Tyler's Design Tips
"Don't be afraid to mix metals, and experiment with fun jewel toned colors. Use a mix of hard and soft-lined furniture paired with shiny and matte fabrics to create interest," Wisler says.
The Most Difficult Client
Wisler calls his son Paolo "his most difficult client," but also his most satisfying. For his son's room, Wisler didn't want a room that screamed "kid," but wanted to incorporate whimsy. He found balance with grey-hued walls punched up with pops of red and apple green in the furniture and window treatments. Another happy client!
Keeping a muted color palette in a room is always a sure-fire way to ensure a sense of serenity, especially in a bedroom. Harmonious shades of aqua bounce around the room with eye-catching textural and pattern changes.
Whimsical Master Bedroom
Having a sense of humor and whimsy is a quality that bodes well in design, as it can help elevate a beautiful room into an extraordinary room. Bold patterns and unusual accessories layered over a saturated colors bring this master bedroom to th enext level.
A Great, Great Room
A neutral color palette and smart space planning is the foundation unifying this large space, despite it being so multi-functional. Natural Belgian linens collide with supple ivory leather and rich chocolate ultra suede to give not only giving textural interest but practicality to this all-purpose room.
Spice-Inspired Living Room
Smart and sophisticated, this modern living room celebrates the colors of the Turkish spice bazaar. Vibrant hues of saffron and paprika upholstery upon deep coffee-colored frames are peppered with accessories in bright aqua.
Neutral Made New
Shades of oatmeal, ivory and beige don’t necessarily mean boring, as this comfortable and casually chic seating area proves. Gorgeous cream-lacquered nesting tables and floor lamp sit proudly alongside the intricate detail of a cloisonne drum stool, set off by lush printed linen drapery panels.
A Place for Reading and Relaxation
This tranquil reading space is quiet and relaxing. Wisler used a petrified teak wood stump aside a dark tobacco rattan lounge chair and ottoman. A hand-blown glass lamp illuminates the area.
Ottoman-Inspired Living Room
Celebrating true Ottoman aesthetics, this room is grounded in rich tones of gold and garnet. The traditional Turkish area rug inspired the opulent selections of velvet, sateen and silk for the sofa and pillows.
An Artful Entryway
Art is just as important in creating an environment as the furniture and fabric selections. Wisler created and commissioned a piece with the master of glass blowing, Dale Chihuly, then complimented the work with more brightly-hued pieces.
Taking full advantage of the spectacular water views, this large celadon colored sectional gazes out over the docks. There’s plenty of circulation in this room as the traffic patterns lead you right outside. Simplicity in colors and patterns allows the unique forms of the furniture to take center stage.
A Pop of Color
Sometimes it's the lack of color that creates interest in an environment, especially when you deliberately pop the neutrality with a pair of bright red chairs. This space is meant to be a quiet oasis from the busy city streets without losing any sense of personality.
Refined Neutral Bedroom
With unobstructed views of the East River, gorgeous modern art and a sprawling terrace, the last thing you want to do is overpower a room with distractions in the way of loud patterns and colors. The bisque-colored kid leather bed holds court in the room, but doesn’t deter from the splendor its surroundings offer.
Less is more a lot of times, and this is a prime example of how the modern shapes of this lounge chair and ottoman need no more than a sexy end table to hold their own in the corner of this master bedroom. The undulation patterning in the carpet and soft blue-grey tones in the room are a reflection of the Atlantic waters swirling around just steps away.
