One of the most important aspects of being a designer is the ability to understand a client’s lifestyle and needs, then transforming this knowledge into a tangible, fresh design that reflects the individual’s style. Bruce Norman Long of Bruce Normal Long Interior Design does this well, and we recognize the New Jersey design firm for their contributions to the design world with a Design Shuffle Top 10 of 2013 Award. Born into a family of antique and art collectors, Bruce was exposed to the world of design and architecture at an early age. In 1993, Bruce launched his firm and has since been creating personalized homes that owners just love. Bruce’s philosophy is that “if a room goes unused, he hasn’t done his job.”
A complete remodel of this Princeton residence brought out the architectural elements and added colorful flair to the home with eclectic and personal furnishings. The spectrum of rooms featured in this home is proof of Bruce and his team’s flawless integration of design styles with the lifestyle of the client. Walk through the spectrum of styles in this unique space:
Velvety textures and and minimally ornate furnishings give guests and family a comfortable place to spend their evenings.
An eclectic mix of mid-century modern aesthetics, paired with a tranquil pool, create a relaxing, yet fun, lounge area.
With the feel of a country cottage, this dining area allows natural lighting to permeate the room, bringing cheer into the home.
Soothing lavender can be found in every element of this room, but textured patterns provide a vivid contrast to the space.
A dining room with charcoal walls and an elegant rug, surrounded by decorative mounting and illuminated by a sparkling chandelier – what’s not to love?
A fiery orange and black combination brings drama to this powder room.
The shabby chic feel of the room is fused with a modern touch. A glistening chandelier provides a bohemian feel to the space.
Teal makes its way to this eclectic bedroom. Who can resist zebra carpet and the delightful mix of furnishings?
