This is the after photo of a new home for a client, the before photo is below.

Below is the Before photo of a extreme home makeover. For this client we did architectural design, furniture, lighting, flooring, paint treatments, draperies and accessories. We started with a large drywall room with a cathedral ceiling.

The client wanted a warm, rich and dramatic great room with plenty of room for storage as well as entertainment.  She also wanted a library feel with a coffered ceiling to make it dramatic as well as cozier.  She also wanted an Old World traditional feel in the room and special detailing to make the ceiling come alive.

 We were able to achieve a timeless and classic look with the use of special architectural detailing on the ceiling which matched the detail on the wrought iron railing which was on the walkway on the second floor at the other end of the room. We also created a custom faux paint treatment to look like marble on the ceiling as well as the design which matched the railing. 

The cantilevered soffits transcend into a barrel vaulted ceiling. We used beautiful cherry wood in the recessed panels as well as in the decorative casings and moldings .

There were 2 main focal points in the room.  The first was the magnificent wood fireplace and mantel and the second was the custom,11 foot tall entertainment center.

We selected furniture and lighting to create a dramatic room that was very comfortable as well as functional. There are 2 recliners as well as a large sectional and several chairs.  Plenty of room to relax and be comfortable.

 This magnificent master bath has many unique selections, such as the mirrors, hardware, mosaic tile design in the shower and the pebble stone walkway.

The dark cabinets were chosen because of their simplicity which is also reflected in the modern style hardware.  The mosaic design in the shower is a vertical rainfall design.

The aqua colored countertops and mosaic accent tiles gave this room a spacious spa feel. The pebbles are all rounded and great to walk on with bare feet or slippers.

These clients wanted custom draperies to complement their architecture and not block their view.

 The dazzling custom draperies above were made to complement the inside furnishings as well as the wonderful view of nature outside.  The upper drapery has beautiful luxurious fringe and the ties and tassels match perfectly.

 As you can see above, this home was a blank canvas.  It was before the wood floors were stained and before we designed the fireplace mantel to hold a flat screen TV.

 The clients wanted their family room to be transitional, comfortable and classy.  They wanted it to be sophisticated enough to entertain others and yet practical enough for every day use. 

They have 2 super comfortable chairs with ottomans as well as a large sofa and accent chair.  The cabinet on the left is used to store things.  The artwork goes perfectly with the other accents in the room.  The beautifully carved coffee table is traditional and serves as a special detailed accent in the room.

As you can see, we work with many clients and help each one to have the home of their dreams.  It is fun to see an interior design project come together and see the client so happy.  We love to help others bring their dreams to life. Click here to see our design services.
