Interior Designer Delivers Chic-Treat To Space – But Not As We Know It 



Author: LLI

Staircases and powder rooms are invariably vital to any home, but how often do owners give them the creative vision they truly deserve? Two such spaces have been given the Lucinda Loya treatment. The result: a captivating art fest for the eyes. 

The interior designer and her team at Lucinda Loya Interiors usually design projects around the globe, including homes, private jets, hotels, yachts, hit TV shows, and commercial spaces. But their latest project was still of the utmost importance. 

Lucinda’s couture interiors, which transform spaces into immersive experiences where art, history, nature, and modern design seamlessly intersect, were given fresh appreciation when she was tasked to transform a Grand Staircase and Powder Room at a New York Upper East Side townhouse. 

The result is ‘Enchanted Roots’, a fusion of artistic flair and organic elegance that combine as part of a project at the annual Kips Bay New York Show House 2024. It also doubles as the nation’s most anticipated design event of the year. 

Design Showcase 

The Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club has been a beacon of interior design excellence for nearly half a century. Each year, it brings together renowned designers to transform a luxury Manhattan home into a stunning exhibition of fine furnishings, art, and technology. 

The house on 125 East 65th Street, designed in 1904 by Charles Platt, is a stunning example of the magnificent townhouses the city’s gentry called home in the early 20th century. This was home to several notable residents, such as publishing magnate Henry Luce. 

Lucinda and her team brought dramatic contradictions of texture, pattern, and color to this historical setting, cleverly paired with fine art, accessories, and antiques. Interweaving a poetic sense of character and individuality, a storied aesthetic is beautifully told. 

On the Grand Staircase, visitors witness a stunning “Ripped” rug from LLI’s upcoming 2025 collection with The Rug Company. The backdrop is adorned with custom wallpaper in collaboration with Flavor Paper, featuring a collage of 19th-century etchings that create a unified perspective. 

Boundless Sophistication 

Ascending the staircase, visitors are greeted by a tranquil waterfall, leading to the landing adorned with large-scale custom cornices and alpaca drapery crafted by The Shade Store using Sandra Jordan’s luxurious fabrics

The highly detailed design extends to the main powder room on the second floor dressed in Loya’s “Rift” wallpaper, a new design in collaboration with Flavor Paper, inspired by runway fashion and Lucinda’s vision of organic futurism. 

A custom-designed vanity by Cosentino pairs seamlessly with Kohler fixtures. Vaughan pendants, luxurious accessories, and custom monogrammed towels by E. Braun & Co. New York add a touch of refinement and sophistication.

Scott Eaton’s Perpetual Now! video art offers a delightful surprise, blending seamlessly with Melt Mirrors by Bower Studio and a unique rug installation by Stark Carpet. Innovative lighting is a hallmark of her design, evident in the Fiddlehead fixtures by Roll and Hill that mirror the delicate unfurling of fern leaves. 

The Grand Aperture by Allied Makers echoes the graceful passage of light and the sun’s shape, enhancing the space’s ambiance. Look closer and notice the detail in every custom piece, from the black piping on the bathroom vanity, alpaca drapery, and bench to the harmonious repetition of shapes and organic patterns on the rug, lighting, and art. 

Innovative Approach 

Lucinda commented: “Our design of the Grand Staircase and Powder Room celebrates the fusion of elegance and nature, providing an immersive experience that transports visitors into a realm of refined grandeur. We aimed to create spaces that tell stories while supporting the incredible mission of Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.” 

The vision for both spaces is indicative of Lucinda’s novel approach to elevating the ordinary into extraordinary masterpieces that continue to live in the memory. Her exceptional eye for detail and understated drama in subtle shades reflect her eclectic high-end style. 

As a leading figure in the interior design world, Lucinda’s electric vibrancy breathes life into multifaceted residential, hospitality, and commercial spaces. The results are soulful, couture interiors that, above all, stand the test of time and add value to properties. 

Flexible enough to complete start-to-finish new construction, home remodels, or unique spaces, she is currently applying her design prowess to several projects, including a villa in Cabo San Lucas, an expansive flat in the heart of NYC in Central Park Tower, and a home in the Hamptons. 

Lucinda is also a dedicated philanthropist and a champion for women’s empowerment. Her commitment to making a difference in the world is truly inspiring. She has contributed hands-on and advisory support and notable fundraising to numerous non-profit organizations ranging from child advocacy to education and the arts.
