We were invited to transform a classic prewar apartment into a stylish but unfussy family home. The interior palette varies as dark smaller spaces flow into progressively lighter larger rooms. This subtle transition of color makes the larger rooms, although low ceilinged, feel even more spacious and brighter. The use of velvety warm grays and ivory colors in the space is accentuated by an ensemble of antiques, mid-century modern and contemporary pieces. The clients’ art collection and family heirlooms bring depth and history to the eclectic mix.
