LOFT DESIGN IN TRIBECA

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!

LINDSAY REID ~ DESIGN IN CALIFORNIA


Interior designer Lindsay Reid designed her California cottage with a Mediterranean style that flaunts romance with relaxed elegance. Reid learned a lot about beautiful design from  mentor Suzanne Rheinstein. We can see Rheinstein's influence intertwined with that of Reid throughout.

The living room has a serene and comfortable atmosphere with laid back furnishings and color.  The kitchen and dining room are sophisticated yet charming, and the family room is warm and colorful.  The outdoor dining area is perfect for entertaining.  ENJOY!
