On a recent August afternoon, Chris Frattaroli and Sam Knapp met at Tiger Lily’s to discuss a budget for a potential collaboration. The duo, contractor and designer respectively, were neighbors growing up just outside Belle Haven.
Back in the day, they rode Big Wheels down the driveway and went to Greenwich Public Schools together. Fast forward to summer 2014 and Knapp, who is the face of Tiger Lily’s where she works with her parents restoring, reupholstering and designing interiors enjoys collaborating with Frattaroli, who runs CNN Construction LLC and Frattaroli Development, LLC, building and remodeling homes and commercial properties.
Knapp said that casting directors connected with her after spotting her work on Houzz.com, where her interior design and decorating projects are arranged in tempting cluster of photos.
