Kitchen Design

Kitchen Design

Kitchens are one of my favorite spots in the house to renovate because they are the heart of a house.  Pictured above is a kitchen renovation that I did in Great Falls, VA. Custom cabinetry is a key feature in maximizing the storage in a kitchen.  They are customized to fit precisely in the room which doesn’t occur with standard cabinetry; plus, they last longer and retain their value.  For this project, we chose a gorgeous marble to accent the custom kitchen island and a neutral color palette to complement it.  The final touches included all new stainless steel kitchen appliances, hardware, and accent lighting.

Bathroom Renovation & Remodeling

Bathroom Renovation & Remodeling

I am excited to share this bathroom with you because it is the bathroom of MY dreams… welcome to my master bathroom.  When designing my bathroom, I wanted to create a space that felt bright, open, and, most importantly, clean. Therefore, I decided to opt for a simplistic and neutral color scheme, which would also help me create a sense of luxury in my bathroom. To kickstart this color scheme and design, I opted for patterned marble flooring from Marble Systems. Here, the mix of grey and white is nicely complemented by a snow-white border and marble baseboard – giving the space a distinctive, luxury feel. Since I chose statement flooring, I went for simple walls.  I designed my own custom vanity so that I could have the exact storage space that I needed and my shower giving it a rainfall showerhead, a main showerhead, and another handheld unit.  The last must-have for me was a large tub… what’s the use in your dream bathroom without a large tub to relax and enjoy it in?!

We have our own upholsterers and they are the best upholstery makers in the DMV area.  We have worked with them for many years and this long-standing relationship allows us to produce pieces with amazing quality while adhering to deadlines and budget requirements. That means assisting with sourcing distinctive materials, creating renditions of the final piece, and execution to turn your vision into a reality.

Custom Closets

Custom Closets

Having a beautifully designed and smartly organized closet is key to stress-free mornings. There is nothing worse than your closet being full of dirty and disorganized laundry when you need to get ready quickly or you have a busy day ahead. You should be able to walk into your closet and know exactly where everything is. That’s why customizing your closet to be organized in a way that makes sense for you is so important!

Built-in Bookcases

Built-in Bookcases

Unlike a regular bookcase that you might purchase from a furniture store and have moved into a room, built-in bookcases present a variety of creative opportunities and will pave the way for a more seamless design. They are the ultimate storage solution, turning storage into beautiful decor – the marriage between beauty and function. Whether you’re interested in a built-in bookcase with a hidden desk, or a case framing a window with a little place to sit, we’ve got you covered!

Window Treatments

Window Treatments

Make your house uniquely your own with custom-made draperies and shades made in our workroom. Choosing from a multitude of styles and fabrics, custom window treatments will add color, texture, and style to any room. From measuring the windows to designing the window treatments to the installation, we are truly a one-stop-shop. The trained artisans in our workroom convert each bolt of fabric into custom-made window treatments.

Custom Painting

New paint has the power to self-express and energize moods. Applying fresh paint inside your home gives it a fresh look. We will talk with you to help you decide which paint color to choose by discovering the ambiance you want for each particular room in your home.

Shop The Look: Young Lady’s Bathroom

I’m excited to share with you the final product of a Young Lady’s Bathroom transformation that we completed just before Thanksgiving in 2021! 

The Before. 

Here are a few pictures of the bathroom before the transformation took place. While there is nothing necessarily wrong with it, it was clear that a little bit of TLC would truly transform the space. Here, I feel the vertical stripes on the walls made the already-small room appear much smaller than it actually was, creating a slightly claustrophobic atmosphere. 

The Colors. 

The color palette is much more important than you may initially believe when it comes to bathroom design. In this case, I decided to opt for a rather simplistic color scheme, combining a bright white shade with pastel blue hues. These shades are commonly featured in bathrooms – and for a good reason. This is because they give the room a clean and hygienic feel, which is perhaps more important in the bathroom than anywhere else in the home!

In this instance, we painted the walls in the stunning Lily White shade from Benjamin Moore. As the color white is light-reflective, this instantly makes the bathroom look bigger. 


My favorite part of this bathroom is, without a doubt, the tiles behind the vanity. Handmade by Marble Systems, they feature a simplistic yet effective blue and white geometric pattern that adds a new dimension to the bathroom. We also installed unique ‘raised’ shower tiles in the back wall of the shower, which added a further dimension to the space. 

