CareOne-Livingston

This sprawling 114-bed facility with an average resident age of 84 years is a licensed nursing home in New Jersey. Located in a prominent residential area, the wood-framed building is designed to reflect an elegant residence. The architect adapted a French country-style architecture for this building using a combination of stucco and stone veneers complimented with shuttered, arched windows and an elaborate array of cedar shingled roof lines. + Read More

The interior designer carried the French country influence throughout the building interior. The interior features stained wood arched openings along with scrolled ironwork, decorative rough-sawn roof trusses, and faux painted thicker-than-normal walls to accentuate the design theme. The interiors also have an abundance of rich colors, fabrics and oversize wood mouldings throughout. Entering the lobby, residents and guests are welcomed by a warm gold-toned marble floor under a stained glass dome ceiling.

All resident area hallways are richly decorated with patterned carpets inset in various styles of wood borders. Handrails throughout the building hallways are designed to replicate an ornate chair rail moulding. Coffered ceilings are used extensively with crystal chandeliers and wall sconces to enhance the general lighting. The finishing touch is a small brass mailbox hung at each room’s door to make the residents feel at home.
