Charming Seaside Cottage

Friday, 27 March, 2020

This project was so much fun to work on. The owner is a media executive who uses this as a weekend home. The aim was to make it fun and comfortable with easy entertaining as a criteria in the planning. The house is one of the original Jones Beach homes that was moved in the […]

The Greek Revival Project

Friday, 27 March, 2020

I started The Greek Revival Project in 2017 when my husband and I bought this new home for our family. It needed an update and I embarked on lightening and simplifying what was there already and renovating a few things. The bones were great, but it needed a lift. I am not posting the before […]

Beach House

Tuesday, 5 July, 2016

This project was a total ground up re-build.  The original house was badly damaged in Hurricane Sandy and the owner decided to start over and raise and rebuild the house completely.  The house has an open plan with the master bedroom and living area on the top floor and the remaining bedrooms and a kids […]

Designer Re-Do

Thursday, 2 April, 2015

I recently re-did a house for my most difficult client – ME! My husband and I decided that we wanted to brighten up our very English style home. Color-wise, we had what was very typical for that style; a lot of red, green and yellow. We didn’t want to change out our antique furniture but […]

Teen Bedroom

Wednesday, 9 October, 2013

When this teenage girl wanted to update the childhood room she grew up in, I knew I’d be able to completely transform the space for her. The only thing the client wanted to keep were the two colorful, ethnic-print pillows on her bed. We drew inspiration from the pillows to create a modern, lively bedroom […]

Vouliagmeni, Greece Vacation Home

Wednesday, 9 October, 2013

This summer home of a Greek family from New York hadn’t been updated since it was built in the mid-1970s. The bathrooms were outdated, unevenly sized and just didn’t fit the needs of any of the vacationers who stayed at this home. Together with Greek designer Harry Arvanitis, we created two equally sized, modern, functional […]

Backyard Paradise

Wednesday, 9 October, 2013

This home belongs to an elderly couple whose children and grandchildren visit on the weekends all summer long. The initial plan had been merely to update the home, but after Hurricane Sandy damaged the space, the couple decided to move forward with a full renovation. I collaborated with a landscape architect to redo and expand all […]

Manhasset Family Home

Wednesday, 9 October, 2013

After decorating this couple’s living room, they hired me to decorate their new, large family room and kitchen, which they added to the back of their house. This is an active family who entertains a lot, so it was important to give them an informal space that allowed them to use all the rooms no […]

Southampton Horse Farm

Wednesday, 9 October, 2013

After a retired couple inherited this horse farm, they were ready to make the interior their own. I helped them give the home a lighter feel while using the majority of the existing furniture. The first thing I did was replace heavy drapes with light woven wood blinds and bring in two custom sofas with […]

Master Bedroom & Bath

Wednesday, 9 October, 2013

When a couple told me they wanted their master bedroom and bathroom to be more functional and comfortable, I immediately knew we needed to brighten up the walls, floors and fabrics. From there, we added moulding to the walls and mixed in a few new pieces of furniture to give the space a fresh update […]
