Glickman. “I texted him photos and really had
to talk him into it. In the end, he trusted my
instincts, since this is what I do for a living.”
The couple and their team of movers
stumbled over snowbanks later that winter
and Glickman got right to work transforming
the space into their personal haven. Fortunately, the unit’s long line of prior inhabitants
had left the decorative detailing intact. After
the peach paint had been wiped away with
fresh coats of a subtle, neutral hue of Benjamin Moore Gray Cloud, the interiors started
to regain their luster.
While Glickman was drawn to the gracious Victorian-era detailing, she felt the
interiors should be eclectic and artsy, with
traditional furnishings paired with midcentury pieces and a few trendier items.
Tapping the go-to resources she’s developed over her decade in the interior design
business, Glickman went on the hunt for vintage pieces. A 1960s Mastercraft console
came from a dealer in North Carolina. Now
lacquered black, it functions as a bar in the
dining room. The 6-foot-tall gilt mirror above
the living room fireplace, reclaimed from
the living room sofa from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is upholstered in Meridian Citron, a yellow
that pops against the blue-gray walls. The piece is traditionally styled with rolled arms and deep
enough to be comfortable when Glickman and Batchelder stretch out to watch television or read.
Black leather chairs have brass frames. Glickman had the wooden side chairs, sourced from One
Kings Lane, finished in black lacquer and upholstered with leopard-print cowhide.
