England meets NYC

This NYC condo had breathtaking views of the East River and 59th Street Bridge, but lacked style and character. The client wanted a warm, cozy, English-style retreat.

Wide plank hickory floors accented with walnut borders were added throughout, as were crown, base and casing moldings with bulls eyes and plinth blocks to give it some bones and layers.

The kitchen was replaced with mahogany-stained walnut cabinets, green marble counter tops, a tumbled marble and glass tile backsplash, and stainless appliances.

The furniture was mostly mahogany, Georgian style with an oriental rug and a custom-made tapestry which is reflected in the bedroom mirror. Custom bedding and window treatments throughout. Alabaster light fixtures with antique bronze finishes completed the look.
