Not that we are jumping on this week's Oscar bandwagon or anything (oh go on then) - but the owner of this stunning apartment is actor Liev Schreiber - one of the stars of Spotlight awarded the Oscar for BEST PICTURE!
Liev and partner Naomi Watts (twice an Oscar nominee) have recently finished a huge renovation of their apartment - with stunning results.
Originally 2 separate lofts which the couple set about to convert into one family-friendly space with help from design firm Ashe + Leandro to assist with the interior design.
We love the sophisticated but ever-so family orientated approach to the design of the space above - obviously the couple's two boys will be the main users of this room, but at the same time, it also has a refreshingly grown-up feel.
The kitchen has a contemporary 'diner' vibe, with a dining nook / banquette and the chequered floor tiles. The soft blue bespoke cabinetry adds a softness to the more graphic qualities of the black over-head cabinets and flooring. Touches of aged brass (tapware /hardware), the marble splash back and timber panelling bring in warmth.
Naomi stated that when she first walked into to the apartment she felt "Wow - this is like a real grown up home" and this area above perfectly embodies that! A library for the couple's book/script collection with it's own bar area....(sigh - what a combination!). Divinely decorated in a dreamy green lacquer and topped with a painting of the Australian Cassowary - reflecting Naomi's connection (she moved there from the UK when she was fourteen).
The repetition of black tones appear though the apartment - and are used to great impact in the bathrooms - which have a timeless classic appeal combining antique pieces with modern fixtures.
It's clear that the relationship between the client and design firm was a positive one "Naomi brought a great eye and taste to the project and was a terrific creative partner" commented Leandro - and we love the supremely sophisticated result of this renovation which successfully combines the needs of both family and the A-list stars that live here.
