I host a "No Furniture Party" in all my apartments before moving anything in so I can get a feel for the space and brainstorm with friends. Nothing stirs up creativity like a glass of wine (or four) and conversation.
What inspired you?
This apartment has a lot of drama all on it's own – of course I loved it immediately. The huge 12' tall windows and door framed with carved mahogany needed to be complemented with classic designs that wouldn't upstage the architecture's powerful presence.
...I believe in surrounding myself with things I love, so I selected furniture by the pioneers of the design world that has always inspired me. The goal was to make the place feel comfortable while still being simple, stimulating, and visually interesting. I can live, entertain, and re-energize all in one room – what more could I ask for!?
Embrace the space. Look for features of your apartment that inspire you and then let them explode!
