House Tour: Eclecticism + Style in NYC

I was so excited to spot this vibrant townhouse in Architectural Digest this month! It was designed by Bilhuber & Associates, and I worked quite in depth on this project while I was a designer at the firm a few years ago. I unfortunately was not able to see the finished home until now, and it is inspiring to see it completed! Jeffery Bilhuber was incredible in his strength of vision for the designs and the client was extremely creative and very involved - all in all, a fantastic project to be a part of. It is certainly not for the faint of heart but I love the eclectic and bold interiors contrasted with the traditional townhouse! 

I love the shot of turquoise on the chairs and the ceramic lamp and the oversized grid of hand drawings.


Tons of antique fabrics were used throughout the home - silk ikats,  suzanis, and vintage remnants. In order to use them to their best more advantage, many upholstery pieces had multiple fabrics on each. 






Rich gloss walls, plush chocolate velvet - a warm and enveloping library.










I love the serenity of the Master Bedroom and the etherial white Indian cotton sheers used for the bed hangings - so dreamy and peaceful!

The pale green leather table top, studded with upholstery tacks in a decorative design, is my favorite touch in this lovely dressing room.






I adore the way the room for the clients teenaged son turned out! Ticking stripe fabric on the walls, vintage but playful art and patches of antique textiles give the space so much personality. Very chic but yet still cool and young!




While I love working on my own now, I do sometimes miss the energy and extravagant scale of big design firm work! 

What are your thoughts? Do you like these interiors or think they are over the top?

I love those bright blue chairs! While I appreciate these interiors, I don't think I would ever want my space to look like that; it would just seem silly in an apt.

Good, good work here. I am super impressed and it must have been very gratifying to see the work in AD!!
I love the son's bedroom and had to pin those, but I'm going back for a second look because there is so much to study here!

One more thing: Love the continuity oof cranberry throughout much of the house -- and it looks like the same sconces were used throughout too -- just with different shades.
So cool.
