Before & After: A Ranch Kitchen with Plenty of Natural Light

Happy Spring!!  Can you believe we made it through another winter?  I feel like this is something humans have been congratulating each other on since the dawn of time.  Spring is something you can't buy your way into and you can't buy yourself into the front of the line - everyone experiences it together.  And… Continue reading Before & After: A Ranch Kitchen with Plenty of Natural Light

Before & After: Sunlight in a Small, Vintage Style, White Kitchen

I am home today awaiting what's called a "Bomb Cyclone" which is a rare weather phenomenon that I had never heard of up until yesterday.  I feel incredibly skeptical, but maybe that's how Floridians and other feel when forecasters warn of a hurricane and they look outside and see a little rain.  This Bomb Cyclone… Continue reading Before & After: Sunlight in a Small, Vintage Style, White Kitchen

Before & After: Farmhouse Transitional Kitchen

This kitchen surprised me.  Some kitchens you just know are going to be an amazing transformation.  Anytime you add a window, open up a wall or a ceiling, there's going to be a "Wow."  For this space, we didn't need to knock a wall down - it's big eat-in kitchen already.  The clients didn't really… Continue reading Before & After: Farmhouse Transitional Kitchen

Before and After: A Budget Friendly Kitchen Remodel

This home is a beautiful, old Park Hill home built in the early 1900's.  It has the original dark wood trim, original tile fireplace, a beautiful entry staircase, intact stained glass everywhere and a front porch I could probably live in full time.  You would not know any of  this though from the above photo.… Continue reading Before and After: A Budget Friendly Kitchen Remodel

Country Living near Denver: Adding Rustic Charm to a Builder Grade Home

This week I thought I'd give you a glimpse of the design process with a fun before photo paired with a sketch idea of "after".  I have a lively young family who just bought a home with some land very close to Denver - it's Country Living 20 minutes away from the city which is… Continue reading Country Living near Denver: Adding Rustic Charm to a Builder Grade Home

Before and After: Ranch House Love in Denver

I'm excited to share some finished photo's of a house I recently wrapped up!  This is a beautiful little 1950's ranch house located in Denver's Crestmoor neighborhood - an area filled with large trees and big yards.  Like many Denver neighborhoods, smaller, period homes co-exist here with supersized homes that are either new builds or over-sized pop-tops.  This… Continue reading Before and After: Ranch House Love in Denver

Before and After Mountain Modern Kitchen Transformation

This kitchen was a lot of fun to work on partly because the "Before" space was so dramatically different from the new design.  Every stage in the project felt fresh and exciting because of the changes happening in the space.
