An accompanying interview sees Copeland discussing her design inspirations alongside her husband, lawyer Olu Evans, and the interiors expert who brought the pair's vision to life, Brigette Romanek.
"There are things we just cannot do on our own, and we realized how necessary it was to have a professional team," Copeland is quoted as saying of Romanek. "I did not comprehend how many layers there are to creating a beautiful home that feels organic."
Evans, meanwhile, said that the pair specifically hired a person of color to head up the redesign.
"There was a comfort level there, a vernacular. With Brigette we spoke the same cultural language. I enjoyed that connection," he told the magazine, adding: "I'm always drawn to strong women."
In an extensive photo shoot, readers are taken into the couple's living room, airy kitchen and tastefully decorated bedroom. The glossy eight-page feature also steps inside Copeland's sizable walk-in closet -- a luxury for a New York apartment, but one the dancer had her heart set on.
"My dressing room was my number-one priority," she is quoted as saying.
"I was nervous about that space," added Romanek, who told the magazine that her overall brief for the interiors was "relaxed grandeur, not precious, pretty, dreamy."
"I needed to nail it! Misty has so many events. She needed a place to be alone, to get dressed."
