This project has been so long in the making, I could hardly remember how dark and beige the before was! The client had always struggled with balancing the space. When they furnished the room around 10 years before, they had this custom bookshelf installed on the one side of the fireplace. However, because it was so dark it really made that corner of the room very heavy. The beige on beige also left the room feeling flat. With a bit of convincing, we were able to get them to not only refinish the bookshelf, but also move it to the adjacent family room. This allowed us a really great base to work with, and made balancing the offset fireplace much easier! Normally people want… Read more »

I loved the challenge of designing a masculine, sports inspired interior with industrial elements that didn’t feel overdone for Pro Church Tools new office space. The hanging rattan chairs, ping pong table and salvaged steel boardroom door keeps it far from traditional!
The Butter Rd Project has been in the works for just under a year (if you haven’t seen the install video yet, you can watch it here!) and when I look back at the before photos, I can hardly believe the transformation! The space was an addition that the clients had added close to 10 years before, but had always struggled with the layout. When taking on this project, we really wanted to brighten the space, and make the layout more functional. We started by replacing the flooring with a lighter White Oak, and removed the heavy window treatments. We chose a navy tufted sectional to maximize seating. I love the classic look that it adds to the space, and how it contrast… Read more »
