RonMarvin3 Interior designer, Ron Marvin recently decorated his friend's renovated apartment in the meatpacking district. Marvin has a great sense of style which clearly comes from his experience in visual merchandising for brands like William Sonoma, Pottery Barn, and West Elm. What I love about this place is that it is approachable and masculine. Integrating furnishings from Mitchell Gold, Room and Board and Williams Sonoma Home with high end pieces, vintage finds, and custom details adds sophistication.


Marvin uses the same color scheme throughout most of the home alternating dark and light grays and adding punches of rust and salmon colors.  I love the Dean sofa from Room and Board , tailored and plush in a rich charcoal gray.


I believe that the bedroom should always be a retreat.  The dark charcoal on the wall makes the room feel inviting and cozy while the symmetry and veneered wood furnishings adds formality.

Did someone say grasscloth?  I love the use of this rich grasscloth in the den/study.  The texture adds a softness to the space that makes it inviting and I love the gridded artwork above the black leather sofa.

Marvin has a gift for making even small spaces feel spacious and luxurious.  He is certainly a designer to be on the lookout for in the coming years.
