Hello from Brenda
Thanks for visiting us at Decorative Crafts! My name is Brenda Kelly Cohn, I am Jeff’s wife and an interior designer. My design work has been featured in many national magazines over the years including, House Beautiful, Better Homes and Gardens, The New York Times, The Bermudian, and Westchester Magazine. I even designed a room for Calico Corners, and was featured in their catalog – such a fun project for me! I tend to like to mix old and new, high-end and flea market finds. I draw my inspiration from my love of old things, having grown up in an 1920’s English Tudor on the Hudson, my British father and my mother who has a “great eye” for things, always taking me to antique stores!
I have really been enjoying my time in Italy with Jeff, buying for Decorative Crafts, alongside Jeff. I am falling in love with so many new pieces at Decorative Crafts that I mix into our interior design at home. This month, I am loving our beautiful Italian Saline bowl. We just got back from the amazing Italian factory where I designed some lamps, too!
Fall is an exciting time for us at Decorative Crafts! In addition to our beautiful new website, we have a major showroom renovation coming next month, as well as monthly special events! Be sure to follow our Instagram @DecorativeCrafts for a peak into our travels, along with new products, and exclusive photo-shoots.
As they say in Italy, Ciao!
