Main Street masterpiece

Designer Flora Di Menna created a refreshingly inviting space by focusing on soft, earthy tones with rich depth that enhance the effect of light throughout the suite.

“The palette is fresh and light filled. Creams and pale camels are infused with warmth and contrast through the mid-tone woods — the kitchen cabinets, the round walnut dining table — and the subtle patterns of the carpets, window treatments, and pillows.

“A paler scheme helps to expand the space,” Di Menna said.

In the main area of living, dining and kitchen, Di Menna kept to a minimal furniture plan with a sofa, chair and coffee table in more tailored lines and less bulky, shallower consoles tucked into niches at the perimeter or against a wall to keep them out of the way.

To save space, Menna gave the granite counter on the kitchen island just enough overhang to accommodate two upholstered stools.

Hardwood flooring in the common areas creates contrast but in the bedrooms Di Menna went with a high-quality broadloom carpet to both expand the space and allow the floor to feel soft and comforting to walk on.

To make efficient use of space in the master bedroom, Di Menna deftly added storage without adding undue bulk by choosing sleek, space-conscious furniture.

“Although the master has a walk-in closet, I’ve added three dressers. Having such a slim low profile, with barely-there hardware, they don’t intrude into the space at all and in fact complement it by adding a dark contrast to an otherwise creamy palette,” Di Menna said.
