Before and After

Here's a little before and after of a sunroom we recently refreshed.

Dark walls, an undersized rug, and monochromatic drapery made the sunny room feel small and heavy.

 After: A painted beam and shiplap ceiling was added. The existing club chairs were reupholstered, and a skirt added to give them a more tailored look. New drapery (from Thom Filicia for Kravet), and a fresh new wall color (Mega Greige from Sherwin Williams) and a larger, brighter rug, make a huge difference!

New Custom Home

A three level custom home we designed last year is wrapping up this week, and features a lot of nice features we wanted to share with you.

The great room has a wall of arched windows overlooking the pond at the rear of the property.
The kitchen is highlighted by timber beams and a sculptural range hood flanked by open shelves.
The formal dining room has a beautifully coffered ceiling.
The master bedroom' tray ceiling has intersecting timber beam work.
In the study, a door is hidden in the judge's paneling.
The master shower is accented with herringbone patterned marble.

A Whole House Renovation

Several years ago, I designed an extensive expansion and renovation to a lackluster ranch house in a fantastic old neighborhood. One of the images that has been "pinned" most to Pinterest from this site is the schematic drawing of that house. (The original post is HERE.) Thought it was way past time to share some actual photos!

A little "before and after" of the front. The house went from 1600 square feet to nearly 5,000.
A close up of the new entrance. Wide front steps, gable end trusses, and large columns with bracketed details create a sense of arrival.
One of the original bedrooms became the formal dining room, with tall wainscoting and coffered ceiling.
A new master suite was added at the rear of the house. The bedroom features another coffered ceiling.
The new master bathroom.
The new stair hall overlooks the back yard.
A large vaulted living space on the second floor separates the two children's suites.
The owner's son enjoys this spacious vaulted bedroom.
While their daughter's room is Princess-perfect with a double tray ceiling.
Another suite is tucked under the roof over the added garage. Interesting ceiling lines give it a lot of character.
A large covered porch with stone fireplace expands the main level living area into the outdoors.
This view of the rear highlights the challenging slopes the project presented. The alley-entry garage is actually a half story above the main level of the house.
A final shot of the new front. The beautiful landscaping finishes everything off.
