THE SHOPPES AT STERLING PARC IN MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. ADDS FLAWLESS PAWS TO ITS RETAIL ROSTER

Sterling Properties has announced the addition of Flawless Paws to the expanding retail roster at The Shoppes at Sterling Parc, an 18,000 square-foot retail center in the heart of nearly 500 high-end residential units in Middletown, N.Y.

Offering one of the most complete pet grooming experiences in the Hudson Valley, Flawless Paws has opened a new 1,250 square-foot modern location at The Shoppes at Sterling Parc that’s perfectly suited to allow for further expansion of the company’s clientele.   Formed in 2001, Flawless Paws grooms all breeds and sizes of dogs and cats using only the finest and safest all natural products.   All pets are bathed with high end “Prima” bathing systems, which oxidize a mixture of shampoo and water resulting in a seriously deep clean coat and healthier skin. The company also sells a small selection of home grooming supplies and products, as well as popular “Pet Odor Exterminator” candles and sprays.

“Our original shop was located in the lower level of my home,” says owner and founder Shay Roda, who possesses more than a decade of experience in pet grooming.  “It was the perfect situation for me to get on my feet and gain a loyal following.  However, we outgrew that location and strict regulations for residential-based companies were limiting the growth of my company. Parking was also getting tough with a residential driveway and a growing number of daily customers.”

The Shoppes at Sterling Parc was the perfect retail center to support the growth of Flawless Paws with customized suites that meet specific business needs.   In addition to providing a state-of-the-art retail center to call home, the new site allowed Flawless Paws to create a salon that further broadens its scope of unique services by incorporating facilities dedicated to “special needs” pets, such as rescued dogs and senior pets with compromised health.  Continue reading

RENOWNED DESIGNER ERNEST DE LA TORRE AND ARCHITECT WALTER CAIN TO REIMAGINE EDWARD HOPPER’S BEDROOM IN HIS NYACK HOME

2017-03-22_10-07-26Through May, 2017

The Edward Hopper House is pleased to announce the restaging of Edward Hopper’s bedroom. The bedroom, in which Hopper spent the first 28 years of his life, will be transformed into a showcase designed in period style by Ernest de la Torre, listed as one of Elle Décor’s top 25 designers and featured designer in Architectural Digest, as well as Piermont resident and architect, Walter Cain.

The staging of Hopper’s bedroom is a fitting acknowledgement of the profound impact the space had on his artistic development. Growing up with a view of the Hudson River from his bedroom window, young Edward Hopper was inevitably drawn to its banks. He would spend hours at the village docks and shipyards, sketching and watching the building and rigging of boats. The activity on the river is captured in many of Hopper’s early drawings and paintings, and boats and seascapes remained common subjects in his art throughout his life.

Also central to his artistic development was the so-called “Hudson River light” of Nyack. The strong rays of morning sunlight streaming through the east facing windows of his bedroom would create shifting patterns of light and shadow on the floor and walls. Hopper incorporated these tangible blocks of sunlight into early paintings and many of his later masterpieces. Visitors to this showcase will be able to appreciate all the unique features of the bedroom that so inspired Edward Hopper and led him on his creative path.

Due to the historic nature of the house and other limitations, the second floor room is only accessible by the stairs.

free for children, $2 for students, $5 for seniors, $7 for adults
