Builder Grade vs Designer

builder vs DesignerWe took a builder grade new home and made every detail in every room feel truly ‘designer’. How did we do it without changing paint?  Well, wallpaper was used in 3 rooms, light fixtures were changed everywhere, faucets were upgraded in all bathrooms, and a cohesive design palette was infused in every fabric,…

Fresh Laundry & Bathrooms

Function Refreshed!Roberta told us her laundry room is one of her favorite places (now that we created masses of style and joy in the space)! We love taking small functional spaces and putting loads of color and design details in every corner.  Whether it’s wallpaper, a black vanity, transitional wainscoting, deep water blue beadboard, or dark…

Man Cave Zone

Man cave joyThe start:  a completely blank pallette and a BIG wish for a fun entertainment zone! And so we created a man cave that all would envy with a pool table, kitchenette and bar zone, and lounge area in the core space.  Originally, there was no fireplace in the client’s concept request, but we…

Expansive Bedroom Suite

Expansive SuiteRequest:  ‘Create a luxurious statement space for me to retire to at the end of the day.’  That was the goal in this expansive bedroom suite! We delivered an elegant & masculine, transitional mix in a smoky blue & gray pallette.   The next level details:  a stunning coffered ceiling with two glimmering chandeliers, layers…

Cozy Family Room

Cozy Open SpaceWho says the words ‘cozy’ and ‘open space’ can’t go hand-in-hand?! We helped this wonderful couple transform their family room and kitchen by refreshing their fireplace, changing flooring in the kitchen, knocking out a wall, adding all new furnishings and accessories, and loads of lighter, brighter paint.  Rich textures of leather, jute rugs,…

Cooks Colorful Joy

Cook’s JoyHere’s a fun challenge:  create a bright open feeling space with floors that are 1 1/2″ different in height.  Wonderful renderings and ‘faith’ to the rescue!  Check out the 2 rendering options it came down to below. We knocked out a wall, reused the island to create a pennisula (creating a much more open…

Cali Dreamin’

Cali Bath + ClosetIt’s a joy when a client of 18 years ago asks us to do GREAT things in their home now! This project was all about transporting this ‘on-the-verge-of-retirement’ to one of their favorite vacation destinations — California.  To do so, we knocked out and shifted walls in both their closet and bathroom,…

Oo La La!

French Cookin’Bathrooms were last year’s project for this client.  They were so happy that this year’s project was a whole French country kitchen, fresh paint, and stunning new floors throughout their home. To create a ‘new-heart-of-the-home’ they could be proud of, we removed odd soffits throughout their kitchen, installed all new cabinets and appliances, helped…

Modern Bathrooms

Modern BathsEdgy, stylized, unique modern bathrooms X 3! In the Main Bathroom we created a massive custom shower by moving a wall, and flipping the location of the shower the commode (and upgraded it to a bidet), and switching out the garden tub.  The Jack & Jill bath was just a refresh, but wallpaper makes…

Serene Bath

Rethought SpacesClient purpose/ ask:  create an expansive bathroom and make sure it has wow factor.  ‘Wow ‘ could have just been accomplished with great tile and shifting things around a bit, but we went further. In this case we thought outside the bathroom’s existing 4 walls and put some adjacent areas to better use.  Not…
