For better or worse, painting alone is capable of completely transforming the mood of a home. In order to find the perfect finishes for this New York home, Incorporated worked closely with New York-based professional painting company Paint Werks Interiors. “This project entailed painting a unique array of colors throughout the apartment that really made it pop without feeling overwhelming,” says owner Philip Vuletic. “We have at our disposal a variety of innovative painting techniques to go well beyond the client’s expectations.”

If the playful, ultra vibrant interiors of this five-bedroom apartment look more like California than Manhattan, that’s kind of the point. Mom in the family of seven that calls this Battery Park City pad home grew up in sunny Santa Cruz, California. She loves New York, but she also wanted her kids to experience a bit of the colorful beach vibe that she had in her hometown. 

Enter Incorporated, the New York based multidisciplinary architecture and design studio brought on to combine two adjacent units into one 4,700-square-foot dream home that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor experiences. That means real birch tree trunks and reclaimed barn wood alongside a custom “tree house” for the kids surrounded by birch forest wallpaper. “Her goal with this renovation was to recreate the front and back yard she grew up with for her whole family, but in an urban context,” says Incorporated partner Drew Stuart.

 And, of course, there’s dazzling use of color. “Anyone who is familiar with the playfulness of California design culture or has walked the Santa Cruz boardwalk will understand the influences here,” says Stuart. “Bright greens, azure blues, weathered surfaces, and vintage wall coverings all evoke a Southern California halcyon childhood.”
