When you think “Bohemian” you often think of unconventional and creatively inspired – and that thought-process lends itself verbatim to what is the Bohemian Apartment by Incorporated NY.
This spacious 4700 sq. ft. 5-bedroom structure is an urban delight for the family of 7 who live here. Constructed for work, play and social gatherings, this unit is a combination of 2 apartments with a view of the Hudson River within close proximity to the father’s workplace on Wall Street.
Bringing the outdoors in to this city dwelling was important to the family, and equal importance was placed on creating unique settings for a large family comprised diverse tastes. Whether playing, climbing, reading, crafting, practicing piano, dancing, homework duty or settling down for a nights slumber, this home provides an environment for all such activities with an authentic flare for each.
Natural birch tree trunks were brought in for the dining room, mirrored by birch forest wallpaper. And this same “bringing-the-outdoors-in” theme was carried through into the craft room, which is lined with reclaimed barn wood, along with natural accents within the children’s rooms.
This home is a kaleidoscope of colour, from bright green sleeping lofts to azure blue back-splashes and bedroom colours, along with perfectly weathered surfaces, vintage wall coverings, a fruity-floral piece behind the kitchen stove, among many other artful details – giving this space a southern Californian feel reminiscent of home for the mother of the house. Beauty personified!
