what we do
Fina Design works in the New York metropolitan area including Connecticut and New Jersey with a concentration of clients from Westchester County, New York.
Barbara Fina, Allied ASID works one-on-one with clients to create environments that closely respond to their tastes and lifestyle. From the spare to the rare she brings a true love of all great design to the relationship whether modern or traditional. Her strength is in listening and translating your dreams into selections that work harmoniously into great rooms. Together we'll create the right mix.
She knows when less is more and when more is more. There are no pat design solutions. Everything will stem from your goals and preferences. Every space suggests different solutions. What makes each project exciting is that the design unfolds as a result of your unique space and needs.
She understands kids, dogs, collections and what it means to run a home. Everyone needs a quiet place to unwind. Everyone wants an inspired place to gather with those we love. Even a formal setting should offer comfort.
With an eye toward creating continuity throughout your project, each room should connect with the next. Since each room has a different purpose and architecture the continuity will never seem monotonous. Mixing modern pieces in with traditional selections gives the room a wonderful energy. A comfortable room does not need to be a predictable room. Her ease in addressing issues such as room flow, organization, light management, entertaining, comfort, scheduling and appropriate fabric and material selection make for a thorough approach that distinguishes a room full of furniture from a room that delights the eye and soul.
Value can be found in something you paid handsomely for but gives you pleasure for decades, or something that was selected knowing the range of what is available and then selecting the one that is perfect for your need and budget. By allowing her to get to know you, we'll make choices that are just right for you. She'll get on the same page with your project from the start. Midway through the process there may be a familiar laugh when you start to anticipate each other's next thought.
At every budget you'll find that Fina Design will provide immeasurable value. Barbara's experience and meticulous planning avoid costly missteps. By buying through trade resources we can save you money and provide a wealth of choices unavailable to the retail market. She's confident, yet methodical, careful to entertain whimsy when the opportunity arises. Rooms should unfold with delight, embracing their purpose but engaging your senses. From the practical to the sublime she'll find that perfect balance.
Projects range from the single room to an entire home. We'll start with getting to know your goals and family. We can coordinate with your architect or manage smaller renovations. We'll find the right approach for your project. We can suggest reliable craftsmen and tradesmen to execute your scheme and then work closely with them to assure the best results.
Any space can be beautiful.
