SUMMIT AVENUE | FORT WASHINGTON, PA
What happens when two designers, who have been working together for years, get to team up on a personal project? A dream collaboration between Jillian Moskovitz and Amy Cuker of Down2Earth Interior Design.
These photos feature the interior design of the Fort Washington home of our very own design consultant, Jillian. While very sure of her own aesthetic vision, Jillian brought in Amy to consult on some of the larger master planning pieces. We created space for a butler’s pantry, a laundry room, a bar, an expanded family room and a new home office, all on the first floor, and a new master suite on the second floor.
Custom casework is featured throughout, and we used many techniques that push the boundary of what built-ins can do. Case in point: the family room bookshelves hide a concealed door to the office. Think Scooby-doo! A laundry chute connects the window bench in the master bedroom to the laundry area below. Glass front cabinets in the butler’s pantry provide storage with style, and the drink station was custom tailored to the homeowner’s every need. Some of the casework is white, as in the family room and drink station, some is a stately grey, as in the pantry, and some is a handsome black and rustic wood, as in the home office, where it is paired with black grass cloth wallcovering.
Neutral colored walls and cabinets form a backdrop for poppy textiles and art and a bold dining room pendant light.
Whether it’s in the family room, the office, or the butler’s pantry, every shelf is perfectly staged, down to the centimeter.
Custom furniture design pushes the envelope as well: Jillian worked with a furniture maker to design a round dining room table that can fit 6 people every day and expand to seat 14.
