A few weeks ago I went to check out the Domino Shophouse located at 15 William Street in the Financial District. For the shophouse, Domino magazine invited four different interior designers to decorate an apartment in a fancy new downtown condo building. Most of the items featured in the apartments are available for purchase online, hence the name "shophouse" or shoppable showhouse. Each of the designers had a unique perspective, and it was fun to see how they tackled the challenge differently. Keep reading for the full scoop, and more pictures of these glamorous and inspiring spaces created by Jenny J Norris, J+G Design, Antonino Buzzetta, and Dekar Design:
My favorite of the four apartments was designed by Jenny J Norris using Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams furnishings. The space had a sleek, mid-century modern vibe, and the living room felt airy, bright and chic. In the contrast, the master bedroom and den were dark, sophisticated, and moody in a sexy Mad Men sort of way.
The neutral color palette features warm grey, rich dark wood, brass accents, and a touch of black. The one wall kitchen is sleek, and practically disappears into the wall.
Deep grey, a bold choice for the bedroom, works well with the inviting velvet headboard and crisp white bedding.
I love the light fixture and the sleek and seamless dresser. The paint color is Benjamin Moore French Beret.
The den has an intriguing and worldly vibe. The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore Westcott Navy.
Next up is the cheerful and colorful space designed by J+G Design with a mix of Thomasville and other furnishings. The entry, in Benjamin Moore Cool Mint, feels like stepping into the Wizard of Oz and features a sparkly, jewel-like mirror.
The living room has more of a traditional air with crisp white, bright blue, navy, and a mix of classic pattern and texture.
I love this art moment in the hallway.
The painted screens by the bed are so pretty.
This next apartment was designed by Antonino Buzzetta using a mix of Homeware and other furnishings. Antonino's style is bold and elegant with unique artwork. A pop of blue brings some color into this layered, neutral living room.
The headboard wall is painted Benjamin Moore Slate Teal. I love the cozy-looking wing chair.
How cool is this bathtub? The wall to the bedroom opens and closes to give you the option of privacy or an open, airy bath.
Lastly, we have the quirky and cozy space designed by Dekar Design using a mix of Ballard Designs and other furnishings. The striped entryway is bold, dramatic and artistic.
I'm not too crazy about the tablecloth and stools, but the light fixture is cool.
The nursery is really cute with a hip edge. The daybed is the perfect place for a nap or bedtime story. The neon sign is by Tapp Franke.
I love the cute way they hung these drawings by Frances Tulk-Hart using strings of twine.
In the bedroom, the walls are painted in Benjamin Moore Ruby Dusk, and paired with neutral, natural colors for an earthy and inviting atmosphere.
