Apartment in Progress


Designing a space, that is a “blank canvas”, can be a little bit intimidating and exciting all at the same time. The project below is still a work in progress. A few minor pieces, pillows, accessories, artwork and a nice paint job are all that is need to finish up this amazing apartment. Enjoy!


Living Area: An existing wall sconce was removed and replaced with a Slimline light fixture from House of Troy. On the wall, the artwork is my own creation, with Jackson Pollack as the inspiration. The sofa, rug and coffee table are from Design Within Reach. In the adjoining family room, the chairs are from Ligne Roset.

Office: Custom cabinetry was mounted high to keep the floor space open. The wall opposite the cabinetry will have a jumbo size wall map from Pottery Barn Kids. It’s also dry erase, which is an added bonus and a great learning tool for kids. The table is from CB2 and the accent chair is called the Callan Chair from Room and Board.

Dining Area: The dining table and bench were existing furniture that the client wanted to use in the new apartment. The Satellite fixture in bronze (Design Within Reach) is a striking addition to the space. A custom hutch, designed by the client and myself, was made by a vendor on Etsy. It has great storage below, which will most likely be hiding kids toys : )

Master Bedroom: The Nador bed, in a beautiful velvet, is from Ligne Roset. It’s complemented with custom nightstands from the same Etsy vendor that made the custom hutch in the dining room. The lamps and rug were sourced online.

There is one more room that is being designed in the apartment, that I have left out. It’s one of my favorite rooms to design. The nursery, which I will show later on, is almost finished. It has a modern feel to it with a orange, circle rug, a dark blue accent wall and custom artwork. I will post pictures soon.

I hope to finish this project in the next couple of months, with pictures to follow. I’ve really enjoyed working on this and am excited to see it completely finished. If you have any questions or comments, shoot me an email.
