When a couple purchased a co-op in Manhattan’s Turtle Bay neighborhood, they came to us with a seemingly impossible request—redesigning poorly lit, claustrophobic space and turning into a bright, spacey urban oasis. And they ever wanted it done on a budget! But our seniors designers, eager as always, were ready to design an affordable, luxurious space. With a subtle, neutral color palette and bright metallic accents, we minimized clutter and maximized the existing elements.
It was key that we sourced with a strict budget in mind, especially since we had to remodel the bathroom, renovate the kitchen and add a second bedroom. Accents and accesories had to be flexible enough to compliment a luxurious city apartment, and so we put our designer discounts to good use.
To get the most bang for our buck, we sourced subway tiles and Carrara marble for the kitchen and bathroom. Even with a slim budget, we were able to create a soothing and mature urban oasis within the city.
