This custom home was a labor of love with no detail left unattended. The distinctive foyer features an antique limestone floor and an artists's original mural using a plaster and paint technique above the custom wainscoting.
During the two year construction process, much time was spent "hunting" for antique and vintage pieces that were refurbished, repurposed and used throughout the house. This enabled Robin to establish a high end, old world feel, giving the client the grand country home of their dreams.
This modern renovation combined two upper east side postwar apartments to create one unified five bedroom luxury, city home.
Hailing from California, this family, was looking for a comfortable Manhattan base that would add an urban twist to their lives while maintaining the hip and laid back feel of their home state.
With three teenagers in the home, comfort was paramount in designing the space. Robin worked to incorporate a warm vibe while maintaining an offhanded modern décor.
Two apartments became one large family home in this Central Park beauty with magnificent views of the park. this second time client typically had a traditional aesthetic, but here Robin expanded their horizons into a cleaner, more transitional version of their conventional style.
The challenge was to make this apartment fell cohesive, joining old with new while creating a contemporary layout with a traditional feel. In collaboration with the architect, Robin spearheaded the renovation, including the interior architectural detailing and millwork, space planning, custom finishes and furnishings throughout.
Every aspect of this project, from the renovation through the decorating, was custom designed. This included new moldings, doors, and trip, a kitchen by Siematic, and furnishings throughout.
In addition, Robin designed much of the furniture specifically for this project. The living room coffee table, seen here, features removable iridescent leather cushions, making it both comfortable for daily living and practical for entertaining. The discreet hidden drawers are ideal for extra storage.
This is the guest bedroom from a recent two bedroom condominium project in Manhattan's most prestigious building. This was a complete renovation project; the apartment was stripped to its shell and reconstructed from the floor up, creating an ultra luxurias, totally custom pied-a-térre for a high profile couple.
This shot of the bedroom shows the numerous textures, colors and materials, all hand chosen, that went into making a glamourous, contemporary look.
