Kinnelon, NJ (PRWEB) September 25, 2008
When interior designer Tamara Dunner, ASID, IIDA, travels around the world, she does so with an eye toward the unique art and design that defines each destination. Dunner's international perspective enables her to bring unusual depth, appeal, sophistication, and vigor to her work, a blend of styles, colors and textures with timeless influences. Her talent for integrating global design and color elements is on display in the October/November issue of Design NJ magazine in a feature story on Dunner's transformation of a stunning mid-century ranch located in one of New Jersey's most exclusive communities.
"I am inspired by each locale that I visit," says Dunner. "Fine art, the primal design and bright colors of native art, the geometric designs of rural pottery, and other art forms all can enhance each other's beauty and create a one-of-a-kind interior space."
Tamara Dunner redesigned the living room, master bedroom, guest rooms, dining room and kitchen in the home. Her client had inherited a period Chinese screen that was to be the focal point of the living room design. Dunner integrated Asian-inspired gold, reds, greens and blues into the upholstery of the room's furniture. She added touches of outdoor colors on the walls and in the rug to coordinate with the scenic backdrop created by a wall of windows along one side of the room. Using a combination of the client's antique collectibles, international pieces, metal ornamentation, and contrasting woods, Dunner added warmth and texture, and fashioned a room with an elegant yet inviting look.
In the three bedrooms, Tamara Dunner redesigned layouts, selected paint colors and wallpaper, reupholstered all furniture, and brought in new rugs. She also created custom bedspreads for each of the beds, mixing and matching fabrics of vibrant colors and textures. "Color should be embraced rather than feared in home design," explains Dunner. "It brings happiness and interest to a room and to life."
"This project is a great showcase for us," says Renn Miller, publisher of Design NJ. "Tamara has created a home that reflects her inspired use of color and fabrics, as well as her international perspective on design. The project shows how homeowners can create the feel of a new home while enhancing their current space in this challenging real estate market."
