Northern NJ interior designer

Today is a fun before and after reveal of this Wyckoff teen boy’s bedroom transformation. I loved this project because everything in the room was being removed so even though it was a very small room, it was a blank slate and that is always my favorite type of project. My client wanted a design that will grow with him (he is in middle school now) and he absolutely loves his new grown up space.

Here is the new dresser which I paired with this fun mirror. I wish I had a spot in my own house for this mirror. The new wall color really makes a difference too!


And here is the new bed, bedding and framed prints for this sports loving boy!


And the cute night table- love this lamp too!


Ready to see the BEFORE photo?! The new design has the bed along the wall where the dresser used to be so that he now faces the window when he wakes up. The dresser is now where the bed/loft used to be.


Here is the Concept Board that I presented to the client

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:

NJ Master Bedroom Interior Designer

I am so excited to share this master bedroom design project!  My client contacted me in May saying that she wanted to create a master bedroom retreat before baby #3 was born. We were on a major time crunch but everything fell into place!  Now mom and dad have a beautiful and relaxing space to go to at the end of the day raising three little ones. 

The first step in our process of working together was asking her to fill out my client questionnaire form. In it she said that her style was "Rustic/beachy/shabby chic" and that she liked "whites, creams, grays, blues, greens (mostly muted/blushes)."   Next I went to her home for a consultation where I was able to see what furniture and decor she needed and what was staying in the room as she already had a couple of dressers that remained.  We looked at inspiration photos, discussed budget and ideas and created a shopping list of items for me to source. 

Then the real fun began as I spent the next couple of weeks putting ideas together.  We met at Home Goods to shop together for the bedding and last Friday was installation day!  I brought my handyman and we put the new room together- hung the art, installed the new custom headboard, arranged the rug, hung the drapes and new rods and fluffed the pillows :)

Here are the photos that I took on installation day!


Here is the Concept Board presented to the client that includes the majority of the pieces that were ordered for the room:


And here is the BEFORE photo to see where we started!

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!
