An American designer has transformed the last floors of an apartment building in Manhattan into a home full of color, shapes and patterns, a “miracle attic”. In a true chromatic sequence, the attic wears between its walls a real zest for life reflected and expressed by every square centimeter of its structure. The pictures below speak for themselves about the ‘miracle attic’ in New York.
From the entrance, three felt stools under a full of life picture presage the following experience. Access is immediately in the living room, where we see a true chromatic vortex, an avalanche of colors that stratify visually the room and break the dominance of grey in the floor and ceiling. Also the fireplace received a new look, like a mouth that opens to another world.
Here and there, a few plants give a vitality note to a classic decor, an extra splash of color, strategically located in the corners for a more percutant visual effect.
On the outer side, the walls dressed in original brick, bring a shadow of authenticity in a house radically transformed.
In the bathroom, one of the corners, where there is a dressing table, seems a Renaissance painting. The mirror reflecting rich and different colors is almost indistinguishable in the image.
Colors are present on every step, even in the kitchen, where a bar made of painted bamboo brings a strong accent. A mosaic of mirrors propagates the light in space and reflects an exciting game of forms.
The designer tells how the client demanded that one of the rooms takes the form of a tent, the living memory of a trip to Saharan Africa. Said and done, one of the rooms received strong oriental accents, a space dedicated to complete relaxation.
The bathroom is dressed in multicolored mosaic, the dominant color being blue. An insulated tub is the ultimate refuge at the end of a hectic day.
But nothing compares with the suspended staircase connecting the two floors of the penthouse. A combination of oak wood lacquered in bronze and mobile railings for a unique sensation.
