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 upgrading to a guest room for family. It already has a bathroom and closet. We halved it to allow a place for sleeping and lounging. The seating area still allows the girls to have a recreation area when guests aren’t visiting.

The Schumacher fabric is a great complement to the purple polka dot valences that are to remain in the room. A custom headboard, embroidered bedding, and bedskirt give this room a little sophistication and make it feel more like a guestroom.

While this updated space, it is still decorated with their adorable artwork, now it is a more “grown up” room.

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 out to look for the necessities like appliances, hardware, and backsplash. The GE cafe in white with sleek hardware options was a great way to modernize this new kitchen. White quartz countertops and white wall cabinets were offset by a beautiful blue island as well as brass accents throughout.

Lots of additional storage in these twin pantries.

Now, this kitchen checks all the boxes for this young family. It has tons of storage, lots of cooking and prep space, a plethora of seating and most of all a classic look that will keep it relevant for years to come.

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 wall separating the two rooms was to create a large cased opening that would frame the new bar seating and create a smooth transition between the kitchen and family room. It also worked structurally since the wall that was being removed was load bearing and aesthetically, it was an architectural detail that matched the rest of the house.The pallete is neutral and classic with white cabinetry and a light grey island amongst stainless steel appliances and polished nickel hardware. The Carrera marble countertops are accented by a Carrera and Thassos marble backsplash in a chevron pattern for added interest.


The final part of this kitchen remodel was the addition of a window treatment on the big beautiful window overlooking their back yard. I proposed a relaxed roman shade so that a minimal amount of the view would be obstructed. The Family Rooms accent colors are navy and coral so I found this great Schumacher fabric and trimmed it in a navy tape to tie the two rooms together.
