If you follow my blog, you know that I adore the work of interior designer Jeffrey Bilhuber.  Add architect Peter Pennoyer to the picture, and you have a powerful team!

The Italianate brownstone was built in 1874 and had been turned into a four unit dwelling after World War II.  Pennoyer was asked to attempt a restoration on the five story home, but found that the townhouse had deteriorated and could not be restored to its original state.

The couple, parents of two children, wanted the home to have the appearance of the old home.  The family art and furniture collection was extensive, and Bilhuber was asked to design the home around the pieces.
Mission accomplished!  ENJOY!

To read more about this beautiful brownstone pick up your copy of the April issue of Architectural Digest.

See you soon,

What a great combination of talent! I love Jeffrey Bilhuber's use of color and unusual mixes of style. He's such an original and so unafraid!
