Open Working space

The open floorplan faces East and the large windows both welcome natural light and uninvited eyes. This is remedied with top-down, bottom­up light filtering duettes by Hunter Douglas.

relaxing with a pop of color


Metal chairs sprayed in hi-gloss yellow paint were found while walking the many floors of ABC Home. A watermelon dining table by bludot helps to add the much needed “POP” to the various tones of white-on-white found throughout the apartment.

Wall sconces were added over the vanity/desk area as well as over the leather headboard for additional task lighting. The clean lines and crisp tones make the space calm and serene.

comfortable Sleeping in a contemporary space

An area rug by Room and Board helps to ground the Living area while the Platner coffee table adds a sense of timelessness. Jonathan Adler accent pillows provide a playful finishing touch.

recently renovated Manhatten studio with a Contemporary look

This recently renovated studio at the Manhattan House was in need of a fresh contemporary personality. The young client wanted a playful design that captured her taste and youth. Potential furniture schemes and layouts were studied to determine how to make best use of the space. This resulted in a multi-functional studio that has distinct living, sleeping, working and dining areas.

The studio space is defined by a small-scale loveseat sofa that comfortably sits across from the media console. The sofa also doubles in purpose by distinguishing the living area from the dining and kitchen space, which can effortlessly accommodate up to six guests. The remainder of the apartment houses a beautiful upholstered bed that has a lush duvet coverlet with eye catching graphic prints. This is adjacent to a dual-purpose vanity and work surface.

No corner was overlooked in planning to outfit this minimal space with needed storage accommodations. The walk-in closet has been stocked with adjustable shelving and racks to maximize its usage. Additional storage is provided by all the case-good furnishings even including the bed, which has concealed pull out drawers.

The lavish use of white lacquered surfaces as well as cream and ivory color upholstery pieces keeps the small-scale interior open and contemporary. Bold, chromatic contrast comes in the finer details such as the lavender and sequin pillows, a watermelon lacquer dining table, and yellow wire frame seating. Those small touches are all the accent that is needed to bring lively character into this studio.
