Downtown Cozy Modern

We are so thrilled to be wrapping up another client photo shoot!  I couldn't have pulled it off without the help Erin my talented design assistant and Lizzie who took these amazing photographs.

We took this condo down to the studs to create a open floor plan where the view in every room became the focal point.

ASR worked in conjunction with Mircea Ilie Construction and Nicolae Onofrei Custom Woodworking to ensure every last detail was perfectly thought out to create a refined palette that was cozy and modern while letting the city view become the focal point.
