Because the rest of the home features mostly light shades, the designers chose dark wood finishes for the kitchen to add contrast. The marble backsplash was sourced from a local stone slab provider and cut into rectangular vertical tiles.
The client loves to entertain, so a built-in bar is located next to their dining room space, and a custom fabricated illuminates above. As a nod to the Victorian architecture, a vintage mirror and antique art piece finish the design.
The clean, simple lines of this foyer's console table beautifully echo the Richard Serra prints hung above it. The green glass vases were custom-made for the homeowners' philodendron plants.
The 25th Street residence was re-designed with openness and light in mind. The whole floor plan was opened up and unique materials like hot-rolled steel added a contemporary feel. In this space, the living room bleeds organically into the family room. The hot rolled steel structure in the space is actually a disguised closet that doubles as a magnetic surface for family photos.
The cabinetry in this modern kitchen was custom designed by Geremia Design. The kitchen island is made out of concrete, serving as a unique surface for the kitchen. It is actually Nu-Crete, which is a patented product that doesn't stain.
The master bedroom is tucked away on the top floor of the home, where a clever built-in dresser saves floor space. Textiles are neutral with gold accents, and the circular mirror over the bed is a nice complement to the geometric light fixture.
The master bathroom is in the bottom floor of the home with very little light. So, it was important to keep the finishes white to maintain as much brightness in the space as possible. Custom tile acts as a floor runner towards the bathtub. Artwork purchased from Jessica Silverman gallery completes the space.
This top floor lounge shows off gorgeous views through three huge windows in different sizes. The furniture manages a chic balance between comfort and sophistication.
The inspiration for the living room came from the classic, Victorian architecture and bay windows that faced the street. A custom light fixture made of blue glass can be seen from the sidewalk. The sofa was a vintage find that was re-upholstered in a velvet orange fabric. A highlight for this room is the custom designed fireplace made out of hot-rolled steel.
Geremia Design chose unique finishes for the kid's bathroom, including a penny tile and a copper subway tile. A reclaimed wood built-in cabinet complements the deep brass tones in the tile. Copper tiles will patina over time, adding green tones to the design. It is a fun detail for a kid's bathroom, so they could watch the tile change in front of their own eyes.
The homeowners use their formal living room to entertain guests, so the designers used the fireplace as a focal point. The light palette lets the metallic globes by artist Jeff Zimmerman shine and large plants add a welcome natural vibrancy to the space.
