An Upper East Side Family Apartment

Before & After

When an Upper East Side family learned that their entire apartment building would be undergoing some serious renovations, they decided to take the opportunity to redesign the interior of their apartment. They got in touch with Decor Aid, and asked that we transform their space into a cohesive and vibrant space that could fit within the confines of their contract with the landlord.

A new paint job was the first step in breathing new life into this apartment. By sourcing a menagerie of neutral tones, we were able to create a calm and tranquil space for this family.

The family hadn’t purchased new furniture since their children were born, and so we started entirely from scratch in terms of sourcing. In the living room, a Room & Board sectional is framed by tables from Dot & Bo. For a splash of color, we picked out a chartreuse armchair from ABC Home.

One of the major redesign decisions that the parents made was to switch bedrooms with their growing children. Properly establishing new bedroom spaces for the entire family was paramount to the success of this project. By commissioning a custom-fabricated closet space which also functions as a media console, we were able to provide an amicable space-saving solution for the entire family.

The parents knew that having enough storage for their children would be paramount to getting them to put away their toys and clothes. And so we sourced bed frames wit storage options, along with a floating desk, which can double as a nightstand for both beds.

Being able to show off their souvenirs from traveling was a priority for our clients. And so we added in a set of mid-century media units, giving the entire family a chic storage option.

To give the master bedroom dashes of color and texture, we selected a removable wallpaper from Tempaper, along with a custom-fabricated reclaimed wood built-in.
