BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES THE ART COLLECTORS' HOME LIVING ROOM

BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES THE ART COLLECTORS' HOME LIVING ROOM


This home is the top floor of an 1900 Brownstone in the heart of Hoboken NJ. We kept the brownstone charm with beautiful crown moldings, high ceilings and furnishing and paired it with very modern elements.
We transformed it into a modern apartment for a young energetic couple who collect art pieces throughout their travels. They wanted to integrate most of their personal art collection and to make the apartment as modern and high tech as possible while keeping the classic brownstone flair.
The art collection is present throughout the entire space in the form of paintings, objects, memorabilia but also furnishing. 
 

 

How we did it? 

Those are some of the main pieces that helped us transformed this raw place into a high-end modern living-room. 

-The Charcoal Walnut hardwood flooring upgrades the look of the living room. It provides a rich warm tone to the space. 

-The rug is art to the floor. Its unique abstract design stands out in the decor bringing texture and warmth. 

-The custom-made cabinetry in gray oak and glass showcases an eclectic art collection of curiosities and memorabilia. Making these built ins perfect conversational pieces!

-The French Fireplace mantel inspired by Louis XVI design in Carrara marble enhances the architecture of this classic brownstone room. A special highlight is added by a custom mosaic loop design in white & grey glass with variations of gold. 

- The one of a kind Artwork is original and sets the tone with a vivid color. 

-The elegant window treatment were custom-made. They frame the windows beautifully and add a soft layer to the space.

The Inspiration behind the Design

Our french born client was inspired by The Greenwich Hotel in Manhattan. Where each room feels like an apartment, luxurious and casual at the same time.

After Master bedroom
We brought in this casual luxury with the mix of the whole woods, rich fabrics, leathers, metal and lighting.

Furnishings in the bedroom are drawn from a wide range of cultural influences, from Maroccan hand-loomed Wool rugs , to English Leather Accent wall tiles or Italian designed Bed.

Marie Burgos Design also wanted to create a space with comfort.

The millwork for the Nightstands and cabinetry and all window drapes and pillows were entirely custom-made by Marie Burgos Design for the client space and needs.

10 fabulous kitchen islands!

Today's kitchens are growing rapidly in size and many designers are adding kitchen islands along with the industrial appliances, state of the art cabinets and custom countertop designs that have gained recent popularity. The kitchen island has come a long way from the days of a single small table in the middle of the kitchen. Now, kitchen islands are often elaborated becoming fully equipped ‘kitchens within a kitchen', complete with sink, stovetop, and refrigerator. One of the most important benefits of the kitchen island is the additional work space, storage area and room for extra appliances that it provides.

Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. In many instances kitchen islands become central to the overall kitchen design and add a luxurious touch to your kitchen. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle (sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop) and make it more efficient.

Here are 10 amazing kitchen islands options for perfect kitchens!
