There are a few interior designers I make a point of following religiously, either because I love their style or because I find their work process inspiring. One such designer is Jamie Herzlinger of Jamie Herzlinger Interiors. With offices in New York City and Scottsdale, Arizona, Jamie truly has a knack for creating beautiful spaces no matter the client or particular style. However, her work always has a healthy dose of glamour and luxury, which I appreciate. Jamie recently designed a Fifth Avenue duplex for a couple who appreciated tailored minimalism, and the results are stunning.
This Carlo de Carli 1963 lacquered dining table gives stability and weight to the room white the klismos-style lucite chairs seem to float around it. I also love the Italian black lacquer side chairs that flank the window- they remind me of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's designs. In the living room, Jamie took a note from Dorthy Draper and placed an electric red reverse-painted coffee table between two sofas to act as a conversation piece. Draper used to place one controversial item in each room she designed because she said it "makes people talk."
The apartment overlooks the Beaux Arts mansion of Henry Clay Frick, originally designed in 1913 by Carerre and Hastings and later added on to by none other than John Russell Pope. It was serendipitous that Jamie was asked to design this apartment, because as a little girl she often dreamed of living in the Frick Mansion (or Bergdorfs, of course).
In the master bedroom, a luxe, monochromatic palette creates a calming vibe. The clients asked for a minimalist palette without a lot of adornment, except for great art, important sconces, and beautiful wall treatments.
The patio overlooks the Frick Mansion and the beautiful New York skyline. Talk about a dream home!
