Our client has collected alcohol for many years and asked us to create a bar that was functional and displayed their amazing collection.  The wish list was a bar that was warm and inviting, lots of bottle storage, space for a kegerator, dishwasher, ice maker, commercial refrigerator, ample counter space and room to sit and enjoy.  We used every inch of the room that we could and in the end…success!  Our client is thrilled and can’t wait for family and friends to enjoy and monthly tastings to begin.  Here are a few before and after pics.

Teen Bedroom Makeover

We all love a good before and after post! Here are a few fun pictures from a recent makeover. This is a teen’s girls bedroom. Our clients recently moved from Florida which is always hard on teenage children so they wanted to create a special room for her! She loves to do art, loved the idea of lights around her room, and wanted to make her bedroom feel more grown up. We collected branches from the forest, washed them and sprayed them. We then suspended them from the ceiling and wove lights throughout.  We removed the large bed frame, moved

Oversized Kitchen Seating? Yes, Please!

One of our clients recently moved into a lovely condo but it was impossible to fit all of her oversized furniture in the smaller living room. There is a kitchen eating area but she has no plans to buy a dinette set since she has a dining room right outside the kitchen. So where can we put an extra comfy chair? In the kitchen, of course! A great little spot to have coffee and read the paper… or catch up on Instagram. BEFORE AFTER

3 Steps To A Visual Punch

Organizing can make your space neat and clean but it can also make it beautiful. Sometimes our clients think that by organizing a space, you make it less interesting or personal. But organized spaces don’t have to be sterile! If you have a bunch of one thing, i.e. a collection, you can still be organized.   We often see collections or multiples of something spread all around the house. In doing this, they lose impact and things look cluttered. Don’t do it.  Instead, gather your collection or multiples and group them together in an area that can showcase the repetition and color blocking
