Katherine Newman and her partner, Peter Cebulak, believe good design means having appropriate vision. The firm is guided by the philosophy that the design articulated within a space should be entirely in communion with its physical envelope. Both interiors and exteriors should reflect the utmost in balance, harmony of elements and quality of finishes. Newman and her partner design interiors that are nonetheless layered and textured. The firm has a transitional aesthetic that operates between styles, but with a strong historic reference. There's a timelessness and flexibility in their designs and a feminine sense of comfort.
