That’s right, we’re back with another stunning living room inspiration, this time with a New York City apartment that was transformed into a sophisticated oasis by architect Lee F. Mindel. This home design has an elegant and luminous space and is everything you could expect from a classy Upper East Side apartment.
Keep scrolling and get inspired by this luxurious living room:
Mindel was struck by the city views when he first toured the two-bedroom residence, located on the 12th floor of a new building and boasting a pair of breathtaking terraces. Inspired by moody skies and the rooftops and façades of the surrounding buildings, he envisioned the interiors as an abstract panorama of grays.
Today that subdued neutral palette—it can almost read as mauve or the softest blue depending on the light—extends into every room and corridor. The fabrics, the finishes, and the furniture assume an architectural presence in the muted, pared-down interiors.
The living room is anchored by a pair of mirrored folding screens custom designed in the spirit of Serge Roche. “They’re set on wheels and suggest movement and space beyond,” says the architect.
Now let’s check out the rest of the apartment because it’s really stunning and worth seeing.
Another of Mindel’s ingenious ideas was to arranged 18 Charlotte Perriand sconces, each with a pivoting shade, along one side, and lacquered the opposite wall for a mirror effect.
So easy to fall in love…
