A little Southern tradition in the heart of Manhattan. When a couple with roots in Nashville and Atlanta, remodeled the wife's single lady one bedroom into their married three bedroom home, we blended their traditional furnishings and love of monograms with new eclectic details like kilim rugs and abstract art, to achieve a fresh uptown look perfect for their young family. With two girls under the age of four and a very open floor plan, every space had to be beautiful but also handle sticky fingers and buckets of toys. Upholstering the custom sofa with spill-proof fabric and using easy to move x-benches instead of a bulky coffee table in the living room, allows the main living space to adjust easily from playdates to dinner parties in a snap.
