Finding a new home is challenging and making that new home ‘yours’ is even more daunting. Our customers asked us to make their new home ‘theirs’ by improving the layout and function while accentuating existing pieces of the home to maintain the house’s original design integrity.

Design & Milestones


Built in the 1950’s their new home was big on space, but short on functionality. The kitchen for this family was completely reimagined. Our design layout was focused on allowing two to cook, with easy access to all appliances. The finishes promote gorgeous Cambria countertops, understated (yet-hot-as-can-be!) dimensional Walker Zanger backsplash tile, two color custom cabinetry, and new hardwood floors woven in. Giving this kitchen a feel of originality, yet a fresh and inviting aesthetic. New window seats, flanked by bookshelves and wine storage is dangerously comforting.


It seems no home has sufficient mudroom storage, except this one. We strove to perfectly balance bringing the ‘outside in’, so with a few wall changes, we replaced old windows to match the existing style. Adding a warm toned bench seat with an ultra convenient closet as well as coat hooks to easily breeze in from a long day. The tile flooring plays softly off the adjacent wood floors by mimicking end grain wood material while having the durability of a porcelain tile. This mudroom isn’t afraid of any season!

Brizo Kitchen Faucet

Elkay Charcoal Farmhouse Sink

Cambria Quartz Skara Brae Countertops

Artistic Tile Melange Azul Matte


Stunning in its contrast of colors, the new master bath continues the home’s aesthetic in the fusion of cool and warm color hues. The porcelain tile walls exude quality and charm with its playful geometry and subtle texture. The brushed brass Kohler fixtures and bold colored custom vanity is the perfect punch to enliven the overall palette.


The staircase was refinished, and worked around keeping the gorgeous railing details. We used the brushed brass accents and black iron as inspiration in the design of the rest of the space.
