Catskill Weekender - Interior Design

$ On Inquiry

Locally Sourced

This is a new build by an Upstate developerin which we were given cart blanche on all finishes and appliances. Because this is our client’s weekend home, they chose open shelves to display local pottery. We love this aesthetic and the support of our local makers. We maintained the budget by utilizing Ikea cabinets with Semi Handmade fronts and added a touch of whimsy with a picket-edged backsplash. The island is crowned with a large pendant.

We wanted to include ample seating for visitors and cozy nights by the fireplace. To do so, we designed a slatted screen in the same color as the kitchen cabinets. Embracing the outdoors and large windows, we selected and designed low furniture. The palette is both colorful and neutral with soft green and camel tones. We commissioned local Hudson Valley furnishings from Phaedo and Kieran Kinsella.

The custom living room screen extends the living room wall while also separating and delineating the dining room. The screen also created a nook to place a custom buffet table that can be used as a desk when working from home. This room is anchored with a statement chandelier and oversized fiber art from Mexico.

Weekend homes are great for unwinding and calming the mind; therefore, we kept the primary bedroom minimal, bright, and added pleasant elements to not overburden the mind. The bathroom has a soft palette with textural cottage-style tiles and contemporary fixtures. Both artworks are from local artists from the western Catskills and Woodstock.

I think every designer loves to design kids’ rooms. There is whimsy allowed, and we can bring out our child-like selves. In this room we brought sky blue to the ceiling and transformed a bed into a little child sized house. Birds on cages surround gold dipped pendants. Playful lines and patterned drapes complement a fun marbled triangle pillow from local maker Christin Ripley.

The second bathroom is neutral with textural tiles and contrasting black and walnut. This room is timeless and will suit the homeowners for years to come.

Meet the Creator
Wescover creator since 2020

A native of Brazil, Miami-raised, long time resident of Brooklyn and now resident of Hudson Valley, NY, Ana Claudia is just as eclectic and diverse as her background.

Upon graduating from Florida International University with a Liberal Arts Degree focused in Architecture, Ana Claudia worked in architecture for about a decade only to realize she loved working in interior design. For 5 years she worked at Ligne Roset as an interior designer where she honed her skills not just in design but also became a better listener and developed strong customer service. While at Ligne Roset Ana Claudia also started her design company first as a jewelry company known as ACD Jewelry and soon after she decided to solely focus on interiors and never regretted a moment since.

A couple years working as an interior designer, Ana Claudia met her husband through a long time friend and sister of her husband Aaron Smyle. Aaron's and Ana Claudia's personalities not only connected but they also connected because they are both small business owners who are passionate about their careers. Soon after they moved in together…

“We moved into our ‘dream apartment’ in Brooklyn. I was content in the city and considered myself a New Yorker. My husband is an owner and accountant for Smyle & Associates, and I had my interior design company in the city.”

Yet less than 6 months after moving in, the couple took a weekend trip to Beacon. They fell in love with Upstate New York, and a new adventure had begun.

“Before we knew it, we had a realtor on speed dial and we’re looking for houses.” Soon after making an offer, Ana Claudia and her husband became the proud owners of a pristine condition midcentury modern home. Hello full gut renovation!

“By the time the extensive renovations were complete, we couldn’t wait to move in and live in the Hudson Valley full time.”

Today the interior designer is making a name for herself with projects in Hudson Valley New York, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey.
