I’m lucky enough to continue to write for the magazine I used to edit, CTC&G and its sister pub, NYC&G. Every once in awhile I get a project that absolutely speaks to me and March’s NYC&G feature on Tilton Fenwick’s awesome, exploding-with-color downtown loft is one of them. I first met the ladies behind Tilton Fenwick, Suysel and Anne, at DIFFA a few years ago where we became fast friends. I previously wrote about one of their projects on Curbed and have been following their work ever since. I seriously love these girls—both their work and personalities just exude charm and fun. Here’s the loft in all it’s glory:
The best part about this: This living space is TAME for Tilton Fenwick. The China Seas Abre de Matisse fabric on the sofa was the starting point and they added in layers of yellow and blue.
The library is where they really showed off what they do. Custom blue lacquered walls and Schumacher’s Zanzibar on the tufted sofa. It takes real color geniuses to mix this much pattern and color and make it one of the coziest spots in the space.
And of course, Suysel and Anne can’t go without wallpaper in most of the bedrooms and bathrooms. I think they’ve only had one project where they didn’t use it. If you look closely at the headboard you’ll see the tufting is done in a brown linen, which tones down the traditional a little bit.
The client saw this Osborne & Little paper on the Tilton Fenwick blog and fell in love with it—and then hired TF for the project.
Luckiest little girl ever who gets to sleep in this bed cocooned in a Designer’s Guild fabric. You can’t see it, but the backside is the same fabric as the headboard.
