NOWNESS | My Apartamento: Tchaik Chassay and Melissa North

When London-based interior designer Melissa North first visited the apartment she now calls home, it was a run-down shared house filled with artists, including then-unknown painter and pop art master David Hockney. 

Years later the artist would sell the apartment to North and her husband, architect Tchaik Chassay, who had years before—following Hockney's stratospheric rise to fame in the mid ’60s—been commissioned to redesigned it. 

For the latest installment of My Apartamento, the dynamic duo give director Barbara Anastacio a private tour of the space and talk books, a love of color and the trials and tribulations of raising a family in a kitchen built for a gay bachelor.
