Jessica’s project #1

Posted on Thu, 10 Feb 2011 by KiM

Jessica wrote us regarding 2 of her interior design projects. She works for a large design firm in LA (but is hoping to go out on her own), is a fellow blogger, and has an Etsy shop. She is quite talented, as you can see by this redo of her former home – a 600 sq. ft. co-op in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. They put alot of hard work into this place and the result is amazing (I love the blue trimmed windows)!

Some before photos:

And AFTER!!!

Stay tuned later for another of Jessica’s projects!

Wow, that's awesome! I love how the mirror in the kitchen makes it look so huge, ha!

PD says:

LOL @ Tom…… taking no prisoners there Tom.

@Jess…. 🙂 it takes guts and confidence to share your work with the world – well done. Now bring on the big budget LA show stopper…your stage awaits!

Absolutely gorgeous. Lovely blog btw.

Wow, civility anyone?

Jessica, I'm saving the living room photo for future reference. It's just perfect. I can't believe that's 600 sq. ft.! Great job.

Nice job! The mirrors make your kitchen look HUGE!

Brava, Jessica! You truly have transformed a typically "cozy" NYC space into a spacious oasis! The living room windows look enormous, and is that really the same kitchen and bath? I live in a 600 sq foot condo in Manhattan, so I'm taking note of all your storage ideas. I love the built-ins in the living room and the shelving behind the bed – such a great use of space! btw, kitty is definitely the crowning touch.

I love the "pop" of red in the living room on #2. It looks so warm and inviting and comfortable as well as chic. And #1 is an incredible redo–from blah city box to a room that looks much larger than it is. Great addition of built-in shelves around the front windows.

Christina says:

That is truly the best use of a mirrored wall I have ever seen. Bravo.

Ashley says:

Eek, some of these responses are kind of harsh; I personally LOVE what was done and agree that the transformation is amazing! The amount of light that seems to just ooze in in the redo makes no sense but is still somehow there!

Just because you're a professional designer doesn't mean that you have an unlimited budget. Sometimes there are things that you just have to work with — budget, taste preferences, electric/plumbing, building regulations, etc. You can't always go all out on everything.

Again, GREAT space ^.^

Whew! You left the bathtub tile in! Its really beautiful tile, so glad you didn't take that out. 🙂
