I love Manhattan this time of year; the leaves are changing color in Central Park (one of my favorite places in the world), there are festivals, street markets, the village Halloween Parade, the NYC Marathon, and more. This weeks house tour is a luxurious city apartment where all but one room faces Central Park, I am in heaven. As a professional interior designer it is rare that I stumble on a space like this, one where I fall in love with the interior design and architecture. I fell at first glance and couldn’t wait to share this tour with you. Architect Adam Rolston was faced with the challenge to preserve the prewar heritage of the building while creating a modern space for his clients. He nailed it! This space is exquisite and luxurious with classic influences and modern details.
The theme of classic and modern details remains consistent as the kitchen showcases, clean lines and beautiful finishes (check out the work-space with a view of the park). The perfect blue tone settee in leather and a pair of custom-made whimsical chairs surround a granite-top table in the kitchen.
The dining room is pure eye candy. A circa-1940 Baguès chandelier hangs above a custom mahogany table in the dining room with silk wall-coverings in a peaceful green pallet.
Above, a sleek master bath with classic tiles and a white pallet fits in perfectly in with the surroundings. My favorite room in the apartment is the master bedroom, I am crazy for the 1940s Italian chandelier, tufted bed and walls painted in Benjamin Moore’s Hancock Green. I am ready to move right in!
