Clients…they are the heart of our business.  For obvious reasons…we would not have much without them!  As designers we are privileged to walk with our clients through the design process and in so doing we get to know them on a very personal level.  How do you live?  What does your daily routine look like?  What do you value?  How much money do you have for this project? (Nothing like money talks to get REALLY personal…REALLY fast!!)  Depending upon the answers to these questions, each project takes on its own unique “personality” just as unique as the client themselves.

This client came to us at a very emotional crossroads…recently widowed, she had moved into a new home, in a new town to be close to her grown children and their families.  Completely unexpectedly, she had lost her life partner and found herself selling their home full of years of memories and relocating.  Not an easy road.

She had amazing taste and together we had a “clean palette” to embellish.  She had two specific requests; “wedgewood blue” carpet and wallpaper…she loves wallpaper!!  And brass…she loves all things brass!!  We eagerly set out to exceed her expectations, and found a new friend in the process!!

Before: Dining Room

This home already had great bones…crown molding, banks of windows, painted white trim and built-ins.  Our plan was to take it from basic to stunning, creating a comfortable new home that honored the memories all the while easing the transition into a  new chapter.




After: Formal Living room

Custom window treatments, new furnishings blended with sentimental pieces that were freshened with new fabric.


After: Dining Room

From the gorgeous chandelier down to the “wedgewood” carpet, this space hits every note!


Fresh, traditional, perfect brass touches!



Unique artwork in custom frame stands out in the dining room



Grasscloth warms up the hearth room and sets off the white trim.

Welcome home, friend!!
