Home is so important to me. I truly believe that the way your home is designed will impact the way your life will play out in that home. When you walk through the door does your home make you smile or cringe? When you look around are you reminded of your roots, travels & passions or do you see clutter, mess, and unfinished tasks?
A well-designed home is easy and when life is easy you feel happy.
Proof that new doesn't always mean better. We turned a poorly designed model home in a newly-built neighborhood into a stunning transitional space.
The original kitchen was separated from the dining room by a wall and large columns making the spaces feel small and the floor plan compartmentalized. We removed the columns and wall to connect those spaces and open them up to the adjacent living room. Used to a small island without any seating, our clients were thrilled with the floor plan changes which allowed for a large center island.
Subtle grays, natural woven textures, brass accents, and rich hardwoods bring warmth and create a perfectly balanced neutral backdrop to the bold and colorful artwork. Brass capped island legs, tile with a handmade-look, and glass display cabinets with wood shelves take this design from builder-grade to custom-made.
