Featured Design Project: Tilton Fenwick

New York City interior design duo of Anne Maxwell Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham has done it again! These talented designers have been attracting attention from the moment they started their boutique design firm Tilton Fenwick in 2010. In three short years they managed to receive multiple awards from Traditional Home Magazine and International Furnishings and Design Association, as well as feature their work in national magazines like Lonny, Luxe, Newsday, and others. Now they can add the New York Times to that impressive list of editorial coverage with a story very close to home.

Anne and her husband Ryan opened the doors of their newly renovated DUMBO apartment to the folks from the New York Times to capture all the amazing work that went into transforming this plain loft into a stylish, warm, and inviting home for the expanding family. The results are stunning…

The living room is a plethora of color and pattern bathed in the sunshine coming through large windows that overlook Manhattan. Anne and Suysel used vintage furniture reupholstered with modern fabrics to reflect their signature fresh-take-on-traditional style.

For the floors, the Tilton Fenwick duo picked Dune in Black. “We chose Dune for the Living areas for both style and function. We love that in a high-traffic area this sisal is virtually indestructible yet still so chic. It was also a big part of our scheming of the space. We wanted something dark on the floors to ground the space and relate back to the window casings and vintage black chairs in the room.”

We are always excited to see before and after shots, and Anne and Suysel didn’t disappoint. Below are photos that capture amazing transformations of the bathroom and entryway accentuated by bold colors and tasteful accessories.

“In the Nursery, we selected the Tufted Wool rug in pattern ‘Interlace’ for both design and comfort. Knowing there will be a baby crawling around on this rug, we wanted something that was both good for some traffic but also super soft for a baby. The Interlace pattern is 100% part of our design vocabulary – we love it’s fun and whimsical pattern that brought another layer of visual joy to the overall Nursery room design.”
