 The design inspiration for this project was building a bridge between a classic traditional colonial in Chappaqua and today’s modern needs for a functional kitchen. We did a total kitchen renovation and reimagined the layout to accommodate a wall oven and island with a centrally located farm sink. The clients were entering retirement and were planning for the future, yet they wanted to keep in mind their big family and future grandchildren. She loves to cook and bake, and the kitchen was designed with that in mind.    The family are also Cape Cod lovers, and there is special nod to the beach, sun and sea. The teal painted island is balanced by the very pale grey of the cabinetry, and the glossy black pendants by Hudson Valley Lighting brought in a burst contemporary decor.
       
     
 This was a major renovation of an abandoned, derelict, and dilapidated building site into a charming destination hotel for wedding, events, and meals. The lead designer on the project was Rockwell Group, and we were hired to interpret Rockwell’s mood boards into reality with a focus on local artisans. The overall design inspiration was industrial chic and modern.  The client is a developer and contractor who undertook the entire project with his family to create a destination spot in the then up and coming town of Beacon, NY. Two of his children moved to the area to help run the business. They are a close knit, hard working, family with serious vision.      Local vendors:   Bar stools in the lounge by  Rexhill . Restaurant tables, bathroom doors by  Jessica Wickham .

 The design inspiration was of classic New York, American Modern, Art Deco, and a 1920’s-30’s influence with current touches. The apartment has a view of the Chrysler Building, which set the scene. This was our second project with the same clients. They love modern design and pay close attention to the little details that bring a space together. We renovated two bathrooms, furnished the entire apartment, and worked on custom built-ins and kitchen resurfacing.  We were able to create some interesting design elements. After stripping the mahogany doors of their years of paint, we then added smoked mirror and a gilded lattice detail which referenced a wrought iron gate on the street out front of the building. We used gold and silver hand printed wallpaper in the dining room to add some subtle luxury. The beautiful back painted coffee table by Philip and Kelvin LaVerne set the color palette for the whole apartment.      Local Vendors:  Hand blown lights in the dining room by  Malfatti  glass.

 We love working with families to create playful spaces with a sophisticated sensibility. We renovated two bathrooms, updated another, and transformed the basement into a fun and vibrant play space for this young and growing family. We channeled their love of color into wallpaper with bold patterns and a swirling marmoleum basement floor. Wood elements like a custom vanity and a vintage desk bring grounded materials into the designs.   Local Vendors:  Custom vanity, built-in basement cabinetry, coat racks by  Rexhill .
