Suburban Home Makeover

(Move slider left and right to see before and after.)

Like many early twentieth century homes, the exterior trim was painted with a single color. By selecting a studied palette of several colors, in rich contrast to the dark brick, the result is a more welcoming destination for this client. 

Our creation of darker window frames extends the mass of the brick façade.
The adjacent new trim color highlights the details of the secondary building material (stucco).

Renovated Urban Home

(Move slider left and right to see the back kitchen wall closed, and then open.)

Transforming a nineteenth century commercial space into a home was a challenge for these homeowners. They moved from a suburban residence with numerous furnishings that required major curation to work in the new space.


With careful arrangement of their Art and object collection, and strategic use of color and pattern, we gave them a sophisticated look to a large and previously-traditional space.

Refreshed Home Exterior

(Move slider left and right to see before, and then after.)

Our clients wanted to update their home of 20+ years. This request included replacing the Palladian windows, vinyl siding, and upgrading details found in a typical “built for spec” construction. 

All elements combined revived this dated residence to our client’s delight!


We created a warm color scheme, added new lighting, a new entry door, and restated the porch columns.

Mid-Century Modern Home

(Move slider left and right to see before, and then after.)

We created a more period-appropriate color scheme as well as repointed the brick stairs. These changes give new life to this classic 1956 post-and-beam structure with expansive glass walls.

Cedar ceilings and trim add to the warmth of the marvelous period interiors.


The architect intended the building to appear as though it grew out of the landscape; therefore the home’s subtle forest color scheme allows for an accent of a complimentary color

Rear-Lit Display Deck Features Paperweights

This client had multiple collections of art and objects embodying themes such as Food, Visitors, and Underwater Treasures. We assembled images of robust cooking elements up the staircase in the kitchen and hung photos of early “visitors” to the building in the bar.

We constructed a color changing and dimmable light deck to feature their glass paperweights of sea creatures in a glass cabinet.

Finished Installation Allows Painting to Glow in the Room

These clients wanted to complete a bedroom renovation with a painting featured above the headboard. Faced with a peaked ceiling, we constructed an upholstered valance and integrated miniature spotlights that illuminate the contemporary artwork and softened the installation with antique satin drapes.

Draperies and valances enrich spaces by adding texture and soften rooms, making them feel more intimate and inviting. Here are examples of our treatments to two spaces using pleated fabric, hung from vintage cornices that have been silvered, and ripple fold linen draperies for adjoining guest bedrooms.
