I recently discovered New York City-based architecture and interior design firm Ashe + Leandro and spent a good half hour clicking through all of their inspiring design projects. The one thing that always draws me to an interior space is a feeling of crispness — clean lines, uncluttered accessorizing, polish, elements of white — and Ashe + Leandro has that down to a T. But their interiors aren't too minimal, sterile, or modern. Each room seems to blend beautiful contemporary furniture with warm, worn, antiques or traditional pieces like Persian rugs, burlap throw pillows, or French arm chairs.
I absolutely covet one particular project, a three-bedroom apartment on the west side of Manhattan, so I had to share. From the living room built-ins filled with yellow book spines to the oversize pendant shade above the dining table, there's a surprising, eye-catching element in each space. While the common spaces are painted white, two of the bedrooms are personalized with color: one features three of the most perfect shades of turquoise and looks like a breath of fresh air, and another is layered with deep hues of dusty brown and hunter green to create a truly nocturnal space. Such a dream! Take the full tour, and you'll be thinking of hiring the team to redesign your own home!
