Stephen's Renovations

Apartment of the Century

Not many NYC apartments have 20 foot ceilings, so the design took advantage of the height and beaux arts details in the living room of this 100-year old apartment. The existing columns were all refinished, and the walls were treated with Venetian plaster, creating a look that's both classic and modern. Motorized shades were installed, and on the balcony, the original railing was replaced with star fire glass. This has the visual effect of opening the space even more, and allowing the natural light to flow into the foyer and hallway featured on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

A Corner Office

How do you turn one long open space into a mufti-divided room? Stephen's crew worked hard to turn this loft space into a separately defined office space for work as seen on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

Accessible Library

Stephen wanted a timeless rolling ladder installed as the centerpiece of the room to allow the homeowner easy access to any book they desire seen on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

A Large Country Kitchen

What used to be the master bath and home office is now an open, repurposed country-style kitchen with a wood-topped center island made from mahogany and new flooring as seen on Million Dollar Contractor.

Entertainment Room

The perfect change of pace. As seen on on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, this contemporary room maintains high end while making your guests feel like they can still get comfortable. One seat chairs and a couch are the perfect way to gather around the TV.

Sunlight Bedroom

In this episode of DIY's Million Dollar Contractor the renovation converted the entire space into one residential loft with a large living space. This picture features the master bedroom featuring its large windows to maximize sunlight, elegant crystal chandeliers and bold artwork.

Marilyn and the Foyer

As featured on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, the foyer features blue savoy slabs, mahogany doorways and entresols of high gloss finish. The staircase has been fitted with a new banister in high gloss finished wood to match the doors and entresols and new balusters. A large photograph of Marilyn Monroe graces the foyer wall.

Jigsaw Marble Bath

The master bath features marble tile with mother of pearl insets, and a curved vanity built by Stephen Fanuka, which maximizes the available space while complementing the pre-war style of the apartment on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

Benches and Chairs Dining Room

DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, hosted by "Contractor to the Stars" Stephen Fanuka, gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the most amazing spaces and construction of Manhattan's high-end luxury homes, like this dining area with a dining room table, a long bench and two backless chairs just off the living room. The goal was to maximize the use of space in the apartment, and not an inch is wasted.

Carpeted Seating Area

DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, hosted by "Contractor to the Stars" Stephen Fanuka, put an interesting twist to this upstairs hallway seating area. He combined a tufted alcove seat with carpeted walls in the same tone of blue. Storage was provided underneath the seating area.
