View from entrance; hand-painted De Gournay panel inside niche, client's chandelier was restored and her Mexican terracotta figure feels a natural complement
The apartment was extremely dark with very little natural light. Bleached floors, semi-gloss cream paint on walls and ceiling and white blinds hiding the unattractive views solved this. Recovered client's own Eames chair and ottoman and provided a custom copy of a midcentury sectional sofa. The arc lamp is from Ikea and the hanging cabinet is a midcentury piece.
Vignette in the living room
All the furniture and pottery was the client's own, the dining chairs were reupholstered and we purchased a new chandelier.
We streamlined the existing kitchen with new lighting, countertop, new appliances, and cleaned up and added on to existing 70's plywood cabinets.
Wooden wall and built in were existing. The blind creates brightness and the panne velvet duvet cover a touch of luxe.
