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”

You had me at wallpaper…

This project was so much fun and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. My client wanted to make a statement in her foyer that tied into the rest of the first floor. Wallpaper is the way to add interest to any room. As travelers, this garden landscape was a reminder of placesContinue reading “You had me at wallpaper…”

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.

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.”

Vibrant vestibule

The inspiration for this vestibule was my clients original artwork by Rainer Gross. Gross was known for his “Twin Paintings” which were almost mirror images of each other. His process included applying thick layers of paint on each canvas and pressing them together to “cure”. Once dried he pulled them apart to reveal layers ofContinue reading “Vibrant vestibule”

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”

This is no mellow yellow

The laundry room is a very important space in a home that should not be ignored. Most people do at least one load of laundry a day and why not spend it in a room that is happy and bright and makes you smile?

Family Room Blues

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. The sofa was the one piece of furniture that was to remain and my client was not too excited aboutContinue reading “Family Room Blues”
