Caitlin in Queens

Caitlin in Queens is a project very close to our heart. As a personal friend and client, Caitlin purchased her first home and enlisted Joshua Ingraham to add his personal touch. One of our strengths is to transform smaller urban spaces into chic and functional living spaces. This COOP in Queens had not been updated since the 1950's. The dated apartment was complete with shocking blue carpet, purple walls with hand painted Jefferson Airplane-like borders and multicolor electrical tape acting as trim in the bathroom and kitchen. A true test to any designer. We renovated the majority of the apartment. The bathroom was outfitted in floor to ceiling Bisazza tile. The kitchen was transformed with rich and dark appointments. The idea in most small spaces is to use a mostly monochromatic dark color scheme in tricking the eye into seeing more space than there really is. We used black tinted auto glass as a backsplash in the kitchen providing a high gloss effect and doubling as a mirror to enlarge the space. The bright white grout coupled with the naturally dark colors of the slate tile provided a polished and clean feel.
