UPSTATE HOME INTERIOR DESIGN & RENOVATION

The great thing about this midcentury home in Hyde Park, New York, was its near-pristine 1950s condition when my husband and I purchased it in November 2016. It was also in dire need of a complete overhaul. Much of the home was out of date and not up to code, but the potential was clear. Nothing less than a full gut renovation was in order. The dramatic results can be seen in each room of the house. 

PARK SLOPE BROWNSTONE INTERIOR DESIGN

The owner of this historic Park Slope, Brooklyn Brownstone was a busy mom with two little girls – and a third baby on the way – when I first met with her. Although the brownstone had fantastic potential, she didn’t have the time to make design choices. She wasn’t even sure where to start. The result was a sea of brown leather bachelor sofas, even after living in their new brownstone for six months. She needed the help of an interior designer to create a home that worked well with the historic architecture, and for her growing family.

ART INSPIRED CHELSEA LOFT

The story of the design of this New York apartment in Chelsea begins as an empty-yish bachelor pad. The newly expanded apartment had a sparse, minimalist feel. Too minimalist for my client, who wanted a place that felt special, a place filled with objects that had personal meaning and purpose.
