10 West 86th Street


This pre-war on the Upper West Side was in need of an upgrade. It was caked with off-white paint and unimpressive. Although the Kitchen had been renovated not too long ago, the room was enclosed and felt small. We opened up the apartment and imbued it with the sparkle and flair it was so needing. The Kitchen opens up to the Family/Dining Room and the Family/Dining opens up to the Living Room which were closed off previously so the space flows and is comfortable, a real home. The color palate consists of subdued earth tones, grays, tans and browns providing a background for more colorful accessories. The finishes are focused, elegantly crisp and glistening. It’s the new hip Upper West Side.
