“How to make an interior elegant, warm, timeless and modern?”

An empty nester couple with a modern art collection purchased two units in a new condominium building. They hired our bosses at Powell Kleinschmidt and we went to work drafting, supervising and designing for two recognized modern masters. Two entries figure at either end of long a served/service hallway with narrow service spaces placed along the demising wall and the broad living spaces on the window side. Rich, dark brown Kentucky wood floor panels, laid in a running bond, stretch down the 90 foot long hallway and unify the generous layout. Custom millwork panels enliven and animate the walls. A custom table designed by Don Powell sits in front of a Roy Lichtenstein. Two custom round dining room tables (with sand bags hidden in their bases) allow for an adult’s and a children’s table. A smoothly painted sideboard cantilevers from the wall. Don put me in charge of details like the painted shoji screen which helps create a tranquil vibe and covers developer spec windows. The bar is a stunning sodalite granite sandwiched bewteen a textured stainless steel screen and lush velvet cabinet covers. (Sodalite granite will NEVER go out of style.)
