Space Planning in Chelsea Duplex (part II)

Following up on my space planning post from last week, here are a few additional photos of the chelsea duplex I worked on several years ago.  The main level featured a bedroom, and a kitchen extending into an open layout with the dining room and living room.   A nice sized terrace adjoined the living room on the wall near the fireplace.  On the stairway leading up to the master bedroom we designed a custom built in for books and storage.  An open layout is increasingly popular space planning option in residential units in New York City.  Natural light is an essential component in higher end real estate and developers are seeking to maximize value by creating larger open living areas so potential purchasers have the option to entertain.

Westchester redesign

Here are several preliminary photos of a living and dining room interior Westchester redesign I’m finishing up in Pelham, NY.  We designed a custom shelf to accompany a gas fireplace which we installed near the bay window/front section of the home.  Most of the furniture is custom or vintage.  We created a tufted, leather banquette to frame the entrance of the room and sit alongside the fireplace.  The client loves purple so we incorporated purple accents including pillows and blown glass accessories.  We are in the process of incorporating artwork with touches of the color as well.  The two lounge chairs  and sofa were custom upholstered pieces as well.  We went with mid century end tables and vintage Murano table lamps which I love.
