GREEN ON MY MIND
Probably because a vivid green dominates half of the color palette, and because I’ve been writing St. Patrick’s Day –related posts lately (like this one and this one), this incredible chinoiserie chic apartment in NYC’s W Hotel Residences that I toured as well as photographed came to mind today. Decorated by Meg Braff, the apartment is one of 223 residences spanning the 23rd floor to 56th floor of the Gwathmey Siegel & Associates–designed glass tower at 123 Washington Street in Tribeca.
In contrast with the metropolis that is New York City and the contemporary architecture of the building and apartment’s interior, Meg Braff‘s jewel box of a space transports to another era and climate, namely – I dare say – : a super stylish, 1970’s Palm Beach suite. The juxtaposition of the urban exterior to the tropical interior works beautifully: grasscloth wallpaper covers the home’s public spaces, and the walls of the private space, painted a bold chartreuse, frame the Residence’s dramatic views. From the headboard in the Bedroom to the Asian-influenced paintings, sculpture, and furniture in the Living Room, chinoiserie is integrated throughout the home, paired with animal prints, lucite, and flokati rugs. Only the jaw-dropping skyline and river views give any indication that the home is in Manhattan.
