Sometimes the designer-client relationship goes beyond a single project and becomes a journey. The story begins with an art collector couple with three children, Kimille Taylor first designed a comfortably contemporary New York apartment and years later returned after clients bought a two-bedroom unit next door, to seamlessly tie the spaces together.

The now larger open living room consists of two spaces – each with a Taylor-designed circular “pop out” in the ceiling – joined by a freestanding sofa on two sides.

When they purchased the original apartment, the couple liked its size and the building’s modern glassenclosed architecture. However, they didn’t like the rooms, and Kimille Taylor created two bedrooms and a family area complete with a ping pong table for the kids.

The renovation of this apartment also involved moving the dining room to a newly opened area adjacent to the kitchen. Additionally, Taylor created a kitchenette at the entrance, with coral pink cabinets and large black-and-white finned doors.

I like a happy interior. The colors are layered and subtle—adding to the joy of this place.”

The dining room is filled with abstract art by other female talents, such as paintings by Carrie Moyer and Claire Falkenstein, while a fanciful ceiling light by Larose Guyon, which Taylor likens to a string of pearls, illuminates Harvey Probber’s table. In the open kitchen, there is a painting by Mel Bochner.

The office also features works by Anne Collier, Cindy Sherman, Marilyn Minter, Laurie Simmons, and Jack Pierson that make up a portfolio that was purchased from a non-profit organization that supports arts and creative programming for public schools.
