From Contemporary To Gothic In a NY Mansion
Today’s home comes alive – from contemporary interiors to gothic inspiration, all contained within a bold New York mansion.
It’s no wonder that this edgy interior was put together by Ghislaine Viñas, a radical visionary whose renown stems from her studio’s award-winning, international interior design, product design and creative direction.
Originally from the Netherlands and raised in South Africa, Ghislaine launched her design studio in 1999 in New York City, which still functions as the nucleus for the Ghislaine Viñas brand, and a laboratory for all of her creative endeavors.
Located in between hills and dramatic trees on the bucolic city of Tivoli, near the Hudson River, in NY, the house was built in 1850 on 6.500 square feet, and recently massively renovated by Trimble Architecture, a Pamela Burton landscaper project. The house was meticulously renovated and the structure was in really good condition which allowed the team to only change what they felt the home truly needed.
In the end, Viñas and clients decided to take it slowly and be careful. At the beginning of the process, they were thinking about changing it all and covering the walls in a pastel colour palette. But this quickly changed. During the empiric experience on the field, they soon realized that white would be a better complement to the green majestic garden outside. As a result, they ended up painting the interior walls in white.
Viñas decided on subtle tones of colour, mainly green and light blue inspired by the landscape that surrounds the house. Besides that, the house is filled with bold and contemporary art pieces and modern furniture, creating a daring and attractive concept. For instance, the table imitating a pig fro, Moooi displayed in the lobby. This piece brings more ludic vibes to the environment making the people feel like this could be a place they would have fun in.
