The owners of this house were tired of the chaotic traffic they suffered every weekend as they went from New York to the Hamptons, so they decided to buy this traditional house in the quiet area of Hudson Valley surrounded by a natural and serene environment, with two heights and facade of wood and stone.
From the outside, there is no hint of what is hidden inside, commissioned by interior designer Sasha Baikoff. They met her through a decoration magazine and immediately were fascinated by her luxurious design.
There are many layers in the modern interior of this living room, with puffy chairs, rock-like black center tables and a beautiful white sofa with sleek Italian lines. The marble pattern on the rug looks absolutely stunning under the Sputnik-inspired chandelier and the only pop of brightness comes from the contemporary painting on the back wall.
“My challenge was to integrate references to nature through a design that reflected the owner’s preferences for metal elements, mirrored surfaces, leather and skin, ” says Sasha Bikoff .
Two sideboards in very distinct styles, one in the hallway on the other on a back wall, fill the modern interior with life. On the first, the mirror reflects the stairway with clever placement and maximizes the perceived space and the second is adorned with sublime golden fixtures with a kind of tribal theme.
The designer created a bold dining area with a marble table surrounded by vintage chairs reupholstered with Jean Paul Gaultier fabrics.
The look on the dining room is much more simple, with a subtle country feel to it. The white tones dominate this room and ample windows provide the necessary lighting to contrast with the brown tones.
For Sasha Bikoff, an interior space evokes a particular lifestyle and gives the inhabitants the opportunity to transform their house into their own creative and eclectic oasis. It is exactly what he achieved with this project.
The bedrooms are sleek, with neutral tones and furniture that comes in pairs. On the bottom one, poplar root nightstands, a couple of round mirrors and a pair of beautiful armchairs surround a magnificent three-level center table.
