Have you been thinking about doing your kitchen, but aren’t sure where to start? Does the idea of renovating or (GASP!) selling/ buying make you want to curl up with a glass of wine and forget the thought even entered your mind?
Have any of the following questions ever crossed your mind? I love my street, but don’t love my house- where do I begin? At what point should I consult an architect? A designer? I have little kids, is it even a good time to take on a project? What rooms actually matter for resale? Are we putting too much money into this house? Should we just move? Do we even want to move right now (I’ve heard the market is just terrible.)? I found a house I love. I would totally move for it. Is it good value? Is it worth listing our house for?

Lynde Easterlin enjoys creating casually elegant homes that are warm, comfortable, and have a seamless blend of traditional and modern style. She began her design career in New York working under the tutelage of John Rosselli, specializing in antiques and decorative works of art. She then honed her aesthetic as a lead designer for Charlotte Moss on projects in Aspen, Vail, New York, and the Hamptons. After nearly a decade of designing in New York, Lynde opened her own firm with recent projects taking place in New York, The Hamptons, and Connecticut. Lynde’s rich southern heritage stemming from her native Georgia, combined with over a decade of urban New York experience, gives her a fresh perspective that both respects tradition and embraces new ideas.
