Interior designer, Tina Ramchandani owns a full-service design firm creating modern, sophisticated and relaxed interiors. One of her latest projects in Greenwich Village happens to be the personal home of the creative designer.
“I wanted to create a bright and airy space that I felt excited to come home to and since the apartment faces west, I knew it was important to maximize the light,” Ramchandani said.
Using Benjamin Moore’s Super White paint allowed the furniture and art to stand out against the neutral undertone. Complementing the selected paint color with grey flooring was also an effect way to maintain the minimal yet modern aesthetic.
“The color scheme is neutral, with layers of greys and black and hints of varying wood tones to add warmth. I designed the bedroom to be optimal for sleeping with shades of a blue-grey, emphasizing cohesion and serenity,” Ramchandani said.
However, while designing the space took endless creativity and innovated vision, there were a few challenging areas which Ramchandani faced while decorating her dream home.
“Finding the perfect place to put the TV was by far my biggest challenge. I wanted an open floor plan which can be tricky in a small space, so I got creative and found an unobtrusive area inside a corner wall. I integrated a hidden compartment for equipment and found the perfect articulating wall mount so it can be angled to work well for both the living and dining areas yet doesn’t take up much wall space with is extremely valuable in Manhattan,” Ramchandani said.
Luxury brand Pogenpohl, along with several other top-tier appliances were used in the kitchen, which Ramchandani exclaims is her favorite area in the apartment. The minimalist designs were extremely important for Ramchandani to incorporate, given she was inspired by a clean and simple design.
“I am a minimalist at my core, so I’m attracted to clutter free spaces, and although I want things to be clean and simple, I also want them to feel easy to live in and have character,” Ramchandani said.
From start to finish, Ramchandani executed her minimalistic vision through neutral tones, natural light and an open space ideal for any artisan truly transforming this diamond in the rough space into her luxurious dream home.
