The Apartment Creative Agency completed an impressive conversion of a generously-sized apartment in Soho, New York: “Located on coveted, cobblestone Crosby St, you may recognize the space from the film Devil Wears Prada, where it was filmed as the cinematic expression of a modern designer home. This unique home boasts 13’ ceilings, Corinthian columns ,sculptural stacked-wood fireplace, Marc Sadler Boffi kitchen, Crestron controlled multi media system, plus great light and views and p/t doorman. Located in an 1882, six-story, red brick building with an intriguing past as department store, the discreet building provides a well appointed lobby, key lock elevators and part time doorman“. Aside from the official description, we found out that the apartment is currently available for sale ($5.2 million) or for rent ($19,500). Authentic and elegant custom finishes, surprising decorating details and an overall relaxed feel seem to make this place defy the surrounding urban jungle.
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings. Describing their difference at a somewhat rudimentary level: contemporary makes reference to the present-day – that which is current and of the time – whereas modern alludes to the past, specifically that of Modernism (post the First World War) and mid-20th century modern design and architecture.
There are a few specific styles and themes which come alive in the bedroom with the addition of a green tinge. The first that comes to mind is here is the exotic tropical style. Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair, green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway. Another look that revels in green is the beach style and you can replace the traditional white and blue blend with white, green and a hint of orange to create a unique and exquisite bedroom.
