THE LAKE COTTAGE
The client wanted a traditional lake chalet. I took his vision and put a modern twist to it. We used dark siding with cedar accents, large bulky stones in natural tones to bring that cottage vibe to the outside. Inside, we used a lot of softer wood tones, while adding stones, and metals to accent the space.
I used a modern railing and floating steps to bring that modern element mixed in with the traditional cottage features. This home was one of my favorites to do by far! And the owner loves it!
THE MODERN CABIN
Remodeling dream. I had the chance to work with fashion blogger Erin from Living in Yellow, to completely transform her cabin. It was covered in an orange wood tone which made the space seem dark. We wanted to brighten it up and modernize it. I began by painting the walls with a warm white.
Then we started the kitchen remodel. I designed their kitchen to be more inviting and comfortable for entertaining. I selected a nice sleek door with an inset cabinet frame. The green color was a perfect way to bring nature into the cabin. We also sanded and stained the floors in a light almost bleached tone, and removed the log railing and stairs adding modern sleek railing and floating steps leading to the second story.
This home is still needing some final touches, but I couldn't wait to share. I will update with more photos soon!
2019 HEARTH PARADE
With Dark/black exterior details, the brick accent in the exterior entry, with touches of wood at the gables, this home immediately sets off the modern industrial vibe. In the interior, I chose concrete details as the focal point of the home. Giving it that natural organic feel.
You will find concrete details in the fireplace, kitchen island lights, the color of the backsplash, and the powder bath vanity sink. I continue the black color inside with the cabinetry and the windows. Using light wood floors and white paint on the walls to create a balance and contrast with the light and dark.
My favorite feature was the waterfall edge on the island.
2018 Hearth Parade Home
My first project with Hearth Homes. I jumped right into designing and executing the 2018 parade home.
The modern details and touches in this home made it a show-stopper. The new owners loved the home so much, they purchased it as is, and wanted it to stay just as I left it.
This home was so fun to put together and I am already looking forward to the 2019 Parade Home (which is in the works).
OLD MADE NEW
A labor of love. This home is my personal space which I have been slowly working to make our own. Built-in the early 1900s this 100-year-old house needed some love.
The minute I walked through this home 2 1/2 years ago, I knew it had to be mine. I saw all the potential that it had. In my personal space,
I love the combination of new and old. I love color and unexpected details. Using modern furnishings, with a mix of my favorite victorian pieces. This home has become my personal project and work of art.
