What inspired you?

Inspiration starts with the character of the apartment. We enjoy several compact residences around the globe instead of a big house in one place. (Currently there are three, including both our home towns in Texas and Rio de Janeiro.) At our London Terrace apartment in NYC, inspiration is drawn from the Deco History of the building coupled with the spirit of the hip Chelsea Neighborhood.

Design Tip:

Designate ambiances through use of area rugs, art work, lighting and floral.
