After a decade in NYC and Brooklyn, Carla is now considered a longtime resident of SOMa 12 years and counting! She and her husband, Gary, and their three children are at home here.
From their center-hall colonial in South Orange to their current grand old Victorian known as the “Mayor of Maplewood,” she has managed numerous large-scale construction, decorating, and DIY projects. Each home she and her family have lived in has had a style all its own that she riffed on in part, to deeper her love of architectural tradition and style. Carla has an obsession with the homes around here. To her, their thoughtful craftsmanship tells a unique social history of the way people lived.
Today we restore and renovate these homes, carefully to protect their historical integrity while ushering in new interior style and functionality that accommodates modern tastes. Carla truly enjoys the challenge of looking past imperfections to envision a home’s true potential. Carla holds a BA from Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA, and an MA from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
