A Fifth Avenue Renovation by Gil Schafer

If you are a designer you are fortunate when you have a relationship with repeat clients that blossoms into a wonderful friendship. In the case of Gil Schafer, one such couple called upon him to renovate a farmhouse over 20 years ago which marked the beginning of many projects together (over 15 in all!). In their latest project, featured in Galerie Magazine, the couple called upon Schafer to renovate a 4,000 square foot Fifth Avenue apartment in New York. The couple wanted a design that would incorporate their contemporary art pieces, infuse a little bit of classic design, and create a home comfortable enough for the couple and their three children. I think the final design checks all those boxes.

    Got to say, the colour of the salon is our least favorite, but the rest of the coop is spot on. We especially like when a white shade reflects the green in fig trees back. The library’s limed paneling solved a transition problem from a white paneled room to the study in our design.
