The brief: to showcase vintage furnishings and modern art by creating a neo-classical background

Although purchased 13 years ago, the home has constantly been improved to suit the family’s needs but, in the latest incarnation, the designer remodeled the main level from an open floor plan to a more enclosed set of private spaces. In the process, creating a classic backdrop with neo-classical details including an enfilade that leads the eye from the entry to the very back of the house.

New walls were raised, wide entry ways were shortened creating fourteen-inch thick walls and framing the views from room to room with custom mouldings. At this stage the home started to feel like an apartment in the fifth arrondissement. And as the decoration plans began, adding large scale murals layered yet another level and set the mood firmly for a classic European feel. But the surprise comes in so many levels as the designer started placing collectible modern furnishings around the house and the cherry on the cake goes to the mid-century modern art collection deftly juxtaposed against the classical murals and mouldings creating the perfect diaoluge between 18th century Europe and the world in the 20th and 21st century.
