Built -in Love - Wyckoff NJ interior decorator

Just sharing a little glimpse of this family room built-in with custom barn-doors to cover the TV and reclaimed wood mantle. I love designing built-ins to look like they were always meant to exist in a space.


With these family room built ins- I had the carpenter do the same style shaker inset cabinets as in the adjoining kitchen and had them painted the same color as the island cabinets:

Bergen County interior designer "Things I Love!"

One of my favorite online stores is School House; I love their style especially their light fixtures and hardware.  They also have pretty awesome clocks too :)  Pretty much, if you know me and are looking for an idea for my birthday, a School House gift card would be pretty high up on my wish-list!!

Today I want to share a couple of my favorite things that I love about this amazing store.

1. This kitchen!!
I'm loving the open shelving and how it is styled in such a practical but still pretty way!  The pendant over the sink is adorable and the subway tile is perfection. And see, it's ok to mix metals too!

2. This Dining Room!

I'm obsessed with this rug! I may have to save up for it in my own dining room.  I love how it really anchors the room and goes so perfectly with the chairs. It's called the Cable Wool Rug - Gray Heather.  The pendant is so perfect and understated. I'd love to be invited for dinner in this dining room :)


If you find any treasures from School House, share them in the comments!!  They have the best eye candy and are provide lots of inspiration for my design projects!

Decorating your home with art! Northern NJ interior designer

How do you decide what to hang on the wall in your home?  This can be such a challenge for many people but I feel like art on the wall is what makes a house a home. I really like when I can select art that has meaning. For example, in my dining room I chose this vintage map of Paris because after college I had the opportunity to live and work in Paris and it has become my favorite city and my all around happy place :)  We have taken our daughters to Paris twice so far and they love it too so having the map in our home means a lot to our whole family and brings back memories of our time spent there.
