The vision for this project was to create a residential environment to rival the best fashion houses of Europe. This addition would blend seamlessly with the existing home and befit an influential member of the fashion community. It would be the backdrop for countless videos, seen daily by more than half a million followers on multiple social media platforms. The requirements included creating a jaw-dropping display for the client’s luxury shoe collection, display space for designer purses, and extensive storage for clothing and accessories. The design team aimed to incorporate luxury finishes with elegant, timeless elements.

The most pressing challenge was lighting. With the client’s high visibility on online platforms, taking videos and images easily in the space was crucial. Stylistically, the design team followed the elegant presence established by her fashion empire. The space is an extension of the client’s brand and must illuminate and elevate her designs.

The team created an architecturally stunning ceiling that soars and an immense amount of shelving solutions. Built-in lighting illuminates every shelf, cubby and enclosure. They also managed the way natural light interacts with space to accommodate photography throughout the day, and used a subdued color palette to create a neutral backdrop. The design features two Calacatta Valentin quartz-topped islands, filled with uniquely designed storage complete with a telescoping mirror that appears to levitate out of the island with the push of a button.
