Local Designers Transform Estate

A former Pratt estate at 145 Dosoris Lane is currently a showcase for the work of some local talent.  The “Home Is Where The Heart Is” designer showhouse is a benefit for the American Heart Association, and those interested in seeing the newly renovated and redecorated home of Lydia Pratt can visit the house from now through Dec. 1 and see firsthand just how skilled and creative our local designers are. 

 

Designer: Margreet Cevasco

 

Margreet Cevasco Design, based in Sea Cliff, has participated in many local showhouses, most recently Ronald McDonald House Project 2013. This was a permanent installation that included the renovation and design of multiple bedrooms and common areas. Margreet Cevasco, in collaboration with Vasi Ypsilantis Associates fully renovated the  kitchen and  communal dining room of the house. 

 

“We are dedicated to making our businesses work for the good of others,” says Cevasco. “Ronald McDonald families shelter in the facility while caring for sick children. This was an extraordinary way to give back through design. The

American Heart Association will benefit from the Glen Cove Showhouse. As charitable designers we get to display our talents for the benefit of these wonderful organizations.”

 

Cevasco took on the project of transforming the breakfast room in the showhouse, which she says “is a natural extension of the beautiful kitchen.” 

 

 “We were inspired to create an intimate, comfortable space that would be used for informal dining and gathering. The room has black lacquer cabinetry, bar sink, wine refrigerator and dishwasher for entertaining.  The graphic wall covering and upholstered chairs create an intimate feel.  We chose to use lamps on the dining table rather than a ceiling fixture to bring the lighting down and make the room feel more casual and less typical.  The intricate ceiling design repeats in the kitchen and breakfast room and adds architectural interest.”

 

Collaborating with Vasi Ypsilantis, Cevasco says they fully gutted and renovated the kitchen and breakfast room of the house. 

 

“The challenge was to make the rooms feel as if they could have been original to this magnificent home. We wanted to include classic elements that related to the original architecture, while making the space feel fresh and new. The cabinets and appliances are state of the art, yet the overall feel is in keeping with the traditional style of the home. We opened the space between the rooms, designed the ceiling detail, modified lighting, changed flooring and replaced all of the cabinetry and appliances, counter tops and back splash.  With the help of our incredible team of trades, vendors and staff, we were able to accomplish this full renovation within four weeks.”

 

Margreet Cevasco Design is a full service interior design firm located in Sea Cliff.  We specialize in high end residential and commercial projects throughout the tri-state area. Their work has been featured in many design publications. 

 

“Our vast experience allows us to work effectively in all areas of design--always with beautiful and functional results,” says Cevasco.
