This beautiful retreat celebrates handmade and textural accents. Wood-paneled walls, smooth hardwood floors, a custom wet bar and fireplace create an elegant seating area to unwind at the end of the day.

Designer Melissa Greenauer recently transformed a stark, minimalist residence in Manhattan into a warm and elegant retreat from city life for its new owner. The walk-in closet reflects the client’s traditional style with rich wood tones and classic detailing like fluted panels, antiqued glass overhead light fixtures and leather hardware. Carlisle Wide Plank Floors' custom hickory flooring is the foundation of Greenaur's design for this well-organized space.
