I chose green for the walls to blend with the wood of the large breakfront, contrasting the reds of the fabrics. The black of the piano and coffee table adds drama and individuality. Working around an air conditioner fixed on the wall didn't make my job easier, but this is my specialty, working with people who want to decorate without going through the roof on expenses. The large picture above draws the eye away from the air conditioner, as well as balancing it. Most of the artworkon the walls is by the lady of the house.      I was brought in for damage control, after the apartment had been renovated, to find a solution for this small addition. The ceiling had been made too low, there were no windows and it was far from any windows, so this tiny sitting room needed something to give the effect of light and space. This is a good example of why one should call in an interior designer before renovating.     The breakfront was moved out to a larger space where it would not dominate. I painted a cool aqua wash to give a sense of light and open space, heightening the walls with vertical gold stripes. The small elaborately framed painting just fits.    A round space off an upstairs hallway is put to use as a computer corner. I hung jean curtains to keep direct light from interfering with viewing the monitor. The desk I designed with an ergonomic curve and painted a cool gray, matching the simple metal chair on rollers. I chose neutral beige for the walls.     Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} A bright lively orange sets off the varied treasures accumulated by the owner of this apartment in Beit Shemesh. In this corner an antique kneading trough does service as a side table by the modern black leather and chrome couch. The fine ink drawing in a black mat and silver frame echoes the couch, the elaborate silver candlesticks repeat the eclectic statement of the room.    A plain white kitchen is countryfied with just a few simple touches. I put old fashioned metal handles on the cupboards and painted the walls a fresh light green. Ceramics, wicker and charming jars add color and style on the countertop and shelves.     A new kitchen needing a little something extra… Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I painted a delicate old rose wash on the walls and a stencil of a grapevine with blue grapes for contrast to the cherry wood cabinetry. I cut my own stencils, each an original.    I designed this succah inspired by the view of the sea off the small balcony of this Tel Aviv apartment, using cerulean blue, white and a sandy beige.

The succah panels I designed fit between the wall and the glass panels, giving a unity of surface where the subtle horizontal of the glass panels balances the repeated verticals of the succah panels and curtains.

I installed hooks at the sides of the "windows" to hold the curtains open when more light or air, or view, is desired.    Home Styling:Color SchemeOrganizationFurniture Arrangement Lighting ArrangementsDecoration I work mostly with middle-income home owners looking for a way to make their homes beautifully livable, well arranged and functional, without breaking the bank re-doing everything. My focus is on using what you have in your home to best effect and in the most practical way. You have your furnishings and objects which, for the most part, you want to keep. These are my inspiration. What you have collected in your home shows who you are; my goal is to make that shine. When it comes to home styling, or interior decorating, what counts is taste; good taste and sensitivity to your taste. These are my strengths, as well as a highly developed color sense, a talent for organization and spatial conceptualization. I am dedicated to sustainability and continue to develop my knowledge in the field of sustainable building. I am interested in recycling, using gray water, composting, and in using “green” products such furniture using reclaimed wood and parts. Energy conservation is very important in planning a home, finding ways to use less carbon fuels and more alternative energy sources, as well as insulation to reduce energy expenditure in heating and cooling. Using local products is an important part of conservation as well, avoiding imported products with a higher carbon footprint. I am always interested in discovering more ecological local products.       In one day we can organize your space for optimum practicality and aesthetics, using what you have presently.We also do complete decorating, including shopping for furniture and/or accessories, painting [including murals, stencils, and decorative effects], and design of units, etc.Wendy {Leah} Mesguichinterior decorating972-054 682 3760gingersnap7@gmail.com
