2018. Textile and print designer Rebecca Atwood is opened her first retail space and showroom in Nolita this Spring. Rebecca and I have been friends since attending RISD together and it's been great to help create a space for the next phase of her growing business. The store had a great open plan to work with, and I designed the millwork with the desire for the space to feel homey and inviting, while still having ample display and inventory storage. As an Interior Designer, I have a lot of experience using trade showrooms, and knew that the store had to also function as an inspiring showroom where designers can plan and work with their clients. I was excited to share a lot of my favorite local designers with Rebecca, so we that could bring in other creative elements with the lighting, furniture, and details.
Completed 2016. Top to bottom gut renovation of a 19th century wood frame house in Red Hook, Brooklyn. In collaboration with partner Chris Sheller, I designed and managed the construction of this two-story house. We had a hands-on approach to the renovation process, making custom mosaics and a rope handrails. Working with local artisans to create a troweled concrete bathroom wall, source reclaimed beams, and rebuild the brick fireplace was a great lesson how useful the industry of the surrounded neighborhood can be.
