Meet Andrea Sinkin Jaffe

Andrea Sinkin Design



Your scope of work: Residential and Commercial

 Bio:  Andrea Sinkin Jaffe has always had a passion for design, fashion, and travel. As the daughter of successful interior designer and business owner, Beverly Sinkin of the New York-based Beverly Sinkin Design, Andrea developed her unique sense of style and design aesthetic at an early age. Andreabegan an illustrious fashion career as a New York representative for European Art studios based in Italy, France, and the UK. In this role, she gave trend direction, as well as showcased their work directly, to Creative Directors at companies such as Knoll, Duralee, Croscill, Macys, Schumacher, Robert Allen, and many more notable firms.
After 15 years gaining experience in the fashion and design world, Andrea went back to her roots to work for her mother’s design firm, using her experience in fashion to help elevate her craft as an interior designer. In 2017, Andrea founded Andrea Sinkin Design and is finally bringing together her two passions of fashion and design to her clients’ homes. She understands textiles, color, floor plans and design from the ground up and truly loves a collaborative relationship with her clients.
Fun Facts about Andrea (in her own words):

Favorite Color:  Do not have one…for fashion I wear a lot of black in the winter, cool tones in the summer…for home decor I look for the vibe we are creating and use color in terms of psychology. I have always loved blush tones which are having their moment! Blues bring our brains to water and relaxation. Greys are an easy neutral break to go to anytime etc. 

Favorite Food: I have been a pescatarian for 30 years... could not even tell you what a piece of meat would take like anymore.  Give me an oyster platter with a glass of wine and you have a best friend for life. At home we do a lot of vegetable roasting with blackened fish (Thank God for windows and hood vents because I'm know to set the smoke alarms off!) We try to keep it healthy at home so when we go out to eat, we can indulge more. 
Favorite Vacation: Oh my gosh, that is like picking a favorite child. We have a few places we go to often like The Ocean Club in the Bahamas, Mexico, London, Stratton, VT for skiing, Montauk in the summer (I grew up with a small house on the ocean there)  and then we always throw in some new places each year also. We love to explore new cultures and cities but our lives are so hetic with work and 2 little girls that our best trips are typically relazing on a beach and getting in bed early!  We miss the big exploring trips but in the life stage we are at right now, easy comfortable trips are best. My husband and I adore our girls so much that wile we could easily travel without them (we have a great support network) we don't want to. We feel like since we had children a little later in life, we got to do so much and don't want to miss a moment with them. The only caveat here is that we hate leaving our dogs so that clips our wings a bit too!  
What book or TV series have you binged lately?  I should be ashamed to say this but I am mad for a book series called "The Shade" ... I'm on book like 80 something, No Joke. Teen Lit Sci Fi vampire romance. There I admitted it. Judge me freely. For TV, I usually flip on Bravo. I don't typically have the attention span following a series requires, I fade off after a few shows... but I'm a romantic so give me outlander and I could sit watching it for days! Also any travel related shows and history shows are my jam... I could eat anything historical with a spoon.
