Our mission was to create a home for a couple that was downsizing from a large townhouse to a two-bedroom apartment. We started by cataloging all the pieces they knew that they wanted to live with and found an elevated way to incorporate their rich inventory into an interior that is vibrant and tells their full story. From the moment you step through the elevator vestibule and into their apartment you step into the story of this couple’s life. Guests are transported from the streets of New York City to a cherry blossom filled grove. Inspired by the couple’s Chinese woodblock collection the entrance gallery walls and ceiling are covered in a hand painted custom wallcovering featuring the beautiful blooming flowers. In this space it was extremely important to choose finishes that reflect light. This apartment provided a text book lesson for how a dark space can feel light with the correct choice of finish and color.
