RANGE ROVERS Blush

on our Focus pages (p. 26).
In Showroom Style (p. 34),

with lacquered brights.
WHAT S BE TT E R T HAN MAY? WHE N I T ARRI VE S,
we know that June, and thus the onset of summer,
shimmers tantalizingly just over the horizon. More
to the point, there are tints galore to liven up the
basic black that is New Yorks favorite hue. Finally!
Thats why I always look forward to our May-June
issue, when we trumpet color condence with glee.
I believe color is one of designs most mystifyingly wonderful elements.
It cycles from season to season. It changes with the light. Our perceptions of
whats hot, palette-wise, do, too. Just look at our Focus on Blush, this years
coyest, prettiest pink. And dont miss our Showroom Style feature on Chris-
topher Colemans hue-happy new design boutique in Hudson.
The core of this issue covers the spectrum, from Roy to Biv. There are
the right-on-point tones and pattern language that Elias Asso-
ciates infuses into a classic apartment in The Apthorp. Our
Color Sense pages show off the family aspect of colorthat
its emotional and full of personality, that there are comple-
mentary hues and contrasting ones, too. Take a glance, and
then another. And enjoy!

SHOW STOPPERS For some, May Day means
strawberries and champagne. For others, its got
labor connotations. For haute design fans, May 1
has come to signify the opening of the annual,
month-long Kips Bay Decorator Show House.
Hosted by the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, New
Yorks most prominent youth organization, the
42nd annual mother-of-all-design tour de forces
this year moves into one of the surviving glories
of the Gilded Age: the Mansion on Madison.
Technically speaking, 22 of the nations leading
designers have dressed up the north wing of
the iconic courtyard structure originally known
as the Villard House, which McKim, Mead &
White designed and built in 1884. Dont miss it.
kipsbaydecoratorshowhouse.org
THE NEW LOOK Decorating has always had its coterie
of grand damestastemakers and resources, both.
Brunschwig & Fils has long been a queen bee among the
latter, with its D & D agship showroom the tastiest of
hives for designers of all stripes. Even good design needs
periodic refreshing, though. Hence the showrooms very
swell facelift by Brunschwigs own Stephen Elrod and
Doug Garfinkle, much-decorated interior designer Mi-
chael S. Smith, and Montreal-based design firm
Atelier de LOpera. With its combination of French airs
and American spirit, the updated space should
hold its attraction for years to come. brunschwig.com
COLOR ME BEAUTIFUL The William? Talk about
artful renovations. Where? The East 39th Street
brownstones that once housed the Williams Club.
A dream teamIn Situ Design, Lilian B. Interiors,
and artist William Engelorchestrated the transfor-
mation. The interiors take ight from Engels tonal
fantasiasthe blue, teal, pink, green, orange, or yellow
paintings that enliven the corridors of each oor. The
guest quarters mimic the hallway hues, with walls,
furniture, rugs, and bed linens in the same color

Institute, The Metropolitan Museum
of Art hosts Charles James: Beyond
Fashion. Up from May 8thAugust
10th, it charts the career of couturier
Charles James (19061978), whose

legendultra-glamorous, archi-
technically extraordinary garments.
Jamess process is covered in depth,
from his fascination with and use of
sculptural, scientic, and mathemati-
cal approaches to construct the revo-
lutionary ball gowns for which he is
so well remembered to innovative
tailoring that continues to inuence

CHRI STOPHER COLEMAN, THE BROOKLYN- BASED
interior designer celebrated for his exuberant color
sense, never intended to step up to the storefront
life. Ever. Yet this past December 15th, he leapt into
itfabulouslyin Hudson, New York. He calls his
Christopher Coleman Collection, an 1,800-square-
foot boutique on the main drag of Upstates hip-
happening design destination, a mid-life crisis. It
seems anything but.
Housed in a former liquor store that Coleman
has converted to a bright white gallery, the shop, a

precisely curated, seasonally themed mix. The for-
mula? The unique, the eye-catching, and the afford-
ablefurnishings, objects, and art, some new, some
vintage, and some repurposed.
Coleman has laser-like attention to detail, one
quality that successful designers and merchants
share. Not only does he put together an intriguing
array of wares, but he makes sure that each has a
carefully descriptive labelin the tradition of Moss
in beautifully designed, easy-to-read type.
Coleman has dened the shops sweet spot
as the weekend gift-giving set looking for anything
from a hostess thank you to a cool enticement for a
20 year old to a toy for a grandchild. Its so hard to
nd accessories that are interesting and affordable,
he says, not to mention art and furnishings.
This never-say-never designer plans to switch
out his tonally coordinated displays twice a sea-
son. He went red in February. For the garden-ready,
he shaded April green with woven baskets, boxes,
and large green planters. May promises an ever-
hotter palette, with aquas, oranges, and primaries.
And for the hipster urbanites ocking to the area in
ever-greater numbers, he makes sure theres always
plenty of black and white. SEE RESOURCES g

