This elegant 2 bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side is Seawright’s own home and came with the challenge of creating additional storage and efficiency. The design was inspired by all of Seawright’s favorite creative influences from Coco Chanel to Pauline de Rothschild. Seawright made sure the space could be used as a sort of design lab where she can try out new ideas whether trying out the design of a custom piece of furniture or auditioning a new vendor. In the second bedroom a custom library was added with a cerused oak finish, creating a multi-functional room; switching from home office to library to guest room. In addition, Seawright found space to add six additional closets; a must in any New York City renovation.
