Design in Details
Economizing the space was a priority during this project because there was only 1,500 square feet to work with. To accomplish this we opened up the wall between the living room and the kitchen. The seating for the kitchen was chosen because it fit perfectly under the seamless piece of stone we used for the countertop. Built into that stone slab is an electric cooktop, microwave and oven. The kitchen is a very angular space with lots of rectangles so we chose a low profile lighting fixture that matched.
In addition to opening things up, we preserved a lot of the existing angles by adding in extra storage nooks and functional niches wherever possible. We were able to incorporate artwork done by my client’s mother by the ‘wetbar’ and drink station to the right of the kitchen.
In the bedroom, we replaced a walk-in closet that didn’t seem to fit or function correctly, with a large ‘manity’ dresser. We used Shantung Silk, Japanese wallpaper to add texture and subtle elegance to the room. The centerpiece of this room is obviously the headboard, which had to be produced by two different vendors. It’s covered in faux leather and is led backlit to accentuate the design of the piece and also works as a soft nightlight.
This condo is filled with custom, specialty pieces working cohesively with the natural angles of the building. All the changes allow the space to feel grand even though it is quite small.