HI STORY HAS WI TNESSED HUNDREDS OF BEAUTI FUL,
architecturally signicant buildings fall victim to the
wrecking ball. The Apthorp, the c. 1908 Clinton & Rus-
sell-designed Italian Renaissance Revival building in the
heart of the Upper West Side, owes its existence in part to
this hindsight. The block-long structure, originally built
for William Waldorf Astor, received landmark status in
1968a mere three years after the creation of the Land-
marks Preservation Committee.
When longtime clients approached Edda Elias, of Elias
Associates, to do a stem-to-stern renovation of their newly
purchased, 3,700-square-foot hideaway at The Apthorp,
she turned out to be the perfect choice. The layout of the
three-bedroom residence was already ideal, with public
rooms up front and private rooms in the rear. Further, the
surviving interior craftsmanship, north- and south-facing
exposures, and 10.8-foot-high ceilings were hard to rival.
Given all that, Elias decided to retain the original oor
plan and surviving neoclassical backgrounds and inject a
more modern feel with carefully selected furnishings and
artwork. You dont gain appreciation by repeating your
period or playing it safe. The best jolt and impact comes
from creating a bit of chaosby mixing architectural ele-
ments and furnishings from different periods and styles,
says the designer.

52 N E W Y O R K S P A C E S MA G . C O M
The amazing plasterwork would be difcult to rework
today, Elias adds. So would the original mosaic ooring and
neoclassical moldings that distinguish the apartments ex-
pansive 29-foot-long entry gallery. She left those intact as
well, but formed a perfect foil with a mixture of contempo-
rary furniture and art, including a beautifully scaled, Bruno
Houssin KAO suspension lighting xture.
The living and dining rooms, which ank a central hallway,
exhibit the same multi-era design language. Bright accent
colors outline the prevalent gray-and-white color scheme
and inject a bit of liveliness. Comfortable yet striking designs
and hardwood oors stained a warm shade of espresso sing
against the backdrop of intricate plasterwork.
"Because the guest bedrooms were meant to be used
less, we went a bit off the design eld there," says Elias of the
more colorful, youthful palettes. The master bedroom, on the
other hand, exhibits a dreamlike luxury with neutral tones, a
deep plush carpet, and soft, tactile details galore.
Completely gutted and revamped, the kitchen keeps
to the flow with recycled glass mosaics in a custom gray
and white geometric pattern that complements the white
acrylic lacquer cabinets.
"Juxtaposing periods and styles creates a lot of thought
and interest and makes a space enjoyable for years to
come," says Elias. We just so happen to wholeheartedly
agree. SEE RESOURCES g
GRAY SCALE This page: After com-
pletely gutting the kitchen, Elias lined
the walls with white lacquer counters
and cabinets to create as much functional
space as possible. Glass mosaics in a
custom gray and white geometric pattern
on the walls and light charcoal porcelain
floors add layers of sophistication.

COZY Who ever perpetuated the idea
that a library should be buttoned-
up? In this semi-private room right
off the entry, Elias created a relaxed
ambience by pairing Room & Board's
high-backed Boden chair with a
lively zebra rug from ABC Carpet &
Home. Fornasetti pillow from Barneys.

CONTEMPORARY EDGE
This page, clockwise from left: In the
master bath, a counter of beautifully
striated Siberian marble provides a
focal point. In the guest bedrooms,
Elias opted for a more laidback feel
and bolder color schemes. Hermes, a
colorful linear painting, forms an
unexpected partnership with a sleek
white desk from Blu Dot and a con-
trasting rug from Madeline Weinrib.
Opposite page: In the master bed-
room, Elias compensated for a more
muted palette by creating interest
with textures and nishes. Between
the shimmering area rug, a faux fur
throw from Nobilis, and a headboard
upholstered in a cut-velvet abstract ani-
mal pattern, luxury abounds. A unique,
bone-like chandelier from Arteriors
Home adds the finishing touch.

do that because those tonalities read totally
differently from room to room depending on
the particular shade or on the light.

of Greenwich, had spearheaded a major
interior-exterior renovation in 2007. He re-
turned, collaborating with Wolf on the new
glass-walled annex. Wolf then set about de-
signing comfortably contemporary spaces
throughout that were gathering friendly.
(The family loves to entertain.)
Wolfs rst step? Minimizing formal
architectural details simply by not playing
them up. Using a fundamentally gray pal-
ette also redirected the focus from these in-
terior ourishes toward a sense of continu-
ous space unbroken by ornamentation. And
by varying gray shades room to room, Wolf
delineated each, yet also achieved a sense of
movement from one to the next. They are
all tonestheres not a true brown or true
gray. Its a very mercurial palette, bluer in
some places, taupier in others.
The large scale of public rooms ran the
risk of reading as cavernous. Wolf divided
the living room into two more intimate areas
and varied forms in each. Bertoia Diamond
chairs appear in both, but in one theyre
upholstered in a KnollTextiles wool and
set against a low-backed sofa swathed in
Cowtan & Tout velvet, while at

