Above: Before and after Modsy designers worked their magic on the previous tenant’s bedroom to create the perfect room for me.

When I decided to move back to New York City and into a three bedroom apartment with two roommates, I knew my new tiny room on the Upper East Side would take some getting used to, but I signed the lease faster than I could say “I love NY,” anyway (I mean…there was a dishwasher).

Spunky, sassy and sexy: Those are just a few of the design directives Washington, D.C.-based designer Zoe Feldman followed to transform a 1913 rowhouse for a well-traveled, thirty-something client. Now filled with Mid-Century pieces, an extensive art collection, and wallpaper patterns galore, the home wasn’t quite in tip-top shape when Feldman signed on—especially when it came to the master bedroom.

While it had plenty of potential, there were a “few awkward moments, like multiple closet doors and a funky tray ceiling,” recalls Feldman. She began by simplifying the space, replacing the three doors with two, then sourced pieces that fit easily into the quirky layout.

Many of the concepts are consistent with a cutting-edge design theory, which supports minimalism to promote focus, improve memory, and reduce anxiety in children. 

In the March issue of Architectural Digest, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West offer an intimate tour of their capacious 15,000-square-foot mansion, which they describe as having an aesthetic of a “futuristic Belgian monastery.”
