New York City Apartment

I recently competed a New York city apartment for wonderful clients.  The two bedroom pied-a-terre boosts a large living room that allowed us to create two seating areas, complete with a sofa bed for overnight guests.  The apartment is flooded with natural light so we wanted to keep the room as light as possible.  Choosing shades of cream, beige and soft blues, created a tranquil space while reflective accents that include mirrors, glass and light floral accents keeps the light bouncing throughout the space. Window treatments were done in a luscious sheer to soften the windows and highlight the high ceilings. Right off the living room is a home office with another seating area.  To keep the space flowing we selected soothing paint colors and treated the windows with the same fabric.  I love the paint colors we used, Benjamin Moore Prentis Cream & Berber White. The colors not only add a warm backdrop to the rooms, they glow in the late afternoon light as well!

Front Door Colors

There is nothing like a pop of color on your front door to welcome guests!  The color you choose can add to your home's curb appeal as well as set the tone for what's to come once you enter.  I am in the market for a new color for my front door.  With a plethora of options, it's hard to choose!  Here are a few I love with similar recommendations to try. Before you paint, I suggest you order paper samples of the colors and look at them at various times of the day.  

Try Benjamin Moore San Clemente Teal #730

Try Benjamin Moore Banana Cream #275

Foyers are a great space to decorate.  The focal point of your entryway is often the first thing your guests see and can set the tone for your home.  Don't be afraid of a bold color on the walls or a graphic wallpaper, these can add a lot of personality to the space.  Next, a console or chest of drawers with a lamp or set of lamps is nice.  Don't rely solely on the overhead chandelier or light fixture, adding additional lighting can cozy up the foyer.  If space allows, I think a mirror is a must!  So chose an interesting mirror to add above your furniture.  A few accents and a floral can complete the look and become a welcoming space to greet your guests.  Below are a few entryways that boost a ton of personality!
