UnCommon INteriors is known for organic, dramatic and comfortable designs that reflect the owner’s vision and lifestyle. Integrating an intelligent use of architecture, Beth Lane decorates and stages residential homes and commercial properties. Her philosophy features a creative use of feng shui, color and texture. Beth believes that a space tells a story, and that each room in a building reveals the next chapter. UnCommon INteriors uses vegetable dyed rugs and case goods from third world countries as well as custom designs built by expert craftsmen in the U.S. The juxtaposition of antiques infused with spare, modern designs is a trademark of the firm. Guiding art purchases to musical instruments are all within the scope of UnCommon Interiors. Lighting plays a crucial role in all of Beth’s designs. Ambiance and attitude are common characteristics that work together to create a livable, harmonious and playful landing pad.
Beth’s career as an actress on stage and in film and television led to her pursuit of staging homes for sale. Her interior design skills have been crafted though her extensive travels abroad. UnCommon INteriors began when Beth and then partner, Patricia Horing, chose to corner a niche in the market that focused on “using what you have.” Their motto was, “It’s not what you have, it’s how you use it.” The business has grown significantly since those early days. However, Beth still believes in and encourages tithing principles, recycling and restoring. Creating a new space or refining one that already exists is a process involving ongoing communication regarding concepts, deadlines and budgets.
Beth has been invited by realtors to lecture on her home staging techniques, and she has contributed articles to the Pelham Weekly and Pelham Post newspapers. Beth studied drafting at the Parsons School of Design and has single-handedly maintained an exclusive clientele since 2000.
