Natural Master Bath

I was so inspired by April and her style. She is so talented and has done quite a few carpentry jobs her self. She told me one of her hobbies was wood working and showed me a few pieces she had made and from there it was so easy for me to be inspired by her and her home.

This master bath is full of natural materials and they all came together and layered so beautifully. The existing bathroom was a good layout and a great size space to work with but there were just a few things that needed some TLC. When I pulled the materials and finishes for this job I wanted to stay true to April, and her home. I started layering different types of natural stone and it just quickly came together. I couldn’t be more pleased with the smooth pebble, the travertine, and the marble accent all layered together. We stained the wood and painted the walls a peaceful, yet masterful color. The lines are clean and well-defined, leaving you with a peaceful, natural bathroom.

That linen cabinet with the frosted glass is PERFECT. I love that thing!

So peaceful, so natural – just love it. Also please excuse my photography skills, they are a work in progress.

Happy 2017! I am loving catching up with completed jobs from 2016 and getting to share them with you guys. I have the best clients and I am so blessed. Thankful for each of you!

 

The Baker Kitchen

This is project I worked on a while back, like right after Presley was born and now she is 18 months! Ah! I’m so far behind, but it’s actually been so sweet and so rewarding to get to go back and see some beautiful finished projects, this being one of them! The Bakers bought this home and knew they were going to need to “love” it to really make it theirs. The first place to “love”, was the kitchen!

We tore down 2 walls to really open things up and added Lacey’s style to make it the perfect kitchen! I love this kitchen and I love Lacey’s style! A few things to note are her counter tops, cabinet colors, and the hardware. They really brought in her style, as well as made the space a highly functional, sophisticated space.

Here are the before pictures:

We removed the wall with the existing refrigerator on it which backed up to the living room and the wall that had the double oven wall unit.

Bye walls! Hello open, gorgeous kitchen!!

If you have any questions feel free to email me for paint colors etc. Those lower cabinets are PERFECT. Love that she was bold enough to go for the two-tone and to own that blue/ slate gray. It’s paired so beautifully with her hardware.

I am slowly but surely catching up over here! Got to shoot two other jobs this week as well. I am thankful for each of you and hope you all have a wonderful Christmas! Coming soon is a master bath full of natural materials – its stunning cannot wait to share!

Re-invented: Master Shower

One of my favorite clients to work with of all time is Dana. She is one of those that knows what she wants, but isn’t sure how to articulate it. In a previous post I ranted about empowering your clients – listen and follow through with their requests (Click here to read all about it).

She is certainly one of those. Her and her husband purchased an old home and decided to “love it”. Oh my goodness I am so thrilled they did and not someone else.

It’s an old spanish home and instead of making it some lame, vanilla renovation; they chose to embrace the Spanish vibe and finish the story.

I love this project, and getting to be a part of it from beginning to end is just dreamy.

Speaking of dreamy here is her Master shower re-invented:

The Bad:

Woah. Hello Austin Powers meets 70’s Spanish design.

I don’t think I need to even list out the bad here, but to sum it up lets just say NOT FUNCTIONAL.

It’s sad that it is such a tiny tub for such a large space.

The Good:

– Natural light is an option

– The arch – arches are a common occurrence throughout the house that keep the design harmonious.

Woah, for a different reason. What a statement shower. We searched high and low for the perfect tile. We did a few custom things with the travertine, but the main thing that I loved about this space was the way we re-invented the space, and the strong spanish vibe.

– We kept the arched entry (the glass doors were a nightmare, but clearly worth it)

– The tile shaped like an “arabesque” is perfect and matches several themes we used elsewhere

-The accent tile also ties in her wood tile floors (dreamy)

– The heavy black hardware also reinforces a spanish design

Long story short we had a lot of obstacles to over come – one major obstacle was working with the arch. We over came with an incredible crew.

Harris Remodeling is who did this remodel and they have an incredible tile crew. Click the link below for more information if you are looking for a contractor in Houston.

From a design perspective this was certainly a challenge, but I love challenges.

What’s a space that you have no hope for? I bet there is a solution!
