When Lee Mindel was asked by Winsome Brown and Claude Arpels to design their Tribect loft in downtown Manhattan, they gave instructions for a child friendly home that was indestructible. Brown, an actress and writer, and Arpels, son of the famous French jeweler Claude Arpels of Van Cleef & Arpels, not only wanted a home that would be perfect for children but a place for entertaining.

The room is filled with furnishing in primary colors and space for the children to play and be expressive. The open floor plan and light filled rooms are the perfect backdrop for the collection of artwork. An industrial kitchen is off of the dining room.  ENJOY!

Love the pops of color.....kind of unexpected but fun. Its sophisticated, a little stark for my personal taste but well done.

Teresa, Having a kid friendly space is so important to parents. Looks like they achieved their goal. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Love the colors and use of space -- definitely great for children and chic at the very same time... most difficult to do, but they have certainly pulled the look off and well. Quality over quantity and winning style!
