Turtle Bay, NYC | The Executive House | Pied-à-Terre
This worldly couple sought to spruce up their 2-bedroom pied-à-terre and make it just as inviting as their Connecticut home. We painted, installed custom curtains and new carpeting throughout, plus applied a handmade natural wallpaper in the dining area. We reupholstered some existing furniture and simplified the artwork displays and floor plans to lighten up the rooms. In the master bedroom, I disguised an awkward ceiling soffit over the bed with cloud-like swags of linen I made, and added a minimalist tree branch wallpaper to complete the look. We also converted the client’s tall, vintage Korean chest into a wide dresser with a new upholstered & glass top and a hand-découpaged TV cabinet above. The guest bath got a sensible mini-makeover with new lighting & storage plus partial new tiles to hold it over. With a little organization of closet storage and their stunning views of the Chrysler Building gracing the background, this makeover is complete.
