R5 Maisonette Opens in Hastings

Putting your house together shouldn’t be a daunting experience,” says Maria Churchill, who, with her husband Kevin McCarthy, owns maisonette, a delightful new home boutique in Hastings. Churchill, a Pratt Institute grad, says the best way to create a special space is to “surround yourself with things you love.” And there’s lots to love here. Standouts include a handsome hammered-metal coffee table ($950) and the one-of-a-kind pieces that Churchill unearths at estate sales and antique shops, like the pair of blue-and-white paisley upholstered lounge chairs ($2,200) and various python upholstered benches ($450). “People think there are all these rigid rules to decorating and there aren’t,” Churchill says. “If something speaks to you, it’s speaking to you for a reason—you’ll figure out where it goes later.” And, in case you need another opinion, Churchill offers design consultations. â–  maisonette, 578 Warburton Ave, Hastings-on-Hudson (914) 231-7454; maisonetteshoppe.com
