Transitional Comfort in Downtown, NYC
Designing a weekend home for a fun-loving family
A wonderful family wanted to spend some more time in New York, so they decided to buy a place in the West Village so they can discover new restaurants and nightlife, as well as seeing all the latest Broadway shows in the city.
The Living/Dining area serves as "Home Base" for their daily activities as well as hosting the occasional guests.
Beautiful and easy-to-maintain leather furniture is very inviting for all to sit down and grab a snack, or watch a movie on the flat-screen TV, hung whimsically on an old artist's easel. The Dining Area features a great round table, perfect for game night! A beautiful walnut and teak bar cabinet holds plenty of bottles and glasses for a party! We added sconces for more light as well as a mirror, framed in the tin from an old ceiling.
The multi-layered window treatments in the Living Room and Master Bedroom include a leather cornice with nailhead trim and beautiful panels on each side. Solar shades within can filter the sun and add privacy during the day, while blackout shades are perfect for movie nights.
The Master Bedroom features a big comfortable bed with upholstered headboard, plenty of pillows, mirrored furniture, and fabulous glass-beaded wallpaper... it's a true showstopper that shimmers in the most fantastic way!
The second bedroom does great double-duty for the children. This brightly-colored loveseat folds down into a full size bed at night, and the closet to the right offers plenty of built-in storage shelves and drawer space! On the other side of the second bedroom is a desk that can be used for homework during the day, and folds down to a twin bed at night.
We designed and built the custom linen closet to add plenty of room for sheets and towels, and a great lower paneled door which hides the laundry hamper. Who says that a closet can't look as beautiful as the rest of an apartment?!
The bathroom was designed as a sleek, modern, open space using the absolute BEST materials and finishes available. Beautiful white and rich chocolate brown marbles are combined in the most modern way, while adding visual interest, and having the materials themselves be the "star" of the room.
The family who lives here LOVES their new home! It was a total gut renovation that gave them this amazing fresh new space. They look forward to making many memories together in their fabulous West Village home!
