Tamara Templeman

New Accounts – Interior Designer

Tamara is passionate about helping clients transform their homes into beautiful, healthy, highly-functional spaces that fulfill their needs and desires.

Tamara co-founded Houseplay Renovations while studying Interior Design at Parsons, the New School for Design. After completing her BFA, she took on a full-time role in the company, supporting the on-site work by responding to homeowners’ questions and concerns, managing schedules, and corresponding with local building departments.

She now offers design services that mesh beautifully with Houseplay’s superior remodeling work. She loves collaborating with northern New Jersey homeowners from the very beginning of their process, redesigning their spaces from the inside out.

Niall Templeman

Lead Project Manager

Niall founded Houseplay Renovations in 2007 after moving to the US from England, where he worked as a tradesman for many years. Niall’s ability to see the big picture and simultaneously manage the details is key to Houseplay’s success in a demanding industry.

As a general contractor based in northeastern New Jersey, Niall’s hands-on experience and knowledge of the construction trade informs his oversight work on a daily basis. He’s the first person that clients talk to or meet with to describe their vision for their space.

Here, Niall’s ability to listen, answer questions, and offer guidance continues the tradition of client-centered renovation experiences that sets Houseplay apart. His technical know-how and eye for aesthetic possibilities combine to catalyze successful renovations.

With Niall at the helm, Houseplay consistently challenges the negative contractor stereotype. In fact, potential clients often enjoy talking with Niall so much that they forget that he’s there to gather information on their projects!
