"A tile backsplash is almost always a focal point in my kitchens and clients are usually more willing to take a risk with tile than cabinetry. Details like these, especially in a kitchen, are important. I always say, the decorative finishes (tile, electrical, lighting, plumbing and hardware) are the jewelry in a room and it’s the jewelry that truly defines the space.." - Molly Singer Design

"I would say that most of my clients prefer a more traditional style and a smaller subset prefer more contemporary. I don’t necessarily stick with one look and feel for my designs, instead I prefer to gain a true understanding for what my they gravitate towards and deliver designs that reflect their individual homes and personalities. I personally prefer a more clean-lined, what I would call “fresh” traditional for my own homes and I always like to throw in a contemporary element or two. A juxtaposition of styles, no matter what they are, help to create depth and interest in a space."
