“I love getting to know my clients and creating a home that reflects who they are. This isn't about me or the current trend. It's about you and how you want to live.”
Crystal, Founder of CP Interiors
Crystal Photiou spent her high school and college years working in the Flower Market in downtown Manhattan. It was there that she developed a love for the wide range of colors and textures nature can produce. She spent the next 15 years in the Fashion Industry sourcing, developing and designing. Her greatest passion was- and still is- mixing, matching and coordinating fabrics, colors and finishes to create a cohesive collection. She has traveled to Paris, London, Milan and Asia, sourcing the most beautiful plaids, prints and luxurious fabrics. Working in fashion is not just about “pretty”- It’s about deadlines, problem solving, “the bottom line” and working with people with different personalities and needs- This experience makes Crystal uniquely suited to her next endeavor- Interior design. As a Long Island interior designer, Crystal partners with her clients to give them beautiful, balanced and livable spaces. She has an intimate understanding of color, texture and form- and a tight eye for scale and space. She’s also a realist- Life is messy- people LIVE in their homes- Crystal really listens and looks at how her clients live and designs into their lifestyle. She will be your greatest advocate- whether working on a full house renovation, or a one room makeover- Crystal keeps her eye on the ball- making sure the process stays on schedule and connecting the dots- so you don’t have to. AND… making it fun! Can’t leave that out!
