#21 - Marlene + Todd’s Love Nest

Name: Marlene + Todd Capron
Location: NYC, West Village
Size & Type: 587 square feet Studio Loft

Favorite resource: My husband, who is a furniture designer and is very crafty + talented. He made the sliding panels and an oak dining table that is hinged along one side; it opens to reveal a hidden storage area in the apron.

Additionally, we love: Accessories + credenza from Jonathan Adler, wall panels, tall bookshelf, dining table, coffee table, etc from Capron Design Studio and upholstered items from Todd Hase.

Pitch: Both Todd and I come from a design background. In fact we met several years ago in NYC during ICFF. Combining our stuff was much easier than we thought...

Pitch Cont'd: Many of the items Todd brought to the apartment were things he built himself. The first thing we changed after moving into the studio loft was to define a bedroom space.

Todd designed the corrugated plastic panels and the tall narrow bookshelf to hold a collection of art books and objects. Since we do not own our space, we’ve tried to make minor cosmetic changes, like paint accent walls and applying wall decals in the bedroom.

Your favorite element: The sliding wall panels that separate the living room and the bedroom. The panels are hinged in the middle so that we can turn and slide them against the wall to make room for dancing.
