Caitlin Rutkay Transforms the HipNJ Studio

Caitlin Rutkay Transforms the HipNJ Studio

#HipNJ interviewed Caitlin Rutkay, owner of C.R. Interior Designs. Rutkay has helped transform the #HipNJ’s new office and studio into a modern area that gives our company lots of personality!

Her creativity and eye for design helped not only alter our studio, but all her clients that she works for as well. Rutkay describes her business as interesting. She works with different kinds of home and business owners improving their space. This ranges from a decorative standpoint, or a complete renovation and overhaul of their home. 

She has converted what was once a raw and generic corporate space, to a modern office for #HipNJ which gave it the personality it needed. She was able to design a new office that reflected what #HipNJ is truly about; youth and what is up and coming in New Jersey.

Our entry to our office now has a sense of importance, from the checkered floors to a solid color, differentiating the rooms since there is no wall. This brings trendiness to the whole office as well. The cabinetry not only separates the room, but also serves as a coffee bar to add uniqueness. The main office consists of high top desks that are currently the latest trend. This allows for a flexible workspace, giving the option to sit or stand.

The mirrors within our office are also very important. As Rutkay stated, “We needed some mirrors considering that there are a lot of fashion clients of this business.” Therefore, she was able to repurpose an armoire to give us beautiful large mirrors to use. Our editing room has been redesigned to offer comfortability and we were able to reuse our leather seating from the old office.

The finishing space truly does speak for itself thanks to Caitlin Rutkay! Check out Caitlin on Instagram.
