So much has happened in the life of the Oscar winning director and script writer Oliver Stone: war in Vietnam, three wives, three kids, job as a teacher of English, fight for the religious rights of Scientology.
Used to the strict abidance of film release dates, Oliver expected the same approach to work from his architect. Deadline was set and Geoffrey hardly managed to meet it. "Many customers have no idea what they want and the process drags on. Oliver explained the task at once and he got exactly what he expected" - Geoffrey says.
The work on interior decoration was happening while Oliver Stone was filming "Wall Street: Money never sleeps" - a sequel to the famous film of 1987. Being a New Yorker Oliver has always loved Wall Street - the small street in the lower part of Manhattan leading from Broadway to the East River coast.
In his own apartment he wanted to replicate the interior of a luxurious yacht - one of those that cruise in The East River. Along the windows of the living room of open space plan Bradfield put deep comfortable sofas and chairs. The director wanted to have an opportunity to admire the views of the river for hours from any part of his apartment. The living room was decorated with soffit lights and different accessories with naval symbols. At Oliver Stone's request a huge dining table that is easily transformed into an office desk was put here.
A convenient desk is a living essential in the house of a workaholic like Oliver. Mahogany floors resemble a deck. As background shades Bradfield chose neutral fair gray colors. The designer used Oliver's favorite colors - blue and red - accentually.
Oliver's bedroom turned out emphatically manly: walls are covered with shagreen, furniture is upholstered with dark gray chamois, the room is decorated with a painting by George Condo and an expressive sculpture - a red dinosaur created by the Chinese artist Sui Jianguo.
The cinema tycoon's apartment is filled with posters of his movies, awards, bronze Japanese vases of the 19th century, modern artists' paintings, numerous mirrors and other attributes of glory, luxury and narcissism.
