The client brief for this airy midtown apartment was for a straightforward and uncluttered environment, one with minimal decoration yet maximum impact. A carefully considered selection of furnishings, art and objects lend an air of calm and comfort. The all new, dark aubergine kitchen sets a dramatic tone in the otherwise monochromatic open living space. A masculine grasscloth envelopes the master bedroom, enlivened with hits of orange and black. Velvets, wools, and rosewood further enhance the feeling of quiet luxury.
