With full walls of windows in three directions this apartment is all about the views, especially in the Dining Room at sunset.
A custom designed bar cabinet and a wall of desk cabinetry in natural bleached and white washed mahogany make the dining room dual purpose to share the great view. File drawers below the bar unit add to the drawers in the desk area opposite the dining table. A Victor Schraeger Chromogenic print hangs on the column behind the bar cabinet.
Art selections throughout the apartment add color and interest. Here a large photo by Wim Wenders hangs above a B&B Italia sofa in the Living Room and a digital piece by Chad Kleitsch hangs in the hall. A custom handed knotted carpet adds pattern. A strung leather cord back on a pair of chairs keeps the view open to the windows from the Entry while still being amazingly comfortable.
The floor to ceiling cream sheer wool drapery trimmed with a deep hem in moss polished linen softly frame the skyline. A classic Womb Chair and ottoman upholstered in mohair is a great place for reading under a vintage standing lamp.
A Jean Cocteau painting on a serving piece sits on a table in the Livingroom with a family photo. The Entry beyond is one of the few location without it’s own window but the leather strap hung mirror above the console reflects the living room windows opposite and adds light.
A lucite lamp and a 19th century Philippine Santos Figure stand on the wood and steel console.
Custom patterned rugs liven up the hall areas and a etching by Robert Stackhouse sits on the B&B bar cabinet.
Even the kitchen breakfast nook has a great view for morning coffee.
The sweeping views of sky and cityscape through the curved corner of windows in the Master Bedroom make the night spectacular. Dark taupe sheer textured linen drapery filters light in the day.
A loose cushion is hung by straps on the top of a custom designed headboard and bed platform in dark walnut. Natural walnut night tables sit in front of the continuous headboard with light sconces mounted on the face of the headboard. A Dream Series print by Trent Park hangs above the bed and a light box with a black & White transparency by Tokihiro Sato is installed in the entry to the Master Bedroom.
A brilliant red wall and multiple black & white patterns create a lively bedroom for a son. The red wall is hung with poster prints by Escher and Victor Vasarely and a Saturnia standing lamp completes the picture.
A wall of sheer draperies over an intensely colorful wall paint softens the color effect in the daughter’s bedroom. Lights behind the curtains create a very special glowing low light effect in the evening.
