Becky Shea’s neutral home
The vision for Becky Shea’s luxury home was to create a simple open-concept space. She wanted the space to reflect her organic-modernist aesthetic and at the same time, she wanted it to include her love for New York and the beauty of California.
When you take a look at the rooms, you can see that the neutrals fit together seamlessly with richer, darker accents and that the use of many textiles and accessories create an extra warm, inviting vibe to her home. The design scheme is as Shea says: “Calm, earthy and layered”.
Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan’s eclectic fantasy
When looking at Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan’s luxury home there only come three words to our minds: colourful, eclectic and memorable. Which is exactly what Jonathan wanted to achieve. His buzzwords were: “Bold, glamorous and memorable”. For him, their home was about amping up their style and most definitely not dialing back.
Their home became a museum of the greatest finds over the past quarter-century. From an iconic vintage Paul Evans four-poster bed to a flea-market bust of Michael Jackson. They also added lots of sentimental pieces like the Bjørn Wiinblad chalice they bought on their first trip together in Denmark. Of course, as a designer, some of Jonathan’s pieces had to find a place in their home like the Surrealist porcelain vases, some of which had some ostrich feathers in their design.
How it all fits together in the end? Jonathan used a varied oeuvre but there were no real supporting actors. The thing that made every piece stand out yet fit together seamlessly is the fact that they love everything they added to their luxury home!
Carolyn Pressly’s fun family home
After closing the deal on a condo in Tribeca, Carolyn started her renovations of the space.
“The original space was very dark and cavernous, the layout was weird and there was no overhead lighting. It felt oddly large but had no flow”
Says Carolyn on her first observations of the space.
She stripped down the entire surface of the home, added custom doorways and created four separate wings to reimagine the architecture and to create a better flow throughout her new luxury home.
The wings itself all have their own aesthetic and have all gotten some traditional European influences and nomadic materials. Overall the home has a bold, clean-lined use of space and comes together with the modern spin on the old-world. As you can see the home clearly translates her wanderlust in the use of fun fabrics, textures and furniture pieces from all over the globe.
Because her two kids also have a place in her home, Carolyn tried to add some fun to her designs while still keeping the eclectic spaces refined and well balanced between old and new.
