Completed in February 2012, this luxe Upper East Side residence successfully evokes warmth and intimacy ideal for a family environment due to GRADE’s thoughtful design and use of large-scale furniture, which recontextualizes the expansive space to one of a more personal scale. Stylized accents, colorful artwork and customized pieces of furniture, specifically in the children’s bedrooms — a Robert Greene painting, a curved daybed playfully resembling a skateboard halfpipe — create a bold yet accessible environment where eclectic notes harmonize with functional pieces.
The children’s spaces are bright, airy and feature a palette of striking hues, whereas the adult spaces are cozy and elegant, with muted colorways. The living areas — adorned with the client’s collection of books, artifacts and artwork culled from around the world — are personable and warm, ideal for entertaining and family time. (Sq ft: 2,031)
