Master Bath Before and After
May 9, 2018
There’s nothing people love more than a good before and after story. There’s just something about seeing how far something or someone has come that makes the final reveal so much more impressive. This project is no exception. The bathroom was dated and because of poor construction it was falling apart…[Read more]

I am taking on a new project this summer that I am very excited about. I haven't started the design yet, but I want to share the "before" pictures because this is a very unique home. It is a 10,000 sf farmhouse with beautiful historic features like 14 ft ceilings and tongue and groove walls. When it is finished, it will definitely be show stopper.

I saw this bathroom today, and it gave me a great idea for those who have dated wall tile but aren't ready for a full on renovation. Either paint your trim and doors to match the existing tile or if it's a terrible color, paint the tile along with the trim/doors. Here is a link to painting tile: https://www.younghouselove.com/how-to-paint-bathroom-floor-tile/ They also use a stencil to create a cement tile look that is super popular at the moment.

Having trouble figuring out how to fill the walls in your home? I started a Pinterest board with some inspiration and common mistakes when hanging art. Don't get caught up in the art itself but rather the placement of the frames.

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in my work that I forget to share what I'm doing. Right now I'm working on the layout of a client's house to help increase the size of her kitchen. Currently, it is a little less than 12'x12' with limited storage. Her house is actually quite spacious, but it was not designed to take advantage of all that space.

By removing a few walls and rethinking the use of rooms, I was able to increase her kitchen to almost 26 feet wide. The whole house will feel more open and function better.

Maybe you are in a similar situation, and your home isn't working for you. Do you want to make changes but just don't know what to do? Or you don't know what changes will make the most sense for your money?

Send me a message and we can start to dream about what your home could be.

Wall collages can be tricky. You want everything to be well balanced with a combination of frames and other decorative items, but you don't want it to be cluttered or choatic. I really like how this one turned out for one of my clients.
