Scope: This was generally a decorative project with a minor construction component. The client was a single gentleman so the overall feeling of the design was elegant and masculine. The decorative program was composed of French and American Art Deco pieces combined with custom upholstery and my client’s modern art collection. We used a neutral palette to create a visual hierarchy and feature the furnishings and art.
The original French boiserie wall paneling in the living room was preserved to create a classical shell for the modern furnishing. The boiserie was striped, repainted with a pale gray/beige tone and top-coated with a subtle, antiqued glazed finish. The dining room (and entry hall) received a lacquered wall treatment which coordinated with the adjacent living room color palette. It featured a modern round dining table with a vintage alabaster chandelier from Scandinavia. A “forth wall” was created using an over-scaled 4-panel English Regency glass paneled mahogany screen.
The master bedroom was more architectural in design, with integrated upholstered wall panels in a pale gray/green linen fabric. Custom upholstered headboard with Pratesi bedding. Ralph Lauren furnishings. Art by Jim Dine. The home office/den had matching upholstered walls with the bedroom to create a seamless flow between the rooms. Custom built-in bookcases flank the sofa and frame the window/views. Vintage Art Deco desk, cocktail table and framed armchairs by Newel Gallery
