Exclusive Designer Tips from Lenox Hill Hospital’s Inaugural Designer Showhouse of New York

We spoke one-on-one with designers from our favorite rooms at Lenox Hill Hospital’s Inaugural Designer Showhouse of New York and got exclusive tips on how they make their interiors so stunning. Check them out:

Daniel Park Design

The living room designed by Daniel Park was the epitome of French elegance. He warmed up the modern architectural features with toasted hues & lots of metallic and reflective features. With Daniel, it was all about the details–a chocolate brown velvet sofa was contrasted by back cushions in a ribbed linen/cotton blend from Italy & his pillows were custom made with embroidered crystals.

Daniel’s Design Tip: “I believe that you should begin a room design with a strong feature element that will anchor your space. I started with the abstract oil on canvas painting that hangs along the sofa wall because I was inspired by its refined colors, dramatic scale, and sophisticated movement.”

 Caleb Anderson Design NYC

Caleb Anderson showed no fear of the small bedroom he was assigned to. He plunged himself into the space, addressing and finding solutions to its fall backs, turning it into what was one of our favorite rooms in the show house. A mix of modern & vintage pieces provides what Caleb describes as “quirk & elegance” at the same time while the mirror above the bed, gives “depth & detail” to the room.

Caleb’s Design Tip: “In bedroom design, I prefer to work with rich and varying textures over pattern. The look is layered and quiet, but adds an elevated sense of luxury and comfort. In my bedroom design I mixed tonal silks, velvets, linens and even mink. Line the inside of [canopy bed] draperies with a contrasting fabric to create a sophisticated cocoon and give dimension to your bed.”

Jacqueline Hosford Interior Design LLC

Jacqueline’s room, entitled, “I Wanna Kiss You on a Windy Day” had a sweeping quality to it, and the most interesting use of draped fabric we’ve seen in a while. The ceilings in all of the condos at the show house were exceptionally high, and she played on this with a statement fabric that really made the room sing.

Jacqueline’s Design Tip: “Work with existing conditions, but don’t let them, if possible, drive the design. I had an aesthetic issue that needed to be solved: The existing closet door wall was literally “butt ugly” with four industrial butt hinges on each of four door panels that dominated the room.  I [also] had this amazingly tall ceiling to work with – I immediately knew I wanted to work with the 3-D height of the space for dramatic effect so I covered [the doors] with drapery that angled to one corner of the ceiling!”

Harry Heissmann Inc. Interior Design

Harry Heissmann’s room was small, but carried huge importance to the designer. The look he created payed homage to his late “free-spirited” grandmother, who played a huge role in his life. “She loved peacocks and sunflowers and blue—nature in general—she loved ceramics and quirky things,” explains Harry. “I’m convinced she sort of guided my hands. [She’s] what the room is to me—full of emotion, character and love – just like her.”

Harry’s Design Tip: “Don’t be afraid to treat the walls in a small room with a darker color/finish. It creates a canvas for your use of pretty much anything. Also, mimc a ‘skyline’ by always making sure you’re creating interesting points for your eyes to discover—something high, something low, colors &textures.”

Baltimore Design Group

Keith Baltimore took black and white to a new level with a cool white leather sofa, custom canopies and accents of blues & greens. Despite the building’s Wall Street location, Keith made this feel like a true Hamptons retreat!

Keith’s Design Tip: “Always have an element of surprise,” like the unexpected canopies that sit behind the couch.
