BRAD PARKER'S WEST VILLAGE STUDIO: RUSTIC ASIAN MOUNTAIN LODGE
Comfortability just pissed her pantsuit. We are incredibly proud to feature one of the West Village’s truly hidden gems. Nestled among the quiet cobblestone streets sits this true wonder of awe-inspiring luxury, a cavalcade of comfort, and the fulcrum of what makes this part of New York one of nature’s most sought-after getaways. If a freaking bear could sleep here - it would. It’s that cozy.
TEXAS ELEGANCE MEETS RUSTIC CHARM
Brad explained that the most significant thing in his home is the handcrafted cherry-oak chess table that sits beneath a window overlooking the West Village. "It reminds me every day to not take life or work too seriously, and at the end of the day to look around and smile a little bit." Having a view of a quiet West Village corner would lend to much inspiration in any home, but because his studio building is so centrally located in the heart of the West Village, Brad is lucky to have the best of little of everything around.
EVERY CORNER JUST REEKS OF ELEGANCE
"I am not originally from here. I grew up in Texas, where my style was greatly influenced by my mother's southwestern heritage. Bright colors, decorative tile, desert tones, family oriented, etc. I think working in interactive opened me up a bit and I saw that with designers like John Varvatos you can deconstruct that rigid New York, embrace that grunge of the Lower East Side, but still keep it classy. After I moved here to the West Village, I think I combined that deconstructed New York style with a bit of fun."
WELL MAINTAINED, WARM AND COMFORTABLE
Brad knows the importance of having a place to come home to each and every night that you feel welcome, cozy, relaxed. Every detail, every corner, every nook and shelf and surface is meticulously crafted to convey a sense of well-being and good down-home comfortability.
ASIAN FUSION BATHROOM DESIGN WITH AUSTIN-CENTRIC FLOURISHES
Brad opted for a restorative bathroom design with warm woods, Asian elements, and antique furniture. He asked that it retain a well-worn but cozy aesthetic with some Austin-related stuff hung up someplace.
GOURMET KITCHEN REMODEL ADDS ELEGANCE TO STUDIO HOME
"As a mostly eat-out type of guy, having an overly-large kitchen isn't of paramount importance, but since the kitchen area is the first thing you see upon arrival, it was necessary for the room to be as welcoming as possible! I'm talking about CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!!
BRASS ELEPHANTS ON A LEDGE
"Ah, those things...Ya, they're for good luck!" Brad says dismissively as we survey the kitchen for additional items of interest to take pictures of.
Easy and beautiful to live in, “houses” become “homes.” There’s no place like the homes a good understanding of spacial skills transforms. From traffic patterns and room layouts to materials, furnishings and finishes, a little creativity helps you enhance the aesthetics and usability of your living spaces – according to your style.
In the heart of the home … food-prep spaces that inspire. Homeowners, family members and guests gravitate toward the kitchen. These studios represent stylish – yet timeless – spaces that are both functional and fun, whether you’re cooking for one … or one hundred.
Calm the spirit – quiet the mind. Spa-like getaways that regenerate and restore. Guest, master and main baths can truly transform into rooms of rest, with interiors that create a sense of calmness and aesthetic harmony with adjacent spaces.
