A fantastic apartment built in the 1940's, given new life with modern touches while still keeping the beautiful original details.
Welcome to our gallery featuring a fresh new spin on a stunning 1940s era apartment.
This amazing space was designed by Rob Stuart Interiors. Rob Stuart Interiors is a New York based design firm that prides itself on being able to not only design a functional and beautiful space, but also in their ability to decipher the needs and wants of the client, thereby creating a space that reflects what the client truly needs, even when they can’t articulate it.
This magnificent apartment is art deco with modern touches. The color palette is a combination of contemporary neutrals and bold jewel colors popular during the 1940s.
The furnishings in the living room (shown above) are tailored in gray with a bold zebra-patterned area rug beneath the glass-topped coffee table.
Look for some of the most stunning details of this home, like the frosted glass doors that can be pulled across to separate the kitchen from the rest of the home, or the built-in vintage china cabinets in the dining room.
Be sure to study the living room closely; the fireplace looks original, but is actually a recreation of a period fireplace from another home. The same goes for the exposed beams: these are aged to look original, while they’re really simple additions to the architectural charm of the home.
We hope you’ll enjoy this fantastic creation by Rob Stuart Interiors!
A close up on the living room’s wood burning fireplace and the modern beige suede chair next to it. A fringed cashmere throw blanket in a beautiful bold berry purple is slung over the back of the rounded chair. The beautiful black soapstone around the fireplace adds an air of elegance.
A close up on the mantle, showing the veining in the beautiful stone and the details. The simple coral decorations pull in the bold berry color in a softer, more natural hue.
The small entryway into the apartment has an ornate wrought iron side table against a light gray wallpaper with white concentric circles.
The top of the hallway’s iron table is a beautiful dark wood with a fantastic grain that can be seen in the close up. A convenient and pretty shell key bowl is a perfect place to keep track of keys and other small objects.
A stunning dining room with a velvet bench seat on one end against the built-in china cabinets and two white vinyl dining chairs. The checkerboard tile floor continues into the kitchen through the archway.

Through the archway is the kitchen with an oven in a vintage style. The backsplash is a charcoal subway tile with a mosaic above the stovetop. The archway hides frosted-glass pocket doors that can be closed to separate the two spaces for a more intimate atmosphere.
