I’m Proud to be Featured in 1stdibs

I’m really happy to be included in this week’s 1stdibs blog, The Study. The blog featured 17 Small Smart Spaces which included not only a kitchen that I designed but also other small rooms by amazing designers like Cullman and Kravis, David Kleinberg, and Damon Liss. I love the challenge of making small spaces beautiful. I like to use a pared down palette, luxurious materials, and simple, clean lines when I design a small space. And, I really focus on the details. In the kitchen below that I designed for a New York-based fashion design student, the kitchen had to double up as a drafting studio. The table, lighting, and chairs are all inspired by an architect’s traditional drafting desk. The cabinets purposefully have no exposed hardware to keep a clutter-free look. The gray floating leather banquette and stone backsplash add great contrast.

I’m very pleased with the way the clean lines and bold contrast work to make this kitchen a success. Photo: Fran Parente


2. Wainscott, New York living room designed by Damon Liss.

I love how Damon made a custom upholstered tufted sofa that runs the length of this narrow space. And that beautiful pale lavender color is gorgeous. He made a smart choice to use two of the same coffee tables- one long table wouldn’t look as good in this space. Photo: William Abranowicz

Although I prefer a more modern aesthetic, I really like the use of the varnished metallic walls to add some shine to this narrow space. And who doesn’t like pairing snakeskin with an antique chair- even faux snakeskin. Photo: Eric Piasecki

This room has a detail I totally appreciate: linen clad walls with a grid of nailheads. This gives such a pretty, classic look. Photo: Pieter Estersohn
