In this reno, my clients took their 1980's home down to the studs and rebuilt a beautiful PNW style family home. This remodel was designed around entertaining;  adding a well appointed Mother in Law suite for Grandma to be close to family yet still have her freedom and having plenty of space for their growing boys to return home someday with families of their own to visit. (Look closely, to the right of the fireplace is a Narnia-esque hidden door inside the bookshelf to gain access to the MIL suite! Seriously, how cool is that?) Added touches include a reclaimed wood wall that was built out of barn wood taken from property that has been in the family for decades, bringing in personality to the space with a story behind it.  Oh how I LOVE a good story in a home! 

Black & White: Kitchen Renovation 

What a huge difference color can make! To stay within budget, we hired a professional to paint existing cabinetry, put in quartz countertops, a large granite composite sink, and installed a fresh backsplash. While we wanted a crisp white backsplash, we decided against classic subway and opted for tile with a little more personality... large 8x8" white hexagon tile. Installing outlets with USB ports was especially helpful for a large family, it was an inexpensive but functional upgrade.  


Guest Cottage | Before + After

For this styling consult, I used thrifted finds and antique treasures that the homeowner already had on hand. I styled a sweet little guest house for my clients to rent on Airbnb with a gallery wall of funky art, a little warmth in greenery, and a few games and books here and there for guests to use. Simple touches make guests feel right at home. 



Styled for the season

Using items from my clients stash, I decorated this home for the season. She felt uninspired to decorate for fall!  A few hours of my time and she was able to sit back and enjoy the season without lifting a finger, and with her home looking fresh and new in a way she wouldn't have thought to arrange it. 





Staging is always fun when the homeowner has a personality packed space! This farmhouse sold, and they have since built a beautiful new home on property that suits their needs.

In a kids space, I have one rule.  Let their personality shine! They're only kids once... their rooms should be fun, functional, and entirely representing them! 


Moody Master | Personalize your nightstand

There's nothing like hanging a small gallery of your favorite things above your nightstand to bring some personality into the master bedroom! Black rooms are not for the faint of heart, but if you love dark and moody spaces you may just love a black bedroom. It takes guts, that is for sure!
