Updated: Jul 12, 2019

We are so excited to share several long awaited project reveals, complete with details and before and after photos. Be sure to click through the galleries for each project. Let us know your favorites in the comments below!

1. Timeless Bathroom for a Historic Home

Historical charm is met with modern amenities in this highly detailed bathroom. Filled with character, this home needed a bathroom overhaul that kept with its traditional roots. An outdated tub/shower combination was replaced with a custom tiled shower with decorative inset and niches. A console sink keeps the space feeling light, while the hexagon mosaic floor tile livens up the space but is in keeping with the era of the home.

2. Lavish Kitchen with Glamorous Material Choices

From cramped and outdated to spacious and stylish, this kitchen underwent a dramatic transformation. We knocked down the wall between the kitchen and dining room to open the area up. The new, larger kitchen features ample storage and organization in the Cherry cabinetry. Radianz “Rio” Quartz countertops, glass subway tile in a herringbone pattern on the backsplash, “Electric Linen” porcelain floor tile, and polished chrome cabinet hardware are all glamorous touches.

3. The Artist’s Kitchen

With plenty of room to work with, we were able to design a multi-functional space better suited to these homeowner’s needs. Highlights of this impressive space are the massive double islands. The main island is a typical kitchen prep area, and the second island acts as a studio space for painting and drawing. The kitchen features fireside seating, as well as butler’s pantry highlighted by beautiful new barn doors. The hickory veneer cabinetry with metal accents adds character to the space.

4. Light, Bright & Glamorous Master Bath

This light and bright bathroom wasn’t always so glamorous; the existing bathroom was outdated, cramped, and lacked storage. We gave this space the ultimate makeover, complete with beautiful Carrara Venatino marble tile installed in a herringbone pattern on the floors, 12 x 24 Carrara Marble Gioia tile on the shower walls, Arctic White vanity cabinets and polished chrome fixtures. The curbless shower allows continuous flooring throughout the space, a European trend that has caught on in the US.

5. White & Blue Transitional Kitchen

Built in 1982, the young family residing in this traditional Colonial style home desired a more open concept. We achieved this by knocking down walls between the family room and dining room. A mix of traditional and contemporary material choices gives this kitchen its transitional style. The popular white and blue color combination is achieved by contrasting “Arctic White” and “Ash Blue” cabinetry. Quartz Alleanza “Waterfall” countertops and brushed satin nickel cabinet hardware are sleek touches, while the 3” x 6” glazed porcelain tile backsplash with brown tones warm the space up.
