Santa Monica, CA | New York, NY
We created our version of the classic "bachelor pad" in this loft conversion at the 1866 American Express Horse Stables building. Conducive to cocktails and entertaining, the unique voice of each space resonates with a liveliness inspired by our client. We lined the 70-foot gallery with a blue-tinted mirror and neon installation which sings at night. The progression of intense color culminates with a contrast of old and new with textured brick and antique mirror. Classic and sculptural 1960s and 70s light fixtures shape the envelope while pattern and texture provide the flavors. Boldly-striped draperies suspend from looped ropes and vintage furniture is upholstered in menswear-inspired textiles. The abstract nature photograph adds perspective to a windowless wall and layered rugs frame seating arrangements. We composed a gradation of greens in a bedroom with 1940s mint Art Deco lamps and Farrow & Ball's intense "Calke Green." Our client's enthusiasm enabled us to push beyond conventional interior design tropes and achieve a strong personalized point of view.
