This Manhattan apartment was totally redesigned in just 90

When you move into a new home, there’s usually an expectation it’s going to take time to get the space exactly how you want it. Yet faced with a client brief for a 2,500-square foot apartment in the West Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, interior designer Justin Charette had just 90 days to bring young entrepreneurs Bella and Elio Boyd’s vision to life. 

This included removing a wall, electric and AV, painting and wallpapering, window treatments and custom built-ins, and that’s before even beginning to broach furnishing the three-bed, three-bath apartment, starting from zero. ‘We started completely from scratch,’ explains Justin. ‘Bella and Elio essentially moved in with just clothes, suitcases, and their beautiful Frenchies.’
