Before & Afters

designer showhouse of nj

October 12, 2014

My goodness this was a fun challenge! Heres the deal: I had three weeks to create, cultivate, and complete my design for the ‘Ladies Lounge’ room in the 10,000 sq. ft. French manor in Saddle River selected for the Designer Showhouse of NJ (benefitting Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation).

The ‘before’ could not have been farther away from my style:



First things first, those drapes had to go. Simply removing them instantly helped! Time to get started on the design of the room…



Since time was limited, I sketched up my idea on the spot and got started…




I dove into choosing the perfect fabrics and paint…


Then me and my amazing crew got to work! They spent days removing wallpaper and prepping walls (which finally gave the room some life!)



While they were prepping and painting, I was out and about carefully selecting the perfect furniture, lighting, and accessories from my favorite stores in New Jersey and Manhattan. After 10 days here is our end result!!
