Step Inside An Eclectic New York Townhouse by Danielle Colding
Located in New York, this bold Townhouse was designed by Danielle Colding with a stunning eclectic style. Let’s step inside and look at how this eclectic vision came to life…
Danielle Colding was challenged to be bolder than usual – drawing her out of her comfort zone to create a beautiful eclectic home. The brief for this five-story Townhouse? No white walls! This was a challenge but today the interior packs a punch with personality, colour and intricate details. The building was in good shape but needed renovations to give it a new lease on life.
Come on in…
Take a first at the interior and you’ll notice the bold entrance of this stunning house. The entrance features a graphic black-and-white tile on the floor, creating a vibrant tone that sets the scene right at the start of our tour. Continuing with the black-and-white colour scheme, the interior designer chose a graffiti print of Pierre Frey fabric for the Roman shade. Dark walls are enhanced by bright pops of colourful furnishings.
Funky wallpaper by Kelly Wearstler creates a hyper-layered pop-art entryway providing an inviting and fun ambience. The salon of the 1910 townhouse is stunning. Danielle Colding creates an eclectic style in this salon with a pair of Art Deco chairs and a curvaceous custom sofa in an electric blue. The artwork by Mirielle Jefferson breaks up the dark opacity of the walls. Furthermore, Colding chose a beautiful rug and a cocktail table by Tom Faulkner for this eclectic style home to complement the look.
A world of surprises
The interior is filled with hidden surprises. Ornate ceiling details hint at its past life with modern fixtures such as crystal chandeliers and abstract art that adorn the walls. There is a juxtaposition of old and new; modern and classic, creating a wonderfully interesting ambience in every room.
While the clients may have clamoured for more, Colding never let herself get carried away. “To me, this home is a lot, but it still feels tasteful,” she says. “It shouldn’t feel like a clown show. My goal was to make it funky and interesting—but also not look crazy.”
