1. The new computer-milled medallions on the double-height living room walls interpret the original (and restored) barrel-vaulted coffered ceiling pattern of circles and octagons.
2. The front door is on axis with the double-height wall of windows and door to an exterior Juliet balcony.
3. The new computer-milled medallions descend down the side walls and decrease in scale to suggest a floating lightness.
4. Dark wood floors recede and ground the floating medallions. Intentional pops of color integrate the rug, chairs, art and accessories, and undercut the grandeur of the space.
5. Original doors separate the foyer and staircase from the large living room, which is divided into areas for working and sitting, unified by one long narrow colorful antique rug.
6. The traditional millwork in the study, painted a warm off-white, contrasts the crisp modern medallion pattern in the living room and adds warmth and texture to the space.
7. A pair of doors with an outdoor terrace looks onto the street corner, garden below, and evening sunset light to the west.
8. Open shelves in the kitchen make the space feel larger, and a mix of stainless steel, glass, stone, wood and tile give the small room character with the subtle diverse palette.
9. A custom vertical spiral chandelier connects the restored original steel stair in the foyer to the second floor.
10. White lacquered figures that abstract the octagons and circles of the original plaster barrel-vaulted ceiling downstairs adorn the walls of the bedroom with two exposures.
11. An Eileen Gray illuminated mirror hangs in the modern bathroom with appropriate finishes and fixtures for this pre-war building.
12. The front door looks axially through the double height living room to a door with balcony and a two story wall of windows with southern exposure.
13. The medallions decrease in size and density as they descend from the coffered ceiling to transition from the grand coffered ceiling to the scale of decorative objects.
14. Each of the individual components of the wall medallions are computer milled and keyed on this template for simple installation and to ensure proper spacing.
