Central Park West, NYC | The Ardsley | Classic 6 Apartment
This “classic six” apartment on Central Park West has great bones but the owner wanted to bring in a more feminine, global look conducive to relaxed entertaining. The foyer now welcomes guests with a playful, English botanical wallpaper paired with her ornate French console table and abstract artwork. In the living room, I added hand-crafted Moroccan mosaic tiles around the fireplace and rejuvenated her vintage American and Moorish chairs with updated fabric upholstery. The custom made curtains, pillows, and lampshades add patterned, African flair against the new modern sofas and rug. As the client often works from home, I incorporated a new workspace facing the windows to allow her to better enjoy the room and her view. And for casual entertaining, the flexible, six-piece coffee table allows for many loose configurations around the room while the desk can shift aside for use as a food buffet.
