Featured Designer: Haleh Niroo "I instantly fell in love with Habersham’s Old World elegance." - Linda Vickers
For Linda Vickers, it was love at first sight … Visiting homes with her real estate agent in anticipation of a planned move with her husband to Potomac, MD , Linda came upon a spec home by David Niroo, Niroo Masterpieces. During her tour of the 25,000‐square‐foot home, Linda was taken with the custom kitchen that David’s wife and interior design partner Haleh Niroo, Haleh Design, Inc., had created.
Working with the custom kitchen cabinetry design team at Habersham, Haleh had fashioned a stunning space that is as fabulous as it is functional. Haleh’s choice of rich, hand‐styled finishes for the spacious island, Venetian Hearth range hood, integrated refrigeration and other cabinetry exuded an Old World look and feel that instantly captured Linda’s attention.
“She fell in love with the kitchen and when I told Linda about Habersham’s custom capabilities for other rooms in the home, including the master suite, she saw a special opportunity,” says Haleh. “The chance to create an interior design environment custom tailored to her own needs and style sensibilities was especially appealing to Linda.”
For the master dressing room, Haleh was faced with a number of challenges ‐‐ a third of the closet space was taken up by a large window and the other walls had obstacles and obstructions. Haleh’s solution – to outfit the space with wall‐ to‐wall mirrored panels and storage areas by Habersham. Framed in a soft, hand‐styled Sandemar finish , the mirrors helped to dramatically open up the small 10 ‘ x 12’ space.
“Your home should envelop you in luxury every time you step through the door. That’s especially true with the master bath,” says Haleh, pointing to the Habersham custom vanity and mirror designs she chose for the space. If you look in the mirror you’ll get a glimpse of the Habersham Bibilotheque that is also part of the master suite.
“I believe that beauty is in the details,” adds Haleh, explaining how Habersham’s finishes and custom designs provided the perfect complement to the master bath’s chandelier and ceiling mural. “I worked very closely with Linda to understand exactly how she wanted to use and enjoy this space.”
For the family room, Haleh chose Habersham’s dramatic, custom‐styled and hand‐painted Belmont TV unit as the central focal point. Habersham’s Valencia Table and Adelaide Chairs provide a casually elegant touch to the dining room.
Haleh and Linda are still working together on other parts of the home, including a “Doll Room” where Habersham cabinetry has been used to showcase Linda’s exquisite collection of antique and rare dolls.
“I love working with the Habersham line,” adds Haleh. “From the limitless custom capabilities to the versatile styles and finishes, Habersham always helps me meet and exceed my client’s expectations.”
