A bedroom restyle is always a great way to pamper yourself. You spend about 30% of your life in bed so why not surround yourself with a look that soothes and nurtures?
Take a look at this recent spare bedroom redo. We reused a wonderful steamer trunk as a nightstand to add an element of whimsy and character. A new upholstered headboard replaced the harsh wooden bed frame. We added soft window coverings which are a MUST for bedrooms to create "cozy". Simple art and accessories keep things calm and relaxing.
(Note: I just love disastrous BEFORE shots. They make my work look even more impressive! LOL) Enjoy!
Kitchen and bath remodels are not the easiest projects to tackle but they sure do give you a lot of bang for your buck. In most areas of the country, you can expect better than 75% return on investment in the value of your home for dollars well spent updating these areas.
We just finished a hall bath project that added style, flair and personality to an otherwise dated and boring bathroom.
We replaced everything in this bathroom. New ceramic tile with mosaic glass border in shower from ProSource, contemporary vanity from HDC, new light fixture from Lamps Plus and hardware from BB&B, brushed nickel faucets and fixtures from Home Depot.
The wall color is a deep eggplant from Benjamin Moore's Affinity palette called "Kasbah".
I wanted to try a different look for the mirror so I took a more narrow floor mirror, removed the kick stand and hung it higher on the wall leaving negative space above the backsplash.
My client loves the new look.

It's that time of year... the holidays are almost over and we're already starting to look to the New Year with Resolutions and Hopes for a Happier, Healthier 2014. The design world is busy too. Trend forecasters and buyers are looking for the things they believe you'll want to snap up next year.
For example, the color forecast experts at Pantone have chosen Radiant Orchid as their 2014 Color of the Year. Let's wait and see how their choice will influence the color of your world in the New Year!
