A modern apartment can seduce even the most classic of lovers. Spacious, bright, and airy, meet actress Lois Robbins’ home in Central Park!
Located in the bustling heart of New York City with a stunning view of Central Park, the apartment was transformed into a dream home through the work of personal friend and architect, Andrea Miranda. The actress’s modern apartment is a testament to her style and celebrity status.
Lois Robbins’ place embodies her iconic personality and exudes style, possessing all the hallmarks of a celebrity home. The choice of the Modern Style in the decoration was not just a coincidence. Practical, with functional furniture and windows that favor the entry of natural light, the space that the actress shares with her husband, Andrew Zaro, invites anyone to fall in love with each room.
Art and Comfort In The Same Space
Under Anthony Ingrao and Randy Kemper, the interior design team faced a challenge in creating a home for the celebrity couple that perfectly blended their love of art and paintings with their need for comfort and coziness.
Boasting a collection of over 100 works of art, including both hyper-realistic and abstract pieces by renowned modern artists, Lois Robbins’ modern apartment serves as a testament to their appreciation for art. However, the true highlight of the home is not the art, but the rooms themselves. “We aimed to treat all the rooms as elegantly as possible, where art only added to the luster”, says Kemper.
Exuberant and lively, much like the actress herself, each space is bursting with color and texture, making anyone who enters feel instantly astonished. The design team’s original proposal of a sky blue wall finish was quickly changed to Bordeaux, the actress’s favorite color, to provide guests with a warm and inviting atmosphere. The centerpiece of the room, the steel, concrete, paint, and 24-karat gold center table, provides the perfect backdrop to the textured sofa and armchairs.
Every thoughtful detail of the modern apartment
The modern aesthetic of the apartment, with clean lines, geometric shapes, and natural materials combined with individuality, creates a unique and personalized atmosphere.
And the first impact is seen right from the living room. The space represented a challenge for the designers due to its three glass walls and the need to maintain a spacious, airy, and at the same time cozy environment for the residents. To accomplish this, the furniture was chosen to give the illusion of “floating” in the large, open room.
The central table was positioned next to the sofa, its curved design providing both a light and practical touch. The other furnishings, with their wavy and spherical shapes, complement the overall design style and are further highlighted by strategically placed sculptures and artworks.
As an actress, singer, and entertainment enthusiast, Lois Robbins’ modern apartment often serves as the venue for lively parties. For this reason, the space also has a piano and a bar, that provide opportunities for the couple and their guests to share and enjoy good times together.
The dining room in the modern apartment is fit for a true movie star — and exudes luxury —. It features two separate seating areas that perfectly balance sophistication and good taste. The larger dining table is a renowned designer piece, while a comfortable sofa for added comfort accompanies the dining chairs. The entire apartment boasts large windows that allow for ample natural light, creating an interior atmosphere of peace and relaxation while maintaining its contemporary and bohemian essence, true to the actress’ style.
For the couple’s bedroom, the modern apartment houses a neutral and rather intimate color palette. The rich brown of the wood furniture perfectly complements the neutral tones and geometric shapes of the overhead lamp — which is one of the few light sources considering the set of windows with the beautiful view.
The custom-made bed is dressed with personalized embroidered bedding, adding an extra touch of luxury. The light-toned, velvety carpet adds to the overall comfort of the space. The room is finished with a floating table anchored by a table lamp and a wall-mounted TV, completing the well-appointed decor.
The bathroom in the actress’ modern apartment features expressive tones in the finishes, which are mostly stone. This luxurious and intimate space is designed specifically for the famous actress, who prefers to have a private retreat to herself. “We don’t share a bathroom,” Robbins says of her and her husband’s primary suite.
Like a true “bath girl,” the bathtub is positioned by a large window overlooking the city, providing a tranquil and relaxing space. A white side table is accompanied by decorative items such as a vase of flowers and scented candles to complete the ambiance.
Lois Robbins’ modern apartment is a refuge in the middle of New York City, with stunning views and a dash of luxury. Check out more living room inspiration on the TAPIS Studio projects page. The best of interior design projects by the best professionals!
