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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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…

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.

I hope you enjoyed this reveal, until next week!
I am so excited to share this before and after reveal of the latest master bathroom remodel. This bathroom had a TON of planning to get all of the many details just right. Below is the original list that the homeowner was hoping for:
- traditional to match the home
- a large tub deck
- more lighting
First up is the storage situation, or the lack there of. By adding functional storage in the vanity, as well as the vanity tower, we were able increase their usable space.
Hidden storage and the glass shelving in the tub area also helps!
We kept the traditional feel to compliment the home. I love the wood tone against all of the white molding paired with the antique mirror.
The tub area is now a stunning feature that showcases quartz and moldings galore. I love everything about this!
Lighting had to be just right as I did not want to over power the room. The delicate nature of the chosen fixtures adds just the right amount of jewelry!
I hope you enjoyed this reveal!
Hey guys, thought I would show you the most recent design project. I started this master bathroom last December and I am excited that my clients are now able to enjoy it!
I have worked with this family in the past, completing their lower level and main floor, this time it was all about the master bath! I am thrilled with how the bathroom came together and I thought I would give you a tour today.
A little bit about this project: The homeowners loved the blue we chose for their family room and wanted to achieve the same calming effect for this space. We wanted to maximize storage, create a larger shower, a private room for the toilet and a vanity area for makeup.
We started out by completely changing the layout. The shower was always an important detail to the homeowners. I laid out the space a few ways, landing on an option that not only increased the shower size, but also allowed for a better layout for the fixtures.
I commissioned my glass guy to create large mirrors that look like they are almost floating with ambient lighting behind.
The contractor was a saint. The amount of tile detail in this space could make any installer start seeing red, but he took it like a champ and showed pride in it! Even the smallest areas did not go unnoticed.
The vanity and linen closet are custom made from a local shop. The ability to custom make this allowed for more storage and a great design!
So that’s part 1 of the Treeside project. I will share the bedroom transformation as soon as it wraps up. Stay tuned!
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…
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.
I hope you enjoyed some of these ideas, what are some of your favorite ways to incorporate flowers into your space?
