A stunning private suite in a 1800's Harlem Brownstone FEATURED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES HOME SECTION! This room has exceptional design features (read below), luxury amenities, brand new bathroom and totally renovated with historical flair.
A two floor walk-up through a stunning hallway with beaten silver walls and moroccan tiles brings you to the front door of your suite. The studio apartment is a serene space in dreamy shades of white and pale lavender-grey. Two walls are covered in contrasting trompe l'oeil wallpapers. The "tongue in cheek" looks create depth, vision and perspective. One displays a wall of "books" and ivy, and the other ornate molding panels with visuals of antique garden urns. Instant drama! The fireplace (which is non-working for now for your safety) is dressed in carved ledges and faded mirrors. The floors throughout are Mongolian teakwood with hand aged original brick walls and soft lighting, including a signature old light fixture which casts radiant rays on the ceiling. The graceful cream queen four poster bed is fitted with a dream "Casper" mattress made of two technologies for a better night's sleep, as well as Belgian stone washed linens and waffle weave towels. Antique furniture including a French resting chaise, a 60's bench, marble side tables, old folk art figurine and vintage photos fill the space with comfort and lightness. The bathroom glows with an entire wall of beveled mirrored panels that could not be photographed here and with exquisite Roman tiles, new glass shower, and a rain shower head. A "smart" tv with netflix movies, air-conditioner and heating add to the amenities of this very fine living space. The suite also incudes a compact wet bar area with kitchen sink, marble counter, small fridge, microwave, slow cooker, toaster oven coffee & tea maker. There are lovely handmade plates, glasses, cups and dishes for your use. Please note there is no stove top. I call this suite "HEAVEN" because it relaxes you and allows you to dream. The windows outfitted with new solar shades overlooks the beautiful backyard. This space comfortably fits two people. What people say upon arrival is that this is better then the photos which I have to admit are good:) But these are totally untouched photos, nothing has been altered or changed. Expect the best!

Respectful and responsible behavior as in your own home.
I was born and raised in India and moved to New York more than twenty-five years ago. Mainly I have worked in the hospitality industry, marketing luxury hotels and later creating my own custom international travel company, and have also been involved with a children's non-profit organization as executive director. My continuing passion has been world cultures and learning how people intersect their lives through food and travel. Over the past two years I have been developing a retail brand centered around the lifestyle of Chai, 'Chaiwali'; the new tea culture, offering healthy global cuisine to a larger audience. A place where great design, ancient wisdom and modern taste come together with a relaxed vibe. The Chaiwali flagship opens in Harlem soon.
