A Contemporary Palace Along Riverside Drive

Before & After

When an Upper West Side family decided to transform their outdated duplex along Riverside Drive, they tasked Decor Aid with creating a spacious, modern home that could accommodate their expanding family.

Before

After

By reconfiguring the duplex’s layout, we were able to establish areas of the home where everyone could gather communally: a family room prime for movie night and a small study.

Before

After

We differentiated the family area from the reading nook with a bright and abstract area rug from Horchow, wrapping around a sectional from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams; a round, hand-woven area rug created a relaxed, but sophisticated feel in the library. For a flexible seating option, we sourced a bench from Lillian August, conjoining the two spaces.

Before

After

Being along Riverside Drive, this family decided to give their space naturalistic design elements, a reclaimed wood table being the perfect match for this aesthetic. Lucite materials throughout donate a breathable, feather-weight feel.

Jonathan Adler light fixtures, such as the dining room’s chandelier, were placed throughout the duplex. Ultimately, we managed to create a chic, contemporary palace for this adoring family.
