This NYC pied-à-terre is for the lovely Looser family from Houston, Texas. M Monroe Design was brought in to manage all construction, design custom millwork, and collaborate with a Houston Designer (and owner of Boxwood Houston).

The Residential Renovation included: Gutting the kitchen, refinishing bathroom tile, replacing shower rods with custom glass doors, custom closet shelving, hardwood floor refinishing, custom wall build outs for hidden TV wires, all new lighting fixtures, fresh paint on all surfaces, new doorknobs, new appliances, custom heater surrounds (millwork) and custom MBR TV unit and desk/ storage system, custom remote controlled roller blinds, and art installations.

“After purchasing our pied-à-terre in Manhattan, we were very fortunate to be directed to Michala Monroe to help us with our remodeling project. Not only were we impressed with her design work, but also we were thrilled to retain her as our project manager. Because our primary residence is in Texas, Michala and her staff meticulously managed every aspect of our project from start to finish interfacing with our contractors on a daily basis. Michala was also so insightful with our overall contemporary mid-century approach. Due to Michala’s extreme professionalism, attention to detail and intelligent design, we could not have been more pleased with the final outcome. We are enjoying the Upper East Side and our fabulous home in New York thanks to Michala.” –Beth & Greg Looser
