Our Year in Review…and Looking Ahead
As we closed 2014, I am thankful for the Projects, Colleagues and Clients we have had this year. In the Design business you rely on fate and timing a lot and that informs your work and creativity.
In 2014, we delved into the Commercial end of Interior Design again with our Colombo Mobili Showroom design at 200 Lexington NYC, which opened in March. We also flexed our traditional design muscles, and incorporated a Contemporary edge to this Old World Family Company, the result was truly spectacular and the Client was thrilled at the freshness of their showroom.
I believe that versatility is important as a designer. I do not think we should always fit into this clearly defined niche. By going “outside the box” we can do some of our best work. Designing is my passion, and I am not fenced in to one type of Project or Client.
We also have an ongoing Project of a re-design of a Lobby in a beautiful Tribeca residential building. It has been a wonderful process and I am excited to see the end results in the New Year. These types of Projects are important for my design process, and along with Residential renovation and Interior Design, have fueled my passion for Client satisfaction, and functional and luxurious design utilizing high quality materials.
I also have a new Residential Design project, a breathtaking Long Island mansion for which I am designing the interiors, selecting furnishings and designing the lighting. It is a grand space and much attention to detail is needed. I look forward to the end result and wonderfully happy Clients.
In all of my Projects I strive to maintain my standard of excellence, listening to my Client’s needs and concerns and turning challenges into dreams.
As I boldly begin 2015, I look to more fantastic Projects and Clients, I look for diversity in my design and I look to always learn and move forward.
I would like to thank all my friends and colleagues who have shared their words of encouragement, support and kindness. With a wonderful network of trusted friends and colleagues, comes the development of new relationships and collaborations.
I wish all of you continued Success and Good Design now and always!!
