Picture this... the quintessential Manhattan apartment. (Before Photos shown) Located one block from Washington Square park it features 11 foot ceilings, two bedrooms, fireplace and original 100 yr. old moldings. The client is a 30 something bachelor looking for a space that reflects his life and personality. The concept for the design of the apartment is tailored /modern.
|Donghia - Gidget (Silver)|
Elegant yet edgy custom furniture pieces blend with rich moldings and grand architecture.
Renovations began about 4 weeks ago with a complete paint job and installation of the most stunning wallcovering from Donghia: Gidget, which is a paperbacked fabric with a wonderful shimmery quality.
This week all the fun starts with the delivery of a Custom Walnut Bed & Headboard, Night Tables, Dresser as well as a truly handsome Desk.
Next week the custom Sofa gets delivered along with some great other pieces.
Check out the transformation over the next few weeks!

The 2009 Mansions & Millionaires Designer Showcase for the benefit of the Mentoring Partnership of Long Island recently ended it 6 week run. Attendance at the event was fantastic and much money was raised for the charity. NEWSDAY and HOUSE magazine featured the Showcase prominently.
I commend the work of all the designers as everyone's designs where not only creative but awe inspiring.
Featured are photos of my space, "The Study".The "Study" at La Selva is at first glimpse a calm tailored traditional space. Awash with rich colors, patterns, and tactile pleasures. "Chopped Dill" painted walls are accented with warm saffron, copper, cognac and mushroom tones.Designed to do triple duty as a study, lounge and media room; the space is precise but layered, clean yet eclectic, based in history and more importantly; very today. Traditional surroundings are given new life with the introduction of bold contemporary artwork and a media system offering over 450 DVD's and 4950 CD's and electronic controls that adds a new dimension in home entertainment with wireless light and shade control at the press of a button.
