Remodeling Process: Getting Inspired |

I love helping homeowners realize their dreams for their spaces. It’s the most amazing kind of satisfaction to help people enjoy their homes in a new way. That first meeting with the client is always a bit of a question mark. Some homeowners are very prepared, having done their research, knowing exactly what they want. … Continue reading

Easy DIY: Jewelry Tree |

So I needed a jewelry tree, but I couldn’t find any that I liked. At the very least the ones that I really liked came with a very high price tag. And let’s be honest – I like a good Saturday morning project. So here’s what I came up with: I’ll do my best to … Continue reading

Deconstructed Remodel: Small Kitchen Makeover |

Small spaces are such a great challenge and I LOVVVVE a good challenge. This couple approached me to remodel their small kitchen, primarily because they wanted to update the space.

You … Continue reading

Deconstructed Remodel: Rustic yet Elegant Master Suite

This was such a fun remodel to do… When I first met this young, stylish couple at their house they had a small handful of items they knew they really wanted in their master bathroom: a freestanding tub, a chandelier, a larger shower and more counter space. But the truth was, the bath needed a … Continue reading

Renter-approved: Electrical Tape Pin-striping |

Once again – I’m left to find creative solutions for dealing with the fact that I live in an apartment, can’t make permanent changes, can’t put holes in the wall and can’t paint the walls. Everything needs to be easily removable, leaving the walls damage free. I realized that electrical tape has a couple of interesting … Continue reading
