New York is a put the clients enjoy for its diversity and proximity to spouse and children,’ says Susan. ‘They desired to get rid of the dated wallpaper and constructed-in cabinetry even though operating with the existing flooring-to-ceiling home windows and purely natural light. The shoppers have an eye for shade and complex textiles, and my task was to make a dwelling that embodied exuberance, type, shade and definitely replicate their globetrotting lives.’
The areas had been originally built out for a young pair with two compact toddlers, so the problem was reworking it from a baby-proofed space to somewhere to entertain and rest. ‘The former homeowners still left some products that we had to determine on possibly maintaining or ditching,’ suggests Susan. ‘If we stored them, I insisted on revamping them, and in the end the consumers made the decision to “go for it” and only maintain the dining table, which I felt was a good choice.’
Susan sums up the fashion of the inside as a world, chic retreat. ‘The layout element I certainly savored was the introduction of vibrant wallpaper. I beloved introducing potent pattern plays and the use of bold yet sophisticated fabrics and hues. The purchasers experienced a robust attraction to Manuel Canovas fabric and we determined to inject it as accent items. With this in brain I was ready to weave a style and design tale that reflects the clients’ appreciate of world wide furnishings, eclectic/unique touches and their appreciate of range and chic interiors. In their words and phrases, “each area can make its personal particular statement.”’
‘The prior owner utilized darkish stained/wooden grain wallpaper on the entry wall and front doorway, which we chose to get rid of in order to brighten up the house,’ states Susan.
Her hallway strategies revolved about making an fast worldwide feel that sets the tone for the rest of the interior. ‘The Ramayana Blue toile wallpaper by GP & J Baker evokes travelling to far absent destinations, and the classic Venetian mirror coupled with the Moorish mom-of-pearl inlay desk and African Senufo meditation stool established the phase for a dwelling that is stuffed with curated furnishings with an intercontinental flair,’ claims Susan.

And the western views of the historic Gramercy space are wonderful.’
The dwelling area is the primary focal issue of the condominium and is is a person of the clients’ most loved rooms due to its intentional eclecticism. ‘It was about making an inviting room that had warmth, convenience and strategic pops of coloration,’ says Susan. ‘The want to customise was significant as I wanted to make the area feel exclusive.’ Among the Susan’s dwelling home ideas was taking the colour palette from an impression of Moroccan spices, which include cayenne, saffron, paprika and ginger. ‘The personalized tufted couch from Highland Property has a pretty Samuel & Sons treillage embroidered border trim. The customized bergère chairs with a raspberry contrast trim and walnut complete are upholstered in Schuyler Samperton’s Benghal Stripe in berry. I cherished adding the scalloped edge ottoman and brass trim (by Oomph) and applying Carolina Irving’s Zig Zag material in Coral that enhances the saturated orange multi-Mahal rug from Eliko.’ The custom sofa pillows are built with Manuel Canovas fabric.
A focal issue of the place is the gallery wall. ‘I have been close friends and a supporter of Mary Maguire’s function from when she started out selling her artwork at Brimfield a long time back,’ suggests Susan. ‘Her use of antique frames and worldly illustrations or photos is so exceptional and cheerful. I cherished developing a gallery wall with some of her select giclee items.’
Kitchen tips included replacing the pendants with smoked glass Noreen pendant lights and Henson counter stools, equally from Arteriors, to provide a more rustic but refined seem to the kitchen area.

As very well as the avoidance of window treatments, Susan exclusively chose an Arteriors recycled environmentally friendly glass and gold leaf chandelier to cast additional mild when needed and also mirror the purely natural mild that comes in from the west and south. An authentic hand woven/embroidered Otomi table runner (sourced through a trip to Mexico) adds a pop of shade and elevated vibrancy.
Susan also utilised the desk and benches remaining powering by the prior operator and up to date them by making personalized cushions making use of a Kravet hexagon material.
Susan’s house workplace strategies provided introducing a assertion wallpaper. ‘I generally like utilizing wallpaper from my good friend Serena Dugan and when I had the prospect to use her Bahia grass cloth in Onyx/Normal I knew this would be the great house. Inspired by the Brazilian relaxed seashores, the texture/sample makes just one really feel transported to an unique location, nevertheless the excellent town views by the vintage woven rattan desk provide you back to reality. I adore that distinction.’

Principal bed room
The primary bed room is a favourite area of the shoppers. ‘The purpose was to make the place come to feel as though you are surrounded by a sea of coziness and style,’ says Susan. ‘The tailor made upholstered bed from Oomph had the exact shape that I was on the lookout for that fits in the global concept. The Peter Fasano Trotwood Dusk Cloth from John Roselli & Associates offered a contact of femininity without the need of being around the prime. The Matouk zig zag sea applique sheets give sheer luxury and operate properly with the upholstery, as does the customized bolster utilizing Lisa Fine textiles Mughal Floral Monsoon cloth. The personalized window therapy in Jane Churchill’s Silva in Blue from Cowtan and Tout offers the perfect seem barrier and mild defense from the metropolis streets. And the Madeline slipper chair, upholstered in Brunschwig & Fils Les Touches, offers a location to set one’s bag or a place to sip tea and study anything the clients do rather a bit.’
Given that those people remaining in the guest bed room vary in age from toddler to grownup, Susan was eager to include bed room ideas that created a house with extensive ranging charm. ‘This was this kind of a enjoyable room to do the job on. I wanted to make guaranteed the home appealed to all attendees and was comfortable yet experienced an air of cheerful luxury. The Schumacher Thistle Stripe wallpaper was 1 both the shopper and I were straight away drawn to, and the custom mattress in the orchid chinoiserie material appeared like the great complement to the partitions.’
