It’s a thoroughly modern, contemporary interior that we see in this Park Avenue apartment as realized by Eve Robinson Associates — but with a colorful twist: the hues of flowers and greenery are accents here, in delightful counterpoint to the abundance of white and gray that is so prevalent in contemporary design. One of the client’s favorite hues appears to be poppy-red: you see it on abstract art in the living room (paired with the palest of periwinkle blue and pearl pink) — but also in flowers on a table, and in a more muted form on bedspreads in a pink-and-purple bedroom. See it on the window shade as well? That cheery red is only one “flower” color that brightens what might otherwise be a stark environment of unrelieved winter white.

Other hues that bring levity to the mix: the aforementioned pale blue, a color reminiscent of hydrangeas at twilight (or daybreak)…delicate petal-pink, as seen in an upholstered loveseat…a spot of olive green on a striped pillow and a bedspread. Notice the rugs: all of them “look” neutral at first — until you realize that against one’s cream background there is a gentle pink floral print, and in another’s, blue stylized petals hold forth. See the fabulous red knobs on the stainless-steel stove, the bouquet in the center of a white kitchen table, and the backlit “screen” effect of the pale orange fabric accent on storage shelves? If it makes you smile, the color has done its job — “mission accomplished” in this clever design from Eve Robinson.
