Renovation Before & After: Upper West Side Residence, NYC

Ben Wattenberg did an interesting segment on the arts and the Derriere Guard (a new avant-garde, which is different from the real avant-garde, which has become the establishment) that convenes at an Upper West Side Artist residence. Fairfax & Sammons renovated and won an award for best decoration from Old House Journal. The treatment of the studio room was inspired by a photograph of the interior of Kildowie in Maidenhead, England, by Dunn and Watson, which shows a room also dominated by a large window... with a window seat at its base, and a gallery round one side.
