While most apartments in NYC are short on space, when it comes to creating an inviting foyer, sticking to the essential basics can be just about all you need to evoke the feel of a stylish entryway. For this residence in the glamorous and iconic One57 residential skyscraper steps away from Central Park South, a Silicon Valley tech investor reached out to Décor Aid for help in creating an interior worthy of the landmark residence.
Lucky for the owner, the apartment was a light-filled gem with stunning views of Central Park, and Décor Aid worked to create a contemporary, well-judged, and colorful space, with low-profile silhouettes that won’t distract from the views.
To give the residence an equally luxurious entrance, they sourced a Chista console table and a bench from Holly Hunt. As you can see, the slim mirror hung above the console features lines similar to the console for consistency and to keep the eye moving – and it boasts a gender-neutral appeal that’s peppered with a sense of everyday glamour to boot.
After moving out of Manhattan to a much bigger home in Westchester, a client found herself in an all-too-relatable dilemma; how do you decorate oversized common rooms with an open floor plan? To make the home feel complete while reflecting her young family, a minimal palette of mid-century modern furnishings were brought in and carefully edited.
A custom-made wood dining table was designed to comfortably seat up to 10 guests, alongside a graphic wood console from Candelabra to bridge the divide between the home’s charming modern country spirit and the client’s spartan personal aesthetic.
When a repeat Décor Aid client purchased a new condo in Sag Harbor, New York, he immediately turned to the firm to transform it into a handsome retreat. Lucky for them, the home is in an 1881 factory building that was completely transformed, save for some highly inspired raw architectural features.
After his interior designer explored the space, he went for juxtaposing sophisticated furnishings and renovation updates with the building’s historic elements for a refined, yet rustic, look that’s chock full of the unexpected. In the kitchen, the designer stuck with the home’s minimal spirit and kept surfaces spare and calming, so all eyes can focus on the stunning atrium and industrial swing table.
Open Living Room & Dining Room
As characterless residential buildings continue to pop up across the nation, Décor Aid decorators are often faced with adding personality and warmth to otherwise standard, lifeless apartments. In the case of this weekend getaway in the heart of San Francisco for a repeat client, the bones of the space were spartan and generic at best.
Since the open floor plan apartment was small in scale, Décor Aid’s designer smartly repeated the same elements in each room to consistently tie everything together. By bringing in marble accents and finishes, sleek chrome lamps, and consoles and desks featuring slim bases, the look remains minimal in spirit, yet beautifully realized and warm and inviting for an almost transparent look to avoid adding visual weight in each room. The gray L-shaped sofa was used as a key focal point while mirroring the smooth gray surfaces throughout the apartment. To emphasize the tons of natural light the apartment gets, white tables were also added to avoid a visually heavy, cluttered look.
For the same client’s home, a small home office work space was requested since this isn’t their main residence and they’d still need a calming spot to work out of when visiting. A graphic striped chair was sourced to add energy to one of the bedrooms and a gallery wall featuring playful, yet sophisticated, animal prints was installed for a sophisticated sense of inspiring play.
Master Bedroom & Bathroom
When a tech maven was at a loss when looking for lighting and decorating ideas for her young family’s Brooklyn loft, she asked Décor Aid to bring her eclectic vision and wanderlust sensibility to life in her home.
As the home was decorated with a heady mix of modern, rustic, and Scandinavian design styles and notes, their designer continued the feel in the master bedroom.
For their bedroom, Décor Aid interior designer Maria T. made a truly memorable statement by taking advantage of beautifully carved oversized doors that were sitting in storage by using them as a statement-making headboard – while keeping the rest of the area refreshingly minimal.
The same client asked that her small bathroom be transformed to feel like a private oasis. To get the look right, Maria T. decorated the master bathroom to evoke the feel of a far-flung spa via Turkish towels, teak elements, and a handwoven bamboo pendant light.
Having masterfully completed hundreds of interior design projects from coast to coast, you can expect Décor Aid to know a thing or two about creating sumptuous, life-enhancing design. Take a cue from their expert interior designers’ sage advice when looking to recreate your own home.
