What were design issues you wanted to address?

Even though the room had large windows, the original furnishings did not accentuate the quality of natural light in the space. Brightly painted white and cream walls, a reflective dark floor finish, and French blue curtains lightened the room.

What design obstacles did you face in this remodel?

When we the removed silk wall upholstery, thousands of staples that held it in place took chunks out of the plaster walls. Our painters had to skim coat and “float” the walls and sand away any texture to create a really smooth surface for the stripes. Since the painted stripes were meant to be an art installation in the space,
Willem Racke's decorative painting team spent a week drawing the stripes in pencil, using painter’s tape, levels and lasers. It was quite a production but it had to be perfect.

What are the "hidden gems" that made a big difference?

Curves were integrated into the space to offset the rigid linear quality of the room's painted stripes. The Vladimir Kagan-inspired sofa is kidney shaped, the bedside lamps are curvy and round and the custom bench at the foot of the bed has carved round scroll ends.
