Introduction: Cricket Burns has over 25 years of experience providing services to a wide variety of clients in New York City, The Hamptons, and the Metro New York area. Her work has been published countess times in HC&G, NYC&G, Beach, Hamptons, Avenue and Quest. She's known: As a talented style maven who understands the clients needs.... easy to work with....provides amazing work quickly... she's just gets the job done! One big difference to Cricket’s service is that her decorating business is uniquely supported by her online consignment business. Cricket has over 20,000 sq ft of amazing home furnishings she personally curated. She curates from a list of “who’s who” of stylish homes in the New York area. She sells on Cricketscrush.com but mostly uses the inventory for her decorating, jushing and staging projects. Jushing is a term she coined for her take on refreshing a home. She comes to your home with a truck load of her treasures to re-style your home's rooms in a day. Jushing is an amazing option for those who have great furnishings but need a style re-refresh. If you’d like to see Cricket in action, watch her web series The Jusher on cricketscrush.com. Past clients include: • Cricket jushed up a large family home on the grounds of Westchester Country Club. She mixed Cricket Crush's inventory with the family’s decor. They were amazed with the transformation which occurred almost overnight! • A recently single woman needed Cricket to design her 3 bedroom apartment in New York City. She cried with joy when she came home from work to see what Cricket had done to her apartment in just a matters of hours. • Grandparents gifted Cricket services for their grand daughter’s first apartment in New York City. Cricket’s flare with pop art and contemporary chic hit the sweet spot with the gen-Xer. A Soho building developer hired Cricket to stage 6 model apartments in their newly renovated rental apartment building. The challenge was showing how tiny living can be super cool. They loved way the small apartments scaled up with Crickets decor. Cricket turned a New York City designer's office back into a Upper East Side one bedroom contemporary dream. The apartment went into contract within 24 hours of Cricket finishing the job. A Bronxville family needed new rooms to be designed by Cricket after a recent renovation. Cricket created a home office for the working mom that has become the owners favorite getaway space. Several builders in The Hamptons have used Cricket's staging services for newly completed estates in Southampton, Bridgehampton and Watermill. The "working mom home office" is at the top of list of rooms builders want Cricket to create. Notable work: Designer at Hamptons Design Showhouse - 2017, 2016, 2015 - Cover NYC&G / HC&G - December 2016. Cover NYC&G - July 2014 Beach - Story - August 2016 Media: Segment NYC&G Online web TV - 2018 Segment NBC’s Open House TV with Sara Gore - 2018 The Jusher & other Crickets Crush webisodes - 30 Episodes Evine Home Shopping Network - Crickets Crush Diamonds - 4 hours - 2016 I love when clients are brought to tears when they see my work. Since I can work very fast using my existing inventory, I don't get into "delays" associated with custom made decors. Thus, the relationship I have with my clients is always very very good. Not only do I get jazzed about hitting the desired aesthetic, I love when the project is done quickly. The speed at which I can transform a home really astonishes all of my clients. This job gives me a sense of great satisfaction when I know the owners finally have a home to enjoy!

Home Staging

Using Crickets Crush was a great idea. I live on the west coast and was selling a NY apartment. Crickets Crush made it easy to stage the apartment and even arranged for a room to be painted. I would use them again.

Cricket did a great job with our house. She is a very good listener and patiently helped us decorate the house exactly the way we like. She was very conscious of the budget and looked for pieces within our budget. She did not rush us into anything. Imagining the space and making it lively is one of her expertise. She makes the process very exciting!!

We recently restored/renovated a 100+ year old building, Cricket did an absolutely incredible job of staging apartments in an eclectic style that perfectly complemented/showcased both the rich historical character of the building as well as the upgrades. Her creativity, professionalism and timeliness were well above what we expected. A delight to work with.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I begin with helping you design on a budget for the project. The rooms that have the most importance. We try to come up with a project price as much as we can. I stay with in that project price. To help me help you stay on budget, I do own about 20,000 square feet of estate furnishing we keep in our warehouse. Typically, these items are being sold for a fraction of the original cost. I have jobs that have used lots of decor from my warehouse and some jobs that have used none. This depends on the style of the job.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We don't charge for the consultation.  We meet to discuss the desired needs. I put together a detailed proposal based our collaboration of ideas

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    25 years working as a magazine fashion and style editor. Harpars Bazzar, Avenue, Quest and more.
