Interior designers in NJ

We hope all of our loyal followers are off to a great start in the New Year! Everyone deserves an abundance of good cheer and company around the holidays.

We made a lot of great strides in 2018, but there is one that really stands out. We took a leap and put ourselves out there by advertising in The Scout Guide, a publication showcasing excellence in the community. It is an amazing feeling to be included in a network of local companies who share our passion and dedication.

Setting a Standard of Excellence

Entering into the limelight wouldn’t have been possible without a team of creative interior designers: Mary-Jo Mantz, Marjorie Warga, Meghan Dobish, Jennifer Karwan and Sandie Gershenfeld. These talented women have years of experience bringing the most unique and cutting-edge ideas to fruition.

Your master suite deserves the dreamiest look and should feel like you are stepping into your own personal retreat.

Our client couldn’t be happier with this major design transformation. The master bedroom, bathroom and walk in closet was completely gutted. New hardwood floors were installed, new furniture, window treatments, area rugs were selected and a built-in breakfast bar was installed. In the master bath there is steam, body sprays and rain head showers as well as a soaking tub surrounded by Monet Marble and radiant floor heat.

Our expert interior designer, Sandie, recently completed this gorgeous transitional home for her Stone Harbor client. Sandie drew inspirations from the sea and the beach. The homeowners requested a space that was described as “inviting, comfortable, light and airy” says Sandie. We started the process by choosing a driftwood stained hardwood floor color which anchored the room.  The natural beach color palette was carried throughout the home by the choice of paint colors, accessories and materials used for the furniture. Performance fabrics were selected on the sofas in the living room and family room. Colorful accent pillows added pops of color.  Now it’s time to host family and friends! View portfolio of this home and others... HERE

Today, kitchens have evolved to become the heart of the home.  They are now designed to be one of the hardest working rooms. Homeowners are renovating kitchens to become the focal point of the home. Open-floor plans and island units are common ingredients that make up this space. Our top design requests are spacious, light, practical and stylish, with space for cooking and entertaining.

Does this sound like something that has been stirring up in your space but you are not sure how to start? We understand and can help you through the entire design process! View more kitchen design inspirations HERE

 

Our design expert Jennifer took coastal haven to a new level in this room! Living by the sea can be translated in so many ways. We love the flow of this room from the custom designed sailor themed beds to the weathered- wood faux painted walls.   Can you see yourself designing a room like this? View More 

We love how our designer was able to transform space! Let’s talk about how to carry coral throughout a room seamlessly. So well done here because a story is being told in this room. When you want to express your personal style, go the custom fabric route, it will help you define your own space, not your neighbors! View Entire Gallery of Home

We love the fall season because it brings inspirations for change. Why not beautify our homes with the hues drawn from the most colorful time of the year. Reds, oranges and yellows may not be our everyday color choices but if we look around us they are gorgeous and can be incorporated into design. Not sure where to start? Our designers know best and are happy to provide you with a complimentary consultation before all the leaves have fallen.

We love to share new projects with you. Margie, our Lawrence- Mayer design expert, just completed this stunning NJ home! Grandiose rooms with high ceilings can be a design challenge. Scale is important in this space and Margie filled it with such elegance.

Out of all the rooms in the home, the kitchen is by far the most versatile space. It is simultaneously a workspace, an eating space, a gathering place and even a place for entertaining. With so many jobs to accomplish, finding a design for your kitchen that accommodates these necessities can be a challenge.

This is one of the major reasons that the open concept kitchen has gained in popularity over the years. Whether you’re an avid cook, a busy parent feeding a small army, or a gracious host opening your home to guests on a frequent basis, an open concept kitchen lends itself to each different scenario seamlessly.

This example shows just how beautiful and multifaceted an open concept kitchen design can be. Here our client entertains quite frequently. The open area leading into the living space of the home allows the space for a large seating area that can be used for formal or casual dining. This smaller nook is a space for smaller groups to eat and chat or to tuck away with a cup of coffee and a book.

Altogether, this open concept kitchen includes the cooking area, a dining table, a breakfast nook and a small table and chairs that all lead into the living space giving the kitchen an open yet inclusive feel to the rest of the home.

With the fast paced and hectic daily routine, it’s nice to be able to have a space within the home that allows for the utility for practical day to day necessities while also acting as a warm and welcoming gathering space to steal away those few precious moments either on your own or with your family and friends.

If you’ve considered updating your kitchen but don’t know where to begin, we’d be thrilled to work with you to create a space that you truly love. Please contact us any time. We’d love to hear from you! www.lmwinteriors.com

When it comes to deciding on a design scheme for the interior of a space in a home, there seems to be a common misconception that neutral colors will make the room feel flat, sterile, or even boring. However, when utilized carefully, neutrals and earth tones can bring out the inherent life in a space and even, in some cases, complement its natural surroundings.

Neutrals are our favorite way enhance a certain coziness in a space while also maintaining a clean and elegant feel. This coastal property features a wide spectrum of earth tones that range from light and understated to rich and warm. The perfect combination for a bedroom with a beautiful view of the coast. Where bright and bold colors could detract from its natural beauty, this simple color scheme frames the ocean view and makes it a stunning focal point.

As with any interior theme, there is always the risk of having too much of a good thing. While sticking to neutral colors can make a space feel fresh and minimalistic, incorporating different textures, patterns and statement pieces can give the space its own unique and memorable character.

Boldly patterned curtains frame the floor to ceiling windows and draw the eye to the coastal view. Ornately carved, dark wood furniture brings a depth that gives the room a luxurious feel. A textured area rug with a large pattern is a simple but effective addition to make the space cozier and spruce up the natural palette.

If you’ve considered updating your space but have struggled with where to start, we’d be thrilled to work with you to create a space that you truly love. Please contact us any time. We’d love to hear from you!
