BJS Assoc is a full-service boutique design firm with a talent for creating modern living spaces with a gentle nod to classicism. Based in New York City and managed by founding principal Bonnie J. Steves, the firm is known for transforming interiors into elegant spaces that foster a fresh, comfortable and easy lifestyle together with inspired design sensibility.
A sweeping view of one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world made the perfect backdrop to create a dramatic and stunning penthouse. The client wanted to embrace and celebrate the seasonal changes viewed through her floor to ceiling windows for the interior design project.
The design vision took its lead not only from the views but also from the meaningful art and a ceremonial Persian rug. The rich colour palette was pulled directly from the Persian rug and threads its way throughout the space. Even as you enter the home the feeling and mood embrace you by layering elegant patterns and decorative elements that take their direction from natural formations and nature.
A hint of the client’s passion for Asian influences, and being an equestrian enthusiast, is interspersed throughout, even in the dining room chandelier. A bit of whimsy is seen in the Jacques Duval – Brasseur crab cocktail table.
With gorgeous floor to ceiling windows, the Chicago penthouse is an example of sophisticated, contemporary living on top of the world. The main emphasis in the living room area is on the view. The large, comfortable blue velvet sofa sits facing the floor to ceiling windows, giving a marvellous view of Chicago.
The sofa is given a pop of colour with the addition of the red accent pillows, and the wooden framed chairs, along with a wooden drawer help create a perimeter around the centre of the room, defining the space. Adding drama and a sense of scale to the room is the large artwork piece along one side of the wall, which helps to anchor the room. It provides a stunning backdrop to this modern Chicago penthouse.
