A brand new house is a fresh opportunity to redesign a space—a blank room becomes your blank canvas. Elliman Insider teamed up with 1stDibs to rethink a spacious room in this beautiful Bronxville mansion. Below are some pieces 1stDibs recommends to instantly revitalize the space and maximize this room’s fullest potential.

1stDibs Design Tips:
Awash in white, this space is a blank slate, so the Amuneal pantry brings in warmth with its patinated bronze finish. The Tom Dixon lights are organic in shape and softly light the space—which works well with the overhead lights on or dimmed depending on the atmosphere one wants. The Simone Crestani glass pieces and the Jeremy Guy sculpture are meant to be styled on the shelves. The Crestani pieces pair well with the Tom Dixon lights and are also perfect for an elevated at-home bar since they are quite unique. I introduced the sculpture as another organic form and to make the space feel more intentional with art.
