Having a hand in designing and updating this architecturally iconic home in Gladwyne was not only special but a lot of fun.

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. Beautiful Matouk bedding with a custom headboard in Schumacher fabric. My client was interested in … Continue reading Birds of a feather play together
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 out … Continue reading Blue Bliss

When clients ask me to assist them in kitchen renovations more often than not they want a design that opens up the kitchen to an … Continue 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 for … Continue 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.

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 as … Continue reading In-Law Suite
