What’s New

Tilton Fenwick Puts a Fresh Spin on an Artist's Loft in SoHo

With their trademark being a fresh, contemporary take on traditional design, decorators Suysel dePedro Cunningham and Anne Maxwell Foster made their name by employing bold colors and patterns in even the most mundane spaces. Then came a third leap of faith: a client who had just purchased an artist’s loft downtown and wanted to turn it into a warm, kid-friendly environment for her young family.

Inside Painter Robert Kelly's Bowery Studio

The timeworn but still elegant façade of Beethoven Hall, a circa-1860 meeting hall and community center just off the Bowery, hardly evokes the archetype of the quintessential New York artist’s loft. But once inside the live-work space of abstract painter Robert Kelly, you are suddenly immersed in the now. Or at least that’s how it looks on first glance.

Listen closely at break of day, and you might just hear a collective “Om” as thousands of yogis greet the sun.

Interior Designer Elizabeth Martin Designs a Family-Friendly Residence in Silicon Valley

While some designers would consider appointing a home from scratch as the ideal situation, Martin believes that incorporating the homeowners’ existing pieces goes a long way. “You can have the most beautiful new furniture, but without personal effects, something’s missing."

Bernard Trainor Artfully Transforms a Rugged Carmel Property into a Picturesque Landscape

“It is such a crazy, difficult site to grow plants on,” notes Trainor of the inhospitable home site in Carmel. “We had to make things grow in rocky crevices. But, in a very rugged environment, you still have to give the client super-livable, comfortable spaces.”

Interior Designer Angela Free Transforms a 1920s Marina Home

To achieve an interior that was classic and tailored yet modern (a Free signature), the designer relied heavily on subtle colors and textures. Throughout the home, walls and ceilings were treated to soothing, contemporary paint colors; the blue-gray palette evokes the foggy neighborhood. “There’s a seamless flow between the indoors and outdoors,” notes Free.

“There’s a real sense of community here,” says a patron who stops in several times a week. “We know the cheesemonger’s name, and he knows our daughter’s favorite cheese.” That’s just the kind of place Milgrom was striving for, one that values transparency, connection and intimacy.

Rhapsody in Blues

True to her modern Mexican sensibility, Larah Moravek’s client wanted her home to be casual and chic, not too uptight or tailored. And she loves blue. “We began with a broader color palette,” says the designer, “but in the process of refining the furniture arrangements, we began to narrow it down to a range of blues and neutrals.” Although the living and dining rooms both have off-white walls, the fabrics occupy a narrow, cool band of the spectrum; the foyer, the library, and the master bedroom are all different shades of blue, which finds its way into the boy’s room as well.
