If you are in town this weekend and looking for something design related to do, then I suggest heading over to the Elle Decor Modern Life Concept HouseElle Decor magazine paired 10 of its A-List Designers to Watch from the past two years with brand partners in two apartments in the new condominium project at +aRt in West Chelsea.  One of those designers included Jesse Carrier of Carrier & Co. who was partnered with Room & Board whose room can be seen here.  Jesse was on hand when I visited the show house a weeks ago and said that the room turned out a lot like their rendering below.

They actually found everything for the room at Room & Board except for the tables in front of the sofa which is pretty amazing.

The room set up is perfect inspiration for someone who lives in a small New York apartment or studio and needs a space to function as a living room, dining room, and sometimes bedroom.

Even the stereo which kept us in the groove on the day of my visit was from Room & Board.

Jesse did accessorize with a few personal pieces including a photo of his children.

I used to think that using pieces from just one source was the epitome of boring but I have to say that the Carrier & Co. room really changed my mind. It just goes to show that a talented designer can create a great room on any budget and from any source.  I especially love how Jesse hid the huge unsightly HVAC vent with the leaning mirror below.  But then again, I expect nothing but the very best from the interior designer to Anna Wintour!

    And I love a mirror by a window anyway–extra light.
