Andrew Chappelle is part of the amazingly talented cast of the Broadway hit musical Hamilton, but aside from his performance skills, he has a great eye for design. This is quickly apparent when walking into his Washington Heights apartment, which he shares with his pup, Patti LuBone. From the fantastic leafy wallpaper in the entryway to the teddy bear lamps in the bedroom, his home is quirky and character-filled, but never lacking in style.

Take a video tour of Andrew's apartment:


Throughout the apartment, Andrew has mixed together old and new elements for a style that's unique and timeless. He's a big fan of modern furniture and accents from stores like West Elm, but another favorite source is mom and dad. Vintage items like the velvet sofa in the living room (which was a gift from his parents) and the aforementioned teddy bear lamps give the apartment depth and character. Hamilton fan art sprinkled throughout adds a playfulness to each vignette. All of these elements come together to create a space that's beautiful, stylish, and completely unique.
