One of five designers participating in the event, Deleon was tasked with reimagining the largest residence—a two-bedroom, three-bath townhouse with two 391-square-foot patios/balconies and two floors each spanning 1895 square feet. Deleon selected furnishings from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams to create a timeless, modern classic design that is in line with her signature style.

For this particular townhome, the designer opted for a relaxed, neutral palette in shades of grey to create cohesion. Furnishings and accessories from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams outfit the master bedroom, dining room, den, office, and living area where the Hunter sofa in a stunning Peridot shade adds a rich, vibrant appeal. Above the sofa, Deleon added an avant-garde artwork by multidisciplinary artist Porkchop. Free-flowing curtains from Evelin’s Creations add a soft, sensuous vibe in the living, dining, and master bedroom.

In the family/library room, Deleon added touches of beige and taupe to complement the greys and blend in with the ultra-comfortable yet modern Elroy chair. A Gibson reading table forms the perfect perch for a coffee or a cocktail while taking in the views. A strategically placed Filmore bookcase completes the look.

To add a bit of modern flair and formality in the dining room, Deleon installed the Perla Oval Chandelier in vintage brass and champagne crystal over the sculptural Addie round glass dining table. In the kitchen, Mackenzie-Childs’ Courtly Check Tea Kettle adds a fairy tale touch while marble accessories highlight the quartz countertops seen throughout. Most of the other eye-catching kitchen accessories are courtesy of Williams Sonoma.

Deleon took a more Hollywood glam approach to the bedrooms. Elegant Solange nightstands and a faux shagreen dresser play well with a dramatic tufted and winged headboard. Across the way, the office features dark blue hues and a rich walnut desk that can double as a vanity. A Thompson Ferrier candle adds the finishing touch.
