Carmelo Anthony has been living the good life since retiring from the NBA this year. The New York native is opening the doors and pulling back the curtains to his “modern vintage” mansion in Westchester, NY.
The lavish home matches his eclectic style and taste with it serving as a museum-inspired tribute to creativity and self-expression.
“The idea for the house [and the vision for] this space was to create my own personal [rotating] art gallery,” Anthony said.
Anthony’s personal collection of artwork, furniture, and figurines helped guide Bonhomme throughout the designing process.
“All the different places he goes, he collects things. We wanted to use them as the backdrop of the home,” Bonhomme said.
Among the standout pieces, includes a large mural of Muhammad Ali done in polished wood by the artist Cryptik. The piece was personally commissioned for Anthony and sits in the foyer above the double-arched staircase.
A trio of large marlins that Anthony caught years ago were painted red, black, and white by Bonhomme and placed on the foyer’s right wall. Artworks by Nathaniel Mary Quinn, Kehinde Wiley, and Delphine Diallo line the walls and the level parlor is where Anthony likes to entertain.
“I sit there. I throw my record player on. I can chill. I can see outside…. You get to listen to music,” he says. “You get to vibe to the art, you get to read the books…. It’s just a vibe.”
As for where he stores his massive shoe collection, there’s a personal bedroom for that. His son Kiyan also has a bedroom decked out with vintage furniture and art.
Now as Anthony settles into retirement and watches his son carry the torch, the father and son are enjoying the peace and tranquility of the ‘burbs and relishing in their art deco-styled home.
