Domino - - DECORATING - Pho­to­graphs by MICHAEL WILTBANK text by CARO­LINE BIGGS

When domino’s chief rev­enue of­fi­cer, Beth Bren­ner, was ready to re­fresh her Man­hat­tan abode, she de­cided to start with the win­dows and work her way in.

With the help of Smith & No­ble’s in-home de­sign ser­vices, Beth Bren­ner gave her win­dows a kid­friendly up­date. Bren­ner, who has lived in her Up­per West Side apart­ment—which she shares with her hus­band, Bob, and daugh­ters, Natalie, 8, and Emma, 5—for more than 20 years, was crav­ing a change. “There’s a pe­riod of time while rais­ing small chil­dren,” she says, “in which you just don’t want to dec­o­rate out of fear that the kid­dies will de­stroy it.” But the mo­ment her girls were a bit older, Bren­ner called upon Smith & No­ble’s Jane Ma­gal­lanes, who helped her pick the per­fect cus­tom win­dow treat­ments. The com­pany’s pop­u­lar in-home client ser­vice of­fers cus­tomers such as Bren­ner ac­cess to more than 1,500 fab­rics. “Win­dow treat­ments are a smart way to fo­cus your in­te­rior de­sign needs,” says Ma­gal­lanes. “And they’re also a great jump­ing-off point for your fu­ture dec­o­rat­ing en­deav­ors.” Next step for Bren­ner?
