Nestled among natural rock outcroppings, this traditional pool cabana provides a year-round entertaining space for a Westchester, New York, family. The cabana is designed to complement the architecture of the shingle-style home.
To create a more inviting common space, designers kept the color palette neutral to reflect the natural light coming in through the wall of windows and not detract from the fabulous view of New York City. Throughout the space, small details add splashes of color and personality to the loft.
In this New York City townhouse both the architecture and the furnishings have been executed in a minimal and modernist manner, but the client requested a house that also references the Moroccan aesthetic of which he is especially fond. The interior’s palette of browns, blues and warm golds complements the architecture, with just enough accessories and incidentals to reference the Moroccan sensibility of the architectural details.
That gorgeous bluestone continues into the backyard, where an intimate dining area and swimming pool give the owners room to unwind. With lush greenery all around, this outdoor space is easily a sweet escape from the city.
