The marriage of UN program coordinator and International Human Rights Expert Siri May and artist Casey Legler is truly a match made in cool-girl heaven. After all, it’s not every day that two badass boss ladies—each equally talented and inspiring—live under one roof as each other’s better half. But these gals are far more extraordinary than they are ordinary, and their eclectic New York home reflects that.

Between May’s fierce activism and Legler’s groundbreaking modeling career (she was the first woman with a contract as a male Ford model) the pair is a force to be reckoned with. After meeting while Legler was waitressing years ago, the two were friends before falling in love and choosing to elope, as all cool girls do, at City Hall. Legler wore a Balenciaga suit borrowed from photographer Ryan McGinley.

Here, May and Legler tackle our “After I Do” mad lib together to give us a glimpse at domestic bliss.

Before we got married, Casey’s apartment was kind of a mix between a

n art studio and a bedroom, while Siri’s featured contemporary Scandinavian and Art Deco interior decor.

Casey lived

alone

and spent most of her time at home reading and writing, but Siri lived with

two housemates and three dogs

Boy, was it a

journey

when we moved in together.

When it comes to art, we’re both all about

abstraction

. The most beloved pieces of art we own are

traditional handwoven baskets by the Australian indigenous women Siri’s mother works with, several Art Deco statues, Casey’s large photographic works, and several original pieces from the King Pins collective in Australia.

On a typical Monday evening, we can be found

cooking

and

reading

. Saturdays are for

staying in bed, the farmers market, and the gym

and on Sundays we

always also stay in bed and then cook

.

Casey’s design aesthetic in three words is

abstract, monastic, and sparse

, while Siri’s is

abstract, elegant, and eclectic

.

We mostly shop for

furniture at antique shops, Design Within Reach, and the odd piece of Ikea.

Family heirloom(s)?

So many! We’re European and literally came with dowry chests. Favorites include George Jensen silverware, multiple cameo brooches, a 19

th

century antique writing desk, and multiple Art Deco lamps….

The thing Casey is most attached to from my single life is

leaving her toothbrush by the kitchen sink

because it

feels taboo and her inner 7 years old relishes in it

. For Siri, it’s

watching rom coms in bed; it’s the antithesis of her working life and allows her to indulge in sentimentality and nostalgia in private.

The five items you will always find in our refrigerator are

cheeses from Bedford Cheese Shop, organic berries (usually blueberries and raspberries), mixed greens of all sorts, almond milk, good French butter, and yogurt.

When it comes to money, our biggest challenge is how 

to appreciate what we have

. We like to spend on 

education, books, food, and travel.

Our favorite room in the house is the

bedroom

because

it’s perfect

.

The most important piece of advice we would give to newlyweds is

enjoy it—it’s the best!

Never, ever compromise when it comes to

honesty and openness!

In ten years, we hope for our home to continue to be a

warm and inviting space filled with tons of love.
