Robert Couturier has completed the design of an intricate modern apartment overlooking Central Park in New York. The opulent crib has a total surface of 450 square meters and hosts an impressive contemporary art collection. The most “fabulous” interior within the penthouse is an open plan living room with floor to ceiling windows. It is here that the overwhelming skylight views blend in with the original furniture elements and bleached oak wood floors, resulting in a visual treat.
Each room comes with its special design features, which is why the transition between spaces can be characterized as visually acute. The bedrooms are well defined through different color themes, enhanced by modern art works integrated in the overall design scheme. No matter where you look, this New York penthouse is filled with inspiring decorating ideas- enjoy the virtual tour and feel free to share your favorite!
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.
As we alluded to earlier, green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
