This Upper East Side Pre-War, purchased by a family with two young children, was in need of an extensive renovation having been untouched since the early 80s. We transformed this dark relic into a stunningly beautiful home with multifunctional rooms; a casually elegant space full of bespoke furnishings, unique vintage pieces, and unexpected touches. As this family intended to make this their home for years to come, we designed the rooms with the present and future in mind; creating rooms like the children’s playroom which can easily convert into a media room when the children are older. We also chose to open up the kitchen to make one great room, adding glamorous touches more commonly seen in a living room, as this is where the family spends most of their time together.
