A gorgeous Larchmont home designed by Nicole Fisher, delicious CBD treats developed by Doug Schneider, eye-opening and entertaining Hudson Valley adventures curated by Robin Helman and Elizabeth Knell … We’re proud to share some of the well-deserved media coverage our members have received this Fall.

First up, Westchester Home chose wisely in highlighting the supremely talented Nicole Fisher of BNR Interiors. This Larchmont home is dreamy, complete with luxe textures and dramatic features, and is representative of Nicole’s rich, warm style. 

From the story: “Imagine what a designer who’s worked as a wardrobe stylist for Lady Gaga and created interiors for Lucy Liu and Bobbi Brown could do for a suburban home. That talent is Nicole Fisher, who tackled those A-list gigs and more before founding her own firm, BNR Interiors, and helping clients like the owners of this Larchmont house.” Read the full article here.

Got a project for Nicole? 

Next, we learn all about Doug Schneider and co-founder Silvana Nardone’s new venture into CBD edibles, Via Viaggio, as featured in Westchester Magazine. We got a sneak peek when they photographed their new line around the office, and a sneak taste as well (yuMMMMMMM).

The attractively packaged edibles have arrived an ideal time—for giving the gift of relaxation and self-care to help wrap up this epic year for those you love.

Says Nardone in the article, “I’m just going to try to make something that I’d want to eat every day, and not just sort of take it like medicine.” GOAL ACHIEVED. Read the full article here.

Last up is a HudCo collaboration that was named Best Curated Day Trip Company by Hudson Valley MagazineGo Love NY, a business founded by Robin Helman and Elizabeth Knell. The duo has developed a select list of private, pod-friendly tours such as kayak tours across the Hudson, hikes with alpacas, and private viewings of Lyndhurst Mansion.

From the article: “Westchester residents Robin Helman and Elizabeth Knell launched Go Love NY in fall 2019 to curate private and small-group Hudson Valley excursions, with a focus on food, nature, and culture.” Read full story here.

Westchester Magazine also saw the genius in their idea—”Whether you join a planned tour or have them custom-tailor a trip for a small group consisting of family, friends, or even your quarantine pod, Go Love NY will create a Hudson Valley day to remember.” (Read more.)
