Bringing together western and eastern themes tied together with a love of safari animals and artistic animal themed embellishments, this apartment at once feels warm, inviting, yet formal and classical. An undulating wooden beam ceiling brings in touches of nature and waves, while bold furnishings reflect the owner’s personalities and memorable pieces collected during their travels together.

The space was designed around three themes, gold touches for grandeur and stateliness, a safari and zoo animals with lion and giraffe favorites in particular, and the extension of the undulating distant mountains in the design of the ceiling. Traditional Chinese touches with Buddha statuettes and a section of the space enclosed within red lacquer walls with black lacquer sliding doors: modern meets traditional Japanese.

Upon entering this residence, one is greeted with the undulating ceiling echoed in the wavy gray and black carpet like drifting clouds and expansive city and distant mountain views through the large picture frame window. As you enter the living room, a supple leather sectional sofa beckons you. The measured tick tock of the grandfather clock reminds you of the fleeting time. An elegant red and black lacquer enclosed changing room hints of a delicious Japanese bento box.

The designer was faced with creating multiple themes throughout the apartment to highlight the different collectible objects. In the case of the cherub-topped highly ornate guilt Belgian grandfather clock, the surrounding space incorporated light-grained wood cabinetry and a white marble cherub statuette. On the other hand, opposite the clock a Buddha sits in an alcove flanked by two floor-to-ceiling cabinets with ornate brass door pulls echoing Asian influence.

This apartment highlights the bounties of client’s world travels creating a welcoming space highlighting special memories of the clients through designs incorporating their favorite safari motifs of the lion and the giraffe. Blending the bold aesthetics, the space welcomes guests with comfortable, warm tones, while presenting the dignified.
