After visiting my client’s Brooklyn Heights apartment for the first time, I was shocked. Never before had I met a non-designer with such a wealth of knowledge about trade fabrics and resources. A young mother of two, she already had nearly everything picked out, but simply needed some assistance with the implementation. Essentially, I acted as a design contractor and recommended as well as supervised a roster of artisans (painters, upholsterers, wallpaper hangers, vintage furniture dealers) and helped source some key pieces (ottoman, dining chairs, a desk stool, sofa fabric).
Together we were able to bring the apartment together in remarkably little time and while the family was away I supervised the majority of the construction/installation. However, the credit for the eclectic and colorful space truly belongs to my client and her strong sense of style. It was her vision to work with bold palettes and patterns, I simply offered encouragement and practical solutions as needed.
