In Chelsea's Walker Tower, Designer David Scott Turns an Art-Filled Apartment into a Showcase of Sumptuous Decor

"When I initially met my client,” decorator David Scott recalls, “he had a loose-leaf file of all his art and furniture. I was deeply impressed and happy to be working for someone who was so organized. The art itself was edgier than I am used to working with, which was another level of excitement for me. It was an opportunity to learn.” Located in Chelsea’s Walker Tower, which was built in 1929 and converted from commercial space to 50 multimillion-dollar lofts in 2013, the apartment not only has considerable art, but also breathtaking views both south and west.

Design Writer and Editor Linda O'Keeffe Reimagines a 1920's Sears Roebuck Kit House in High Falls, New York

I grew up street-smart in London. I window-shopped on my way to school; my favorite toy was a cash register; traffic noise lulled me to sleep. In other words, I was a confirmed city kid. The countryside? Definitely alien territory. As an adult, I’ve always lived and preferred to vacation in cities, and my work has often kept me on the road. Then a few years ago I realized that my NoHo apartment was almost becoming like another hotel room—a pit stop in my peripatetic life.

Rising Star: Peti Lau

Peti Lau didn’t dream of becoming an interior designer. Instead, the Virginia native studied performance art and dabbled in fashion design, although neither turned out to be the right fit. “The importance of how a space can influence people became apparent to me when I discovered Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs,” says Lau. “I found it very inspiring.”
