New York City

1,300 sf apartment
2 bedroom / 2 bathroom

This colorful apartment in Riverdale NYC in The Bronx, was designed for a nature-loving photographer, his wife and their cat Bringing cheerful colors into the space, to complement their art and accessories was our jumping off point of style inspiration.

Maximizing storage for this couple was important as they were downsizing from a larger home. Creative custom cabinetry, such as using a niche to build a storage and display unit for dishes, helped provide useful space. Addressing the unique challenges of living in a NYC apartment with a pet was another challenge. A discrete space for the litter box was creatively designed into the hallway custom cabinetry, ensuring both functionality and a clean aesthetic.

During the height of covid, this home renovation provided solace for this couple, who like many, were adapting to remote work. Creating separate workspaces in this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment was a priority! The second bedroom became the main office / guest room, while the other work space was strategically placed in the large primary bedroom.

The kitchen was completely renovated in order to open the space and bring in more natural light. The playful, colorful backsplash ‘pops’ off of the more muted, classic cabinetry design, and the copper farm sink adds character and texture to the room.
