Before and After fixer upper kitchen NJ designer

Thanks to Facebook Memories, I was reminded that it has been exactly one year since demo started on our kitchen renovation.  So I had to dig up a couple of before photos to illustrated where we started and where we ended with our project!  It's pretty amazing to think that the bottom photos became our current dream kitchen.  It took 2 years of planning and then 5 months of construction but it was all worth it in the end!

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.

Dining Room Design- NJ interior Designer in Wyckoff

Today I am sharing a little sneak peek of a dining room wainscotting and painting project that has been going on this past week.  I am obsessed with how it came out and can't wait to finish the room and photograph it to share. It's amazing how just some paint and woodworking details can completely change a room. 


I was inspired by the wainscotting in this photo and so this is what I showed my amazing carpenter. He did a wonderful job creating it for the dining room exactly how I envisioned it:
