From the start of this project my client had a really good idea of what she wanted. A family room where she could entertain, as well as a space for her kids to play comfortably.

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 an … Continue reading A Modern Family Room
After living in this Master Bedroom for thirty-five plus years, my clients decided it was time for an update.

Among the options were a wide selection of very nice engineered wood flooring that had the look we wanted but lacked the lasting durability that a kitchen floor demands. We were given the opportunity to go with this incredible reclaimed white oak … Continue reading A Kitchen Floor with Character

The fabric has graphic floral print which keeps the window lite against the dense geometry of the wall paper. The trim and piping are the details that really make this window treatment special while the cornice design … Continue reading A Whimsical Window Design
