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.

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.

Foyer Transformation

This foyer was fine but a little boring.  It was given some much needed drama by stenciling the walls and painting the doors a gray/black. A stencil was used to add some much needed texture and pattern to this foyer. It now has personality and is a great introduction to the rest of the home.

This home’s entrance was decluttered and the front door was painted and a large rectangular mirror was added to help enlarge the area.

Seasonal Urban Exterior Decor

This beautiful home was dressed for the holidays, starting with a swag on the lamp post.  It continued on the railings in front of the french doors and finished with a gorgeous urn at the front door together with a coordinating wreath. Also shown is a close up of the holiday urn and the railing garland.  All set for holiday visitors.
