Relaxed Contemporary Townhome – Bella Vista
A blend of identities intersects in throughout this townhouse in Philadelphia to create a monochrome and minimal contemporary custom home. The neutral interior tells stories of worldwide travel, and masculine identity through a carefully curated gallery wall in the main family room. Memories of tours through Cuba, Indonesia, Morocco and more line the focal wall and support the storytelling components of the home’s interior design.
As one moves through the modern interior, minimal layers unfold to expose the rich details in every room. The clients are active travelers—a trait that we held in high esteem throughout the design development from room to room. All of the framed art in the home is original and consists of photos of the client’s global adventures.
Warm elements like rustic flooring, cow hide rugs and natural components like curved furniture, sheepskins, and modern lamps allow for an up-to-date look that fits the architecture of this 4200 square-foot home in Bella Vista, Philadelphia.
There is continuity among rooms that feature a black and white color story that is also reflects on the fifth floor indoor/outdoor entertaining areas. The interior design maintains a neutral palette that integrates eclectic import items, with stark black metal finishes and white transitional themes for the homeowner’s custom aesthetic.
The upstairs den off a large party-size balcony that overlooks Center City, Philadelphia and attaches to a large den with full kitchenette for friend and family’s gatherings. The master bedroom has for ample space including a serpentine chaise lounge and roomy his and hers walk-in custom closets. Upon walking into the master bathroom, one is greeted with floor to ceiling windows and white marble, showcasing contrasting veining for the custom glass enclosure shower giving the entire space an open airy feel.
