With a storied imagination, a collector’s passion and an obsessive attention to detail, Howard Slatkin has created a one-of-a kind Fifth Avenue aerie in which every doorknob, tile and 19th-century silk lampshade was designed by him.
|The dining room was inspired by Raphael’s Loggia at the Vatican. The ceiling was painted by the artisan Alexander Solodukho. The slipcovers are from Chelsea Editions; the curtain embroidery is by Jean-François Lesage|
|Slatkin refers to the narrow living room as the “bowling alley.” To compensate, he stained the dark parquet floors a pale gray to match the walls and open up the space. The curtain hardware is from P. E. Guerin.|

|In the guest bedroom, a 19th-century French painted iron table features a collection of porcelain fruit, and fabric flowers made by the artist Carmen Almon. The table and clock are from Christie’s.|
|The Louis XV writing table in the screening room features 18th-century Chinese porcelain and silver dishes from Russia.|
