This Redesign project came to fruition as a result of a prior staging job for my client Brigitte, who lived in Montville, NJ. Elite Staging and Redesign staged her home and it was under contract within the first two weeks of coming on the market. Brigitte was very happy with our staging services. She rented Elite’s inventory along with purchasing some some new furniture to stage her house and take with her when she moved.   Morris Essex Bergen County interior designer NJ Home Staging

Brigitte found a beautiful lakefront home and called us back to Redesign it from top to bottom.  By this time she’d become as much a friend as a client and our shopping trips were fun and productive.

The way our Redesign process works is first we discuss budget. Once we’ve established that I ask my clients about their tastes, show them different room styles, decor, furniture, accessories, fabrics, window treatments, ect. and narrow it down to their 3 favorite items. Then we go shopping directly to the stores, comparing products side-by-side and start making purchases.

During the initial consult I took photographs of all her spaces to have a frame of reference while finding just the right furnishings and accessories to give Brigitte a home she loved. She wanted a chic, contemporary look for her beautiful lakefront oasis.

Brigitte was wonderful to work with and has become a good friend. I look forward to visiting and spending time with her at her new home, watching a gorgeous sunset after spending a day on the lake. (Have I mentioned I love my job!)

While we wanted to give this space a coastal look, we weren’t going for “cottage” as seen in this before photo…

After: We brought in many different textures with pillows, a gorgeous shag area rug and accessories, also lending themselves to our coastal, yet chic look…

The white walls were stark and didn’t compliment the brick…

We pulled a paint color from the brick and added seashells, a vintage fishing rod and starfish to enhance the coastal theme…

We used Brigitte’s dinette from her prior home and it worked perfectly for the space…

Before there was a lot of wasted space in this very wide hallway…

We wanted to make use of this wide hallway, so we purchased a beautiful leather ottoman, added some great pillows

After: We made use of the space adding a beautiful leather bench, art Brigitte already owned and gorgeous pillows which tied in the blue accents from the living room…
