Wanda Furman – Home Style Consultant

Hammertown readers  might already be familiar with Wanda’s name.  She was a pivotal force behind the Gatehouse Redo in Pine Plains this spring and she styled the recent photo shoot we had for our newly-published brochure.

This past February, Auntie M did a 3 part interview with Joan and Wanda when they discussed the renovation of the Gatehouse (click here) as well as the collaborative nature of their relationshipwhen planning the renovation.  In the first interview (click here for Part 1) , you can get a deeper understanding of why Wanda is such a wonderful “find” when it comes to home decorating and design.  Even Joan, the tour-de-force behind everything “Hammertown” relies on Wanda’s discerning eye:

” I go to Wanda often to ask for her “fresh eye” in my own home…what I need to keep…what’s working…what isn’t. She styled my home for the APG Garden Tour this summer. Wanda really does help you bring your soul, style and spirit into your home. She’s helped me a lot with mine.”

Hi Joan,

I recently met again with Wanda Furman and wanted to let you know how much I value her style and design help. When we were very new to the Hudson Valley 5 years ago, you helped me connect with her to choose colors and furniture for our new home. She was instrumental then in helping me make design choices, and I continue to call on her periodically to help me with decisions big and small. From relatively big design investments to small decisions like how to structure a room or where a table should go, she always manages to steer me in the right direction while respecting my preferences and limitations (be they budget or an emotional attachment to something). She is a gem and I rarely make a big design decision without her!

Many thanks!
