Instagram Milestone for this Bergen County interior designer

Are you over on Instagram? This week I got my first 1,000 followers and I'd love to have you join me over there!

So excited to reach this little milestone in my first year in the interior design business so I thought it was a good time for an introduction post :) I’m Christie and I am married with 2 daughters and a 🐱. You already know I love decorating and design so I’m going to share something you probably don’t know about me. . .

My biggest love is traveling which started in high school. I got a brochure from a local travel agent and saved all of my waitressing money until I could afford a 12 day tour to Europe. My mom came with me as I was only 16 :). Since that trip I have explored nearly every country in Europe (even Cyprus!) and lived in France 3 different times (Strasbourg my junior year of college, Paris after college as a waitress and Nice for graduate school). Yes I have a masters degree in French literature!! .
Welcome and thank you so much for following me!! Tell me something about what you love!! .

Foyer Tile Inspiration - Northern NJ interior designer

I recently met with a client who is doing a massive renovation and addition on her Bergen County NJ home. We had a consultation to discuss ideas for the kitchen and how it relates to the other rooms on the first floor. One of the spaces included the foyer which will be tile instead of hardwood.  The rooms that are directly next to the foyer will be hardwood so it is important to select a tile that will coordinate well with the wood.  This meant not picking a tile that looks like wood as well as any tile that has the same brown tones as the wood.  I think grey slate like tile is a great option that is classic and neutral.  To make it a little more interesting I suggested laying it out in a herringbone pattern and doing light walls to really make the foyer light and airy. 

When I got home I pulled up some inspiration photos to show my client what I type of look I was envisioning and I can't wait to see her home transformed over the next few months!

Living Room Design Update in Westfield NJ

I had a client site visit this week to check on the progress of this beautiful sitting room and I can't wait until the window treatments and art are installed so that I can share the entire space!  So far we painted the space and selected this beautiful leaning mirror to really accentuate the tall ceilings in the room.  I paired this neutral and soft wool rug with a super cool and modern leather pouf / ottoman.  And they go perfectly with a slate blue sofa.  Stay tuned for the full room reveal soon!!
