Set the mood as coastal and relaxed before setting the table. The pergola shelters the terrace from the sun but doesn't block the incredible sea views. Conveniently placed right off the kitchen, this wood dining table has plenty of space for a dinner party.
A stark white waterfall counter seating area matches well with white beamed ceilings and walls. Just through the retractable glass doors, see a huge al fresco dining table. No matter where you choose to enjoy a meal, the view of the Aegean is incredible.
Large sofas provide plenty of seating in this living room. Family and guests will want to sit and stare at the view of the Aegean sea from the large picture window. White furnishings, walls and beamed ceilings are tranquil and calming.
Dual vessel sinks and mounted LED mirrors are a modern design element of this master bath. A desk area connects the bath to the bedroom, which is also visible through glass behind the sink area. All by design so that ocean views can be enjoyed from any space.
A walk-in closet next to the photographer’s studio space in a New York City loft features two frosted glass panels. The design of the industrial loft uses wall planes to sculpt the light and make window-less areas feel airy. The red chairs were designed by Donald Judd and the floors are American white oak planks. The project by Desai Chia Architecture won a 2018 AIA Institute Honor Award for interior architecture.
A New York City industrial loft was redesigned as a live-work space for a photographer. An entry vestibule leads to a reception area for clients. The walk-in closet connects to a bedroom. American white oak planks are used for the flooring, cabinetry and wall paneling in the minimalist space. The project by Desai Chia Architecture won a 2018 AIA Institute Honor Award for interior architecture.
Home is all about family. It’s about creating a space where every member of the family feels represented, connected, and safe. Of course most of that happens outside of the realm of interior design, but when it’s reflected in the design of the interior, that’s when a space becomes truly special. Nestled away in a quiet corner of Brooklyn, New York, one home manages to capture all of these things spectacularly. In it, David Land (http://www.davidaland.com/), a well-known photographer and video director, lives with his husband, author Rumaan Alam (http://rumaanalam.com/) and their sons, Simon and Xavier. With family roots in Russia, Bangladesh, and African American heritage, the diversity of the family provides a fertile ground for design that is beautifully representative with a melange of cultural pieces, family heirlooms and items collected during travels.
