Upper East Side, New York City
Living in a three bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a tiny, oddly shaped but typical New York City kitchen on the very fashionable Upper East Side was great, but with a growing family, and the social gatherings they enjoy hosting, space was becoming an issue. When the adjacent apartment became available, it was clear that the, “if only this apartment were bigger dream” was coming true. The two apartments were joined. The newly acquired spaces were developed for their more public living spaces and the original apartment was renovated into more gracious bedrooms each with its own private bath area and a Master suite complete with fireplace.
Inspired by the Petit Trianon and the owner’s own French Heritage, 18th century French details abound in the new hard wood floors with inlay and herringbone patterns, trim and door details as well as the furnishings. The end results are truly magnifique.
