Designer Andrew Suvalsky says „The fun part of a project like this is seeing it evolve into something totally unexpected. Usually when designing I envision what the entire completed space will look like and then select elements to fulfill the concept. It’s like putting pieces of a puzzle together, knowing all along what the puzzle will look like when completed.”
In the case of Hudson Views apartment from Upper West Side, New York, presented in the contiguous images, the final design was the result of the same process, but in reverse. Initially, the general plan regarding the furniture and decors was established. All the furniture pieces, finish materials, fabrics and carpets were found or conceived in the first phase of the project .
The owner, a young man whose work keeps him always moving between planes, trains and hotels in New York and East Asia, wanted an apartment to rest after his long trips. A visually pleasant design but in the same time simple, which didn’t include nothing difficult to maintain was important to him. In his personal style he loves special things that have a stand-alone quality such as beautiful state-of-the art bags, perfectly tailored jackets, eye-catching, one-of-a-kind, custom tailored shirts.
In essence, in the selection of the decor pieces we wanted to reflect the owner’s preferences. Many of the decor elements, modern or classic, were custom designed. The selected color palette mainly relies on gray and cream. The idea was that the chromatic and the collection of decor pieces to reflect the youth and joy. Just like the owner!
