For this family of four the excitement of moving into a new construction came with a touch of anxiety. This three bedroom apartment was essentially a blank slate; without existing window treatments, closet systems or previous owners to draw inspiration from, our clients did not know where to begin. We were tasked with creating a family-friendly home that was big on style yet inviting and comfortable. We started in the living room, designing a custom ventless fireplace with a large-scale travertine surround and grey cerused oak cabinetry. Not only does the fireplace ground the room, four extra-large drawers hide plenty of toys and crafts. A durable and stain resistant geometric print rug ties the room together and provides a soft place for kids to romp around. In the master, we created a tranquil hotel-esque retreat for these busy parents. In lieu of a headboard, we upholstered the entire wall in a cream herringbone fabric and created a matching bed frame. Floor to ceiling sheer draperies span the length of the room in a delicate silver threaded sheer fabric.
