218 E Hartsdale Ave, Hartsdale
OUT-OF-THE-WAY SOURCE: If you love restored industrial vintage furniture, Get Back, Inc., in Oakville, Connecticut, is a must-visit.
FAVORITE ANTIQUES STORE: The Yellow Monkey in Cross River has a good variety of furniture and accessories. You need to go often and catch new items as they arrive.
EVERY HOME SHOULD HAVE: A houseplant.
COOLEST DESIGN ELEMENT USED IN A CLIENT’S HOUSE: An indoor pond with a beautiful fountain. What tranquility it brings just listening to the water splashing while having a glass of wine after a long, tiring day.
BIGGEST DESIGN INFLUENCE: Vicente Wolf. I worshipped him as a high-school student. I have learned more from him than from anyone else.
HOT TREND FOR 2013: Anything green, literally and metaphorically.
WORST DESIGN MISTAKE: Letting a client hire a cheap contractor, who eventually made his money back through change orders. Ouch!
FAVORITE PAINT: Benjamin Moore’s Color Stories Collection, and Farrow & Ball.
