nterior designer Christopher Coleman and fashion designer Angel Sanchez see things in black and white — at least for the interiors of their South Beach duplex apartment.

“Angel likes Armani’s palette–black, white and gray–which is very soothing,” says Coleman, a designer known for bold use of ebullient color.

The apartment they designed breaks dramatically from the South Florida oasis dual traditions of Lily Pulitzer colors and white-on-white, explains Coleman.

The palette also anchors their largely monochromatic art and creates a stylish effect particularly suited to create a sense of relaxation during the evenings, when the pair are most often at home.

Ever resourceful, Coleman–who built his early career dumpster diving for finds he’d then refurbish and repurpose–drew from the couple’s existing possessions that were dispersed throughout various homes, their respective offices, storage lockers and The Christopher Coleman Collection, the men’s Hudson, New York, gallery.

Also unconventional were some materials. Coleman and Sanchez dressed windows in men’s shirting fabric and deployed Dekon on a kitchen island that doubles as dining table. All the black and white discipline, however, is tweaked by a Calderesque stabile downstairs and a red table upstairs.

Take a full home tour of the space, above.
