Hide or Show off your TV? NJ interior designer in Wyckoff

To hide the TV or not? What do you prefer?

We have two TV’s in our house and have both of them “hidden”. This TV I had my awesome carpenter build bi-fold barn doors. I love how they coordinate with the built-ins and when they are closed we can enjoy our fireplace and gorgeous reclaimed wood mantle. This type of door is ideal to install when you are doing new construction or an addition since you can plan ahead with the cut out and hide all of your electronics easily within the frame. We have a DVD player and cablebox with remotes inside so they are all hidden behind the doors.

Kitchen with a navy island - Bergen County kitchen designer

Yesterday I checked in on a kitchen project that I’ve been working on in Ramsey. The newly painted navy island looks amazing with the new pendants and stools! I love the combination of the brown stools (with such fun detailing) against the navy. The previous island was wood and when combined with the wood floors and the wood table and chairs it was a lot of brown wood. Painting it navy made such a HUGE difference. And allowed us to bring in the super cool brown stools now that there is a contrast.

I selected the pendants to replace the old ones because I love how open they are and the black coordinates with the legs on the stools.

We are just waiting on one more item to come in for the open shelving that I styled and a new rug for under the kitchen table……then I can post a full reveal!!

Here is the BEFORE photo - my client already had a beautiful new kitchen but needed help with the finishing touches. So I found new lighting (pendants as well as a light fixture over the table). island stools, shelf styling, a wall clock, new fabric for seat cushions and banquette, rug for under the table. and new island color.

Little Boy Nursery Design - Bergen County NJ decorator

Today I want to share a little more about the process of working together on a space. I’m sharing an AFTER photo of a nursery that I designed for a client renovating their house. It’s always so fun to see the finished product and I want to share how we got to the finish line in this adorable space. I love this customized wall art and how it pairs with the dark navy dresser - these are pieces that will stay in the room for many years as they don’t scream “baby!!”. The rug is super soft and a perfect neutral tone. It was fun adding the star stickers to the wall to add a little whimsy to the space.

How did we get here? Let’s start with the concept board that I presented to my client.

The next step after presenting the concept board was showing my client a rendering of the room to better visualize what the end result would look like.

And now the room is done and ready to enjoy :) More photos to come soon!
