While many homes appear in neat, uniform rows on city blocks throughout Jersey City and Hoboken, what lies behind their doors is anything but ordinary. We explored the area and found some of the most unique interior design styles throughout Hudson County.
A stunning, curved, grand staircase with wrought-iron spindles and custom wainscoting greets guests as they enter this magnificent single-family home. Showcasing a transitional design scheme, this space marries classic elements with unique updates. The timeless kitchen features gray Caesarstone quartz countertops that perfectly match with the funky tile backsplash from Stone Source.
For a more traditional feel, Shaker-style cabinets were installed with refined fixtures. Throughout the home, original elements like fireplace mantels remain just steps away from more contemporary additions like patterned floor tiles and chic light fixtures. The different blends of interior design styles here create a one-of-a-kind Hoboken home.
Next, we visit an award-winning, single-family home on Willow Avenue in Midtown Hoboken. Here, industrial-chic design meets ultramodern amenities. One can’t miss the striking focal point of the home, a private glass elevator that runs from the garden level up to the rooftop terrace. To stun guests further, the layout of the home was designed around a jaw-dropping, three-story opening with massive spherical chandeliers that lets light flood the entirety of the home from skylights on the roof level which creates a loft-like feel throughout.
Exposed bricks, beams, and ducts on the parlor level immediately give off industrial vibes, while a timeless black, white, and wood kitchen at the rear introduces a modern design scheme. Floor-to-ceiling, fully opening, glass NanaWalls on each level bring the outdoors in and the indoors out.
Finally, with a green roof deck, two terraces, and a private backyard, residents feel one with nature while taking in peek-a-boo views of the Empire State Building.
Melding original elements with sleek modern design requires a skilled hand, but it’s perfectly showcased at Barrow Street in Downtown Jersey City. Ultramodern designs, like a minimalist kitchen and sleek master bath, lie right alongside hundred-year-old original elements, including moldings, archways, and fireplaces.
The monochromatic kitchen features an integrated fridge with custom paneling to perfectly match the surrounding cabinetry, a full-height marble tile backsplash, chevron hardwood floors, and a wood feature on the ceiling that holds modern light fixtures. Mere inches away, find the original fireplace mantel and the existing staircase, both of which have been fully revitalized.
Head to the full-width master bathroom and you’ll find an understated custom double vanity and floor-to-ceiling marble touches. A glass-enclosed structure, housing a deep soaking tub and rain shower, has been constructed within an original archway — again, touching on this home’s historic roots.
Elsewhere throughout the home, some rooms take daring risks, with hardwood floors that seamlessly travel up walls, multicolored triangle floor tiles, and entirely black feature walls. To top it off? A state-of-the-art media room that spans the entire top floor of the home.
A modern masterpiece lies in Paulus Hook on Sussex Street, boasting a rooftop deck with a hot tub, a multi-level backyard, and four floors of luxury. Few original elements remained when deciding on the design style for this home, so the Dixon Projects Interior Design Team opted for a full-gut modern renovation.
Contemporary family living played a large role in how this home was created resulting in a fully open floorplan, a chic modern kitchen, and expansive private living spaces with as much outdoor access as possible.
The kitchen features white Caesarstone quartz countertops, except for the island, which is finished in concrete. Cabinetry is devoid of fixtures and integrated finger pulls provide sleek access. A single horizontal pendant light hangs over the island contributing to the minimalist design. Head to the master bedroom where a floor-to-ceiling, full-width NanaWall provides access to a private terrace and creates an ideal indoor-outdoor oasis.
Industrial design, we meet again — except this time, we’re in The Heights, where this stunning home earned the Global Choice Award at the 2017 ARDA awards. Truly unparalleled views of the Manhattan skyline dictated the design scheme in this massive home on Ogden Avenue.
To capitalize on the views as much as possible, the space was designed with large, open spaces and the rear of the home features three levels of sliding glass walls, two NanaWalls, and one floor-to-ceiling glass door.
The views also influenced how the outdoor space of this home was designed, with four levels of outdoor living: a terrace off the living room, a smaller balcony off the master bedroom, a roof deck with a pool (or hot tub for those winter months), and a crowning terrace on top of the penthouse bulkhead.
Inside, exposed bricks, beams, and ducts set the stage for the parlor level. Natural wood floors expertly match the beams above and a modern kitchen at the rear features large professional-grade stainless steel appliances.
As the renovation of this home took shape, no salvageable architectural details remained so the home received a full gut renovation that would showcase clean, modern design in two units. Well known for renowned views, this Ogden Avenue home was also designed to ensure as many spaces as possible could showcase the stunning cityscape. Both kitchens were designed with Alpine Mist Caesarstone countertops and blue/gray Shaker-style cabinetry.
The focal point of each space? Fully opening glass walls that provide access to private outdoor spaces and sweeping views. The larger unit’s kitchen features a unique design feature, a wallpapered tray ceiling detail to disguise ducts in the ceiling. The bedrooms all feature distinctive octagonal lighting fixtures from Restoration Hardware because while their design is minimal, they give off a ton of light and make fun patterns on the ceiling when illuminated. Finally, all bathrooms feature sophisticated design, some in hues of gray, some with floor-to-ceiling patterned wall tiles, and all with custom wood vanities.
The best part? A massive roof deck with a full kitchen and grill, taking “grilling and chilling” to the next level.
