In the living room, Katch I.D. arranged the furniture in strict symmetry to create a feeling of order, serenity and spaciousness upon entry. The room was softened with an ultra matte Japanese plaster finish on the walls and wool gabardine drapery to create an airy backdrop for the room’s artwork and glamorous furnishings. Anchoring the seating area are two tailored bone linen sofas, which flank a pair of cream colored, hand-lacquered Chinese tables from
Robert Kuo. Artwork by Anish Kapoor, Art Deco pieces from Maison Gerard and contemporary stools by Azadeh Shladovsky for Jean de Merry add sparkle and depth to the room.

Extending off the living room is an intimately scaled and welcoming den that is flooded with natural light. The room features a painting by George Condo and a deep, plush sofa upholstered in a putty wool Clarence House fabric and scattered with silk velvet pillows. The two primary walls showcase a floor-to-ceiling collection of art, fashion and design books. Completing the space are a pearl-gray flax rug and chinchilla throw that add to the softened luxury of the room’s refined eclecticism.

A 1960’s cream colored natural parchment and brass bar cart by Aldo Tura stands ready in the den for cocktail hour. A honed limestone slab floor and Mottola’s contemporary art collection are seen in the foyer beyond.

The family-friend chef’s kitchen is pristine with over-scaled subway tile, optic white glass slab countertops and contemporary cabinetry. Reclaimed oak floors and Czech factory lighting by Ann Morris Antiques soften the look.

The breakfast room is bright and airy with full-height windows and an open glass door that frame the scenic property views. Decoration is kept to a minimum in the space with a pendant fixture by Chameleon Fine Lighting and a custom mahogany and bronze table. Sturdy white canvas slip-covered chairs are set on castors for convenience.

The lodge is a reconstructed, reclaimed Canadian barn that is home to a collection of fine large-scaled antiques, including a dining table originally commissioned for a Scottish castle. The nickel station light is by Ann Morris and hangs down 30 feet from the ceiling rafter. The chairs are by Lucca Studio and the art is by Robert Indiana.

A glass enclosed conservatory houses Mottola’s collection of antique antlers, which are mounted on the bluestone fireplace. The space has a warm and more informal feel with mid-century and contemporary furniture and a turn-of-the century leather steamer trunk.

One of two master bathrooms, this space feels like a spa with Thassos and Calacatta marble and a glass-enclosed steam room shower at center.
