Tuxedo Park, New York
Originally designed in 1911, this elegant stone summer residence was renovated for a young family to be used as a year round retreat. D’Aquino Monaco adopted a joyful and irreverent approach to the design to make it more suitable to the family. To lighten the feeling of the residence, vertical stripes of in a rainbow of color carry over the ornate crown molding of the living room, framed art by the family’s children is hung in the paneled library. The end result is a traditional and historic home looked at through a young family’s light-hearted lens.
