QUIET SOPHISTICATION – NEW YORK STYLE
It is always intriguing to see how a top interior designer moves fluidly from creating homes in leisure communities in Florida and Martha’s Vinyard to the requirements of big city living. Somehow, Gil Walsh of Gil Walsh Interiors has managed it with aplomb………and in the process designed a 5,000 square foot New York City duplex apartment in a contemporary style, but with timeless sophistication.
Beyond the obvious comfort and tranquility considerations, two requirements were paramount. First the new design had to incorporate a growing and ever-changing collection of top level art. To accommodate this, Walsh and her team used light colored walls that would give any piece its full due against a highly versatile backdrop……and in some cases, oak parquet squares were used as most unconventional but highly effective wall treatments.
And secondly the exquisite view of the Manhattan skyline had to be front and center……especially on a clear, calm, moonlit evening. Therefore Walsh kept window treatments to a minimum……..allowing only enough to give her clients privacy when needed. Talk about rooms with a view….these are to swoon over.
The midtown location – Manhattan’s UN Plaza – is perfectly situated for easy access to all of the best that the city has to offer, while coming home offers Gil Walsh’s clients instant serenity and surroundings in which to unwind and relax in optimum style.
