By working with me, you’ll create the enduring forever home you’ve worked so hard for. Cut through the clutter and overwhelm to make decorating fun – like it should be. The decisions you need to make for your home renovation and decorating projects are big-ticket decisions, and I understand this. I help you make them with confidence and to take action quickly.
For the project, my boyfriend and I were willing to invest up to $3,000 on new furnishings and art (about a fourth of that budget I anticipate to make back in selling furniture we’re replacing). Our small (but reasonably sizable, for New York City) apartment needed the most work in the living / dining room, which is open to the kitchen. We cook at home a decent amount, but never have enough people over for a formal dining space. We do have friends over frequently to hang, drink, and play games, so we wanted the room to feel light, bright, and easy for multiple people to maneuver around.
While we were flexible about furniture choices, we did have some pieces we wanted to keep, like the gray / wood armchair I dragged home through the streets of Brooklyn on my own in the middle of August. There was no way this thing’s going on Craigslist just yet.
Wherever you might be on your journey home, I can’t wait to show you the way, or even do the tough parts for you! Let me lead you straight to the classic, forever space you’ve been waiting for.
Naturally, there were some design challenges with the space itself. First, the apartment features steel floors, and we wanted a little bit of warmth to counter the industrial vibes. Second, we’re on the top floor, which has a sloped ceiling from the roof in the living room. Lastly, there is a brick feature wall that we cannot mount anything on, and it’s directly across from a west-facing window that could add glare to a TV.
You see, the way we live continues to change…. housing is not just about a roof over your head…. it’s about making a statement, it about lifestyle.
