Before & After: This New Build Apartment Is Unrecognisable After A Home Makeover

A new build in Bronxville, New York received a complete transformation and the result is almost unrecognisable...

Part of a new apartment complex, a two-bedroom flat in Bronxville, New York, had been recently built and was a blank canvas for the new owners. But the flat lacked personality, so the couple approached sister duo Erin Hackett and Meghan Hackett-Cassidy of Hackett Interiors to give it some oomph and pizazz.

The couple wanted a serene scheme, and a home they could feel relaxed in.

Since no-one had lived in the apartment before it was a completely blank canvas, and the Hackett sisters had the opportunity to choose every detail from the flooring to the kitchen, furniture, accents, wallpaper, and beyond.

The apartment sits on the top floor of the building, with large windows and lots of light. Erin and Meghan worked to leverage that serenity and design with furniture, layouts, and a colour palette that didn’t feel too harsh in the space.

The modern design and empty spaces of the apartment created the perfect blank canvas for a fresh look.

The kitchen features a light scheme of white and blue-grey. The couple didn’t want the kitchen to look too traditional, so Erin and Meghan suggested a classic subway tile with chic CB2 barstools that they reupholstered.

With an open floor-plan and layout between the living room and the kitchen, the sisters wanted to keep the muted tones cohesive while also adding subtle hints of lilac, lavender, and touches of metallic.

For the bedroom, the designers chose cream over crisp, as they felt that it could feel too harsh in the space. They chose Benjamin Moore ‘vanilla milkshake’ for the walls to allow for the patterns on curtains and upholstery and textures in pillows to show.
