A Converted Office Tower Becomes the Ultimate Family Home

design-solutions-EDC-12-13-08-xln In a show house like no other, this fall three celebrated interior designers -- Alessandra Branca, Jamie Drake, and Carlos Aparicio -- were invited by Hearsts's ELLE Decor, House Beautiful, and Veranda to design three separate apartments in New York's Walker Tower, an Art Deco gem recently converted into condos. Branca turned the former office tower on its head, transforming the interiors into the ultimate family home. Using real clients of hers as inspiration, she envisioned a new downtown chapter for a family of four, replete contemporary art, dark herringbone floors, ticking-stripe walls, bold uses of fuchsia, and stately tartan. design-solutions-EDC-12-13-06-xln Want to see more?
