Full-Service Interior Design for a private residence in Summit, Union County, New Jersey.

“This was not the first time Kapner (Creative Wallcoverings & Interiors) had worked on the Tudor home, which was originally designed in 1908 by architect Francis George Hasselman of New York City. Her biggest challenge was that her clients’ active family wasn’t taking advantage of the large spaces on the first floor because they were so uninviting, so Olde English heavy. They asked Kapner to make those spaces, in their words, “relaxed as well as elegant.” If this sounds like a contradiction in terms, it is. Casual is casual and elegant is elegant, but that’s why you hire a really good designer – to make both these things happen at once.”
