Open-Ended

The home’s open plan living room is airy and fresh with windows that look out onto the Hudson River. On the wall, sketches of the home’s original design have been framed, a testament to how far the interior design has come in just one year. Ana Claudia and her husband took on a full-scale renovation, bringing this midcentury home fully into the 21st century. In the living room, the fireplace, once an eyesore, makes a bold statement, tiled to resemble the sidewalks of Copacabana. It’s flanked by colorful side chairs upholstered in Kelly Wearstler Graffito fabric.
