Description by Sofia Zimmerman: Our clients, a couple about to become parents for the first time, had a few simple requests: To make the space feel brighter, make the floors lighter, and re-do the master bathroom, as well as the powder room and guest bath.

Since the space was renovated by a developer several years earlier, we had a good layout to work with (with a couple of exceptions discussed below), so we could really focus just on the cosmetic upgrades and source furnishings in line with the clients’ objectives. Lastly, we were on a tight schedule. The Tribeca condo project started in June 2016, and had to be completed by December 2016 in time for the baby’s arrival.

Prior to the renovation, exposed brick, a mix of colors including off-white, beige, brown, and muted green, and dark hardwood floors made for a more traditional look, but it felt a bit too dark, even during peak daylight hours. Windows were limited to the bedrooms on the south and north sides, so finding ways to bring light into the core — naturally and with better lighting — was essential.

There were several solutions. First, we repainted the entire living area and kitchen white, including the brick wall. The bedrooms were re-painted in almost-white shades of gray. The floors were replaced with bleached oak in a herringbone pattern. We also replaced all lighting (existing MR16 halogen lamps that produced very little light and burned out often) with high-efficiency LEDs with a higher lumen output.

In addition to implementing a new furniture and decor scheme to better suit the young family living here, we improved the circulation plan, overhauled the inadequate lighting design, and renovated three bathrooms.
