MY SAVOIR FAIRE ... WITH WHAT YOU HAVE AND WHO YOU ARE.
''I bring order, efficiency, beauty and calm to your personal or professional space.
I have respect for what people have and for their way of living, through all the organizing process, step by step from design to hands-on implementation.''

Psychotherapy Office, Central Park West, New York, 2012
Restoring visual calm and structuring the space in separate specialized work spots (the sofa/analysis; the small children drawing and play table; the administrative desk) were the main challenges of this once upon a time charming and very small office situated in a prestigious, pre-war building on Central Park West.
The space had to be redone for toe to head: replace the carpet, scrap and repaint the walls. I refurnished it in a warm, cozy but professional look. I mixed antique pieces like an 100 year old turkish rug, a 60's maple wood coffee table, two Indian original miniatures, with contemporary and functional furniture which helps to gently erase the passage of other patients. I switched around the "patient corner" and the "therapist corner" to reinforce the comfort and privacy creating a safer buffer zone. Added curtains, rugs, art on the walls, decorative vases, plants and, many pillows for the confort of the adult as well as the for the children to play with became spatial treats for the eyes and, very importantly too, for the ears too: the office is situated next to a subway ground open grid generating regular waves of noise. I chose a many sources of diffuse and warm lighting versus a ceiling dazzle.
