‘The newlyweds danced to Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” sung by one of the groomsmen. “When Rob and I first met, he played it on the jukebox,” says Louisa of the choice. “We always laugh about that moment and felt that because we also met in New York, that it was our song!”‘

“Authentic. We wanted the house to have real materials – wood window and doors, marble countertops, and handmade items throughout. Our favorite element in the house is the artisan zellige tiles in our kitchen.
Hardworking. The finishes needed to be easy to clean; spaces need to be functional. We wanted what was utilitarian over what was trending. This helped when we decided about a powder room. Builders and house plans typically have a powder room, but this important quality we wanted in our house made us question the need. So, we took it out.
Warm. The house needed to be comfortable, open, and inviting. To offset the white and gray, we made sure to have warm elements of wood and a huge fireplace.
Intentional. Everything must have a place and purpose. When designing the kitchen, we created two rooms on each side for dish storage and pantry. It didn’t make sense to us to have the fridge separate from the rest of the pantry and having to open and close tons of cabinets for dishes.”
