  6. I understand that you do these renovations for those people with wealth, but it just seems so unneeded in a place like this. I understand a pre-war renovation, or even a renovation from the 70s and 80s, as some of those designs can be pretty crazy, but this apartment already seemed modern before. The kitchen looked very modern, and the bathroom too. I know it just wasn't to the new owner's tastes and I can respect that, but part of me just cringes at the waste of it all. We could be happy with so much less in our country, we have so much space that we don't need. I do like your work though, Paula.

  7. The finishes on these renovations are top notch, I wish all contractors would give this much attention to detail. I have built and lived in four homes in my life, and when I expect nice finishing work the trades act like I'm asking for their first born.  My hat is off to you Paula.

  8. recently found your channel and I have to say I love your design and how you talk about the issues you had to deal with in the building and the board. That is very interesting. With this unit, I love the open kitchen design. Living in a (4) unit home in CT which cost about a 1/16th of what an NYC unit goes for, make you understand the reasons for the cost and the challenges you have to deal with to get the design you are looking for and the compromises along the way. Well done and do keep the videos coming.

  10. This woman is just charming and her design choices are both beautiful and innovative, especially when she has to deal with uncooperative CO-OP Boards in New York.

  19. You transformed and saved that wonderful bathroom. The vanity hardware is wonderful. The kitchen is the best I've seen that you've done. The lighting, glass cabinets, the gorgeous marble-looking slab, the flooring, just remarkabke. That lighting and marble is wonderful.

  20. This woman is worth EVERY PENNY.

  21. When I see prewar in the title, I think I'm going to see great transoms, awesome crown moulding, amazing wood features, and personality. However, all of these are cookie cutter, generic, and boring.

  22. I'm beginning to get hooked on these videos.

  37. Looking at the before pictures they spend lots of money on the previous reno….Some things in there were not too bad, buy yeah way too dark! Great work, Paula….Love your style. That apartment must have cost a pretty penny. Gorgeous!!

  38. I've watched a bunch of these. They're lovely, but they are starting to all look alike. Same colors, same radiator covers, same bathrooms, etc. I appreciate the effort of working around old structure issues which she seems to be very good at, but I bet I could walk into any of her make overs and immediately identify it as her work. Evidently that is what New Yorkers want.

  44. I am so enamored with these Pre-War restorations and am already thinking about my own dream apartment in an 1900's house in Berlin. I love your ideas Paula…:)
