Washington Square West Home
We have been working on this home since early 2019 in phases. The first phase included the entry level, the connecting stairway and the first floor, living and dining room. The second phase was the complete renovation of the third floor and roof top deck. The home is completely transformed from its original layout and design. We loved how we were able to provide so much more seating and make spaces much more inviting for the home owners to entertain family and friends.
In the first phase, we replaced the entry level floors with honed baglio marble, the marble around the fireplace, and the stair runner. We had the main entry area, first floor and all connecting stair and hallway areas painted. In this project we were responsible for all furniture and furnishings. The art is existing but we had it reconfigured and rehung. We replaced all lighting fixtures and provided all furnishings and accessories.
The second major phase of the renovation began early 2020. We fitted out the roof deck. We took that raw space, added a pergola with a sunshade, pin lights, and what the owners refer to as their outdoor 'disco ball' hanging over a firepit surrounded by beautiful outdoor lounge seating, a grill and food prep station with a walnut butcher block cutting board. We also added decking that allows water to filter out and properly drain from the roof deck.
As you head indoors, we replaced the flooring and gave the wet bar a face lift, replacing the countertop, sink, and wine fridge. We painted the room overall and the cabinets of the wet bar. We added floating shelving above the bar and new lighting and hardware throughout the room. We put in new window fixtures and all the furniture is new accept the bar height table and chairs. The stools originally had black vinyl covered cushions, we reupholstered them as this was one of the pieces of furniture the owners really wanted to keep. We love that the color of the wood on the table and stools fits in so well with the rust colored velvet on the sofa and those two elements work together to anchor the room. One other mandate...we had to include a reclining chair.
The owners are people who love to entertain family and friends and the space is truly welcoming and we loved creating spaces where people can connect, relax and enjoy a glass of wine. Everything ties together so well, with earth tones and blues showing up in every aspect of the design. Each of the owners is represented in furniture selections, fabrics, colors and finishes. When working with married couples or partners, the challenge is nearly always to make sure that both individuals are seamlessly incorporated in the space and we take that very seriously and enjoy that level of challenge.
