“Although it hadn’t been touched much for two generations, it contained a lot of emotion.” So says interior designer Jeremiah Brent, of a Manhattan apartment that had been a Latino family’s home base for decades — the home of its beloved matriarch. ; the place for memorable gatherings, convivial dinners and celebrations of all kinds. Everyone knew the Park Avenue property needed a makeover when it recently passed into the hands of another generation, but, adds the New York-based talent, commissioning would be a challenge for everyone involved, both both personally and professionally. “It couldn’t lose any of its spirit, but it needed to bring light and more contemporary elements,” he explains. “The approach had to honor the client’s mother, who had lived there for so long, while placing her in the present, while leaving room for the future.
