When interior designer Allison Petty of Homepolish walked into the sprawling empty loft of her new clients, she knew it could be a blank canvas for playful furnishings. The brick walls had been whitewashed, and a new gray floor was just calling out for a colorful textured rug (or three).
The result — recently featured by Lonny — is a bold, party-ready apartment that also suits the day-to-day lives of its occupants, a family of three who recently moved back to New York City after several years in Miami.
Petty broke up the 1,500-square-foot space into distinct seating groups — putting two L-shaped sofas back to back to create areas for television-watching and lounging, and using a bold Union Jack rug to define a third seating space in the living room.
The home’s color scheme is varied but cohesive — textured grays offset pops of red and blue, with brass accents.
Sheepskins add a touch of comfort and warmth to the modern dining area. The kitchen’s muted tones and gray lacquered cabinets provide a visual palette cleanser in the midst of the home’s colorful art-inflected details.
The rear wall of the master bedroom is covered in a black crocodile-textured wallpaper. A plum-colored area rug also helps to anchor the master space.
In the nursery, a red glass chandelier boldly contrasts with the aqua wall color and playful teepee.
