Before / After Living Room - Interior designer in Bergen County NJ

Here is a fun post as I get to share a completed project including Before photos! I first met this Wyckoff client back in March when they needed help with paint colors for several rooms in their house and a living room transformation. They were keeping their existing leather sofa but everything else was going and they needed all new furniture, rug, drapes and art.

I absolutely love how it turned out - here is a shot of the finished space:


And here is the room BEFORE on the day I first met my clients:


Now for the details!!

Here is a close up of the mantle with two framed 18x24 prints:

And here is the other side of the room featuring a gallery wall and console table:


And one more shot - a wide angle of the space - if you scroll back up to the before photo you will notice the dining room wallpaper has been removed too.


Here is the concept board that I presented to my client with my ideas:


And here is the rendering of the space:

Bathroom design Bergen County NJ interior designer

I am so excited to share this fun powder room that I’ve been working on for my client who is at the end of a 5 month renovation / addition. I don’t have any “Before” photos since this was a brand new bathroom that didn’t exist before the renovation. But the “After” is still super exciting to me!

When I first started on this bathroom project I presented my client with two options - “fun” tile on the floor with more neutral walls. OR wallpaper on the wall with a more neutral tile on the floor. I had gone to the tile store and took photos of 3 examples of the tile that I had in mind and was thrilled when they went along with the fun tile idea. This tile has such pretty blues and pale greens in it so for the wall color I selected a very pale blue that perfectly compliments the blue in the tile. It is SUPER subtle and looks great against the white trim.

How cute is that light fixture over the mirror?! That was an etsy find! And I like how clean and modern the black and white selections look in the space.

How fun are these ties from Zia Tile? They sent me some samples that arrived earlier this week and I am in love with them! I think a fun floor tile is a good idea for a room like a powder room or mudroom or even a laundry room. And I love the grey hexagon tile for a bathroom or even kitchen backsplash. That gorgeous white tile would look beautiful anywhere - so timeless and classic!

Could you see yourself with any of these tiles in your home?

Master Bedroom interior designer in Bergen County NJ

I recently was hired by a new client needing help with several rooms in her new home. We decided to get started first on her master bedroom and I was so excited to see this space transformed. I presented her with a couple of different options and am curious to hear which one you prefer.

This one with the tone on tone grey night tables

Option 1

Option 1

or this one with the contrasting wooden night tables?

Option 2

Option 2

So you have a sense of where we are starting from, here is the current photo of the space. Everything in the room is going including the wallpaper:


My client picked the grey night tables so now we’ve made some tweaks. I decided to move the art to the side of the window (there will be a coordinating framed art on the other side of the window). As you can see in the photo, the ceiling height is a bit wonky where the bed is (only 89” from floor to molding) so since we are going with a larger headboard than what she currently has I think the art will make more of an impact on the side wall. They are each going to be 24 x 30 framed pieces! So now we are almost done with the room! I can’t wait to share photos when everything is here!! The bed and rug are backordered until the end of February so I will have to be patient and wait until March for the finished photos.


Do you have a room in your Northern New Jersey home that needs a transformation? I’d love to help you create your dream space, whether it’s a master bedroom, a nursery, a kitchen, dining room, or living room / family room.
