A (Semi) Fixer-Upper in Stuyvesant Heights

Great Rooms A visual diary by Design Editor Wendy Goodman. The Living Room: Garcia-Lavin decided on four major paint colors for the entirety of the house, and here in the living room he used Benjamin Moore’s Inkwell on one wall.

Anglers suited in chest waders emerge from their rooms while the morning air is still cool and the sun is starting to inch over the surrounding hills. After a quick stop at the reception office for a hot cup of coffee, it’s off to their favorite fly-fishing spots on the Beaverkill River, which runs right behind the red-and-white building, or to Junction Pool, just south of the mid-century roadside motel, where,...
