Wake + Loom spins its magic in a whimsical west midtown reno.
High above the city in a White Provisions condo, an Instagrammable haven awaits that blends a Californian’s effortlessly cool style with a Southerner’s taste for color and pattern—undeniably the stamps of Holly Conlan and Gabriela Eisenhart. “We launched our design marriage in 2015 and have been partying ever since,” says Atlanta native Eisenhart, who, together with Los Angeles-based Conlan, form bicoastal interior design firm Wake + Loom.
The duo flies back and forth multiple times a year applying their chic aesthetic to a variety of projects. “We gravitate toward a West Coast, eclectic vibe with bright, minimal palettes, but love to infuse a bit of whimsy at the same time,” Conlan says. Their mission is always the same: to bring their residential clients’ stories to life through their homes.
The Cinderella story of the White Provisions condo, which boasts a prime location in the heart of Westside Provisions District and panoramic views of the Midtown skyline, began as nothing but a blank canvas with large windows and an open floor plan. After a hefty face-lift “with a serious side of Botox,” jokes Eisenhart, the designers managed to work around the original bones of the kitchen to create an area that feels both contemporary—thanks to sleek gold hardware and marble countertops—and cozy, flowing together with the dining and living rooms to create one large, inviting space. Next came the whimsy in the form of wallpaper, and lots of it: graphic accents that add unexpected pops throughout the condo, especially in the entry where the pair “wallpapered the ceiling with a subtle geometric paper, which felt daring and playful,” Conlan reveals.
Aside from the living room, which features a mix of diverse, conversation-starting decor—think a molecular chandelier, glamorous mirrored credenza and gallery wall showcasing the owner’s colorful art collection—the entry is the showstopper. The combination of a Kelly green door and a dramatic light fixture, not to mention the statement ceiling, “really create a wow moment when you walk in,” Eisenhart says. Indeed, the home is now a place to dwell in beauty—and to delight in living happily ever after. @wakeandloom
