Today we return to the work of Frances Herrera, the inimitable New York interior designer behind Interiors by Francesca, LLC. Working with a young, sophisticated family in the Upper West Side, Herrera transformed a blank slate into a comfortable, kid-friendly home that exudes an unquestionably chic, cozy and polished sense of style.
The minimal, contemporary dining room allows the impressive Manhattan skyline to take center stage.
The large, unobtrusive glass table and dining chairs that are upholstered in a practical, yet chic faux ostrich vinyl are perfect for everyday use and for young children.
Abundant neutral and warm shades enhance the coziness of the living room.
The living room design is focused on comfort, luxury and multi-functionality. The large sectional sofa is perfect for family movie nights and for entertaining larger groups of family and friends. Just behind the sofa, in front of an expansive window, a desk and file cabinet make for a perfect place to get work done or simply relax and read.
A chic wingback chair placed in the corner with a bookshelf becomes an intimate reading area in the living room.
In the six-year-old boy’s room, a custom window seat with drawer provides even more storage for toys.
The children’s rooms are designed to provide plenty of comfort and storage space with a playful color palate based on each child’s color requests. Loft beds help maximize the space and creates zones for different activities. The floor rugs in each room are Flor carpet tiles that can easily be replaced if stained or too worn over time.
In the eight-year-old girl’s room, cheerful colors and floor-to-ceiling drapery keeps the space feeling bright and sophisticated.
A swivel Swan lounge chair in the girl’s room allows for panoramic river views, a view that ties in with the bedroom’s watery blue theme.
A neutral palette and modern, minimal furniture gives the master bedroom an understated elegance.
The master bedroom design is a luxurious getaway with rich fabrics and an eclectic hanging light fixture that is both practical and sophisticated.
Soft neutral shades and crisp white ensures the master bedroom is a chic, relaxing escape from the busy city.
This modern, contemporary apartment in the city is truly “sanctuary-like” thanks to Herrera’s expert tastes. The New York skyline, warm colors and rich fabrics must be a dream to come home to!
