This dining set sits just inside the front door. The ivory faux-leather chairs already belonged to Stewart, and Meyer paired them with a modern-industrial steel table for a refined contrast. (The paintings are by homeowner Stewart.)
Stewart found this scallop-trimmed white console table at a store on 14th Street, and Meyer paired it with one of Stewart’s softer, dreamier paintings. “I love the way it works with her artwork because you have some of that patterning and mimicking,” she says.
On left, extra dining chairs are positioned as seating in the living room. Right, Stewart's artwork is hung throughout the apartment.
A rustic, vintage chair (outfitted with a group of miniatures) creates a whimsical vignette on the living-room wall.
“This fixture was a bear to get in and installed, but hands down, it makes the space,” says Meyer. “It brings your eye down. Before, the ceiling felt limitless—but now, all of a sudden, your eye has a place to rest.”
Stewart's second-floor bedroom.
The wooden nightstand is vintage from Miss Pixie’s.
This Lucite console table echoes a similar coffee table on the first floor, and a duo of turquoise gargoyles add a playful splash of color.
Stewart’s nailhead linen bed from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams had to be lifted into the place through a roof-level window. Meyer used the persimmon printed shams to connect with the red-framed windows that run along the far wall.
Above the mirrored dresser hangs a Christian Lacroix silk scarf framed in gold.
