When one thinks of a sprawling Park Avenue apartment, what comes to mind is typically muted colors, clean lines, and classic decor, but for this Upper East Side duplex, the Steven Gambrel and the designers at his firm S.R. Gambrel created a home that retains this sophistication while displaying a bevy of cheery pastel hues, geometric patterns, and unexpected accessories.
In the living room, gum ball pink plays with turquoise among carefully curated details like blonde wood built-in shelving and window seats, as well as statement pieces like the furry ottoman and colorful rug.
The low, square-shaped furniture in both sitting rooms adds a modern flare to the eclectic design. The room pictured above is more muted on the walls and floors, letting the zig-zag couch take center stage.
Adjacent to the second sitting room is the stairwell, yet another display of interesting shapes and tonality. The blue from the living room is carried over into this light-bathed opening, but in a more muted and gentle shade.
There is no respite from pattern in the dining room; from the carpet to the walls, the room is adorned with energetic visuals that delight the eye.
The same color combination can be found in the kitchen, with blue colored subway tiles framing the natural wood grain cabinetry.
This funky bedroom gives new meaning to the concept of built-ins, creating the perfect sleeping nook. And when you’re done resting, the wet bar and counter make the transition to entertaining a breeze.
