Contemporary Craftsman on the Water
CONTEMPORARY CRAFTSMAN ON THE WATER A young family swore they’d never leave New York City after Rumson interior designers Kati Curtis Design renovated their New York City apartment. Until…a few years and two children later. Where…on the Jersey shore they found their dream home. And….once again, called Kati Curtis Design. KCD quickly mobilized. In only 9 months, the tired and dreary 1990’s Arts and Crafts home was resurrected into a remarkable and revitalized tour de force. With sensitivity to the architecture of the home, KCD seamlessly mixed the family’s contemporary lifestyle with classic details: dark wood floors were lightened, as was the outdated dark woodwork. Furniture choices supported all-season living, and coming from Manhattan, open space was a paramount importance (of course!). KCD’s design allows for large family gatherings and parties on the main floor, while a playroom on the 2nd floor gives the children a wide-open play space all their own. Leaving Manhattan for a home on a private beach, with unobstructed views of the Navesink River, was (fairly) easy; KCD’s design, which captured the spirit of this family in this beautiful home, made it possible.
