Birds of a feather play together

At one time, this room was a great space for girls to play dress up, do arts and crafts, build legos and play games. Now that they are transitioning out of traditional playtime, this large room can serve another purpose. My client was interested in upgrading to a guest room for family. It already hasContinue reading “Birds of a feather play together”

Blue Bliss

Clients often tell me they don’t know what they want but this mother of three knew exactly what she wanted in her new kitchen. A double oven, a large refrigerator, lots of storage, and a big island with seating. Once the floor plan and cabinet design with Glenbrook Cabinetry were ironed out, we set outContinue reading “Blue Bliss”

A Master Bathroom Renovation from Soup to Nuts.

I was originally brought into this project to help with material selection only and wound up assisting these clients with their entire Master Bathroom renovation. The biggest issue was that the bathroom was long and narrow and expanding into an adjacent room was not an option. Prior to my involvement in this project the ideaContinue reading “A Master Bathroom Renovation from Soup to Nuts.”

Wayne Basement Renovation

This young family needed more space in their traditional Cape style home and going up was not in the budget so they decided to go down into their dark, completely unfinished basement. This new space, although not without challenges; electrical boxes, an old oil tank, sump pumps, HVAC, sewer pipes, and low ceilings, gave themContinue reading “Wayne Basement Renovation”

You’ll never be blue in this Living Room.

This spacious Living Room in a beautiful old stone colonial needed a little freshening up.  My client wanted to get rid of the salmon and pink that adorned the room and bring in more blue and green.  I felt the best way was to start with the walls and Farrow and Ball’s Cooks Blue, wasContinue reading “You’ll never be blue in this Living Room.”

A Modern Family Room

This modern family room is a great representation of the way we live today. A multi purpose room that is used for watching tv, a children’s playroom, lounging, and entertaining. When clients ask me to assist them in kitchen renovations more often than not they want a design that opens up the kitchen to anContinue reading “A Modern Family Room”

Master Bedroom Makeover

After living in this Master Bedroom for thirty-five plus years, my clients decided it was time for an update. Their stone colonial has all of the beauty and character of an older home, but with that character comes small closets, limited lighting, and very few electrical outlets.  It became obvious that the main objective forContinue reading “Master Bedroom Makeover”

Devon Kitchen Remodel

This kitchen renovation was such a wonderful transformation from the dated and dark space that existed in this beautiful house when my clients purchased it last January. The main goal of this project was to open up the kitchen to their soon to be family room. I felt the best way to remove the wallContinue reading “Devon Kitchen Remodel”

In-Law Suite

One of the things I enjoy most about my profession as an Interior Architect is being hired to reconfigure a space. This particular project was a great challenge because I was able to redesign a garage and adjacent sitting room into an in-law suite. The new dwelling had to include all necessary living spaces asContinue reading “In-Law Suite”

Rosemont Re-Design

This project began with my good friend and fellow Drexel grad Cindy Allan.  Our clients beautiful oriental carpet  was the generator for the decor of the room.  Because the carpet was so ornate, we had to make careful color and furniture selections to compliment it.  This client also had a few family heirlooms like herContinue reading “Rosemont Re-Design”
