Luxury abounds in these well-designed Westchester spaces, which vary in style from classic and chic to marvelously modern.

Simply Symmetrical Bedford Corners

The Project
This kitchen was designed for a homeowner who wanted a unique yet neutral space. Symmetry played a crucial role in the design. “The client desired to have the cabinetry replicated to look like her paneled refrigerator. The refrigerator and the pantry look identical. This adds balance to the layout,” says Cera Kum. The pantry unit was customized into a workstation. To keep the space open and simple, tall and base cabinets were chosen. Despite it being a large kitchen, one finish was chosen to create a clean aesthetic.

The Goal
As the house is from the early 1900s, the intention was to “restore the kitchen and create a modern space without taking away the original beauty of the house,” says Kum. The team sought to harmonize the texture of materials used with the original design of the house, which is why the light, natural-oak wood finish was utilized throughout, she explains.

A Reimagined Look Rye

The Project
The focus was to execute a gut remodel to create multifunctional storage solutions in a continuous, serene space. Maya Nair sought to fashion a “modern, clean aesthetic with an inviting feel” for this not-so “stereotypical white kitchen.”

The Goal
“The existing kitchen and mudroom were two distinct spaces. The client’s needs and the architecture of the home made it apparent that the perfect design solution was to combine the two spaces. Connected to adjacent indoor and outdoor areas by the way of five doorways, the area had multiple focal points. [It was important] that each became a star regardless of which direction you approached the area from. The homeowners entertain frequently and wanted the new layout to accommodate counter seating, a buffet for serving hors d’oeuvres, a dining nook, an island with a sink, and new appliances throughout. They had a strong preference that the aesthetics of the space be modern, yet warm and welcoming, and wanted to go beyond a typical white color scheme. The multifunctional space required storage solutions for the pantry, kitchenware, wine, shoes, linen, sports gear, and coats,” says Nair.

A Pop of Color Mamaroneck

The Project
This kitchen was for a Brooklyn couple with three young children who needed room to grow. Though the original kitchen was new, it didn’t suit the family’s needs. The team sought to create adequate storage, without creating a cabinetry-heavy feel, and “give the kitchen some unique features that were not so typically ‘suburban home,’” says Sarah Robertson.

The Goal
“[The intention] was to create a large, family-friendly, eat-in kitchen with an expansive feel and great natural light, mixing in classic design details with some color and a more urban-chic vibe. [Additionally, we wanted] to create storage solutions that facilitated cooking, serving, and cleanup. The homeowner loves to cook and wanted to add a steam oven in the kitchen,” says Robertson.

A Timeless Retreat Scarsdale

The Project This primary bath was created for empty nesters who decided that instead of downsizing or moving, they wanted to update the home that they loved. The bath is cloaked in a white-and-gray color palette and features a freestanding tub and an oversized shower to invoke a serene space.

The Goal “Inspired to create a refuge from the stress of daily life, we strove to design a spa-like environment. The 14-foot ceilings created a challenge for us — how to keep things open and airy yet intimate. Using subtle layers of texture and lighting, combined with the ultra-soft ottoman, we were able to create the private oasis our clients desired,” says Billy Ceglia.

Project “This small primary bathroom had not been updated since the ’50s, and the homeowners felt it did not fit the updated feel of the rest of the home. While using our current footprint, we were able to create a serene spa-like room by using luxury finishes and accents. The bathroom floor was equipped with electric-heated floors and tiled with a creamy-white Luna marble tile. In the bath and shower area, we used Brizo shower bodies in a luxe gold finish, a BainUltra aromatherapy tub, and created a custom accent wall out of mother-of-pearl and Thassos marble to produce a truly one-of-a-kind room,” says Malka Helft.

The Goal The focus for this project was to build a master bathroom that was “light and bright and looked large and luxurious in a fairly small space,” says Helft. The team wanted “to create a serene retreat for the homeowners to relax in after a busy day,” she explains.
