About the Project

With coveted NYC river and cityscape views, this dramatic apartment’s monochromatic neutral color scheme allows the outdoors to take center stage.  For a study adjoining the primary bedroom, white oak flooring establishes the theme. Furnishings are a nubby cream weave, and window coverings are full-height semi-sheers in the same tones. Adding texture and interest are 3-dimensional throw pillows and a beige and cream designer throw. The coffee table’s pop of walnut adds contrast.

But the star here is the built-in desk and bookcase, rendered in natural rift cut white oak. Drawers are flat slab with sleek bronze bar pulls. The protruding 2” thick desk top aligns with the 2” wood counters atop the drawers, providing room for a monitor and TV. Shelves and stiles are also 2″ thick, lending substance and continuity to the design. Recessed LED light strips highlight the decorative accessories.

Leading to the bedroom is a floor-to-ceiling pocket door and tall storage cabinet with doors, both in the same rift cut white oak. They frame a view of the bed, whose platform and headboard repeat the soothing material choice. The headboard boasts integrated lighting, outlets with USB ports, and attached nightstand drawers that float above the floor.
