Virginia started id 810 design group after recognizing a need in the high-end Manhattan residential market for a firm with specialized knowledge in both interior design and the construction process. Her formal training is in interior design, and she gained experience from working for a high-end residential design build firm in New York as well as from helping her father, a general contractor, on construction sites as a child. Virginia finds inspiration in old buildings and brownstones in Brooklyn, where she grew up, as well as in the colors and textures of nature. A modernist at heart, her personal style exemplifies understated modern elegance, enhanced with classically fresh decor. Virginia is a mother who loves historical fiction and entertaining in her 1920's Craftsman style New Jersey home which, as a designer through and through, she is constantly updating.
Jessica grew up drawing houses and rearranging her bedroom furniture; it wasn't until a social worker role allowed her to take on the project of renovating and designing a children's hospital playroom that she decided to turn her passion for interior design full-time. Hired by Virginia to work at id 810 design group as the firm's second employee, Jessica and Virginia quickly realized they had a shared vision for the company and the two became business partners. Jessica's design vision is inspired by colors, from the effect they have on mood to their various applications, whether it's a tone-on-tone or high-contrast look. A mother of twin girls, Jessica enjoys spending free time perusing her Hoboken neighborhood, visiting the local Farmer's Market and sitting down with a good New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. She also just completed a gut renovation on her 1890's row house.
