  • Living With Art in Tribeca

    Modern Art

    Sometimes we take life way too seriously, but living with art definitely helps take that edge off! Designer Ghislaine Vinas worked with the owners of this 15,000 square foot Tribeca warehouse to turn it into a masterpiece that truly makes you not only want to be inside their space, but inside their imagination!

    Colorful Art

    This is the type of home you walk into and smile, the bold primary colors play a major part in that. I think each and every one of us hopes that one day we can be invited to a dinner party here.

      Wall Art

    The bold colors and patterns repeat throughout the home, but the consistency never feels boring or generic. There is a surprise around every corner!  Pairing bold colorful furniture with modern black furniture and graphic pillows will help you create a playful and dynamic living room like the one above. 

    Striped Walls

    Vibrant black and white stripes mix with the playful green accents, really making this room come to life without feeling chaotic. Solid black elements, like a rug or black table lamps are always great grounding elements.

    Modern Kids Decor

    A kid waking up in this room better get up and dance every single morning! Modern children's furniture mixed with playful accessories, graphic art and window treatments can create a room that is both playful and functional.

    Home Decor

    Carpet that looks like grass and life size toy sheep grazing on it...can it get any cuter?! We think not.

    Modern Bathroom

    Soaking in this modern freestanding tub under the neon clouds sounds like a perfect way to end the day.   

    Living with art, not to mention playful art, is a great way to help you feel happy at home, even if you don't live in a super cool loft in Tribeca. Your goal should be to step inside your home, leaving all your worries at the door.

  • Modern Family in New York

     Living In New York City

    When living in New York City there are typically two things you miss...your family and your square footage. This group of young professionals has come together to create a Modern Family in New York. They have renovated this 2700 square foot loft in the ever evolving Bushwick neighborhood and have vowed to live together for ten years. Two years in and they are still going strong.

     Modern Abstract Art

    What's great about having a modern family is that there's bound to be an artist connection! This great piece of abstract modern artwork was created by the boyfriend of one of the residents. Bold graphic artwork adds loads of character into the industrial loft space.

     Modern Black Sofa

    The black modern loveseat sits proudly in front of the industrial windows. Hanging round pendant lights at different levels is a great way to create a sculptural piece in a room with high ceilings.  

     Custom Wardrobe

    We all know that closet space in a loft is hard to come by in NYC. These custom designed wardrobes are are not only functional, but the wood creates some softness as it contrasts against the concrete floor and the crisp white walls.

     Modern Wallpaper

    Flocked damask Vera Wang wallpaper adds layers of visual interest behind the modern bed. A cluster of glass pendants lights add a bit of elegance into the room without being too over the top or too modern.

    Creating a beautiful, comfortable home with your modern family is a sure way to create priceless memories that will last a lifetime.

  • Chalk Wall Art - Ace Hotel NYC

    Chalk Wall Art

    Dana Tanamachi is deservably well known for her chalk wall art in several locations around the country, but we think her work at The Ace Hotel in NYC is beyond cool!

    For her mural in Room 1021 (below) she was inspired by vintage playbills from the Victorian era. Cool, right? Her work is so detailed and so clean.

    Since it's what we do, we're also noticing the cool furnishings of this hotel. If you can't get away to visit The Ace Hotel, adding rich woods to your modern furniture and cool task lighting to your nightstand will help you get the look.

    We thought it might be fun to include a video on Dana's process. Check it out...
