Okay, first off, this is not so much a portfolio review as a post about one specific project of Mr Call Designs — the NYC-based interior design firm of Jon Call, whose relaxed/refined masculine style is nothing short of extra-terrific. Doing a little sleuthing on his Facebook page led me to learn that he’s recently been in Austin; small world…
This project is in the West Village and shows off some amazing skills; from space planning to the selection of furnishings and that terrific color palette, this has to be one of my favorite tours in quite some time.
First, Mr Call himself:
Now, the West Village apartment:
This fireplace with a waterfall mantle treatment is a favorite design; it brings to mind a similar fireplace designed by Thomas O’Brien. Classic and timeless American design.
This shot of the living space shows off the terrific color palette and begins to give a hint at the amazing space planning. Hint: there’s a bedroom on the other side of the slatted screen/wall on the left.
The living room can easily accommodate dining when required, thanks to smart furniture choices and great space planning.
These textiles, the paint color, and the bedside lamp turn this intimate bedroom space into something really special.
This perfectly-tailored workspace is just right.
