Ogando Interiors was involved in the interior “de-construction” of this 10-year old home in charming Lambertville, NJ. While the client loved the community and ease of a new home, she was used to the character of a much older home and desired to add an established feel to the new space. By incorporating some of the clients' treasures from past homes with fresh pieces and new finishes, we created a look that is unique to this house and to its owner. New flooring, a stacked cut slate backsplash and new lighting for the kitchen gave the generic builder’s box much needed interest. Special attention was paid to the great room by adding brick faced walls, false beams, barn doors, and custom made cabinetry to the library. Unexpected design elements delight and surprise guests, while most importantly pleasing the homeowner.
