For this new build, the primary goal for this wonderful couple was to create a home to enjoy every day, but also to accommodate frequent out of town guests.
The collaborative planning started during the architectural phase, and specific changes were made to the layout based on the homeowner’s dual needs. We added large doors to make the indoor/outdoor flow seamless, and by doing that, increased their entertaining spaces dramatically. We also made sure their guests would have sleeping and living spaces that provided enough privacy and room to get away.
Finally, we strategically used every square foot for storage that was possible. The result is so lovely because it meets their everyday needs (without feeling too large for the two of them) and has plenty of room for a house full of guests.
“It is my pleasure to recommend Molly Hirsch as an excellent interior designer. She was recommended to me over 10 years ago by a good friend and we have been working together ever since.
Originally Molly helped us update and refresh our home in Ridgefield, Connecticut. She did a great job of understanding our style and lifestyle needs. She took our projects from concept to completion seamlessly. The enhancements in Ridgefield turned out better than we imagined and we feel they improved the value of our home.
With Molly’s help, we recently built a new home in South Carolina. In spite of the project’s distance, our partnership was a success. She helped us identify our needs for this empty nester home and design a house to meet them. Her input in the architectural phase was invaluable. She made key changes that improved the home’s function and flow while maximizing space. With Molly’s design guidance we were able to merge South Carolina’s low country style with our more transitional taste. We are amazed at how this house went from a vision to our dream home. The result is beautiful! Our kitchen even won a local best kitchen award. We are delighted.
Recently, COVID 19 tested the limits of our new home. We always planned to accommodate our 2 daughters, their husbands, and future kids for visits and holidays. What we didn’t plan for was everyone leaving NYC and living with us for almost 4 months! We had 6 adults, a 1-year-old and 2 dogs! From people constantly in the kitchen to accommodating multiple work from home spaces, we were so happy with the house. Thanks to Molly’s vision and guidance it worked better than we could have imagined!
Molly is wonderful to work with, a great interior designer, and the person I go to for all design advice.”
