Step Inside A 5,000-Square-Foot Apartment With Luxurious Design Details

When designer Lisa Tharp walked into this condo, housed in a historic building, she saw the potential right away. “What started as a simple decorating project turned into a rather extensive renovation,” she says. The homeowners moved from a traditional house in the suburbs to the city, wanting a fresh start and “a more refined, contemporary atmosphere,” adds Lisa. So, she knocked down the awkward columns and out-of-place Colonial-style fireplace, and created a sense of flow throughout the 5,000-square-foot residence. Lisa layered in artwork, custom furniture and luxurious finishes (think: silk wallpaper and velvet upholstery) to really tell a story between rooms. The final result is a memorable home that mixes classic and contemporary details and speaks to the homeowner’s new phase of life. “When you can make a big transition comfortable, you’ve really done the job,” she says.
