The client had been a bachelor in the first project SVD collaborated with him on in The Trump Tower, which took a very stately direction. For this project, the client had since met someone, who injected an explosion of personality into the design with her incredible eye as a notable jewelry designer and collected items from lifelong travels. The muse simply became, the bolder and less expected, the better.
When SVD first met the client, he had recently been widowed - it was undeniably a very sad time to experience. By the time he reached out to design his next home, he was profoundly connected to a dynamic woman whom he went on to marry. It was a deeply fulfilling evolution that carried the designer/client relationship far beyond a mere interior design project.