62 N E W Y O R K S P A C E S MA G . C O M
the replace end theyre bare and face shel-
ter sofas in identical velvet.
In the dining room, Sixteen of the
same chairs would have been monotonous,
Wolf explains. Instead, open forms of Knoll
Brno chairs on one side of the table progress
to more solid upholstered pieces (custom
tub chairs, then double banquettes).
Of course, Wolfs signature global
touches appear throughout. However, They
refer to the past but read modern, he says,
either because of their clean forms (the liv-
ing rooms simple Chinese coffee table) or
materials (the masters Chinese country
chair reimagined in steel).
The gray palette even continues out-
side to seat cushions of Dedon-furnished
lounging and dining areas. It gives a
sense of serenity and continuity as well as
rhythm, says Wolf, and you believe him.

the spectrum and the color wheel. Yet each of us sees and responds to a given formulation in our own
way. The watery sea-glass tones that delight the eye of one may well bore another to distraction without
some acid-y contrast. The scarlets, fuschias and oranges that send one person into ecstasy may be the
visual equivalent of nails on blackboard for someone else. Blue and white are like the Fred and Ginger

I T S PROBABLY SAFE TO SAY THAT 41- YEAR- OLD
Corvin Matei is one of the few architects and
designers to present hand-drawn sketches to cli-
ents. As they say, the pencil is the extension of the
mind, says Matei.
In 2011, under Mateis guidance, a 70-some-
thing philanthropist from the Midwest bought a
three-bedroom apartment in a 1917 J. E. R. Carpen-
ter building on Park Avenue and 62nd Street. Giv-
en the time-saving qualities of hand drawings, we
came up with the plans very quickly, before my cli-
ent even closed on the property, says Matei, whose
Studio for Architecture and Design opened in 2000.
Hand drawings were also appropriate given
that the client has an enviable collection of photog-
raphy, sculpture, and paintings, most from mid-to-
late 20th century, and a profound appreciation of
architecture and art. Discussing the hand draw-
ings with my client was like talking art with her. It
was a conversation about pure unadulterated ideas
and less about the glossiness of the drawing.
The plan: unclutter the existing spaces and
update the 3,500-square-foot apartment to the
needs of todays living while being respectful of
the singular design and character of the building.
(They studied old Carpenter drawings in search
of the original details.) Step one: the architecture.
Matei eliminated the congested maid quarters,
recongured the kitchen into a large, open ex-
space, and created passageways in walls to bring
natural light deep into the apartments heart. In
all, we created more open spaces and

organized them around natural light and views to the
city, says Matei. The new layout is more lofty yet
works with the original spirit of the building."
Step two: the design. It was important that
there would be no distinction between the architec-
ture and interior design, and that the spaces read as
one coherent and seamless construct, says Matei.
What that did not mean was lling the apartment
with neoclassical elements. Rather, Matei and his cli-
ent carefully curated a montage of styles and periods
to suit each space. In the living room, for example,
a curved couch and glass coffee table by Vladimir
Kagan, two Finn Juhl 45 chairs, and a walnut bench by
George Nakashima complement contemporary art by
Beth Lipman, Joel Shapiro, and Ben Zadok.
The nished apartment is a testament to not
only the benet of hand sketches but also the time-
lessness of understated chic: elegantly designed piec-
es from every period harmonizeboth with each oth-
er and with the elegant architecture. As Matei puts it,
The place feels humble yet sophisticated at the same
time. SEE RESOURCES g

Rubin swathed the exte-

SOME STORI ES REALLY ARE ALL ABOUT COLOR, LOCAL AND OTHERWI SE. THI S ONE CERTAI NLY I S. AS JUDY RUBI N, A PRI NCI PAL OF THE
Oyster Bay design rm Langsam Rubin Interiors, tells it, her clients, a Millbrook-based family of ve, decided to build a vacation house a convenient
bit further out on Long Island: With three children all deeply involved in local activities, they wanted a place to escape from the hubbub. And they
love the ocean. Rubin entered the process early on, so in addition to creating interiors and the outdoor rooms, she consulted on, among
SAND CASTLE A oor in French Vanilla marble,
white leather sofa, and white leather dining
chairs, says Rubin, are very practical and easy
to wipe down. She designed the fireplace
on an angle, so anyone sitting on the sofa from
Studium would be able to see both the TV and
the ocean. Below: The steel and glass dining
table mimics the colors of the water beyond.
Lucite stools appear to disappear, which empha-
sizes the openness of the free-owing space.

