Park Avenue Pied-à-Terre

New York, NY

A MODEST NEW YORK APARTMENT in a classic pre-war Park Avenue building provided the blank canvas to design a jewel-box pied-à-terre home. Allison created a palette that would evoke an old-world New York ambiance with unexpected contemporary touches. The apple green Venetian plaster foyer, reminiscent of Central Park, directs the journey to a series of rooms that radiate out in more subtle palettes of blues, browns, and purples. The mix of pieces from antiques to faux-painted pedestals and a curated art collection arranged in the most thoughtful way comprise just a few of the surprising moments throughout the home.

Nothing here is predictable, yet everything settles into place with pleasing details in tandem with moments of levity, resulting in spaces that are both then and now, just like the city itself.
