Rustic elegance finds a home in this Connecticut escape

 When this young family relocated to the town of Ridgefield, they tasked JKC Designs with the job of overseeing and designing a full-home renovation.  Taking into consideration the client's classic but playful aesthetic, we refreshed the space with cheerful bright walls, white painted wood floors and fun tile in the master bathroom.

Chic design for a sophisticated uptown home

    When we were contacted by the owners of this stunning Manhattan apartment, we knew we had to create an elegant space that did the prestigious location justice. With simple modernity in mind, we created a custom look in a brand new construction, with details including an accent focal wallpapered entrance, custom curved cabinet in the kitchen for maximized storage, and gorgeous modern light fixtures throughout.

A classic home with modern touches.

This young family knew exactly what they were looking for when we first met: a formal living room that was more about family and less about being formal. As a family that loves to entertain, they needed a space that felt inviting to their guests and comfortable for daily life. We achieved this by integrating pops of pattern for an inviting fun vibe, and ample seating options for when guests come through.

Small Space, Big Design

At JKC Designs we understand that in NYC, every inch counts. Therefore, when we were tasked with this kitchen renovation and home redesign in the heart of New York's chic Upper East Side neighborhood, we knew we needed to exercise all of our space-saving techniques and incorporate plenty of stylish details to give our client a comfortable yet sophisticated living solution.  We opened up ceilings to create storage space above the refrigerator, and selected furniture which doubles as storage in all rooms. We also knew our glamorous client loves to entertain friends and family so we introduced host-friendly features such as a custom wine bar to elevate her entertainer game.

A California cool that inspires dreamin'

This client had a simple yet often hard-to-achieve vision for their San Diego home: vacation living on a full-time basis. They wanted the home to reflect the California coastal lifestyle, but also be inviting and comfortable for guests, as they have a love for entertaining and frequently host family for extended periods of time. To put it simply, they wanted the home to "feel like a resort."

JKC Designs designed and oversaw a complete renovation of this home, which included everything from determining flooring, paint, doors, knobs, and bathroom tiles, to carefully selecting window treatments, art, furniture & accessories.

Pops of color create a cheery and bright family atmosphere

 This client had a clear goal in mind from the start: to create a warm and welcoming space for their young growing family. We started with a neutral paint pallet and used fabrics and carpets with splashes of colors and textures throughout to add warmth without sacrificing elegance. The result is a bright yet clean and modern interior... a perfect space for a young family.

A trendy downtown loft gets a signature look.

This project all started with the client's request to design a little girls loft bed along with a magical space for her to play dress up. We ended up completely transforming the room with a built-in costume closet, outfitted with functioning draperies and stage lights.  Then we shifted our focus to the rest of the loft. Hermes scarves were transformed into throw pillows, and we customized a rose colored mirror with metallic painted brick from Coleman's custom etch design for the powder room. The final product was a unique, modern, and totally livable downtown loft, and was featured on the prestigious Tribeca Loft Tour and also HGTV Designer Tour.

Kid- friendly furniture for a headache-free home

Our client came to us with a request for a formal living room which could also play the role of the hub for the holidays, but with a caveat: it had to also be “useable”, meaning, durable enough for young kids to enjoy the space. We subbed out traditional silks and wools with kid-friendly, stain-resistant fabrics, and voila! - a beautiful and functional living space with zero spill concerns when the kids join the party.
