PR For Interior Designers jwc look at New York for design inspiration!
He’s arguably Marvel’s biggest star and he’s set to return to our screen in yet another wall crawling feature….Homecoming…Spiderman is back, ( yet again, and with the third Spiderman of the decade)!
We haven’t seen the movie, but we feel we know the plot. Boy bitten by spider, boy finds he has superpowers, boy dons red and blue suit and flies through the streets of New York saving those in trouble. And it’s in those friendly neighbourhood streets of New York that we look to for today’s design inspiration.
What is it about New York that makes interior enthusiasts get a little gooey eyed? Perhaps we all have a secret Carrie Bradshaw inside us, or males secretly want to channel Christian Grey’s style..whatever it is, here’s how to get it ..
Let’s set our design aspirations high, no room for studios with a space saving Murphy bed here! All covetable New York apartments have one thing in common…a view! No wall murals needed! Where possible, windows should be left bare so there is limited distraction of the skyline. Ideally the view should look out over other iconic New York landmarks such as Central Park or the Hudson.
New York apartments usually benefit from high ceilings. The luxury of volume can be accentuated by well placed spotlights, usually set in a trio. What we absolutely love about this New York apartment is the breakfast bar which is positioned right across the window, perfect for your morning coffee. The dark marble floor complements the white cabinetry…slick and shiny, Italian made we suspect.
If there is anything that New Yorkers do well, ( well actually there are a lot of things, but you get the sentiment) it’s a hotel bedroom, working this look into apartments is winning. The neutral palette of this bedroom is calming as well as being stylish. The ceiling height is amplified by the oversized headboard and the curtains which give way to a sophisticated window seat.
Whilst we love the chic and the shiny, running an article on New York interiors would not be complete without at least nodding to the fact that the Big Apple practically invented loft living. Let’s celebrate the trend!
The key to rocking this look is to start with the wall, red brick is must have. Obviously, dependent upon where you live, you made need to fake it…see below.
Whilst you might not be working with high ceilings or amazing beam features, a New York apartment requires you to take an eclectic approach. Whilst walls are natural, sofas and rugs are colourful, clashing ideally. Bookish types are in their element here as the style requires shelving which displays literary loves…again, fake your intelligence …..
