Irving Place Residence
Project brief: Fully furnish and style a 1-bedroom, 1-bath rental apartment for a young professional, incorporating clients' existing art collection and select furniture. Client collects landscape photography and vintage vinyl. Gravitates towards masculine, mid-century furniture, clean lines/grid logic, and off-tone primary colors. Requested a young and modern space, but with warmth and character to counteract "box-in-the-sky" architecture of rental unit. Original scope expanded from strictly decor to include minor improvements such as painting, plaster repair, upgrading faucets and door hardware, etc.
Status: Pending arrival of select artwork and accessories. Project completion scheduled for mid-March.
Budget: Mid-range with select investment pieces.*
(*note: due to the client's demanding work schedule, CBD handled 100% of contact with and supervision of tradespeople, purchasing, delivery coordination with vendors and with building's management company, inlc. related paperwork, in addition to providing design services such as concept development, renderings and styling.)
