Eclectic Manhattan Townhouse

This couple had been living in this brownstone for years before calling me into help give it a transformation. Because they would be living there during the process, we tackled this home floor by floor. These photos are of the first phase of our project, the first floor, including the kitchen, dining room, and family room.

Inspired by the couple’s taste for the eclectic, I created an open, airy space with a well-traveled flavor. The interesting accents and finishes expressed their style—perfect for living their lives in the city with their teens.

The husband is a hobby chef, so we started with the kitchen. We gutted the space and reimagined every detail. I made it feel light, bright, and luxurious to accommodate his love of cooking. From there, we addressed the adjacent dining areas and redecorated other spaces to give the home a cohesive, refreshed feeling suitable for entertaining friends, family, and colleagues.


Our homes are a reflection of who we are…they also help us become who we want to be.

Place objects that inspire and uplift you in key locations throughout your home. Also...a little Feng Shui goes a long way!
