The Galley Kitchen
To make the tiny hidden kitchen even sleeker, Lee replaced the original louvers with pocket doors.
Lee particularly likes the era of painting just before Abstract Expressionism. His collection includes works by Walter Stuemfig, Edwin Dickenson, Gray Foy, and Pavel Tchelitchev.
The Living Room
The dark color topped with crisp white was inspired by the British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, says Lee. The bookshelves hold only half of Lee’s design books; the rest are in storage.
The sofa is Charles X, a period of French furniture from the early nineteenth century. “The two chairs came upholstered this way,” says Lee. The mosaic table is Italian Neoclassical.