It goes without saying that tiles are the perfect choice for bathroom decor since they are easy to clean and resistant to the build-up of moisture. This makes bathroom maintenance a breeze! In terms of maintenance, we also decided to install a glass shower door, removing the old shower curtain previously hung by the owner. Again, this is much easier to clean and gives the space a more modern-finish, perfect for a young lady! 

Mirror & Vanity. 

As mentioned previously, the vanity became the focal point of the room once we added the handmade tiles. Here, you can see the prep behind installing a mirror within the space. We used blue tape to measure out the exact location of the mirror and sconces, which were then installed upon the tile for a clean, professional finish. 

The vanity is painted white in order to match the rest of the space. However, it has a stunning marble countertop, which helps bring a bit of luxury into this bathroom and pairs nicely with the silver furnishings dotted around the space, such as towel racks and plumbing fixtures like the shower and faucets. The vanity is also on the larger side, with ten drawers meaning there are plenty of storage options for the user – whether she chooses to store make-up or toiletries in the space.

Once we had installed all of the fixtures, lighting was the step of the process. We chose to hang two wall-mounted lights in the bathroom, which are both sophisticated and practical. 

How To Design The Perfect Powder Room

Whether you are looking to increase the value of your property or win over your guests with a home with the wow factor, you can’t go wrong with introducing a powder room to your property. Not only are they highly practical, but they’re also a great way to put your creativity to the test as you’ll be working within a relatively small place. 

What exactly is a powder room? 

A powder room, sometimes referred to as a half bathroom, is a secondary bathroom space within your home that typically contains a sink, toilet, and some form of vanity. They are installed partly for convenience, due to the fact that you can use them whenever guests come over. If you have your powder room on the ground floor of your home, you no longer have to send guests upstairs when you need to clean the bathroom (which means you can get away with doing less cleaning before a big event). 

How to design the perfect Powder Room. 

Whether you already have a powder room in your home or have recently undertaken some renovations to install one, the difficult part of the process is deciding exactly how you want it to look. Not only do you need to make sure you find a way to maximize the space you have available to you, but you must also remember that having a limited room doesn’t mean having limited design options. You just have to be creative!

With that in mind, here’s a quick look at one of our most recent powder room transformations! 

The Color Scheme.

The first step to designing ANY room is choosing a color scheme or theme. Having made this decision, you’ll find it much easier to source the materials you need from the transformation, from wallpaper to furniture. In this case, we decided to go for a silver/grey/ taupe color theme, using white to complement these shades. This color scheme gives the powder room a sharp, sophisticated edge – like something you’d see in a fancy hotel. 

The Flooring.

Tiles are always an excellent choice for any kind of bathroom or powder room because they are strong, durable, and easy to clean. As a result, it’s definitely worth splashing out on luxury products as they’ll become a long-term fixture in your home. Here, we used Marble Herringbone Tiles to bring some luxury into the space, 

The Wallpaper.

When hanging wallpaper, it’s important that you make a statement. After all, this often becomes the focal point of the room and really ties everything else together. In this case, we installed Brunchwig et Fils wallpaper – which features a stunning nature-inspired design. The name of this particular design is ‘Bird & Thistle Wallpaper,’ and while we purchased this in the shade silver, there are various other colors to choose from, including aqua, green, blue, and red. This is great for those looking to bring a pop of color into their powder rooms. 

The Sink & Toilet. 

When choosing plumbing fixtures for your powder room, it’s important that you think carefully about the kind of products that you want to use. Remember, you have to make sure they fit nicely into the space while also matching the rest of your design choices. In this case, we opted for a pedestal sink – which is the most popular style of sink amongst consumers at the moment. We paired this nicely with a Toto Toilet.  

The finishing touches.

Once you’ve covered all of the above steps, it’s time to start thinking about the finishing touches that will help make the powder room truly your own. In this case, we hung a stunning gold mirror above the sink. Additionally, my client requested that we install this polished brass Woodpecker Door Knocker – which is a truly stunning (and unique way) to finish off the space!

Before and After.

It wouldn’t be a room transformation without showing you a before and after picture!
