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 […]

Gift wrapped

  In most cases, a powder room is a small  square room  in need of some personality.  But, in this case, there were many distinguishing architectural details.   One wall is curved, the ceilings are very high and the trim molding is extremely bold.  The objective was to draw your eye to all of THESE […]

Opening Act

First impressions of a home are established the minute you enter the front door. This is where the stage is set as a preview for what is to come. In essence, it is the opening act. In this home, the dining room is directly off of the foyer. The objective was to create an ambiance […]

Best of Both Worlds

This room offers a unique blend of rustic style with traditional furnishings.  The original white mantel was inconsistent with the cozy ambiance of this space.  An element was needed to act as a bridge between the rough sawn beams and the antique bricks around the firebox.  The mantel wall was the obvious dilemma. The design process: Since […]

Defining Moments
