One of my newest interior design projects was recently featured in Aspire HOME & DESIGN magazine. Follow THIS LINK to read the full story about this 2-bedroom 2-bathroom apartment located in Battery Park City, with a view of the Statue of Liberty. “Pied-à-flair” because 2nd homes provide an opportunity to be bold with design, in a manner that one might not be quite as inclined to, with their primary home.
Every step of the Interior Decorating process can involve a specialist.
I suggested that a client, with an American Modernism art collection, contemporize some of their frames. This led to meeting Suzanne Smeaton, a frame historian and consultant.
Her blog walks you through her fascinating process. I highly recommend reading it ... and not just because she mentions me :o) (Click on the word blog).
InsideWright's most recent project was a Manhattan pied-à-terre. I love designing 2nd homes!!
This was a new home that needed to accommodate some pre-existing furniture and accessories. (Pre-existing items: desk, desk chair, dining room rug, 2 dining chairs, accessories, bedset, bed linens.)
The goal was create an environment that welcomed my client's "country-eclectic" tastes, but also felt "Manhattan chic".
We worked together to find items that truly spoke to my clients, and fit the space just right. My biggest role was: finding great fabrics to reupholster chairs, cover a bespoke sofa, dress the windows and walls, and choosing the right paint colors. My custom workroom and contractor made this home come to life. The new furniture, lighting and accessories were found through a collective effort.
(A number of the decorative accessories have since been replaced.)

Tobi Wright of InsideWright LLC, and Tori Cohen of Tori the Organizer, gathered a crowd of curious home owners, realtors and design professionals, at Resource Furniture's fabulous showroom. We discussed how to successfully organize and design small spaces. A topic that is always relevant for urban dwellers.
