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.”
Here are two images of a 2017 renovation designed and managed by C.R. Interior Designs, kitchen view during and after:
Back when you were a Garden State child, did you wish for your home to be a little less adult and more fun? Maybe you imagined inviting your friends over to play on your giant indoor slide. Perhaps you yearned for a park-like backyard you could run, play, lounge and swim. Then maybe you pictured retreating to your private, custom decorated bedroom to rest up for more playtime.
For one #HipNJ family, this can now be a reality in New Jersey’s most kid-friendly home!
At 79 Mrytle Avenue in Montclair, you will find a stunning custom colonial on almost an acre of land. This spectacular space features a floor to ceiling wine cooler, gas fireplace, gym, bedroom and yes, an indoor slide.
And that is just the basement!
Overall, the home has ten-foot ceilings, open floor plan, four fireplaces, and park-like backyard. The main level includes a grand two-story entry leading to living room and a gourmet eat-in kit with Carrera marble counters, walk-in pantry and much more. The house, built in 2011, boasts five bedrooms including a luxurious master suite with two walk-in closets!
Out back, the future homeowner will enjoy a blue stoned backyard patio, playground, 18-person in-ground hot tub and outdoor kitchen with gas firepit.
All of this could be yours for a cool $2,399,000!
