Natasi Vail Design

Posted on Mon, 31 Mar 2014 by midcenturyjo

The soaring ceiling in this two bedroom duplex in a converted 19th century schoolhouse in Cobble Hill, New York lifts this otherwise small space to another level. Natasi Vail Design has exploited the height during their renovation of the space with clever built ins to maximise storage and provide architectural detail. Splashes of blue and pink play against white walls while a gallery hang of small art pieces accentuates the height. The original kitchen has a low ceiling height but by removing upper cabinets and replacing them with open shelves the space appears more open. An awkward apartment soars to new heights

The kitchen has a functional look to it — line-cookish. Which is not a negative, when you want to just throw yourself into meal prep! I know the first thing I'd need in there would be a good radio, though, to capitalize on the lighting. I think music might be key in living here.

O…M….Goodness! so much goodness here! Love the whole living area: poofs, pillows, BOOKCASE BUILT-INS, furniture, lighting, rug, library ladder, AND that sofa makes my heart pound. LOVE that there is a landing above – you could just reach over and grab a book off that tall shelf from there, LOL! this is a fantastic design…
OH! and navy cabinets + marble = delicious
