Martha Stewart Living's creative director Eric Pike creates a serene retreat with a single quiet color and clever, space-saving solutions.
Groupings of furniture provide for conversation spaces. Here, the settee, chest, and rounded-back chair are Swedish antiques (the chair is signed by Eric Svensson); Eric purchased the other chair at auction years ago and had it copied for the dining room. The tables are vintage pieces he painted himself.

With its coffered ceiling, which conceals support beams, this room lacks the height of the rest of the apartment; the skylight, however, opens up the space. A candle lantern hangs above the dining table. The symmetry of the almost-square room reflects the Jeffersonian influence. Eric sought a square pedestal table to complete this room; finding none, he designed one with architect Richard Perry.
An antique Swedish desk occupies a front corner of the bedroom; its many drawers keep mail out of sight. The desktop displays some of Eric's favorite possessions. The black-and-white photos throughout the apartment are part of a larger collection, but he prefers not to display them all so as not to crowd the space.
