Island Retreat (in Short Hills)


My Short Hills client wanted to transform the home office she and her husband shared into an office just for her plus a cozy family sunroom. Hand painted wallpaper and the addition of a tall, angled ceiling created the whimsical effect of an outdoor tent. I kept the window treatment very light with sheer linen, though there are shades hidden behind the valences for watching TV. The sofa can swallow up those in need a quick nap, and though the sofa color is light, the Suntella fabric ensures that it’s easy to keep clean. The whole room has the feel of an island retreat—very comfortable, airy and relaxed. To see more before and after projects, click here.
