If you grew up south of the Mason-Dixon line (where gracious hospitality is a hallmark) and find yourself transplanted to the one of the busiest cities in the world, how do you adjust? For this young family with three children, part of the answer is to ensure that your home represents your charming roots.

Designer Liliane Hart of Liliane Hart Interiors was the perfect partner to help these clients  fuse classic southern and contemporary New York aesthetics.

“The wife is originally from the South, works in fashion, and loves to entertain”, says Liliane.

“She asked that we incorporate some of her most favorite, sentimental pieces from her family into the design of her apartment. She loves antiques, bright colors and requested several seating areas for entertaining.

“We used clear jewel-toned colors throughout the apartment juxtaposed with neutral yet textural fabrics as their backdrop, and soft-colored sheers. We also mixed her antiques with contemporary art and jute rugs to keep the apartment looking fresh and youthful.”

Multiple seating areas with soft, deep-cushioned furniture invite guests to sink in, relax and enjoy each other.

A round dining table is the perfect choice to encourage free-flowing conversation and lingering over a great meal.
