THIS SHOWSTOPPING NEW YORK FAMILY HOME IS DECEPTIVELY GLAM

gideon mendelson house tour

After a young family of five living in Greenwich Village

decided to move into a new apartment

that would keep them in the Manhattan neighborhood

but better fit their growing number,

they sought out interior designer Gideon Mendelson, who had designed their original home .

For this project, Mendelson used neutral tones

in the common areas, like the living room and the kitchen. In smaller spaces, he took risks with pattern—

witness a faux marble–painted floor and a wallpapered ceiling in the foyer.

The black dining room pops with a gold ceiling, a dramatic effect that contrasts with the adjacent ivory living room.

Mendelson studied architecture,

and that training influences his design approach.

He creates rooms where form comes first and contrasting

textures give spaces their shape. Usually, he says, it takes some time living within a space for clients

to understand the full impact of the design.

“When we’re done with a project, the client is of course happy with how it looks, but that’s just the initial reaction,”

says Mendelson, who waits to hear their reaction several months later. “They might call to

say that they just had a cocktail party in the house and the circulation worked beautifully and we were able to have a good time.

Or they’ll say, ‘My son is doing so well,

he’s flourishing in school, and it’s the way you designed his room.’

To me, that is so satisfying to hear.” สถาปนิก
