Beautiful new kitchen

This job is a kitchen remodel (with some surprise structural work) that took this kitchen from 1984 to the present. The homeowners bought this house knowing that it didn't fit their style, and they knew they wouldn't be able to call this house a true "home" until they could put their creative touches on it. Soon after they closed on the house, they hired us to start making this house their dream h...

How to Style A Kitchen Like A Pro   The last step of a kitchen remodel is often the most overlooked one—styling your space.  By styling, I mean accessorizing the space and bringing it to life.

Surprising Home Trends of 2016 I tend to be cautious when speaking of home trends. Often, the word “trend” scares people as they automatically believe a “trend” is something that is going to go out of style in a short amount of time. While this is often true, there are some trends that have longevity, and from a design standpoint, they are important to acknowledge. Inspired from Elle Décor’s artic...

The kitchen renovation at 1190 West all started because of a broken dishwasher. The homeowners were torn between redoing their master bathroom or their kitchen. They knew they could only do one at a time financially, so when the dishwasher broke, they knew that was the sign to move forward with the kitchen project. The existing kitchen was basic, tired, and impractical for the family. [ca...

Trendy or Timeless: Is My Favorite Decor a Design Trend or a Design Staple? One of my main goals as a designer is to create spaces that cannot be identified by the year in which they were designed.  I never want someone twenty years from now to go in a kitchen I designed and say, “Oh, that is so 2015!” It sounds silly now, but I can easily look at a living room with wood paneling and green shag ca...
