Balcony of a New York City apartment with a spectacular view overlooking Central Park. (above)
Architectural arches and curves are the order of the day in this NYC two story apartment. From arched doorways, to barrel vaulted ceilings, to arched French doors and windows, this city abode is filled with curves and soft lines that make a stunning statement.
Then comes the decor, courtesy of Los Angeles based interior design maven Katie Leede of her eponymous Digs by Katie. When it came to decorating, it seems that Katie chose to mirror the subtle soft lines of the architecture by using soft colors, soft fabrics, and furniture with curves and round edges. Beautifully done.
I would happily live in this apartment...
An arched doorway leads into the apartment's living room. A traditional living space decorated with light teal tufted velvet upholstered armchairs, off white and blue floral seating, striped drapes and a city view outside the corner windows. (above)
A succession of arches flows from the living room through a sitting area, to the entry way and then sinto the dining room. Arches are embellished with bright white painted molding and paneling which make them stand out even more against the subtle pale wall colors.(above)
Dentil crown moulding and a bold arch form a frame of the picture perfect sitting area with striped upholstered classic armchairs and a blue velvet sofa. (above)
Framed by yet another archway, pale green walls, a white console table with curved legs, an ornate gold mirror and stone tile floors create a stylish scene right outside of the home's dining room. (above)
Arches are subtly incorporated into the walls of a wood paneled traditional dining room. A crystal ship chandelier floats above a classic oval dining table with rust colored velvet chairs. (above)
Another archway leads to a curved staircase. (above)
A barrel vaulted ceiling in a bathroom makes a striking statement and creates a nook or niche for the stand alone tub. Marble floor tiles in a herringbone pattern and a curved Moroccan style fireplace mantel also add to the well designed architecture in this bath.(above)
Arched windows brighten up the second floor master bedroom. (above)
Leather paneled padded walls with nailhead trim detail add pattern and texture to the second floor landing. (above)
