One of my very first friends in NYC was a distinctive, sometimes kinda normal, but often offbeat guy named Jeff Fazio.  Jeff was affable, fun, carefree and seemingly “knew everyone” after a decade of working in a variety of upscale designed focus retail stores.

At the time of this project, Jeff was a buyer at Barney’s, working directly with the remarkable Phyllis Pressman – creator and curator of the Chelsea Passage department at the ORIGINAL Barney’s on 17th Street & Seventh Avenue; it was another era…

A well educated, active and very fun guy, with broad interests asked me to assist him with a makeover of his two bedroom apartment in a nice Art Deco building overlooking the Hudson River that had beautiful original steel casement windows and great Western views.

I worked with him to renovates the apartment to take better advantage of the views, integrated audio & video throughout, purchased new, vintage and antique furniture and assisted him with expanding his photography collection.  We also added a painting and some prints into the mix.

The apartment was featured in SHELTER (now called INTERIORS) including the cover!

I can report that the apartment had a glorious ten year run as the proverbial ‘bachelor pad’, but the owner is a bachelor no longer. He is now married and has two children living happily on the Upper West Side very near to Central Park.

Enjoy the weekend!
