Elegant Living Room in Restful Colors

An armchair from Hickory Chair swivels to face a television hidden behind a sliding panel in the built-in bookcase. A Patterson, Flynn & Martin rug grounds the room.

See details of the living room on the following slide.

Sophisticated Palette and Sumptuous Fabrics

Ivory-colored velvet from Hickory Chair covers the living room’s furniture. Nailhead trim adds clean-lined details, while the sofa pillows lend sophisticated color.

Rooftop Terrace Garden

Potted plants and topiaries give the rooftop terrace the feel of a lush garden high above the city.

See more of the terrace on the following slides.

Balcony Sitting Area with a View

Lacy outdoor furniture from Richard Schultz provides a place to perch and admire the Manhattan skyline.

Outdoor Living Room

Steps from the kitchen, a configuration of outdoor furniture and a fireplace sit underneath a shady pergola on the terrace.

Wood Paneled Entry Hall

Walls sheathed in waxed mahogany contrast with the matte texture of the limestone-and-marble floors.

Warm Upstairs Hallway

Curved shelves at the top of the stairs take the atmosphere of the upstairs library into the hallway.

Breakfast Room in Blue and White

The breakfast nook’s vintage Murano glass chandelier inspired the room’s blue-and-white palette. A custom curved bench covered in a Clarence House toile is Lynn’s favorite spot for morning tea.

Bright and Open Kitchen

Wagman reconfigured three small rooms to create the spacious kitchen. Steps lead to the terrace where the family enjoys alfresco meals along with views of the city.

Traditional Dining Room in Vibrant Turquoise

A Murano glass chandelier commissioned by Lynn in London lends the lacquered walls even more sparkle. Kemble tucked grass cloth between the ceiling coffers to bring the eye up and make the room feel taller.

Tabletop Details

Dainty details in the dining room, like lacey antique placemats and vintage Lucite napkin rings, give the room an air of classic British taste.

“We wanted to stay at the end of the day and have a cup of tea,” says designer Celerie Kemble.

Handsome Mahogany Library

A sleeper sofa from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams turns the wood-paneled library into a makeshift guest room when needed. The area rug from Merida lightens the space.

See more of the library on the following slide.

Library Desk Niche

Wagman designed a mahogany-enveloped niche overlooking Central Park as a built-in work area for Stephen. Kemble made it comfy with a wing chair from Hickory Chair.

Butter-Yellow Master Bedroom

An Art Deco-style archway references the building’s pre-war architecture and adds charm to the space. Draperies, headboard, and bed skirt are fashioned from a striped fabric from Pierre Frey.

Charming Master Bath

Mirrored cabinets from Robern stand out against walls covered in Farrow & Ball’s “Broad Stripe” wallpaper.

Pink-and-Green Girl’s Bedroom

Dressed in a lively Muriel Brandolini print, the headboard harmonizes with a raspberry bed skirt in a Cowtan & Tout linen.

See more of this bedroom on the following slide.

Green-Backed Bookshelves

Bookshelf interiors are painted green, a touch Kemble says brings order to the colorful chaos of books.

Lovely Lavender Guest Bedroom

A pair of gold swing-arm lamps from Ralph Lauren Home flank the guest bed, which is dressed in a lavender alpaca throw and graphic pillows designed by Kemble for Schumacher.
