We’re looking at this circa 2012 project with fresh eyes due to a fire in our client’s home this summer. (Most importantly, thankfully everyone was safe!) While we all still loved the first iteration, it’s exciting to build upon it 6 years later. Most items sustained enough damage that they had to be tossed, some were salvaged and a few pieces are being remade exactly how they were, but we’re introducing a lot of new elements also. It’s been fun digging deeper into this 2nd round and today we present our new concepts to the client. 📷 @jacobsnavely
Research is a big part of the design process. While working on a current residential project that was actually the first school house in its town way back in time, it was very important to us to pay homage to its history while we maximized living space and embraced the family's modern day lifestyle. While researching finishes and ideas for what the space should feel like, we happened across this image in @atlantahomesmag (huge fans of this publication!) and wanted our design to capture this essence...serene but strong, rough hewn yet graceful. Tomorrow we present our ideas...wish us luck!

As designers we know that a room isn't complete without art, though it hasn't always been easy convincing our clients of the same. Over the years, we have begun to include art as part of the very early design conversations in building a space and its helped tremendously. Art, investment...non investment...a child's best effort at drawing a family pet...whatever it may be, becomes a piece of the puzzle needed to complete a room. Today we are meeting with our clients and starting @lilacgallerynyc on the hunt for a few pieces of art for their new home. Wish us luck! (Design and styling by @toledogeller , 📸 @jacobsnavely )

We multi-purpose’d this dining room for a family who always used it for homework, art projects and puzzles - we asked them to embrace that lifestyle instead of making a very formal dining space and they listened! Also, that cabinetry sheen 🌟 💫 ⭐️ swipe for more befores and afters. And, also, this project is featured in the current issue of @201magazine! #diningroomdecor #transformationtuesday 📷 @jacobsnavely
Sometimes we have a love/hate relationship with social media but when we get to meet talent we may never have otherwise met if not for social media, we are grateful. We are so excited to be meeting with the incomparable @deborahcerboneassociates tomorrow, who's feed we came upon probably a year ago. Also based in the garden state but creating thoughtful, perfectly executed landscape designs everywhere her equestrian clients request her, Deborah is definitely someone you want on your renovation team. 🐎🌱🌳 #equinedesign #equestrianhome #horsecountry
Just in case no one told you...decorative painting is always a good idea. An art form since forever, we are amazed at how much it can transform a space or object...sometimes even more so than wallpaper. Here, @heatherjozakstudios applied a watercolor meets faux bois effect in a great shade of @farrowandball blue for us in a sauna room. Check out our stories above 👆 to see what we are having her do to some kitchen cabinets on a current project

While researching different staircase designs for a current project, we came across this image of @marcjacobs home and we really loved how instead of a conventional newel post that touches the floor, in this case, the stringer turns into this graceful cylindrical shape where a thin post terminates. Any of my designer friends with us on that! Unrelated, how many spouses out there can relate to the art on the wall I know ours are raising their hands 👋👋.

Working on a proposal today for clients that are looking to blow out their kitchen and modernize their way of living while not losing the essence of their classic home...meaning no McMansion-ness, which we couldn't be happier about. Scrolling through our feed, we came across this inspirational kitchen by @rhatiganandhick and thought what if...💭
