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. This hallway chest was transformed into a piece of graffiti art complimenting the black and white striped mirror above.
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.
In this studio apartment, designer Stephen Fanuka's job was to turn the studio apartment into a beautiful master suite, and combine two spaces into one stunning apartment. This required demolishing part of the apartment, the library, to create a doorway into the new suite, but Fanuka's team replicated the old space's details in a smaller space. The master suite is truly luxurious with a master bath, shown here on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, featuring hand-painted wallpaper and a custom shower stall with Carrara marble tile.
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.
Million Dollar Contractor, Stephen Fanuka was brought in to restore this apartment to its prewar glory, and the crown jewel was to be an oak-paneled dining room. The Fanuka team selected individual quarter-sawn oak panels for the highly-figured grain pattern she desired. They also had custom solid wood moldings cut to replicate prewar details and even wood species. Even the staining of the wood was laborious, but in the end well worth it for the room is warm and honey-toned. Finally added was a vintage fireplace from an architectural salvage company.
With so much window space, the living room needed furniture to balance out the room. A free floating walnut steel stair case leads upstairs. The shades are lowered by motor and the windows are all made from lead free clear glass seen on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.