GAME PLAN To create a bar, Rubin clad
an existing structural pier with steel tiles
and then duplicated it. The Missoni fabric
on the Ligne Roset sectional pops with the
wifes beloved purple, plus complementary
brights. Opposite: An Italian tile mosaic
from Sicis brings in the water shades and a
oral theme that Rubin uses throughout.
IN THE FAMILY ROOM,
RUBIN WENT FOR THE
COLORS THAT THE WIFE
FAVORS AT HEART

other aspects, the colors that wash the exterior of the ve-
bedroom house in a shade that resembles a soft summer fog.
Open and airy, the three-level structure houses a sweeping, cen-
tral circular stair. Pushed to the maximum footprint, it also makes
the most of the water views with great expanses of windows and
sliding glass doors that ease the family and their friends into exte-
rior spaces outtted for relaxing and entertainingand ultimately
to the pool or the beach.
Rubins clients are passionate about the open-plan contem-
porary design that is so much a part of the history of beachfront
architecture in the Hamptons. Why else the streamlined struc-
ture, Poggenpohl kitchen, and array of sleek furnishings from
Brueton, Dedon, Studium, Moura Starr and other redoubts of the
look? On the other hand, the story of the paletteor rather the
backstoryisnt quite so straightforward. She loves the color
purple, says Rubin of the clients whose primary residence she
swathed in those royal tones. The designer continues, her hus-
band asked that they not make this house in the same shades,
as he was more into water-color hues. Rubin complied with
his preferred palette in the bedrooms, baths, and public rooms,
where lots of whites accented by aquatic blues and grays mimic
the Atlantic just a catwalk away.

82 N E W Y O R K S P A C E S MA G . C O M
The family room below deck tells the story of another spectrum,
so to speak. Here Rubin went for the gusto that the wife favors at heart.
Her beloved bold brightsplus strong dashes of purplemake their
reappearance in the brilliantly patterned, assertively colored Missoni
fabric covering the Ligne Roset sectional made for sprawling, barstools
from Elite Modern, and game table chairs from Phillips Collection.
As design goes, Rubins passes with ying colors. SEE RESOURCES g
QUIET TIMES Clockwise, from top: The serene
master bedroom suite opens to a private terrace
just for two. In a childs bath, Rubin clad the walls
in glass tiles and the oor in stainless steel.
This childs bedroom can sleep four, with a double
bed on the lower level, a twin on top, and a trundle
that pulls out when the nightstand rolls away.

HUDSON
88 N E WY O R K S P A C E S MA G . C O M
ON T HE E AST BANK OF T HE HUDSON RI VE R AS I T
winds through Columbia County lies a gem of a city that
dates to pre-Revolutionary War days. Just a few decades
back, Hudson, NY, was home to neglected storefronts in
various stages of disrepair, sketchy alleyways, and a few
brave antiques shops. In recent years, though, a burgeon-
ing group of artists, designers, and design enthusiasts
have picked up and moved to the waterside city to open up
home design stores, antiques shops, galleries, and restau-
rantsturning it into the hip getaway it is now.
Despite a somewhat sleepy-town-feel mid-week, Hud-
son comes alive each weekend with excur-
sionists intent on antiquing and design
hunting amid the beauty of the Hudson
River Valley. Culinary bon vivants in search
of the best farm-to-table restaurants, such
as Swoon Kitchenbar and relative new-
comer Fish & Game, are also aplenty. The
fortuitous migration of design-savvy urban
dwellers to this rural haven has also yielded
a huge upsidethe restoration of many his-
toric buildings and houses to their former
(and various) architectural glories. GETTING
THERE: A variety of trains provide service
to Hudson including Amtrak, Adirondack,
Empire Service and Ethan Allen Express. An

ROOMS OF HER OWN Ex-pat Andrea
Brooke, who recently opened Grace &
Favor, a chic, unique, Britain-meets-
Brooklyn design emporium, knows
the joy that comes from having your
own place. After all, the Cotswold
native has gestated the idea for 20
years. In that time, shes gathered a
wealth of experience in design and
decoration, all of which she brings to
bear in her charming, UK-centric shop
in Williamsburg. Like British design
itself, Brookes retail home base is an
idiosyncratic mishmasheverything
from the Andrew Martin Collection to
vintage commemorative plates to
Zoffany and William Morris wallpapers
to a line of candles called True Grace,
with the scents of homewood
paneling, parlor leather, and manor
place res. Why? I love the idea that
people can discover anything here
from an important chair, a fun gift, to
a great chandelier. SEE RESOURCES
