It's a designer's dream to be able to do anything we want...Often we're constrained by our clients' tastes and preferences, but sometimes... we have a chance to throw caution to the wind and make a grand personal statement! This is exactly what happened when I was chosen to design a table for the New York Design Center's Dining By Design exhibit March 20th - 24th in NYC. Since I basically live at the NYDC, I didn't have to think very hard about what I wanted to use in my design. And with an upcoming visit to London, I could scope out the Timorous Beasties showroom in person. It's a great honor to have been selected to design a table for DIFFA in conjunction with the New York Design Center. The Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids, Dining By Design annual event is held in conjunction with the Architectural Digest Home Design Show and is a unique event that showcases design luminaries in a feast for the senses. All proceeds from this four day event, which includes a Cocktails By Design preview party on March 20th, a Gala Dinner on March 24th and public viewing from March 21st through March 23rd, benefit DIFFA and their quest to fight HIV/AIDS. Since this is such a unique event it called for finding some extremely unique finishes and pieces to include in my 'Boy|Girl' design theme.

Big changes here at NYC Interior Design Firm Nirmada - we have a new name and are soon to have a new address. Nirmada Interior Architectural Design is now....KATI CURTIS DESIGN. Our new branding was designed by the incredibly talented Cooper House, and it couldn't be more perfect. Personally, I am having a hard time with the name change, but everyone else seems to think it's long overdue. Of course, we have to thank Strohl and Co., our PR Firm extraordinaire for the nudge. Apparently I am the brand - so the interior design firm has to have my name... Well, I might be the brand - but I certainly couldn't do it alone and I have to give a shout out of thanks to Carolyn, Ira, Walter, Todd, and Anne for their brilliance and support. It's a team effort. Other than the name, you can still expect the same professional, high end design services we've always provided. That will NEVER change! We will also be moving to new digs in May, so update your address books accordingly. If you haven't changed over to our new email, don't worry - everything will be forwarded thanks to the super-intelligent coding done by Tim Cooper at Cooper House. We'd love to hear your thoughts about our new brand and look! xo, KC
Over the past two weeks, we've been wrapping up the NYC West Village townhouse interior design and renovation we began last November.
As a lot of you will be heading "out east" to the Hamptons for what might be a long weekend, we'll be hard at work on wrapping up a Hamptons beach house design we began last October. The Client is scheduled to move in July 15th and the Contractor is working around the clock to make it happen. The project was a complete gut renovation of a 1920's ranch style home with a 1980's addition. We have brought it into the 21st Century for a young modern family. Here are some sneak peeks of our design: We removed the existing roof adding a roof deck with views of the bay and the ocean. A skylight brings more natural light into the interior. New Open Kitchen Design: Living and Dining Area: Family Room: Home Office: Baby's Room: Girls' Room: The push is on to have things ready when they're summer rental is up on July 15th!
Kitchen design and renovation in NYC can present a dizzying array of options for kitchen countertops. Here is a roundup of popular options, with pros and cons…
A homeowner will be exposed to gamma radiation from the granite. Inhalation of radioactive granite dust during installation is a far greater hazard.
Mistakes are costly, and the designer is the only one on the project team with the complete vision. Good planning is the only hedge against wasting money.
