is an interior designer in the NY area, based in lower Westchester. Her interior design philosophy is to create a seamless experience for her clients that transforms their space to fit their lifestyle and their personal style. Judith’s first childhood home was Apartment 7B in Park Slope, Brooklyn. She moved to Westchester, earned her BBA at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, and then settled in Manhattan. When Judith and her husband welcomed their first daughter into the world, it was in Apartment 7B on the Upper East Side. Years later, Judith named her design firm after the homes where she started both childhood and motherhood. After a career in digital marketing for luxury, fashion, and beauty brands, two more daughters, and a move to Westchester, she went on to study interior design at Parsons at The New School. As a third generation entrepreneur, the daughter of an architect and psychologist, and a born project manager with a passion for design, launching 7B Design was an inevitable next endeavor. She now works on residential and commercial projects throughout Westchester and NYC. Judith lives with her husband and three daughters in Edgemont, NY. She spends her spare time with family and friends, exploring local restaurants, discovering new art, enjoying the performing arts, and traveling.
