Talent on Loan

This project was located on top of a mountain in Colorado. It is an inspiring place where there is a deep appreciation for the beauty that nature provides in its pure state. The previous owner of the home had painted all of the cedar beams chocolate brown. First on the priority list for this remodel […]

Fooling Nature

A faux finish is created on cabinets that mimics driftwood.

Small Packages

     This space may be small . . . but the impact is grand!  A monochromatic color scheme makes the area look large.  The multiple textures give it depth and interest.  The room is anchored with the “weight” of the illusion of a carved limestone mantel treatment.   Interest is enhanced by adding a small […]

Forever Young

When taking on a kitchen remodel, considerations of form and function are critical.  But, when it comes to the aesthetics, this is where your personality can really shine.  This feisty gal, in the prime of her 80’s said,  “I have spent all of my life decorating to please others . . . my friends, my […]

Fill in the blanks

How exciting!  An investment was made to upgrade kitchen cabinets from white to wood.  But one piece of the puzzle was missing.  The doors to the pantry and  entry to the garage remained white.  This abruptly interrupted the visual flow of the richness of the new wood cabinetry.  A  gap of white remained as a […]

Many times when we look at cabinetry, there is a tendency to apply a finish as if it is one single architectural detail.  In […]

Champagne Toast

  I love participating in designer events. It is an opportunity to work with a fun loving and creative group of people. This one was called “Collaborating For Success.” It was organized by ToTheTradeOnly and had a whole new twist . . . it was almost like that HGTV show “Design Star.” Each designer chose a small […]

On the Bright Side

  Bold contemporary patterns . . . rich reflective fabrics . . . sleek shiny accessories. All of the elements are in place to present a statement about current design trends. This project took place at Luxe Home Interiors, a full service interior design and furnishings studio located in John’s Creek. They wanted to showcase […]

To Boldly Go

The retro style is becoming increasingly popular. Along with it comes the return of the “accent wall.” Unlike the harsh solid colors used in the past, it creates more of an impact when it is embellished with an intriguing wall finish.     This client’s job made it necessary to relocate frequently so all of their furnishings […]
