  • A couple who lived with their Dachshund (and not the other way around!) wanted to do a gut renovation on their apartment in Riverdale New York. The goal was to maximize storage for this small one bedroom apartment, and bring in elements of nature with a slight mid-century feel.

    The kitchen, although small, packs a lot of storage punch! Going for a warmer more rustic look here, we used a tumble marble for the backsplash with inserts of a copper decorative tile that we placed throughout.

    With a stroke of luck (and a great photographer!) we captured the family Dachshund under the walnut wood mid-century credenza in the foyer. The tinier, inanimate version of the Dachshund on the credenza, is a ceramic sculpture we found from  from Jonathan Adler.

    We added a new header over the space that connects the living room into the foyer in order to help define the space. We also added some crown and base moldings, and new wood floors throughout for a richer, more detailed look.

    The small bathroom was tiled from ceiling to floor with a light, stone looking, porcelain tile. Using borders around the room added detail and neutral color to the space. The custom vanity was created with exotic woods, and topped off with a marble stone countertop. Photo 5 of Dog Lover's Apartment modern home
