This six-floor, five-bedroom Upper East Side townhouse, owned by by notable art collector and philanthropist Nancy McCormick, a longtime Lawrence client who’s an American Ballet Theatre trustee and founder of the children’s clothing line Florence Fancy, was just redesigned and renovated by Mexican architect Carlos Garciavelez and New York designer David Lawrence. The home is sophiticated and sumptuous.
We love how calming and graceful Venetian plaster walls and hand-embroidered, quilted-cashmere curtains provide a perfect neutral backdrop for patterned furniture and client’s museum-worthy art. The oriental antique area rug has a subtle sheen and patterns to add an extra layer of glam. A cream mid-century chair with the sleek tapered brass legs by the classical fireplace brings in a youthful energy.
We love this vignette of the curved dark-blue sofa with a gilded portrait at the corner of the living room. It is quite interesting and full of stories of with vintage pieces here.
Landing And Staircase
The color palette of pearl-white and glossy black lacquer in this stair lading area is fashion-forward and elegant, which channels Coco Chanel’s iconic rue Cambon shop in Paris. The mid-century modern furniture nicely contrasts with the doors and moldings.
This glam dining room is wrapped with shimmery hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper blossoms. The dark velvet banquet along the wall adds a sense of coziness and high style. The dining table is composed with two of classical writing tables with gold-leaf inserts paired with modern striped dining chairs. The area rug is mid-century and low-key.
The dark color palette of this reading room truly makes the room cocooning-like.
The drapes for the window wall and the canopy bed make this master bed feel intimate and peaceful.
The color palette of pink and grey in this kid’s bedroom gives it a more sophiticated and grow-up feel. The patterns on the bedding, area rug and chair are interesting and playful.
