Laws Of Style

A CLAYTON RESIDENCE TAKES SHAPE WITH THE HELP OF A VILLAGE

The Davis Place Tudor that a "clientladyfriend" and her husband asked me to help reimagine and design with them is turning out to be one stunner of a house! Typically, one may think of a Tudor as a dark and a characteristically cavernous architectural style, but when we're finished refining this stately c.1930s home with light and airy designing elements the former two-family will have an entirely new incarnation. 

The unique project in which converting a large 2-family home (with very interesting masonry work affectionately called "Drunk Brick" by tradesmen) into a larger single family residence was expertly planned and construction has been facilitated by Mehlman Brothers Development and Core10 Architects. Working with my clients to select and design all of the preliminary finish selections per the building schedule has transformed the spaces are now beginning to illustrate what the sleek and understatedly elegant interiors will look like! I do say that with care, a creative vision and a little more than a facelift, drunk brick has never looked more sober.

Channel Surfing

Loving every minute of helping two close friends design their home with a casual and sophisticated ease as our main objective, but also creating spaces that are mindfully detailed and are striking and unexpected. Much like their newly installed window treatments- fabricated out of Kelly Wearstler's "Channel" fabric for Lee Jofa- along an exterior wall that line a bank of french doors that open out to a fantastic logia. I also bathed a small entry vestibule in the same pattern wall covering as an unexpected and refreshing greeting to set the tone for the atmosphere. Stay tuned for more details as we make further progress on this project!
