Pied-à-terre Off Central Park

When an out-of-town couple set out to look for an NYC home base, they found 15 Central Park West—now a famous NYC landmark.

The apartment started out as a total blank slate. A huge white box. My challenge was to honor the gravitas of the apartment’s building—in one of the most prestigious locations in New York City—while transforming the space into a warm, yet impressive home away from home. I initiated a complete gut job and oversaw every detail—with the couple’s total trust and faith!—to reinvent the space for their modern luxury living and entertaining.

The clients loved how the sophisticated pied-à-terre turned out. I filled it with custom details throughout—high-end finishes, custom upholstery, wool and silk carpets, onyx countertops, handcrafted bronze tile—fab details everywhere! I even designed a one-of-a-kind cocktail table to suit the space. The home now rises to the level of its remarkable building—and is a refuge of relaxation for the couple and their guests.

Our homes are a reflection of who we are…they also help us become who we want to be.

Place objects that inspire and uplift you in key locations throughout your home. Also...a little Feng Shui goes a long way!
