3 Designers Reveal the Home Decor Items Worth Splurging On

In partnership with New York School of Interior Design

Any savvy shopper knows that your space doesn’t have to be filled with expensive items to look expensive. However, there are some home decor categories where the splurge is well worth it. A nice design piece can set the look, feel, and tone of a room, adding substance and detail that you can both see and feel and improving your overall mood. But how do you know when to spend vs when to save?

To answer that, we turned to some of the sharpest design eyes we know: alumni from New York School of Interior Design (NYSID). Offering everything from traditional undergraduate and graduate degrees to professional certifications, NYSID is home to some of the brightest minds in the industry. We asked three graduates what design items they think are pricey, but worth the splurge — and what design items you

Terrace House by Aidlin Darling Design

In the hillside neighborhood of Castro Heights in San Francisco, a nondescript, midcentury terrace home has been transformed by Aidlin Darling Design into a three-story, multi-generational oasis crowned with a wild roof garden. “The existing home was dwarfed by its neighboring houses,” says architect Joshua Aidlin, cofounder of Aidlin Darling Design. “The final massing of the home thoughtfully fills in what had been the ‘missing tooth’ among the existing row of homes on the street.”

There is now continuous, stepped landscaping from one home to the next as the buildings and street rise up the hillside. 

The renovation not only accommodates the clients and their three young sons, but also two grandparents. With the addition of the third floor, the home boasts spectacular views over the city to the east and the iconic Sutro Tower to the west. “The design intent was to create a glass house that captured and

With amazing views of the area, Jamesville Colonial is great for large families

Jamesville, N.Y. — Sometimes life throws a person a curveball.

In 2012, Joe and Marlo Catroppa were looking for a new home for their family and seemed to have a place all picked out.

But then their agent asked them to look at a model home being built at 5840 Parapet Drive in the Crown Point development in Jamesville.

Marlo was excited about the open floor plan, but Joe was skeptical. He wanted to buy a ranch; this house was a Colonial.

But then he stepped into the master bedroom and looked out the large picture window there.

The view he said was “unbelievable,” and mentions that on a clear day he can see Oneida Lake, the lights of Nine Mile and fireworks from Sylvan Beach.

“Oh! I love it,” he remembered saying, and made an offer on the house, though it was unfinished.

“It was 100 percent

The majority of our historic buildings existed long before Edison had even thought about his lamp. Today, however, artificial lighting is indispensable both within these buildings and in the wider historic environment.

Any lighting design that affects historic buildings requires creative solutions to ensure that the scheme impacts positively and minimally on the historic environment, creating a visual scene that harmonises the lit appearance of architectural and landscape elements. One of the key challenges is balancing the existing architecture with the introduction of a modern lighting system. How the lighting will render the architecture, in terms of lighting effect and equipment, is central to the success of any scheme.

MINIMISING IMPACT

Lighting equipment should be in keeping with both the architectural scene and the surrounding landscape or townscape.

Interior Design Tips For Smaller Living Rooms

Living room in every home generally has the largest volume. The simple reason behind this is a living room is considered as a “gateway” to all other internal spaces. But in case of an apartment block in crowded city, scarcity of space is an issue resulting in compact architectural planning. This gives rise to apartments with bare minimum spaces.

Whatever be the case we can make minor changes to internal design and presentation to create a look and feel of a bigger living room.

There is one very important thumb rule when it comes to playing with internal spaces. The more light you will allow to enter a room, the more it will be perceived as a big room as far as volume is concerned. Also if you use brighter color shades that will help a uniform and smooth reflection of light equally in all the corners of the living
