Contemporary Westchester Home

By

When our client’s family of four decided to move out of Manhattan, she reached out to Decor Aid, for assistance in furnishing and decorating the family’s new home in Westchester. Although she had already decorated a few upstairs rooms, our client needed help in sourcing and decorating the entire bottom floor of her house, and wanted the new home to feel reflective of her young family.

And finally, at the request of our client’s two young children, we had to incorporate primary colors, to fit the family’s fun and comfortable vibe.

We sourced a custom-made wood dining-room table, and a wood console from Candelabra, to bridge the gap between the house’s country-modern vibe and our client’s own personal aesthetic.

Modern home with Kitchen, Drop In Sink, Granite Counter, Dishwasher, White Cabinet, Medium Hardwood Floor, Ceiling Lighting, and Pendant Lighting. Our client wanted to furnish her home with a blue and grey color scheme, but didn’t want her new space to be stifled by this preference. To keep the home from feeling sterile, we incorporated heavily-textured accessories, fabrics, and rugs. And to contrast the modern with the familial, primary-colored art pieces were set against larger, neutral furnishings. Photo 4 of Contemporary Westchester HomeView Photos

Because of the home’s open floor plan, all of the rooms had to feel continuous, while being differentiated from each-other. So we added large area rugs, in the dining room, living room, and foyer, to distinguish each room.  Photo 6 of Contemporary Westchester HomeView Photos
