Lisa’s New Living Room

May 19, 2022
Lisa is a client I have been working with for a few years. It started with her children’s bedroom, basement den, master bedroom, kitchen, and dining room. So it’s safe to say we work well together. But, of course, after doing all those rooms, the living room was looking a bit old and shabby—time to update.

Here are some before pictures. As you can see, it’s outdated. We removed the heavy drapery that was obsolete. The sofa has seen better days. There wasn’t anything that we wanted to keep. 




As you can see, the design mixes rustic with traditional and contemporary. It’s lighter, brighter, and a lot more appealing design. 

Black Tile Backsplash

October 14, 2021

Black is having its moment in the spotlight. It seems black is popular in just about in every design, from doors to gutters, to kitchens, black is definitely having its time in the spotlight.

So why not a black backsplash? Perhaps you’re thinking it may be too much, but you can add sparingly. Enough to make a statement but not be too overpowering.

Take a look at some of these designs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alternative Upper Kitchen Cabinets

June 24, 2021

In the past upper cabinets in kitchens have always been closed doors. But in the past few years, there’s been a trend towards open shelves. At first, there was some resistance to that trend, but nowadays, more homeowners are incorporating some form of open shelves in their kitchen design, even if just a small area. It’s definitely a more creative way to design.


I personally love the look.

Suspended Kitchen Shelves

January 20, 2021
Suspended kitchen shelves are mounted on the ceiling and not attach to the walls. They hang down using metal supports with either glass or wood shelving.

They provide open storage. Definitely a unique look in kitchens!! They have a contemporary feel and blend really well with transitional kitchens. They can float over an Island or Penisula without blocking the view or light.

The one drawback; you have to keep them clean. They easily collect dust and you need to style them, so they look appealing.
