who tied the knot in Las Vegas in 2020, opened up their home to Architectural Digest.
From an eye-catching tiger-print media room and a luxury kitchen inspired by The Godfather, to floral Parisian-inspired rooms and a stunning walk-in wardrobe filled with designer goods, the pair gave insight into their incredible brownstone home.
On the bottom floor, the pair created a quirky media room complete with tiger-print carpet and a matching lounge.
‘This is wild, the brain child of my wife,’ David says in the clip.

Lily said the room is ‘relaxing’ and said the pair watch movies and TV in the area, which leads to their backyard that features a sauna and a cold plunge pool.
Off the media room is even a black toilet, which David admitted was his idea.
However, one of the most impressive rooms is the luxurious and oversized kitchen, which David said was designed with the iconic film The Godfather in mind.
‘It’s a layered Italian design theme, based a little on The Godfather movies, this neighbourhood in Brooklyn is an old Italian neighbourhood and we liked the idea of incorporating that aesthetic,’ he said.
‘My priority for this room is I just wanted the light to be bouncing off the walls. It feels very luxurious, warm and functional,’ Lily said.
The kitchen features cream cabinetry, an oversized island bench, a range cooker, a dining table and lounge as well as an oversized chandelier hanging from the ceiling.
In their luxurious home, Lily and David also have a lavish loungeroom they call the ‘garden room’.

The room is complete with a green lick of paint, floral designer wallpaper and a velvet green sofa.
‘We have this double sided sofa so we can argue and look at each other relaxing at the same time,’ Lily said with a laugh.
One of their bathrooms continues the floral theme, with blue walls and quirky pink accents including a matching fridge.
David also had gold swan taps installed and commode cabinets that they bought at auction, inspired by similar accents they saw at Versailles.
The actor admitted that they wanted a ‘Parisian feeling’ in the room, leading Lily to add: ‘You wanted florals and they delivered for you baby.’

In a quirky touch, Lily also joked about the embroidered print they have in the room which is of ‘sexually transmitted diseases’.
‘You’ve had that since I’ve known you, it’s amazing by the way,’ he said.
The pair then showed off their windowless pink bedroom, which had a vintage and retro feel.
Lily said her actor father Keith Allen bought her the flamingo artwork that now hangs above her and David’s pink bed.
‘David, he’s a vampire so we close these doors and he can sleep or watch TV to 2pm in the afternoon,’ she said with a laugh.
Every woman’s dream! Lily then showed off her incredible closet, which was filled with designer including Chanel bags, describing it as ‘functional and very beautiful’
‘It’s cool when you design a room with no windows… you make the bedroom just a place for couple activities… you make it like a cocoon almost,’ David said.
Lily then showed off her incredible closet, which was filled with designer including Chanel bags.
‘It’s very functional and very beautiful and I’m very happy,’ she said.
There is also a vanity mirror and seat if Lily wants to get ready and do her makeup in the closet.
Lily previously explained how important her home is to her, and particularly her kitchen, as she commenced work on the property.

‘I don’t want it to be just a place where food is prepared, I want it to be where the kids come home from school and dump their bags on that table, where they want to be doing their homework while I’m cooking their food,’ she told the River Café Table 4 podcast.
‘I want it to feel like the engine room of our lives: where we communicate and share ideas together, emotions, talk about what’s happening with our day, unpack how we’re experiencing the world.
‘I just love a Sunday roast. I love the ritual of it. I love getting up early on a Sunday morning and peeling all of my potatoes and putting them in the fridge to dry out. I just love all of the different bits.
‘I think it’s really important for my kids, and slightly manipulative as well, because I know they’ll always come back to me on the weekends because they’ll know that roast dinner is always going to be there at three o’clock on a Sunday afternoon. They’ll always come home.’
