Garrow Kedigian is All Grown Up
03 . 28 . 14
I was first introduced to interior designer Garrow Kedigian at the 2009 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. His orange lacquered room may have been small but I could already tell he was destined for greatness. His own charming garret apartment was featured on New York Social Diary House Tour in 2009 but it is his new Park Avenue apartment that was just featured on the site today that will take your breath away. He mentions in the accompanying interview that he wanted to own a forever apartment by the time he was 40 and made that dream a reality. (He looks to be about 25 though so remind me to ask him what moisturizer he uses on his skin!) It’s full of all the wonderful details that designers don’t always get to do for their clients and I highly recommend checking out all the photos. If I wasn’t behind in my magazine reading, I would have know that the gorgeous space has also been featured in the December/January 2014 issue of House Beautiful. Can’t wait to see what the next 40 years bring for Garrrow!

He does look 25 and his use of color and texture; wow those glossy blues. In awe!

This is amazing, I especially love the TV behind the books!
Honestly I think the photos from NYSD were more interesting than the house beautiful (which was still a great article!). I have adored him since that Kips Bay room that you mention (did we see it together?). So glad he’s doing well and I could LITERALLY move right into his new apartment (not something I ever say lightly!) I was so excited this morning to open up NYSD house tour and there he was!
The color combinations are fantastic. Yes, AD has it right, the NYSD photos hold so much more interest than the HB photos. HB’s wide angle shots just don’t convey the same richness and depth.
loads of blue which is my favourite colour so to me every single picture is even more appealing. Very nice home. Thanks for sharing;)

I know some decorators find television screens a nuisance. But hiding them behind fake books seems to compound the problem.
I love him! I was a docent at Kips Bay when he did that small gentleman’s room, which was stunning and I got to hang and chat with him while I manned the room next door! He is the sweetest and uber talented, love his style and he truly is one of the tops I think in design!
