Philip Mitchell’s Refined Condo

Top interior designer Philip Mitchell transformed a dated penthouse into a timeless, elegant home with high-end finishes and architectural details.

A faux fireplace wall flanked by built-in shelving creates a focal point in the living room. Philip added extensive panel mouldings, deep cornices and high baseboards throughout the space to create architectural interest. The parquet flooring was stained a dark walnut for a more sophisticated look. A mix of artwork styles and quirky treasures keeps the space from appearing too stuffy.
