In a New York City apartment with a spectacular view of the city skyline, designer Amy Lau brought in “gorgeous, sweeping curves and natural materials” in the design of the built-in wet bar to offset the linear visuals. “Organic shapes and materials strikes the perfect balance with the cityscape,” she says.
The glass door shower in this contemporary bathroom features large tile walls, a built-in shelf and maneuverable stainless steel shower head. From the shower you can view the floating vanity with vessel sink illuminated by matching sconces around the mirror. The black tile floor contributes to the masculine feel of the design while a curved accent wall adds a smooth element to the sharp design.
Wood cabinets create a polished frame for this kitchen design. A curved island with neutral granite countertop adds nice shape against the sharp lines of the cabinetry and creates an eat in space. Gray leather cushion upholstery on the wood bar chairs pulls from the cool tones in the countertop. A stainless steel range adds a modern finish over the stovetop.
Curved French doors open up the interior space to the stunning backyard, which comes alive at night. Market lights strung from the house to the tree create a warm, romantic atmosphere. Speakers hidden behind the Japanese maple trees softly filling the air with music and several plants that perfume the air.
The detailed rosette ceiling in the center of the room features inset antique mirrors framed in acanthus leaf moldings. The center ceiling medallion is embellished with a blue crystal chandelier. The archway leading into the family room is paneled and finished to match the cabinetry. On both sides of the arch, the designer centered two tall China cabinets with curved mullion doors.
Chic blue pendants add a touch of updated style to this traditional kitchen. The curved design on two cabinet doors and the curved back of the barstools mimic the shape of the pendants, creating a sense of unity within the space.
The curved back of the sofa in this Mediterranean-style living room thoughtfully echoes the gentle curve of the stairs in the adjacent room. The dark wood of the doors and exposed ceiling beams grounds and further dignifies the space.
