This glamorous restoration project is for a client with four floors in The Beresford, a historic Georgian Co-op on Central Park West in Manhattan. Some of the main design goals in this project were to restore the integrity of the structure and to freshen up the interior spaces. To do this we lightened the spaces with paint, and more effective electric and natural light; we changed out the low 70s lounge furniture for more accommodating pieces; and we edited the lifelong collection of objects and books as well as provided better storage solutions for them.
Tilev Design oversaw the restoration of most of the windows, ceilings, and walls in the apartment,which were badly water damaged. In addition to restoring the structure, we also updated the materials, furnishings, and fixtures in the apartment to meld with the existing eccentric decor. The material and color palette is bold and bright with lots of animal prints to match the clients legendary personality and taste. We worked closely with the her in the selection of all the furnishings.
I was responsible for measuring, drafting, and compiling a bid set for the entire apartment. I also played a supportive role to the lead designer by sourcing fabrics, furniture, and materials form the D&D, A&D, NYDC, and other to the trade showrooms. I was responsible for furniture and fabric orders, and oversaw custom window treatment and upholstery productions. I also managed the archival reframing and restoration of a collection of 60 iconic photographs that will be a visual chronicle of the clients legacy.
