Springtime Decor at ARO
Spring is here, bringing with it fresh breezes, warm sunlight, and that yearly urge to give your living room a makeover. This year, with many of us sheltering in place, our homes have taken on additional importance, giving new urgency to our decor goals while making us appreciate any time spent outdoors.
Residents of the Midtown West luxury apartments at ARO have ample outdoor access, but filling their homes with the perfect furniture presents additional challenges this spring. Fortunately, the worlds of online retail and design are filling the gap, using cutting-edge digital modeling and customization to reproduce the in-person experience via a tablet screen.
But how can you decide which home office setup or throw pillow is right for you without the knowing eye of a designer to guide you? One option is to bring your apartment into the digital space with a program like Modsy, which creates a detailed 3D model of your space that can then be filled with furniture to give you a sense of what those items would look like in your rooms. Modsy employs designers to work with customers in their digital space and then recreate it in their actual home, all without ever stepping into their building!
Residents who know what they want in a sofa should head to online retailers like AllModern and Restoration Hardware, where customers can choose between a range of timeless collections, each featuring a variety of highly customizable furniture, case goods, furnishings, and more. Whether you’re looking for a rich leather sectional sofa, a stylish reclaimed wood coffee table, or a shearling footstool, these brands have you covered.
When the time comes to furnish your kitchen, head over to Sur La Table’s online store, and peruse their selection of stylish and useful cookware. Order a new set of colorful Le Creuset stoneware to complement your new dining table or upgrade your coffee grinder to a top-of-the-line De’Longhi to breathe new life into your kitchen.
This year, giving your decor a little freshening up has an extra level of urgency, so make sure to take full advantage of the tools and websites listed above to beautify your ARO residence with items that make it feel even more comfortable and special.

Laurence Towers: A Jewel in Murray Hill__ Read article
Laurence Towers: A Jewel in Murray Hill
Like Murray Hill itself, Laurence Towers has undergone a few transformations over the years, and the latest round of renovations has made the building one of the finest in its neighborhood. Rising 32 stories, this white brick residential tower is nestled in the center of the Murray Hill/Kips Bay area, providing residents with spectacular views as well as easy access to the 6 subway and much more.
The residences themselves are some of the best no-fee rentals on the market in NYC. Ranging in size from one to three bedrooms, these luxury homes feature spacious layouts with an abundance of closet space and stainless-steel appliances, including dishwashers, a rare treat in Manhattan. Along with admitting ample natural light, the windows reveal skyline views of the Empire State Building and East River, with Long Island City and Greenpoint beyond. Select homes, including all the two- and three-bedroom residences, feature private terraces.
Residents love the suite of amenities. The building software system keeps them connected, notifying them when a package has arrived and allows them to make service requests from the resident superintendent with the tap of a finger. The 24-hour doorman will assist residents in coordinating a valet pick-up/drop-off laundry service, guest access, and more. Many residents of Laurence Towers have cited the doorman as one of their favorite amenities and being greeted by a friendly face as you enter and exit is a long-standing New York City tradition for a good reason. Laurence Towers also features a state-of-the-art fitness center*, allowing residents to keep up their workout routine without leaving the building.
Once a well-heeled neighborhood, Murray Hill began to draw in university students in the late 1990s, and it’s now home to a wide range of New Yorkers who bring taste and culture to this small corner of the island, while easy subway access and walkability bring the rest of NYC within striking distance. The building is just a few blocks from the Tisch and NYU hospitals on the East River, as well as entertainment options, including the Kips Bay 15-movie theater and green areas like the East River Esplanade.
