Masculine and Refined in New JerseyBefore & After
Our clients, two website developers who commute from New Jersey to New York, initially tasked Decor Aid with a backyard redesign. Along with their dog, Francis, they wanted a backyard space where they could relax after work, grow vegetables and host get-togethers on the weekend.
Wood walls and floors dominated the outdoor space, and so we sourced a metal fire pit, along with a canvas tarp. Some easy-maintanence outdoor furniture and metallic accents topped off the space, transforming it into New Jersey’s prime backyard.
Our clients had commissioned another interior design firm to renovate the interior, but when they saw what we did with the backyard, Ryan and Michael asked us to redo their entire apartment. Gut-renovating the kitchen and bathroom was at the top of their list, but they also asked us to fabricate a wood-paneled bar for the foyer, in addition to designing the bedroom and living room.
In creating a space that could seamlessly fit into their neighborhood, we crafted a space with wood details and rustic furnishings, which are offset by a high-contrast neutral scheme. To create a continuum throughout the space, we gave the bathroom a lighter wood flooring.
