We designed around the client’s office furniture but added drama to the walls and ceiling with new paint. New purchases were the luxurious oriental rug and a comfy chair, along with custom window treatments.

Family room design, Sudbury MA.
This oversized family room was a challenge because the fireplace was in the center and the TV was in a built-in at the side of the room. The homeowners wanted new furnishings and a more functional layout. We created a “TV watching” side of the room and a sitting area, where 4 chairs sit in a conversation group. New custom window treatments added the final touch. The furniture was purchased from Arhaus.

A complete gut was needed for this tiny 1960 bathroom. The tile wainscoting and loud wallpaper made the room feel even smaller.

This tiny 1960s bathroom needed a gut job too! It also needed a walk-in tub for the elderly homeowner.

What do you do when you have no other place for the TV but over the fireplace and you don’t want to look at it? We designed a TV cabinet that looks like it has always been there!

This client wanted a new look with the current carpeting. We decided to reupholster the large sofa but everything else had to go. Even though we purchased the chairs from Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams, we purchased them COM (Customer’s Own Material) so that we could provide the client an in-home shopping experience for all the fabrics right in her room, where we knew how the light would affect the colors.

The living room in this brand new house with lots of windows was smaller than my client thought and had no perfect place for the TV. We arranged her furniture, and purchased two chairs. The custom window treatments in a deep burgundy added height and warmth to this now cozy, but functional, living room.

You only get a peek at this full bathroom renovation. The 4” deep medicine cabinets provide ample storage, and are electrified, so that hair dryers can be hidden out of sight. The counters are Silestone, which is perfect for bathrooms.

This client inherited a beautiful Victorian and wanted to modernize it in order to put her stamp on it. We stripped the wallpaper and carefully stored the curtains handmade by the client’s mother. This front room in the house became a light and airy music room.

This kitchen area needed is staged so it does not scream “more storage is needed”. New counters, new blinds, and a pendant from IKEA are installed to elevate the feel.

Living room staging, Sudbury MA.
This living room had no personality and too much furniture. Not wanting buyers to think it was too small, we staged it by removing a piece of the sectional, exposing the beautiful floors, and buying a pair of sheers and a few pillows from Bed Bath and Beyond to add hominess.

Living room, redesign, condo, Holliston MA.
What do you do when the former owner’s expensive formal window treatments don’t go with your beach style furnishings? For this living room we purchased a rug from Pottery Barn with all the same colors to pull the eye down. New coffee and side tables, also from Pottery Barn, completed the look.

Eventually you have to replace dated carpeting even if it is perfectly clean! For this bedroom we added custom window treatments, and a new chair slipcover. Stripping the wallpaper and adding fresh paint came before redesigning the furniture layout.

Just because the furniture fits on the wall space does not mean it looks good! The only thing new to this room is the paint color and the blue pillows. Decorating does not have to cost a boat load of money!

Log cabin living room redesign, Winchester MA.
"Can you decorate a log cabin?" the client asked. This room was a challenge because of lack of symmetry with windows and doors. We redesigned the layout and all that was needed when we left was a larger rug!

This was the second floor of a condo with floor to ceiling windows facing a forest. Redesigning the layout to expose them completely, made the room all about the view. The sofa and loveseat now face each other.

A bit of organization was needed for this home office. We added a low budget folding table to create workspace, but everything else was already in the home.

Business office redesign, Marlborough MA.
If you want to encourage businesses to join your organization and pay dues, an "in control of things" and "power" environment should greet them when they visit. Simple changes like repositioning the desk to face the entrance and removing clutter create "power" perceptions.
