Sandeep Salter knows a thing or two about creative living. The daughter of a choreographer (Darshan Singh Bhuller) and a dancer, Sandeep grew up in London’s Primrose Hill before studying fine art at Parsons in New York. There she worked as an archivist and bibliographer, met husband Carson Salter, and ran a small bookshop out of the MIT Media Lab in Boston where Carson was studying. Back in NYC, Sandeep partnered with Sarah McNally, of McNally Jackson booksellers, to open Goods for the Study and Picture Room next door. Named after the Picture Room at Soane House in London, the gallery sells work of contemporary artists, rare prints, and framed ephemera. Last year, Sandeep moved Picture Room independently to Brooklyn Heights, blocks from the 800-square-foot apartment where she, Carson, and their two daughters live.
The small apartment, decorated with inherited antiques and evocative color, holds memories both past and future. “Thinking about how my children will experience their home has become a guiding principle. It’s the details that stick.” says Sandeep. “I think about how the girls run up and down the hallway, turn the small brass knobs on these huge black doors to enter into bright rooms filled with light and color. It’s a small apartment, but the thresholds are magical and charming.” Join us for a tour.
