I covet the work of many designers but none more than top New York designer, Shamir Shah. His refined aesthetic has inspired me for years. One of my favorite spaces (period) is the Chelsea loft Shah shares with his partner, artist Malcolm Hill. The design is timeless and rich with texture, luxe finishes, and rugged yet sophisticated.
This alcove kitchen is pretty much ideal as it economizes on space. I love the contrast between the lacquered white top cabinets and the dark walnut base cabinets. Not to mention the sumptuous basalt stone counter tops and sparkling black mosaic backsplash.
This dining area is warm and inviting featuring a fun David Weeks chandelier and a walnut/black lacquer credenza.
Love the linear custom walnut headboard in the bedroom along with the custom bureau. I also enjoy the warm neutral color palette carried throughout all of the spaces.
Well just look at this galley style bathroom with double sink vanity. And painting the door white on the bathroom side is clever. The pull integration into the drawers of the oak vanity is a trademark of Shah's that I love. I also enjoy the transition between the white ceramic tiles and the quartzite forming an accent wall at the spa -like bathtub.
