Misty Copeland is giving fans an inside look into her New York City apartment.

In a new profile for Architectural DigestCopeland, 37, and her husband, lawyer Olu Evans, open up about their dream home in Manhattan's Upper East Side.

The couple, who wed in 2016, purchased the classic three-bedroom loft two years ago, and enlisted the help of L.A.-based AD100 interior designer Brigette Romanek to make the space feel like home. Copeland asked for "relaxed grandeur, not precious, pretty, dreamy," she said in a brief submitted to Romanek.

"There are things we just cannot do on our own, and we realized how necessary it was to have a professional team,” Copeland told Arch Digest. “I did not comprehend how many layers there are to creating a beautiful home that feels organic.”

Evans added that they chose to work with Romanek because they wanted a person of color working on the space."There was a comfort level there, a vernacular. With Brigette we spoke the same cultural language. I enjoyed that connection,” he said.

"I’m always drawn to strong women," Evans added while gesturing towards Copeland.
