Indigo, Metalic Pink, and Tiffany Blue, Oh My! Fringe has a new interior by Samantha Gore

    Fringe has just gone through a nice little re-do thanks to Interior Designer Extraordinaire Samantha Gore, and expert at giving a place a feeling of space.   
    I had first seen Samantha work her magic on my own apartment. Sometimes living arrangements need to change, either you are moving in with a loved one, having  a baby, or just trying to get organized. Immediately after finding out I was pregnant, I stared scoping Craig’s List for a bigger apartment... but the truth is I love my place.
    It suits me. I have the perfect commute,  my favorite restaurants are nearby, my laundry mat, playgrounds, you name it. I realized quickly that I didn’t want to move, but like all New Yorkers, how
was I going deal with the space issue? It just so happened that i was discussing my dilemma with my client, Samantha Gore and she agreed to come over and do a simple re-do of my place in order to give
it balance and a feeling of space.

    We hung out in the apartment for a few moments, while I chased my two year old around the
apartment. In two hours we discussed all of the possibilities of how to use my own furniture, instead of spending tons of money on new pieces. She decided which pieces one would want to see, and others that should be camouflaged. Samantha got hands-on right away, organizing  some of my storage spaces, moving our vintage salon chairs into a prominent place by the window... and voila!, the space was transformed. She left me with a list of a few other things to move and paint on my own with my husband. I can’t tell you how many people come in and say, “Wow, your apartment looks great. You look like you have so much more room.”
    I loved my new space so much that I called her in the first days of the new year, and asked her to
help me freshen up Fringe Salon. She reinvented our use of colors, added parlor style mirrors on the back walls, and streamlined our displays. The place looks  great, and feels more spacious. If you didn’t know how much of a difference a simple redo can make, just check out Samantha’s website:
  Thanks so much, Samantha, for all the great changes going into 2010.
