Jared Sherman Epps Uses Black and White to Elegant Effect in a Manhasset, NY Home
In 2015, Jared Sherman Epps won a place in Interior Design‘s “Decade of Design” survey of the best projects and products of the preceding 10 years for a five-story townhouse boasting an unforgettable geode shower. Since then, he’s only grown bolder, as evidenced in this 5,000-square-foot house in Manhasset, New York.
“The design was for a young family,” Epps says of the Long Island residence, “so I wanted to keep it fresh and modern, but with traditional details and architectural elements throughout.” A blend of black architectural glazing and vast slabs of white marble was just the thing to accomplish this, with heather grey kitchen cabinets and wide plank floors in a custom gray splitting the difference.
To jazz up the classic palette, he installed a chevron of Calacatta Gold marble across both the floors and walls of the powder room, and deployed rich blues for upholstery. “We also matched the brass of plumbing fixtures, appliances, and lighting fixtures perfectly,” he notes, “with custom hardware and furniture finishes in a brighter brass, acting as accessories throughout the residence.” It’s the perfect finishing touch.
