Home Renovations with C.R. Interior Designs

Caitlin Rutkay of C.R. Interior Designs, a renowned #HipNJ interior designer with over a decade of experience, knows how to find her way around a renovation. Take this advice from Architectural Digest should you be looking to break ground on your own this spring!

Bruce Irving, a realtor and home renovation consultant, tells Architectural Digest how you should seriously consider hiring both an architect and an interior designer at the starting line. “The two disciplines are separate, with separate training and knowledge stores, and since I believe strongly in the wisdom of investing in good design, I think you should have both involved, and preferably from the get-go,” he says. More help needn’t even be pricier, and could even be cheaper in the long term. “Having both from the start doesn’t mean you’ll be paying for both the whole time,” Bruce notes. “It will mean that the new space will be generated holistically rather than serially.”

Tyler Wisler on Interior Design

Tyler Wisler, New Jersey interior designer, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss making a space “speak” to his clients.

Wisler’s first job was at a small boutique design firm in New York City. There, he learned that so much of design is how you work with people. “We’re like a therapist trying to figure out how to navigate a space and make it a signature of that person,” he says.

He states that some clients know exactly what they want, but others love bringing on someone with a visionary mind. “We love those clients,” Wisler says. He always tries to incorporate a person’s personality into their space.

Amanda Amato on Interior Design

Amanda Amato, Interior Designer of AMA Designs and Interiors, LLC, sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to discuss her unique approach to designing for each customer.

“I believe that your home should reflect your personality,” Amato says. When she does designs, they are the projection of the person she is working with.

“If a person is playful, I can tell that we can put some pattern and color into their space. If a person is calm, subdued colors would work better in their space,” she says. “I really pull from the vibe of the person.”
