Open House NYC, hosted by New York Live’s Sara Gore, is known for showcasing glamorous homes filled with breathtaking shelter pieces all throughout Manhattan’s elite properties. While the focus of the show revolves around highlighting these beautifully designed homes, viewers find it intriguing to gather tips from the ingenious minds of the interior designers responsible for making it all come together.
This week’s episode, which will run on the NBC4 NY channel, will feature HudsonMOD’s very own design editor Vanessa Deleon Bournias. Throughout the episode, Vanessa will give viewers an inside look at one of her “favorite projects,” and how her and her team at VDA Designs transformed this luxury home to give it a certain look and feel.
This lavish home belongs to a young family with three children and is located in the prominent New Jersey town Franklin Lakes, not too far from the New York City border. Vanessa said that this newly built home took her and her team almost an entire year to style.
Vanessa is mostly known for her ‘Glamilistic’ signature touch—a mix between streamlined minimalism with glamorous details—which she adds to mostly every project she works on. She has an extensive interior design resume, and has styled numerous luxury homes and penthouses throughout northern New Jersey, New York City, Jersey City, as well as commercial spaces, restaurants, and even her own home in Edgewater, New Jersey. Vanessa has starred on numerous television programs that highlighted her interior design skills such as NBC’s American Dream Builders, HGTV’s Design Star and on the Food Network’s Restaurant Impossible.
Her latest project, alongside husband Bobby Bournias, was to come up with a design for their newest restaurant The Brownstone Diner & Pancake Factory. Located in Edgewater, this was the second Brownstone diner location to take root in New Jersey. Calling it one of her most challenging projects yet, Vanessa and her team came up with an idea that would flip the restaurant upside down… literally; and the design is not like anything you’ve ever seen before.
