Right Meets Left Interior Design
Lights, color, action in a Harlem penthouse
Draw a line, and then complicate it. Make it double back on itself, make it swing. Artists often think like this while they’re working. And designers, too, as Courtney McLeod, of Right Meets Left Interior Design, demonstrates in this sunny Harlem penthouse. Taking a boldly scaled Roberto Juarez painting from 1stDibs dealer High Style Deco as her starting point, McLeod echoes its organic curves in a collection of rounded vases scattered throughout, courtesy of the same vendor. Then, she creates some synergy with the etched-brass top of a vintage coffee table by Philip LaVerne, another 1stDibs find. “I love the interplay of curved lines and the color palette that pulls the design into a cohesive whole as you move from the living area to the dining area,” McLeod says, with a note of swing.
“I believe in the importance of designing joyfully elegant, color-confident interiors that blend each client’s unique tastes with my vivid, collected aesthetic.”
