Thinking big with designer Toni Sabatino
Good design should make a statement. Interior designer and Robern Brand Ambassador Toni Sabatino’s statement is clear: go big, or go home.
Toni is the owner and lead designer of Toni Sabatino Style, an interior design firm in New York with a specialty in creating custom, distinctive interiors that mix an array of styles from classic to contemporary and grandiose to minimalist.
“I like to combine the lifestyle needs of a client with some inspiration that shows who they are,” Toni said. “I love the newly designed space to fit the client like a custom suit.”
Toni began her career in retail, followed by a stint running a plumbing supply company. She transitioned to design work as a kitchen and millwork expert for LIS Custom Designs, a New York cabinetry distributor, where she spent almost 20 years building a portfolio of more than 1000 kitchen designs. She founded Toni Sabatino Style in 2012, and she has sat on the K+BB Editorial Advisory Board since 2013.
Toni often utilizes Robern products in her bathroom designs, including her personal favorite, the Uplift cabinet. She finds that the 6” depth and signature vertically sliding door make for amazing storage.
Each of Toni’s design projects begins with a lifestyle analysis of the client’s storage and furnishing needs, as well as their desires and personal styles. For example, she often takes color inspiration for a space from a client’s closet. “I like to dress the space in a manner that they would dress themselves,” she said.
Toni takes much of her design inspiration from fashion, art and music, interests that she has been able to nurture with ease while living near the Big Apple. “ I find the city very stimulating,” she said. She also finds inspiration in the natural world, especially from aquatic environments like beaches and waterfalls.
In her free time, Toni relaxes and recharges by spending time with her grandchildren. She also enjoys attending gallery openings, museum exhibits and performances in New York.
