he dining room is simply furnished with a beehive pedestal table,
custom upholstered chairs and a 19th-century Tansu chest. The circular
Stilnovo chandelier is from Downtown. “It’s a room for everyday
dining,” says Shetter, “and we furnished it with eclectic pieces that
Mike could have acquired on his travels.” The traditional kitchen has a brick
boveda ceiling and opens onto a breakfast room fitted out with a rustic dining
table from Obsolete, vintage bentwood chairs from Nickey Kehoe and a 1930s
Venetian storage hutch from Novecento.
“Mike wanted the upstairs master bedroom to be cozy and contained,”
Shetter explains, “so we had the custom bed and television cabinet made
from oiled walnut that complements the wood floors and vaulted ceiling.”
To lighten the room, a faceted gold-mica pendant from Lawson-Fenning is
suspended beneath the roof lantern.
For the expansive outdoor living area, the designers selected an iron
chandelier, wood-and-iron coffee table and woven side chairs from Cisco
Home. Kilim-covered ottomans from Rummage and a teak daybed from
Mix Furniture provide ample seating options. “Modern and rustic, with a
hippie vibe,” is Palevsky’s description of the project’s overall aesthetic. “It’s a
reflection of Mike more than of us.” And while the principals of AP Design and
Sarah Shetter Design are moving forward with their individual firms, they are
sure to find more opportunities to work together.
