An Upper East Side townhouse for a young English family has all the color, comfort, and charm of classic English style, but with added oomph! The family asked for a glamorous house that was a touchstone to their ideas of urban chic. They were fearless in their daring use of color, but imminently practical when making decisions about comfort and sheer beauty. English rooms are infused with color and romance. The chromium yellow lacquer that glosses over the living room walls sets the stage for a spectacular mural by the esteemed artist Mark Giglio. The house bridges the gap between traditional and modern and sets a new standard for contemporary luxury.
