Each interior is unique. However, there are some tried-and-true techniques that can help to improve the overall look and feel of any space. Marni Sugerman is a designer at Decorating Den Interiors. This network includes individual-owned and operated interior design franchises across the U.S. There are some common threads to her projects, which range from Westchester family homes and Westchester empty-nester condos to Boca Raton warm weather escapes.
Sugerman explained that layering textures is a key technique in my designs. This was shared by Sugerman during a recent tour of a New Rochelle project. The video shows Sugerman pairing woven grasscloth wallpaper and a French gray credenza with velvet upholstery and silver nailheads in the living room. It creates a warm, sophisticated space.
Another trick that works is: Customized treatments can make windows stand out. New Rochelle’s home has a wall of windows that overlook the Long Island Sound. She chose motorized solar shades to make it easy for her to adjust the light level or show the view. To enhance the high ceilings, she also added elegant draperies to the ceiling and floor. To complement the other materials in the room, the embroidered fabric adds an additional layer of texture. It is made with gray, gold and blue colors.
