Guest Room Makeover

This room was transformed from a teenage boy’s bedroom into a serene and soft guest room. The feature wall was stenciled with a modern graphic pattern to add some pop and to highlight the upholstered headboard.  An antique dresser adds interest and it all  makes this small guest room feel simply luxurious.

Landing / Loft Transformation

This little landing was feeling a little cold and my client wanted it to feel cozy and warm just like her inherited treasures.  And now it does! It is also the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of tea and a magazine.

Master Bathroom Renovation

The objective was to keep all the fixtures in the same location but to change everything out, on a reasonable budget, as they are considering selling the home in the near future.  So with this in mind, we kept the space pretty neutral to appeal to the majority of people.

The entire bathroom was gutted and the lighting bulkhead was removed which lifts the entire space.  The same tile was used throughout with just a small accent tile in the shower area.  The tile was laid in a grid pattern on the floor and in a brick pattern around the tub, to give it a little more interest.

Main Bath Renovation

This main bath renovation kept all the fixtures in the same position but the lighting bulkhead was removed to add some much welcomed height to the bath.  All fixtures, including the tub, sink, toilet, tiles and vanity were replaced.  All this on a very reasonable budget.

Family Room Makeover

This was a quick refreshing makeover for a tired family room. A new custom made comfy down filled sofa, a clean lined coffee table, an industrial style floor lamp and a few accessories spruced it right up.

Kitchen Renovation

This kitchen was completely renovated. Half of the wall between the kitchen and the family room was taken out to provide a more open space and to allow light to travel around the home.  The built in counter table was specifically requested by the client for a completely customized kitchen.

Fireplace Renovation from Wood Burning to Gas

This original wood burning fireplace had a raised marble hearth and surround.  The wood mantel had been faux finished to resemble green marble.  My clients wanted a gas insert and a cleaner, more modern silhouette that would fit the scale of the room better.  A flush slate hearth helps to make the room more spacious and the smaller brick slate surround keep the look more contemporary. The simple wood mantel was custom made and finished to match the wood floors.  Adding two new sconces completes the look and repeats the black finish of the gas insert.

Powder Room Transformation

Before, this powder room was large and uninspiring.  To transform it, we added a 1920s mahogany dresser, which was customized into a vanity by adding a sink and faucet.  By also using wallpaper, paint, a new light fixture and accessories this powder room quickly became spectacular.

Kitchen Renovation

This 17 year old kitchen was completely rebuilt. The ceiling was raised to accommodate much needed storage with higher cabinets and to add recessed lighting.  The porcelain tile was installed in the kitchen as well as in the adjoining hallway and powder room.
