Incredibly talented, Al is a superb decorator that I highly recommend. He transformed my New York City apartment from barren to a warm, inviting and elegant home, ensuring all details–the rugs, fabrics, blending of colors, furniture and more–reflected the persona we tried to capture. I was particularly impressed with his ability to interpret my taste in decor and unify it…borrowing the color palate from my artwork, Al made a series of selections that unified the apartment and made it appear larger. As regards the grittier details, Al called in his team of contractors to hang wallpaper, cut moldings, custom replaced kitchen countertops and coordinated everything with our building management. This saved us a lot of aggrevation which we appreciated. We are now working with Al on our Connecticut home and are excited to see his understated yet elegant selections for this weekend retreat. Most of all, Al is personable, fun to be with and attentive to detail….his sense of humor helps mitigate the more challenging moments of redoing your home.
