McGrath II's Latest Design Project in Tribeca

One of my favorite design firms to watch is the mother-daughter duo of McGrath II.  I've always been drawn to their highly edited spaces that feel both livable and luxurious.  I feel that they balance incorporating splashes of trendy elements, like the Hinson "splatter" wallpaper in the powder bath below, with timeless pieces that will translate well over the years-   and their recent Tribeca project is no exception:

The apartment featured one long living room space, and the girls felt it was best to break it up in to two separate living spaces- a more casual living room (as shown above) and a formal living room, with lots of seating options:

The custom rug, fabricated by Holland & Sherry, features horizontal stripes that give the illusion that the space is wider than it really is.   The silk wallpaper featured on the back wall by the kitchen is Teal Equinox by Phillip Jeffries.  Slipper chairs are a great seating option for tight spaces because the seat width is small while still remaining comfortable, and there are no arms to take up additional space.  

Connected to the long living room is the open kitchen.  McGrath picked Benjamin Moore's Cliffside Gray as the cabinetry paint color, and the hardware is from Colonial Bronze.  I love that McGrath chose glass fronts for a few of the upper cabinets, so that pretty dish ware could be displayed:

The master bedroom has a soft sage green throughout the space that creates a soothing effect.  The wallpaper was created in a custom shade from Farrow & Ball, and the club chairs were done in a custom Quadrille toile pattern.  I love the Swedish dresser most, though:

Bed linens are by Matouk:

The calming tones continue in to the master bathroom, which feature fittings and a custom mosaic floor by Waterworks.  The stool is from Ballard Designs (my fave)!

No boring, forgotten guest rooms in this house!  The guest bedroom is jazzed up with Quadrille's Abre de Matisse wallpaper and a punchy orange headboard.  The side table is by Chelsea Editions:  

The kid's room includes pretty pink touches, like the leading edge trim on the draperies, the bedside table lamp, and the Serena & Lily Gobi sheets.  The framed watercolor is by Kim McCarty:

Happy (early) Valentine's Day to all my loves.
