A Bohemian Rhapsody
In Trendy Tribeca
Not typical of New York City, a casual yet glamorous ambiance envelopes you from the moment you enter the space of this globe-trotting couple. Vibrant colors, rich textures, and unique patterns can be seen layered throughout this brightly-lit luxurious Bohemian Rhapsody inspired interior I recently completed in the trendy neighborhood of Tribeca. The vibe is informal yet bold with lots of comfortable seating, places to connect and relax, perfect for parties and entertaining!
The all white walls provide a perfect background to let the vividness of the colors express themselves without overpowering the total effect of the design. The main living space – with two full walls of windows plus glass doors to the terrace – needed to be balanced by relaxed cool and primary warm colors. Blues became the predominant color for this particular project because of it's inspiring and calming effect, experienced upon entering the foyer with its eye-catching ombre wallpaper. Through the use of neutral accents and natural textures, I emphasized contrast and then reflected the tones of the color pallette throughout the entire apartment.
True to the boho style, I incorporated a "free and fun feel" to the living room by including distinct colors and patterns in fabrics, prominent graphic paintings, and use of woods and metals. They are collectors of sorts, so I worked with their existing pieces, paying close attention to display them in a way that showcases their unique style – like the exquisite purple pillows and funky glasses that the couple brought back from a family trip to Italy that needed to be a focal point.
I also drew inspiration from the couple's unconventional artistic natures, so there’s an overall international, eclectic feel found in the details of their home like the teardrop lighting, soft metals, textured wood tables and of course –the choice of artwork and accessories. The bold graphic cities artwork was the perfect juxtaposition to Kate Moss self-portrait near the cozy purposely small dining table and chairs. The lucite Globe became a high focal point or “House Candy” part of the couples original collection of accessories. Comfortable, distinctive elegance achieved.
