Eclectic Space: West 75th Street Apartment by Eve Robinson Associates

Certainly it’s modern. Certainly it’s contemporary. But this clever interior in a New York apartment by Eve Robinson Associates is also not easily put into the “modern box” and dismissed. See the careful thinking being done at a long desk, big enough for two, that faces large windows flooding the room with natural light: it’s an efficient space, down to the easily repositioned white lamps and rolling chairs. But stop further down the hallway and you will see a plump chair and a curved-leg table. The first clue this isn’t just ordinary casual contemporary? Look at the geometric pillow print and see if you don’t smile at the “target” resemblance. An eat-in kitchen has square designs on the wall with colors straight out of the 70s: avocado, harvest gold, and a coppery brown — next to a sleek center island in cherry finish.

You’ll see “kid” stuff here, too: a tiny blue table and chairs, a red-and-white cubby cabinet, a bin of toys in the corner, a candy-striped couch. The wall may be a sand tone and the ceiling may be white…but it’s also full of childish artwork in its “gallery.” A master bedroom is in pure white — with geometric-print pillow shams in olive green and pale blue. Move to the dining room and you might be in your grandma’s house — a round mahogany pedestal table and polished wood chairs with a dignified stripe on the cushions — if it weren’t for that little abstract art on the wall, and those ceiling tiles! Yes, a living room side table is undeniably modern…with a sense of humor. And that’s the spirit of this entire space: no sterile laboratory or “model home” looks here. This is eclectic, and it’s pure fun.
