TSNY was born from the vision of Taylor Spellman’s core belief that one’s home is not a luxury, it is an essential component of the human experience along with water, food and love.  From penthouses to eclectic studios, the artistic vision of our design team knows no bounds, offering an aesthetic that ranges from the attainable to the aspirational. We are hardworking, no nonsense, fast talking women from all over the globe who work harder and play the hardest.  We manage our portfolio by veering away from the latest trends (which we hate, by the way) and instead, vying for our signature TSNY no rules aesthetic that results in client centric spaces that are full of character and personality (just like us).

We pride ourselves on meeting our clients exactly where they are, guiding them to discover the design that best suits their life and how they live.  Our firm manages and executes multi-faceted design projects, working hand in hand with contractors, architects, fine art professionals and vendors to create interiors that speak to the unique aesthetic of each individual client.  Most importantly, we make it through our twelve hour days relying on the sanity we create out of our collective love of sarcasm and all things design.  Our fearless leader, Taylor, inspires us with her creative genius and we all work together to tackle the New York City real estate jungle, day in and day out.  It is a lot of blood, sweat and tears that we mop up with a bar napkin and a large glass of wine at the end of every long day. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.
