"She's British, brilliant, and beautiful...", Betty Wasserman gushes about her four-time client. While the 7,500-square-foot house was grand six stories, plus a basement, three terraces, and an elevator some of the rooms were ill-conceived. So Wasserman brought in architect Glenn Leitch, a frequent collaborator. "I clean up the architecture to give Betty a clean canvas", he explains.

In addition, Wasserman also collaborates with artisans and designers to produce the hand-crafted elements that have become a signature of her luxurious style of gracious flow and subdued tones.

In the living room-with its 30-foot ceiling welcoming, intimate lighting presented a real challenge... the solution: mood lighting from sculptor Helen Gifford's series of spiky Urchin Constellation pendant globes." — Interior Design
