DESIGN TO LIVE will give you an unusual combination of amazing fresh modern design AND great building/management and details. Let me tell you the great experience I had with them: I hired Design To Live LLC shortly after SANDY (Oct 2012)- My 4 family home in Downtown Jersey City was badly damaged (6 figure damage) Design to Live had already done some minor work on the building a year earlier (painting and minor renovation) ), but this was a large job- I needed them to manage the project AND take care of many repairs, including handling city inspections. I decided while doing needed repairs I would also completely renovate the building and prepare it to SELL IT! Ryan James was amazing. He handled a HUGE Project here- completely rebuilding the basement apartment and the installation of all utilities (4 new furnaces/ 4 new water heaters and all new electric. But, the amazing thing was that although there was so much basic rebuilding to do- Ryan managed to re-design the basement apt and 1st floor duplex into an amazing, fresh new modern apt that sold instantly. It was fit for any Interior Design Magazine feature! He did custom cabinetry, re-did the wood floors and patched the damaged floors, and completely renovated bathrooms and kitchens to make it look as if I spent 3 times what I did! jaw dropping gorgeous Interior Design and craftsmanship He renovated with incredible style, including the facade of the building- and even did new landscaping, including built-in planters and new railings. I sold the building (actually I managed to sell the apts as 4 condos with Ryan's help managing the conversion of the 4 family into condos. The individual apts were so finely renovated that they sold as condos instantly and I made several $100,000 more this way- much more than all the renovations cost) In a word- Design to Live was a LIFESAVOR. But, more than that, Ryan managed to add such a fresh modern style to the apts for such little cost that I managed to sell for much more than I expected as prospective buyers fell in love with the apts instantly. Sandy could have been the worst experience of my life (and I know neighbors still scratching their heads trying to get out of the financial hole it caused) - but Ryan managed to turn it into a financial gain for me. He is a Great Interior Designer and Architect as well as a competent / knowledgeable and resourceful contractor. Try to find that in one package! If you are considering hiring Design to Live, I am happy to share photos of the work and discuss my positive experience with Design To Live anytime- My name is Robert 917-488-3230

Ryan's design for our kitchen has transformed our apartment, Now that we have had several months to live with our renovation, we are as happy with it as the day the project was completed last fall. Ryan has an excellent sense of space and he incorporated everything on our wish list. His renderings were spot on. Our kitchen turned out exactly like the photos he showed us at the beginning of the project. It was not an easy 4-plus months as is normal with a renovation, but everything turned out beautifully. Ryan has excellent taste and sense of color as well. We also renovated the bathroom and redid the floors and lighting in the living room. We are thrilled with the results.

My husband and I hired the company Ryan James worked for to design and build our kitchen on the second floor of our brownstone. Ryan oversaw the entire process from the removal of the old to the rebuilding and finishing of the new. Throughout the process he was thoroughly professional, courteous and cheerful. He was successful in making the process easier than any of the other extensive renovations we completed in our home.

Commented: Can you please tell me about the counter tops? Thanks!It's softer than granite but if you scratch it- you can easily hand sand it out. Once in a while it is a good idea to wipe it down with mineral oil- it looks incredible!
