The Bachelor Pad

We recently began working with a new client in NYC, a bachelor and friend that just moved into a really great apartment in Nolita. The busy client already owns a few great pieces such as a Noguchi Coffee table, an animal Skin rug, and a brown leather sofa, and needed some help organizing and pulling it all together. The space itself is really great with 20' tall ceilings and skylights in the living area, exposed brick walls, and a private roof deck - the only thing it is lacking is storage! We started off by accessing the clients need for an attractive storage solution to organize his books and kitchen supplies, as well as his want for a more pulled together and attractive aesthetic. Above is the fabric scheme from Ralph Lauren and Barclay Butera for Kravet. Below is Benjamin Moore's Northern Air, which will be the wall color for living area.

I always think a gray is the best neutral and this steel blue/gray will be a fresh and masculine backdrop for artwork and looks fabulous with the exposed brick walls and wood stain for the shelving system.

The shelving system will span a 13' wide wall and will have a small desk and plenty of storage for a home office.

We're taking the tailored masculine scheme into the bedroom as well with this cozy duvet cover and shams from Pine Cone Hill.

We'll keep you posted as the project progresses!
