Living Space

Scarsdale This living space evolved into a double height room that opens up to a loft on the second floor. The main focal point is a huge painting by Jackie Saccoccio, which hangs over the angled fireplace mantel. The entire back wall has windows and French doors that open to an impressive patio. The homeowner decided against window treatments to keep the space as light-filled as possible. A glass railing was used for the stairwell and the second-floor balcony for the same reason, letting the light shine through to every corner.

Scarsdale This living room is seen immediately upon entering the foyer. Because of this, it was important for the art over the fireplace to serve as a focal point and be a powerful image. Artist Ian Davenport was commissioned to provide a painting in two panels that could be opened from side-to-side with an electronic art lift to hide the TV when not in use. The lighting in this home are also pieces of art. The one in the living space is an Arctic Pear chandelier from Ochre.

Harrison This living space was designed to act as the heart of the home. The homeowners can eat, drink, relax, and entertain thanks to the bar height custom table with stools. The windows and doors are painted a soft black giving the space a clean and modern contrast to the white beamed ceiling. The otherwise neutral palette is treated to a jolt of blue with the sofas allowing the orange pillows to really pop.
