I knew I wanted my decorative painters talents put to use with the watercolor feature. I am not one for feature walls, but I will let it slide this one time! She did an amazing job (as always)!

Lake Road Cottage

I have been so excited to share this latest reveal! We took a small cottage and turned it into an explosion of color and usable space. What began as a kitchen remodel, quickly morphed into the first floor. When walking into the kitchen, the first thought most people had was to tear down the wall separating the kitchen and dining room. After some discussion with the homeowners, we agreed that is not the approach we wanted to take. We wanted to keep the cottage feel, but create a space that would still function while entertaining.

HGTV-4

Cue the pass-through. By creating an opening between the two rooms and extending the countertop into the dining room, we were able to keep the wall for cabinetry and allow for a great space to place food or drinks for guests.

HGTV-21

The 1st thing I fell in love with for the space was the Schumacher wallcovering on the back of the bookcase. This was my inspiration for the entire design.

HGTV-5

Custom cabinetry was essential in this space as we needed to use EVERY inch possible. We created a tall spice cabinet where the chimney would not allow us enough depth for a standard cabinet next to the range. We also added pullouts that serve different functions for each side of the range.

HGTV-7

The pantry area was lacking before this renovation, by adding lower cabinets, shelving, a broom closet on the opposite wall with the refrigerator and upper cabinets, the storage space doubled in this area.

HGTV-11

We wanted white walls in order to compliment all of the pops of color and pattern. Check our some before and afters below:

I hope you enjoyed this weeks reveal! Until next time…

Hunting Hollow Master Bath Reveal

Whats better then a room reveal? A room reveal with before and afters!

I feel like its the year of bathroom remodels and this one is a great example of how a great floor plan can really enhance your space. Before the space had a tiny shower that was only meant to fit my eight year old in it, now the space is the perfect size and we even fit a floating bench inside!

On the opposite side of the spectrum from the tiny shower comes a HUGE waste of space with the tub. An area to sit down and get ready in the mornings was very important to my client, so we did some rearranging and gave them a great vanity area.

As most of us know, gray and white are very popular, and to make this bathroom stand out from others, the tile design was extremely important. We ended up using 8 different tiles, many of them are porcelain that looks like marble.

Check out some more b&a’s below!

I hope you enjoyed this reveal, until next week!

10 Best Tips to Style Your Home

Choosing the best pieces to style your home to create that final layer can be a timely task but one of the most important! Below are my 10 favorite tips that I use when styling a project!

1. Artwork:

img_6954

Artwork can be a very personal item that is selected for a home. One mistake that is often made is hanging artwork too high. My rule is to hang artwork at eye level or 57″ off of the ground.

2. Baskets:

img_6305-1img_8800_facetune_13-03-2019-13-52-55img_6727

I love baskets. I often place large baskets throughout a home to store throws in and smaller ones to serve as an attractive “catch-all”.

3. Groupings

Everyone has heard of the “Rule of Three”, which is a good rule to know, but I love to use groupings more then anything. Grouping are a great way to show off a collection of unique items. Pay attention to height and scale when grouping. Varying heights add interest.

4. Books:

Books may be the best accessory of all. They add color, interest and height. You can stack vertically, horizontally, or place a vessel or candle on top for a layered look. Speaking of layering:

5. Layering:

Layering is a trick that many designers use to create a curated look. Using different heights and colors of art, accessories and even pillows is a great way to achieve the layered look.

6. Rugs:

Rugs can add texture, pattern and color to any space. When purchasing rugs for a seating area, try not to “float” the rug, purchase a rug large enough to cover at least the front legs of your furniture.

7. Necessities:

We all have to live in our homes so when styling your home, remember to style the necessities as well! This included, soaps, lotions, produce, oils, spices and pet food dishes!

8. Flowers/Plants:

I have had a blog posts on this topic and feel passionate about how much flowers or plants can transform a space. See How to Incorporate Flowers in Design and Plants in Design by Ashley Moyer .

 

9. Trays:

Everything looks better in a tray! You can place a tray on your counters, ottomans, beds, tables and bars.

10. Pillows:

Pillows can add color and texture to any piece of upholstery or bed. Use different shapes and don’t forget to karate chop those square pillows!

I hope you enjoyed my top 10 tips for accessorizing your home. If you are like many others out there and feel this still seems like a daunting task, give me a call and we can set up a consultation (near or far)!

How to Incorporate Flowers in Design

Today is National Floral Design Day which got me thinking of all the ways flowers can be incorporated into the design of spaces.

The first up is the obvious, actual floral arrangements. Placing flowers throughout your home can give new life to the space. Try using flowers in more places then just your dining table.

A bookcase or built-in is a great place to add flowers. The organic nature of the flowers contrast beautifully with all of the hard surfaces.

A tray placed on your bed, ottoman or cocktail table with a floral arrangement adds a soft touch.

Flowers can also be added through one of my favorite additions to a home…wallpaper!

As well as in tile designs, cabinet hardware, lighting and…

Rugs!

Flowers are also great for adding dimension to a space which can be done through art and sculptures.

The ceramic flowers on these vases add great detail to the centerpieces that would otherwise fall flat.
