Simplicity in Style

alexis triplex1“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

So, what does a minimalist do when they really want to simplify?

If you’re ALEXIS STEWART you streamline even further than your original apartment and include only the barest essentials for your new triplex in New York City. What you’re left with is an overall feel of luxe sophistication and simplicity where mid-century modern furnishings are enhanced by expansive river views, a soft color palette, abundant white space, and sheer light. No matter how spare, it all works together to create a warm and relaxing home for her growing family.
