Once a 19th century brownstone in the Rittenhouse district of Philadelphia, this residence maintains the historic façade on exterior but boasts a uniquely modern interior. Chocolate walls, honey toned cabinetry, exotic wood floors and sparkly accents collaborate to create a swanky home perfect for cocktail parties.
A Flos Mod chandelier floats above the dining table, small scale velvet sofas perfect for city living flank the mirrored entertainment credenza, faceted crystal lamps catch glittering light, and touches of white and spots of bright color draw the eye around the great room. In the master bedroom, a daring black chandelier adds flair and drama, while large scale graphic floral curtains dress the windows. A tangerine cashmere pillow and throw top the elegance of the room. The second bedroom, a home office, is fancifully feminine. The capiz shell chandelier, faux-bois mirror, white lacquered Parsons desk, and classic Eames office chair add to the glamour.
Chic patterns, classic and modern elements, playful colors, and crisp details assemble to create this fashionable urban walk-up that is always up for a soirée.
