Exploring the often excessive interiors of several New York homes.

This series continues to be a delight of quintessential excess. And while it is hard not to be distracted by the celebrity of the clients, the interiors themselves are never cookie cutter and only occasionally egregious. Rather, they are a built environment reflecting very strong – often eccentric – personal taste, lifestyle and social position. Art features heavily and again reflectively.
Artist Andres Serrano’s ode to the gothic is dark-on-dark with skulls, heraldry and a massive chandelier punctuating the altogether disturbing gloom. The Columbus Circle apartment is perhaps the most art laden, with every surface dedicated to a work of art including a massive Warhol gun, which sits atop a wall of Garden 5 psychedelic wallpaper by artist Eli Sudbrack. For others, classic design is a focal point. Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich’s loft, renovated by MADE in 2002, allows each piece breathing room without the pedestal. It is a living, liveable environment that just happens to have great furniture.
