As the star of the critically-acclaimed series, "The Good Wife," it's necessary for Julianna Margulies to have an apartment in New York City, where she works. However, the actress said that the 2,200-square-foot SoHo loft that she purchased nearly a decade ago is more of a home than a crash pad.

"There's just this sense of calm here," she told Architectural Digest. "I didn't realize what a smart buy it was."

Still, after spending so many years in one place, Margulies enlisted the help of designer Vicente Wolf to update her decor. "He has this way of making spaces not just beautiful but homey, modern, and useful," she said.

Living Room

"For Julianna and [her husband ] Keith [Lieberthal], my job was to ensure that the apartment felt entirely new," Wolf said. In the living room, that meant covering her sofa in a new Larsen fabric and decorating with Portuguese Colonial candlesticks and a Burmese side table.

To achieve this modern-looking kitchen, Wolf installed specially-crafted steel shelves and a set of matching bar stools from Design Within Reach.

It's hard to believe that 14 hours on-set aren't enough, but when she does need to do work at home, Wolf made sure she has a great space to do it. Not only did he design this walnut and steel desk, but he outfitted the room with Artemide lamps and Eames chairs from Herman Miller.
