By Tiffany Smolick

What do you get when you mix fun decor with a huge, Manhattan apartment?  You get Tim and Bernie’s stunning home.

Upon walking into the enviably spacious Manhattan apartment it felt like walking into paradise; it is so beautiful and bright. So beautiful, in fact, we just HAD to share it with the world.

Before + After: A Modern Kitchen Remodel

We completely remodeled the Manhattan apartment’s kitchen, opening it up and creating a light, bright oasis in the city. The drab, outdated kitchen was given a sleek, contemporary makeover with white gloss cabinets.

Check out the before and after photos of our bright and beautiful transformation below, then take a peak inside Tim and Bernie’s chic Manhattan abode.

The newly remodeled modern kitchen compliments the open, airy feel of this spacious Manhattan home.

We found the entire apartment — and their puppy, Ella — irresistible and just had to photograph it. The apartment’s beauty is only matched by the equally amazing personality of it’s residents.

Bernie loves art and going to galleries so it wasn’t surprising to see her apartment’s all-white walls featuring some of the best artwork and pieces I’ve seen in a long time. (By the way, the “B,L,T” on the wall stand for the initials of the family that lives here). The eclectic decor features pieces reminiscent of the southwest mixed with some fun and modern.

Contemporary NYC Bathroom Remodel

MyHome also remodeled the bathroom, transforming it into a relaxing retreat with clean lines, a floating vanity and minimal fixtures.

Can we just talk about how fun the faucets are?
