Dynamic Duo

Tina and Jared Rich are a renaissance couple and frequent collaborators. Jared, a doctor, and Tina, an interior designer, collaborate on furniture design that can be brought into Tina’s work. And the two are also proud parents to their puppy, Brody. Step into their New York City interior, and you are transported to a home that reflects this couple’s Florida roots, with design that is inspired by natural splendor and gives off definite beach vibes.

Floor to Ceiling

One of the major treats in Tina and Jared’s home is the loft-like setting. Walls that reach over 10 feet high allow for light to stream in. Skylights above the living area and kitchen are a big part of the sunny interior. It's perfect for a home where plants are in abundance.

A Stylish Entry

Tina and Jared have carved out a small entryway at the entrance to their home. A tray with a hook extension is a perfect catchall for keys, change and bags. And a chair by the door offers a place to store Jared’s motorcycle helmet.

Designer Genes

Tina and Jared have collaborated on the design of a furniture line that includes everything from their modern streamlined sofa to their marble and leather coffee table. The streamlined aesthetic of the furnishings mirror the aesthetic of the entire home, where minimalism meets materiality to create a uniquely striking design.

Tactile Elements

Tina has a love of the tactile and it shows in this home. Always on top of the trends, Tina blends disparate elements—wood, lacquer and hand-made ceramics from her own line—with ease to create a beautifully serene vignette.

Modern Touches

In the kitchen, the couple sought to make it their own by adding custom finishes. Cabinets were refreshed with paint and brass hardware was added for a modern touch.

Architectural Details

The skylit kitchen has French doors that open into the master bedroom. The doors add an unexpected architectural detail and create a nice transition from one room to the next.

Minimalist Dining

The dining room is a study in minimalism. What makes the aesthetic work are the layers of texture and finishes that keep the eye delighted. In this dining room wood meets iron, meets brass, meets leather, meets sheepskin for a perfectly layered affair. Above the dining table, another piece designed by the couple, vintage lighting that can be found in industrial buildings, was installed. The found pieces were upcycled with the addition of black paint.

DIY Moment

Jared is also a musician and in the dining room he has created a cool DIY moment to house his music tech. An electronic keyboard is set inside a piano frame that Jared built. Inside the frame additional equipment is stored for his setup. Painted in a soft blue, the piano is a beautiful feature in the dining room and one absolutely creative way to hide ugly wires and tech gear.

Architectural Details

The skylit kitchen has French doors that open into the master bedroom. The doors add an unexpected architectural detail and create a nice transition from one room to the next.

Pared Back Dressing Room

Beyond the bed, a dressing area has been carved out. An oversized mirror becomes a place to check out an outfit before leaving in the morning. It’s also home to accessories from travels that look beautiful on display.

Bedside Style

This bedside table has been styled to perfection. A brass and marble lamp is a reflection of many of the other tactile furnishings featured throughout the interior. A small ceramic piece serves to hold items like rings and jewelry. And a ceramic planter designed by Tina is a perfect home for another plant.

Textured Pieces

In the master bedroom a mix of natural textures adds a hint of color and pattern to a mainly minimal space. On the bed, a set of blushing linen pillows from Tina’s online shop adds a whisper of pink. A mudcloth bolster brings a cultural element home.

Rustic Elements

Over the bed, woven lighting feels rustic and is the perfect fit for the home’s beachy vibe. The pendant also highlights the room’s high ceilings that allow it to fill with light.
