This is a sneakily fun book, told from each of the perspectives of the two main characters, set against a backdrop of friendship, motherhood, careers, marriage, and the rest of life’s messy challenges. A great ride!
On our last blog post, we highlighted the adjoining bedroom and its amazing wall of built-ins. Hint :: go back and read it! Here you see the full bathroom reveal ::: the results of lots of deliberate and personal choices by the homeowners. It’s fun to see what happens when you really put a lot of thought into how you use a space.
Here, we see the bathroom in its original space.
Our client imagined, designed, and oversaw a complete transformation of her primary bedroom and attached bath. We are in awe of the final product ::: a row of custom built-ins that open up to reveal an ensuite bathroom and a closet. Wowza!
See the space below, before the wall of doors became a wall of magic 🙂
This is a seemingly simple way to update a room, while adding efficient ways to store treasured items. We took the opportunity to update the brick and add an old wooden beam for the mantel. Removing the chair rail also made a big impact. We love the cozy focal spot that’s been created in this room — adding a new paint color and ceiling lights beckons you to stay awhile.
This is the result of a complete gut job and renovation. The owners chose a wall-mounted faucet to free up counter space and a wall-mounted vanity to give the illusion of more floor space. It works! Next up : the new glass shower door. We love the nearly-hidden drain at the front edge of the shower!
This is one of my favorite summer reads so far this year! It has all the twists and turns of a psychological thriller and all the heartache and tenderness of a love story. I could not put it down. An easy add to your summer reading list.
We are thrilled with the way this turned out! Enjoy the pictures!
This family wanted a major overhaul of their family room :: a hub for watching sports and movies, playing games, and hanging out with their beloved pets. The homeowners made great choices with a crisp blue color scheme and plenty of lighting options, adding a coastal flair and organic elements like the new wood-grain tile for the floor.
Below you can see the old, dark wood bookcase, before it was reimagined as the base for the new expanded built-ins along the same wall.
The door to access the storage room is nearly hidden on the new fireplace accent wall. See the next two pics below :: yes, it’s the same wall! If you look very closely, you can see the seam of the door to the right.
This was a fun project with an older teenager, ready to ditch all the old white furniture pieces and create a refuge and space for study, reading, music, and relaxing. It’s chockfull of thoughtful and personal details, with colors and finishes that were selected with intention and purpose!
This space had a former life as a pass-through hallway. It was made possible by closing an opening that used to sit right where the mirror is, and also by moving access to the adjoining powder room just around the corner. What we gained was invaluable space to perch with a laptop, sort mail, pay bills, and act as a tech hub for the home. Aren’t the gorgeous exposed shelves amazing? And we love the juxtaposition of the quartz countertop with the black penny round tile backsplash that clads the entire wall.
Here’s a good look at the tile after installation, but before grouting. We made sure to add plenty of outlets for easy charging access!
This picture shows the exposed plumbing of the adjoining powder room on the left, and the prior opening to the laundry on the right, now closed.
Here you can see a “birds eye” view of the powder room in the middle and the tech nook on the right. Lots of wood repair and replacement for the floors before they were given a gorgeous walnut finish at the end.
