Ridgewood area interior designer NJ

It’s been quiet over here because I took a 2 week vacation! Now we are home sweet home which feels great!! After living in close quarters on vacation it’s nice to have our kitchen to hang out in:

Coming home after a 2 week vacation and settling right back into our routine of cooking and hanging out in this space. It really is the heart of our home and where we spend the most time. I’ve had clients ask me during the kitchen design process if they should have a table if they have an island and for me the answer is always yes! If space allows then it’s great to have both and we use both of ours daily.

If you followed me on Instagram you know that we went to Seattle and Maui! While in Seattle we stayed in this adorable Tiny House:

It’s been quiet over here because we flew to Seattle last Thursday for a 4 night family vacation. We stayed in a #tinyhouse and loved it!! Here is the outside and swipe to see an inside shot plus some other homes in the beautiful Ravenna neighborhood. It was such a great experience for our family!! Now we are in Maui so I’ll share more photos soon :) #tinyhouses #tinyhouseblog #tinyhouseswoon #tinyhouseideas

For a few nights it was a great experience and I think it would be an awesome way to live as a couple or a single person. For 4 of us it was tight but a fun way to try it out! The girls slept in lofts and my husband and I were on the main floor in a really comfy queen size bed. There was a decent size kitchen and bathroom and a sofa too.

Maui was the highlight of our trip . Here are a few of the many photos that I shared on my https://www.instagram.com/christieadamsdesign/!

We landed at almost 1am and got home at 2am so we are totally jet lagged and out of wack today but happy to be home after this epic 2 week adventure. We fell in love with the beauty of Maui and had lots of family bonding.  I can’t wait to print out my photos and add some to our gallery wall in our mudroom. Here are some faves and if these aren’t enough I posted a bunch in my stories. Back to regular programming again tomorrow when I’m officially back at work!

I know this #maui photo will mess up my grid of pretty interior design pictures but I can’t not share where we’ve been spending the last few days. We have explored so much already and can’t wait to see more. This morning we saw turtles swimming right at our hotel beach. Yesterday on the road to Hana we went inside of caves, had a waterfall all to ourselves and saw incredible beaches. I promise to get back to posting pretty houses soon 😄

Celebrating our blondie who turns 11 today!! This photo from Maui perfectly captures the free spirit that she is. 
Always ready to have fun. Always up for a snuggle. Always happy to watch The Office. 
She is the extrovert in our family of introverts. 
She is the one who makes us laugh the most and still wants to hold our hands. 
Happy Birthday Thérèse Juliette !

Teen Bedroom Design - NJ interior designer

I loved working on this teen bedroom project. This was a complete transformation as you will see from the before photo further down the page. We started from scratch and I selected a new bed that offers storage drawers. This young man really loves baseball so I knew that he would be happy with the chosen art work above his bed! The plaid pillows and bedding are a nice contrast to the green walls. And I love the clean and modern lines of the night table and lamp.

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.
