When asked to redesign the Community Room at Temple Israel in Croton on Hudson, I quickly said yes! Having lived and worked in the area for over 16 years I wanted to give back to the community by giving them something beautiful to enjoy. The Temple has about 350 families in Westchester as members that will all enjoy this new multi-use space.  VIEW ALL PHOTOS

The original room was wall to wall wood paneling and old window treatments stuck in the 60’s. There were several unused closets and sagging bookshelves on almost every wall. After careful planning and approvals from the Temple board of directors, we designed a beautiful room plan. The space will now be used for educational movies with the new projection system, social gatherings such as religious discussions and book clubs, to social coffee/food gatherings with the aid of a new Galley Kitchen.

The furniture was specified to easily be moved around the room as needed since each item is lightweight, and the rounded chairs have casters. The kitchen cabinetry was designed to work with the beauty of the wood grain seen in the wall at the end of the room, yet not visually compete. The kitchen cabinetry was imported from Portugal and its finish is actually man-made to look like wood, and is very durable.

The color palette and textures were chosen for their timeless style and to seamlessly transition with the decor in other parts of the beautiful Temple structure. VIEW ALL PHOTOS

The common element throughout is good design. There’s always a reason why an element is chosen for a certain place, whether it’s a colorful painting in a room or a specific fabric on a chair. There’s also a functionality to every item that is unique to each project’s solution. It’s sort of like an oversized jigsaw puzzle with a place and reason for each piece.

“Your rooms are like a painting. Each component is a brushstroke to create the whole picture. It’s magic every time!”
