Everyone seems to enjoy seeing ‘BEFORE and AFTER’ images of interiors – in this case the AFTER images are of Michael Kors and Lance Lepere’s apartment. (The BEFORE photos are from the previous owner – an Emmy Award winning television personality.)

Finding an apartment can be a daunting task for anyone, but having a vision, and VERY high standards can make the process all the more challenging!

Michael Kors and Lance Lepere looked at every apartment listing that held any promise over a very extended period of time, within a tightly defined geographic area, before finding this apartment.

As you can see in the ‘Before’ images, the place did not ‘show well’; however, Michael and Lance could see through the ‘rustic rural pastiche’ to see that the ‘bones’ could work for them – together we made it come to life.

Michael Kors was my first client. I had the pleasure of working with him on many projects large and small over a long period of time, however, this was a particularly meaningful project for me.  In addition to expressing the very specific point of view of a style leader, it was also to be a home for my long-time friend, and his partner.

It has been wonderful to witness Michael and Lance’s happiness together in this apartment.
