Project In Process: Shh! It’s a Surprise!

We’ve been working on a mystery project for a few months now. Can you guess what it is? Here are a few clues: We’ve never done this type of project before.  It’s not a home renovation. It’s not in Jersey City! {Even though JC is our current hub for renovation projects!} It’s a space where [...]

Project In Process: A Place To Rest My Eyes

Having a beautiful place to rest my eyes is essential to my happiness at home. And since I have three school-age kids, I’ve had to come up with some creative ways to carve out spaces that are free from clutter.

Project in Process: Coming Home

Project in Process: Love It or List It

Our clients were at an impasse. They had been renting out their Jersey City apartment, and they knew it needed some upgrades. When their tenants’ lease was up they had a choice to make: should they keep the apartment and rent it out again, keep it and move in, or sell it? Their wish-list of [...]

The Brownstone Swap: Project In Process

Our clients for this historic brownstone remodel in Jersey City did a little house swap. It all started when they bought a brownstone with the intention of remodeling.

A Personal Stamp on Your Space: Project in Process

From ancient times through the middle ages, a personal seal or stamp was used to authenticate documents and carry out decisions and orders. In modern life, a signature has replaced the personal stamp - but it still says, Yes. I agree to this. I’m choosing this. I’m consenting to this. Your signature is, in other [...]
