5 Things that I Love Now

5 Things that I Love Now

We all love to surround ourselves with the things we love best.  As a professional Interior designer in Bergen County, NJ, I am not usually asked about what I  like.  I am always designing for my clients and help them to select what THEY like.

I thought I would give you a short list of some of my favorite things that are available to you now.

#1. Colored lights in the Shower.

There’s an app for that now! By changing the color and intensity of the light, you can suit your mood and add to your health and wellness.  From spring green or sunny yellow to clear sky blue, each color has its own wavelength and so its own energy.

#2. Under counter refrigerator.

When this appliance came on the market, it opened up a whole new world. Want a cool refreshing drink in your bedroom at night?  No problem.  No need to go all the way downstairs to the kitchen.  We installed a refrigerator drawer right in the dresser!  To round out this convenience, we just added the coffee maker and now you never have to leave the room!

#3. Specialty Fireplaces.

Who doesn’t love the feeling of warmth and coziness that comes with a fireplace? With the newest gas fireplaces you don’t even need a chimney.  These are statement, artisan fireplaces.  Ready to curl up with a good read?

#4. Hyper-Organized Kitchens.

Creating the perfect kitchen requires a lot of question asking of the chef/s who are going to use that space.  I look at the design from the viewpoint of a cockpit with everything I need for a task being located at my fingertips.

Installing built-ins in drawers gives layers so there is no more reaching.  Having shelving and drawers that come out to you ends the climb into the back of the cabinet to find something.  You probably forgot you even had that utensil!

#5.   High-end toilets.


You will know exactly why this is on my list if you have ever experienced a high end toilet. The lid goes down when you are done.  The lid goes up when you approach.  It has a heated seat! For the environmentally conscious person, there is water saving flushing.  The toilet is illuminated so you can find it in the middle of the night.  You don’t have to flush…it is done for you.  It cleans and dries you off too!


There are so many other things that make such a huge difference in how you live. The list goes on and on.

Which item would you love to include in your home?  Why wait any longer?  Now is a great time to get started!
