The sleepy town of Grandview-on-Hudson is little more than a narrow strip of homes nestled deep in the Hudson Valley between the high hills of the Palisades and the Hudson River’s western bank. Walking down the footpath from River Road and entering the front door of this home feels much like stepping from a dock and boarding a ship. Upon entering, your eyes are met with huge bay windows filled from edge to edge with the deep blue of the river and the sky above, interrupted only by the sails and mast of the occasional passing ship and the thin green sliver of the distant shore, three miles to the east.
As unique as the location and house itself is the lovely family who had recently relocated there from Brooklyn. Clients with such an intimate knowledge and deep admiration of our work aren’t quite as rare as a blue moon, but they don’t cross our path every day. Many years of experience have taught us that when there’s a healthy dose of mutual trust and respect between everyone involved, anything is possible… so when they asked us to come on board as their design team, we jumped at the opportunity. With the knowledge that we had creative freedom & their complete trust, and that we were designing a home that would be cherished and filled with love and laughter for many years to come, we set off to create the perfect family home with a singular mission: to use rich finishes, lush furnishings, a heaping spoonful of personality and a lot of love to create an interior design plan that exemplified the beauty we saw in the homeowners and allowed them to finally feel at home.
